    Anybody still using Mach3?

    That's correct, and now that I think about it I probably could use it with Linux, because IIRC, after programming the keypad, it just acts like a USB keyboard and regurgitates whatever key sequence was assigned to the key. If I wanted to change a key, I would need to temporarily hook it up to a...

    Anybody still using Mach3?

    John, Thanks for posting the shopping list, very useful information. If I ever decide to "come over to the other side" I should be able to continue using the existing touchscreen monitor. I rigged up a small programmable keypad for common commands and easier numeric entry, unlikely I could get...

At the time I setup this machine, the general sense I got was that...

    60G compressor with no motor - what's it worth?

    My $6.44 Shop Vac

    We were at the cottage (Quebec) during the long weekend, turns out that if you're going to have a garage sale this is the weekend of choice, there were about 30 within five km from our place, and they post a google map with all the locations so there easy to find. Seems like the out in the...
