So after suffering from some of the biggest headaches I’ve had to deal with in a long time, the control box for my router is completed. I wanna thank my friend [Dave Russo] for coming over and not only help solve the issue with CNC (which of course was only a single wire connected incorrectly) but also for helping me fix my main PC and upgrading to a Solid State Drive. Much thanks my friend.
So back to the CNC, the general premise of the project was to make up some space that my old PC tower and the CNC control box itself was taking up. Granted now a lot more space on top is taken up, everything is now in one location and even has a nifty little PSOne screen acting as a second monitor for the PC!
Though this isn’t perfect, it does the job. I will be trying to mod the PS1 screen so it outputs RGB as right now the resolution isn’t very clear going through a VGA to composite coverter and it’s quite wavy to boot, so something will need to be done, but for now I’ve got it working and have been able to do the jobs for [ShockSlayer and Bud] that I had put on hold because of the snags. I’ll have an upcoming post about those in the future as well.
But for now, sorry for the lack of posting and activity but there have been lots and lots of things going on that haven taken up my posting time! I did shoot a video of this but my camera was being stupid and wouldn’t compensate for the lighting so you might as well have been looking at a white screen. May still post it, but we’ll see. More to come soon!
