Vinyl cutter project is on hold. I am currently working on resurrecting this D&M 6 Milling Machine.
The original PC controller is long gone, so I have purchased the “Breakout Board Plus” from Bob Campbell and I’m working on getting the PC running Mach3 to talk with the D&M Machine.
The new board is installed, so hopefully today I will get some movement out of this machine!
We’re hoping to start machining some aluminum or mild steel on this machine. We are running V-Carve software so we likely won’t be doing much precision machining, more decorative type work.
Does anybody out there have any experience with this particular machine? Drop a comment if you have successfully modernized this particular mill.
In the background you can see the Spectralight lathe – that’s next on the agenda.
