Hosted by Marty Escarcega

Marty Escarcega put on t presentation about CNC conversions and basic CNC information.  The thrust of the discussion involved the conversion to CNC of a currently manual machine, but included information about upgrading a current CNC to a newer style controller.  Types of motors, Stepper vs. Servo was a major topic of the morning.  The benefits and pitfalls of each type were presented along with types of controllers that a person converting a system had to choose from.
