    Hardware request

    Hi, I would like to make a hardware request: when I bought the MK3-9 card for my 4-axis CNC I also purchased the flyer (the one in the photo) with its adapter to be connected to the MK3-9 CTRL port. Since I recently replaced the Pokeys57-CNC controller (with which I used the MK3 handwheel without adapter) for my small lathe with a new MK3-4 I would like to be able to use that handwheel again since I had paid a considerable amount and I don't need that wirelles. Basically I ask for an adapter to be connected to the DB25 connector of the handwheel that through a proprietary interface connects to a USB port on the PC (if you can do it with a USB stick I think you can also do it in direct USB). I understand that the design and construction of such an object must be justified by a market request but if at an "honest" price I would buy it immediately. For now I manage with a membrane keyboard and a potentiometer connected to the Jog port of the MK3-4 but I miss the flyer and the wirelles one between cost, taxes and shipping, it really costs too much for me.

    The wired MPG can be connected directly to the MK3 / 9 controller. Or am I misunderstanding your problem?

    yes, misunderstood; this is what I usually use on MK3-9 which I would also like to connect to MK3-4

    Re: Hardware request

    There is an Arduino project example in API. It can be expanded to create what you want.

    Proverò a guardare gli esempi ma sfortunatamente non ho le competenze per farlo.

    I will try to look at the examples but unfortunately I don't have the skills to do this.
