I don’t think the author of that article means getting a PC XT computer to run his old software. A PC XT is a 4.77mhz 8088 which won’t run his required 32 bit Windows XP operating system/Mach3 etc.

Many are still running Mach3, I do. I run it on fairly new modern computer hardware.

Thanks Jim he might be pointing at an old PC. I haven’t seen an XT in years😂

I can’t wait to get my hands on a Super Gerbil board, building a machine just for it!

Hi Paul

I just noticed your super gerbil board. Is your Stm32f103 grbl source available? I know there is a GitHub stm32 version but it 1.1e and hasn’t been updated.

I have a f103 board laying around and would like to compile and test the firmware if possible.

Thanks

Jim.
