Some notes on bringing back a Pro-lite 1000 from the dead.
Many years ago, my school district spent boo-koo money on 3 CNC machines, a router, mill and a lathe. Including some very complex and expensive software (MasterCam). Sadly, these machines have not gotten very much use, and eventually what with computer and software upgrades and all, sat abandoned for years.
My former student, now the only tech teacher in the school has managed to get the router back on line using Linux and mostly open source software. Great job, Joey. I retired.
