New Break Out Board

Postby sully3535 » Tue May 28, 2019 5:19 am

Where can I get a new BOB for my older CNC Shark? Needs to have parallel port connection. I don't want to buy a new computer or cad program.

Are you using an older parallel port shark with Mach 3 software?

If so, your controller board had the stepper motor drivers on it and is somewhat hard to find in the used market. I replaced mine with a gecko g540, which has proven to be very dependable. It may require some reconfiguration of Mach 3 , but it will be worth it.
