    Carvewright / compucarve cnc retrofit?


    has anyone ever tried to retrofit a carvewright / compucarve cnc?...i was thinking msybe mach3 or GRBL controller. Etc....

    If not i was wondering if someone eould be willing to give me some direction

    it does use small servo motors not stepper motors

    and it has an ac spindle motor.

    could be a nice project....my concern are the servo axis motors..not sure how i would deal with those.
