      I'm new to CNC and just pickep up a combo mill and lathe with cnc
      control. Its has a bobcad driver pack , three axis actually made by
      Amaheim Auto, machine is set up with stepper motors. My question is
      I'm looking for direction on what to use for software and to control
      the driver box. Its got a 37 pin input connector. I,ve got the pin
      outs coming. He lost the pc card that was the interface. Can anyone
      direct me to what to use for software and an interface . Can I drive
      the driver inputs with a low cost solution? Please point me to help!!

      Thanks

      The newbie!!!

      ... 37 pins, sounds like it could have been an AHHA card. If it was the case it shouldnt be too difficult to interface a printer port to it. Mach3 should

        Mach3 should drive it ok. But you are going to need those pinouts.
