IF I were you………..
buy sell on the controller for £500
make a USB controller
use the machines motors and cables
buy new 36 volts 10 amp psu
3 toshiba tb6600 drives
buy a leafboy usn break out board for £109
buy the box
ferrite rings and iec chassis socket
this is exactly ewhat I have
run it 36 volts 2.5a
1/16 micro stepping
the screws are 16mm fat with a 5mm pitch, run mach3 at 760 steps per.
buy DOUBLES of all your elastics so you have a COMPLETE SPARE controller
wire it up YOURSELF so you know when it goes wrong you can SIMPLY FIX IT
P.s as you want a mere 1220 square machine, i dictates that you don’t want to do a full sheet anyway, so a smaller machine will do you.
IF you buy this isel I can tell you actzacery what to do, even as much as get the guy who made my motor mounts make you a pair, as I have the exact machine
the makita rt0700 mini router is the BEST for the money, plus you can buy them in the shops locally – plus get back £40 on the base – i did!!!
down load mach3
down load the sheetcam tng demo – corel to g-code software 2.5d
these are both £125 each – use you exisiting machine – usb!!!
export from your ORIGINAL drawing hpgl – pen 1 layer 1
EDIT you will need a z axis stuff is the shizzlickles, in so much as you WILL NOT FIND better cnc stuff
PLUS these things are MODULAR – in effect you can lengthen the X USING stock stuff
PLUS you could EVEN simply go the panasonic minas a4-a5 servo set upIF you found a used set, then it would be sweet
