Hello everyone,

Two weeks ago, I started my first CNC build, referencing this site has helped alot! Although, I have searched here and the web, and cannot seem to find anything in depth with my question. I bought a break out board that uses a LPT port connection, and after checking all my computers in my house, realized that they didn't come with the LPT printer port.
My question is... Has anyone had any success using the USB to LPT port adaptor cable? Or any success using a Lpt pci drop in card?

I have read that Homemade CNC machines are finicky to begin with, so I thought I ask the question. I am using Mach 3 and a 5 axis breakout board ( I bought from ebay :|).

Thank for all your help
