Just so many ways to do a toolchanger.
 It just goes to show how versatile Mach is :)

Well I think I have a plan.

I will use a Smooth Stepper to get two parallel ports and use one to control the brake out board I have now from
port 1 and add another brake out board to port 2 to handle the TC axis and I/O's to and from the PLC.

What do you guys think?

Should work fine.
 Added cost of the SS and BOB may be almost as much as getting a module for the PLC to control the axis but the added benefit of the SS is that it will allow much more than the PP will in terms of frequency and smoothness of the pulse.
 You would probably be better handling the I/O from the PLC to the computer  over Modbus rather than through the port.
