I hope this is the right place, if not forgive me and maybe shove me in the right direction. I have acquired an old Techno Isel (approx. 15 yrs old) 3 axis gantry table. I would like to make an engraver out of it but the Techno rep told me that I would need to retrofit it to servos at +$5k to start with. This is an old stepper motor driven system with no software or manuals. Is there someplace the get the stuff I need or can I use something other than Techno ie. generic/cheap/free software? I have an old DOS computer and a newer Windows XP system I can use.
