Time: 3 hours
- After physically setting up the router, I sought to connect it to Mach 3. I installed the Parallel card into my computer and installed the drivers without significant issue. After watching several videos to try and configure Mach 3 with my Windows 10 PC, I found out that windows 10 is not compatible with the parallel port drivers that need to interface with Mach 3.
- I also broke my camera!!! Dropped off the tripod and now the lens is jammed. Another project for another day.
- Solution: I will buy an ex office desktop with Microsoft XP and a parallel card. This will be my workshop PC and I will attach my old 24″ monitor to it.
Purchased new computer.
