EMCO pc mill 50 finds a new home.

Here it is in place after having two neighbors help me wrestle it out of my car. The computer will go on the side.

    Great acquisition. I have one of my own and you will enjoy using it. BTW, if you are not planning on a conversion you should be able to get copies of the original software from EMCO. I was wondering though what make and model the small shaper is next to the mill.

      Thanks! Its a beautiful machine. It was already converted to a Gecko 540 drive, steppers, new VFD and e-stop switches. I am in the process of setting it up to work with either mach3 or linuxEMC. The shaper is an AAMCO 6″ shaper. It was practically given to me by the seller who got it with another purchase. I hope to get that working but all of this equipment has come with its steep price discount – each one has needed an overhaul!
