hello, this is my first post. a friend has asked me to get his cnc up and running. it is a 1983 vintage thermwood c20/model 35 (?), with a 2'x4' table, var spd 12 hp perske spindle router, and works with touchpad input only (i think), running cartesian 5. i have not seen it yet. does anyone know this machine? has anyone done this type of conversion before?
i suspect a controller compatable with pc interface and appropriate software will be required. i am just curious if any has gone down this path before?!?
thanks for looking, this is a great board.
