    The control PC (Quad core AMD A10 5800K APU Win 7 Pro 8GB 1TB) with a 15" LG LCD that is proven to work well and all setup with numerous custom settings/scripts could also be purchased if so desired.

    $4000 for controller and motors/cables.

    I have one condition...I need to keep it in service until my upgrade is ready (won't be long).

    Just to add, this control box is wired for both 110 and 220. 110 for the drives and a router if that's what you run with and 220 for spindle usage (by swapping a jumper).

    I will also include a XY corner zeroing plate with scripts to use it.

    It could be used on either a PRS or PRT, but you would have to check your racks for width. It's off a PRS where the racks are 0.5" wide with 30 tooth pinions on XY and 25 tooth on Z.
