I know, somewhere this must have been asked and there is a TON of valuable reading here but I did not see it (Yet)

I am converting a Enco 13x40 lathe to CNC. I will be using Mach3 and only the two axis. The Spindle will be manually set but I will use a speed sensor to obtain the spindle speed for any spindle required operations ie. threading.

I have the PMDX126 with the smooth stepper on my mill and I want to use a laptop with the Ethernet cable for the mill.

Should I use the 126 or with the 122 board do what I need it to for this application.
From what I am reading, without needing a speed controller, I would only need the one port for the smooth stepper on the 122 vs the 126 that would need 2.
Thank you in advance for any insight.
