I took a quick look I was running a job at the time. I have just one fan in front. There is a grill on top, but no fan on mine. I believe the FAN is 12V the label was facing the grill so couldn't be for certain. I can check the wiring in a bit to find out for sure.

Do you replace the motor power supply too? or using the one that it came with?

I heard from PRecix and they confirmed 12v fans.

I am keeping the motor power supply. I like a transformer I can power the grid with.  This toroidal tranny is huge.

Man I tried reaching out to PRECIX before I started this project and got zero response. I figured they moved on... Glad they are getting info to you. I wanted to talk with them about several things. For one, switching to rack and pinion, but honestly the belt system is working pretty decent.
I thought about ordering replacement belts to have on hand in case of any issues. This company:

Seem to carry the right belt.

Ya, that's a big chunk of transformer there. I read on a forum where the capacitors often go bad after a while, and was going to replace them. Never did though.

I am speaking with them. They want to replace the old controls with LinuxCNC using mesa 7i77. I am discussing with them on this. But what has happened is the PRECIX controller was running QNX connecting to the control board and the guy at Precix that knew all this stuff passed away sadly. So they are looking to update the old controls when they come back defective to LinuxCNC.
