I am new to forums and internet groups. I am a 30 year machinist, but limited CNC. I have a CNC mill that is about 30 years old. It works great but I am having problems connecting it to a computer. I can program anything into it from the controller panel, but a decient size program takes forever. The machine? Jet Mill with Microtek 2800 controller. I have an RS232 output and have been tryinh different combinations of crossover and null cables. The manufacturer does not have anything about this, if it is still the same people. I just want to be able to use a computer to send programs to this mill.
Has anyone out there heard of or had any experience in this kind of setup?
