    Re: So this is what happened.

    Age is a state of mind and only an issue if you allow yourself to think about it.

    Re: Acorn and Rays feedback

    Hi
    I think I started this thread.

    I was not expecting the feedback I got.

    Re: a couple of queries

    After your last regarding working through Win 7 to get to Win 10 I decided to have a look for Win 10 on ebay. There are a number of 100 percent rated ebay sellers who are offering what they describe...

    dear CS900
    Thank you that was exactly what I was looking for. Replacing the lead screw would have been a pain so now I will go with the existing build.

    Re: a couple of queries

    Hi Gerry
    Unfortunately it is a matter of timing. I bought a refurbished Dell with Win7 and a parallel port to have another go at Mach3 (the last Dell died) before I learned about Acorn. Initially I...

    dear cncuser1

    Mostly I enjoy reinventing the wheel which is how I managed to create what I think is a relatively unique design for the clock my movements. And I am not in any sort of hurry at all...

    a couple of queries

    HI
    When I last posted I was trying to get the trial version of Mach3 to talk to a Taig lathe I had installed steppers on. I have now done that and my ambitions have taken a giant leap.

    Nice to hear about your time in Cronulla. I originate from WA and went to Northam High School 1948-1951. Northam is about 100 ks east of Perth.

    Hi eBirdman
    Thanks so much for the encouragement and the invaluable insight about the origins of Acorn. I was impressed by Acorn when I first started to read about it. It made sense that there is a...
