    Default Replace control board in CNC

    I have a 25 year old AXYZ 6000 series machine. Two of them, in fact.

    I have been tossing around the idea of buying new machines for a long time now, but it seems that I can just replaced many of the parts on them and keep them running with no problems. New blowers, rails, boards, motors, etc... all this can be done, and I can replace with top-of-the-line parts for much less than a new, comparable router system.

    The one snafu is this:
    051116: A2MC Controller Rev.18a - CNCShop US

    I am told, by AXYZ, that once this goes in my machine... I'm done.

    Is this something that someone out there can repair... replace... rebuild? Put in a totally new one to run the steppers, and so on, but I might have to use different CNC software (currently using VCarve)...?

    Looking for any help at all.
    Thanks,
    Jon

    Jon;
    You would do well to replace the control with something off-the-shelf.. Many out there.
    You could pull a control off a scrapyard machine, or go centroid, Gekko-drive.. try Automation Direct.
    If you like the iron, there is nothing stopping you.
    Except having to figure it all out.
