    Re: Dyna Myte 2400 and Mach3

    I have no direct experience with the DM 2400, but the control is quite similar to the DM 3000H lathe that I have. That 25 pin connector that you're connecting to is most likely an RS-232 serial port...

    I just tried to attach the .PDF file, but at 73 megs it's too big.

    Re: Prolight 3000 Turning Center

    Hey Morgan,

    Yeah the Ahha control definitely has some oddities. Let's see if I can remember a few... It is radius mode only. X coordinates are negative if you use a front tool post. Most (if...

    Looking at the tormach.cps, there is only one place where the M998 is added.

  19. Replacing spindle bearings on a D&M 5 CNC Lathe

    I've been working on replacing the electronics on this little D&M 5 lathe and converting over to Mach 3.

    Re: DYNACOM.EXE WANTED!!!!!

    The 3000H is the larger of the two. The 3000 is the bench top model. The stand is part of the 3000H.

    Looks like the 3000 weighs about 550 lbs whereas the 3000H is over 1000.
