I cannibalized some parts out of the old Bridgeport stuff  to supply the 12 volt control voltage to the vipers today .

Next step is to get  220 power to the mill.  One leg will supply power to this little transformer (control  voltage for the viper) and both legs will supply  220  power to the high voltage power supply
there will be another power supply for the breakout board and one to run the relays for the air solenoids ect. slowly working through this.

I am watching this one. I have a R2E4 series 1 cnc boss 9 coming in 1stof March. Have to decide what I will do.
I am not big on the financial side so I have to do it as less expensive as possible.

The Larken Automation Viper stuff is looking real nice about now. I am a bit worried if I have to change the encoders or not.

Good job on your machine.

Thanks for the reply Archie.

So to make a quick synopsis with equipment:

3 Larken Viper 200 drivers
1 breakout board
Power supply.

Would that about do it?
I noticed you were looking for a 5vdc power supply. What was that for?
