    started a topic Matsuura conversion.

    Matsuura conversion.

    We bought a Mc 500v2 for about $1500. This is a early 80's machine. Dc brushed servos - yaskawa drives. (we reused spindle and servo drives)

    Linuxcnc with mesa hardware

    $439 dollars in mesa interface hardware gave me
    Ethernet interface to computer
    6 axis analog interface (+/-10 and diff/ttl high speed encoder counters)
    Total of 118 i/o.
    Expandable..

    (I have way more i/o than I need - I could have gotten by cheaper but I went for ease.. ie remote io so I could put the i/o board where I needed it.)

    Really quite strait forward. No surprises. A few odds and ends need to be wrapped up. (Things like coolant, oil level and graceful way out of a botched tool change - the last 10% that take the longest)

    We added a gear with gear teeth sensor for rigid tapping.
