Acorn CNC Controller Board Conversion
(adventures in improving my machine's skills)

I was asked to beta test the Centroid Acorn CNC controller board.  With my ambivalent love of the Micro Kinetics system on my mid-size mill, it was  a very good move once the machine was converted and I had learned the Centroid software.  The conversion would add an incredible amount of features to the system, Helical Plunge being one of the biggies in my book.
