I just aquired a Denford Orac lathe, and it seems to have a bad controller. I think id rather convert it to full MACH3 control. I have ready most of the threads i could find on other peoples experiance doing this, and they all seem to have used Gecko drives and a breakout board like the ones sold at cnc4pc.com This seems to be an expensive route. I was wondering if the controller sold at www.hobbycnc.com would work in this application.

I am also quite confused on how to setup the spindle drive motor to work with MACH3. I know i will need a DVM, but i dont know much about them.

Any help would be great.

Thanx
