    Tormach's smaller one is about twice the weight of the bobmill 375, which is bigger than I wanted.
    I am still waiting its arrival.... I hate waiting.

    Learning is Slow

    I wish I knew someone that is close by using one of these.
    I am learning but it would be faster to have someone that could run through and do a checkout run for me.
    I have run it through a few paces, but I still have a long way to go.
    I am learning BobCad, BobCam, Mach3, BobArt, BobNest, Alibre and the machine itself, My time has been limited due to the various home projects.
    I have a couple of small jigs I want to make, I should make them on the mill out of aluminum, but they are very simple and it would be easy to do it on a drill press.

    here we go...

    What happened? The web domain named BobMill.com has been locked and is now displaying a web page which appears to indicate that the Domain may be for sale!

    I'm doing a survey of machine tools to see how many use the PC Parallel Printer Port. If I can't find the information online then I'm asking in the specific machine tool forums. Anyone know if BobMills use the PC Parallel Printer Port for communicating with the controller?

    Bobmill

    You might try the following URL for their contact information. They don't list how the 4 axis controller is fed on their specification PDF. Good luck.

    The Mill with Servo drives uses an Ethernet Connection to talk to the Drives and Master Control Board. It also has a USB connection to a remote Ethernet card. The PC is an Industrial type PC running Windows 7, with a touch screen.
    I swapped the Mach3 Screen though to one I'm use to.
