I have the original Craftsman Compucarve A series CNC.
I had it in storage for several years. I decided to get it out, clean it up, and get it going again.
Unfortunately I found that the 18 pin cable ribbon to the spindle head was damaged by a rat.
I called Carvewright to get another one but I was told that the ribbon was discontinued since 2007 and I would have to upgrade my CNC to get the 14 pin ribbon. That would cost hundreds of dollars.
I can’t afford a new machine, so I’m hoping to get one from someone who upgraded their machine.
I sure appreciate it.
