    CNC 3040 T-D first run...

    Just bought a 2nd hand 3040 T-D for a killer deal off the Facebook classifieds. Plus he was only two miles away and delivered it.

    I had to make up a parallel cable. And dig out one of the DELL OPTIPLEX 740 PC with a DB25 connector.

    I installed Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3. Luckily I have held onto the OEM install disk for all of these years.
