    It's home[emoji16] the iron is great. We'll see about the floppy not reading issue. I am going to try to get it running with a couple things. If not it looks like the drivers and motors are going to...

    Yes that's the plan. Use any and everything already there that will play nice with the acorn. If I can sell off some stuff that would be awesome. There is a dedicated Centroid cnc forum with an...

    I've been looking at retrofitting an older dedicated cnc mill that's had computer failure and it's far more expensive even if I can get a good machine base. The acorn system and pro mill with...

    Ok I understand what you are saying about the rigidity. But why would I have to refit everything else? Centroid said all the hardware will run. They did say that it needs micro 1 drives to run the...

    It would be dedicated to the machine,not getting a bunch of stuff installed cluttering it up. But thanks for the suggestion. I will check that out. I saw the list of vids but haven't gotten into...

    Yes it was built on a manual bridgeport By Centroid from what I gather. I don't want a CNC only machine that is usuless with a bad operating system. Worst case scenario with this I still have a good...

    It does. It's a professionally built by Centroid machine from the 90's. I talked to the tech guy at Centroid and he confirmed that. He said acorn will run the setup perfectly. It is still possibly...

    I've got a touch screen laptop that meets requirements except the SSD which my brother will be installing. You say phase converter for 3 phase power? I have a pretty large shop that actually was a...

    Yeah for sure! I'm trying to see how scared I am to fix this thing. As long as it's no crazy specialty tools I'm pretty confident in my ability to fix any machine. Just never worked on any thing...
