Boxford Duet desktop CNC
« on: July 02, 2018, 08:07:13 AM »
Acquired two Boxford Duet desktop cnc machines in an auction.
The software that came with them is DOS based and i would like to update them. Luckily the manuals i got have the schematics.
I also would like to use the existing electronics if possible.
The DB25 pin-out shows the pin numbers and functions but there are a few I'm unsure about.

Has Anyone convertered one of thes yet to Mach 3/4? There are some old post but the are incomplete.

thanks, John

Not much help to you but due to the shrouded nature of any available information from Boxford when I converted my VMC all the existing electronics (except the VFD) were discarded in favour of the more modern stepper drivers, etc.
