    I also have a Trionics handyman controller has been updated and working great. But the mechanics of the machine is wearing out. It's got a clunking sound in High gear. Y axis has .005 backlash.
    know for the big problem who made the machine trionics but there hardware and software on it. Any ideas. It looks identical to every tiawan mill out there.

    Re: My mill Conversion

    So is this tread dead? I just purchased the same machine for 2K. Everything works great and in mint condition. Was hoping to upgrade to PC. Just wondering if any of you have had any luck. Thanks in advance.Attachment 403780

    This was my first retrofit, and was so glad to get rid of the slow control. First retrofit it with Mach3 then added the KFLOP board and was able to have closed loop with glass scales. Also made a real Z axis for it where the quill was driven with a ballscrew instead of the sloppy power feed gear.I remember someone stating they was able to use the DB25 port on back of machine and bypass the old control, but you are still bottle necked by the stepper drives being very slow.
