hello people, kindly I need help: I would like to convert an Emco Compact 5 Cnc lathe, with stepper motors, economic Vevor servomotor (all already in my possession) and Mesa card.
I would like to know which Mesa to buy in order to manage everything and be able to run G76 and G84.
I state that I do not know anything about programming!
Is it possible to do it?
sorry my english!

I used a Mesa 7i96 on a small stepper powered lathe project.

I used  a regular VFD and 3Ph induction motor. The 7i96 can be set up to output one channel of PWM signal, so I used a cheap PWM to analog board to convert that to the 0-10V analog signal for the VFD speed control.
