So My brother and I converted a PM-940V to a CNC machine.

-Stepperonline drivers and motors
-Mesa 7176 card
-Currently has a touch probe, tool height probe, limit and homing switches, misting, and a work light.
-We have the piston for an automatic drawbar working (we still have to attach to to the drawbar and make the mount)
-After a few rebuilds and GUI changes - LinuxCNC version 2.8.4 (i believe) and probe basic for the GUI

As we started adding features, I moved the control box from the tool cart to the mill itself due to the number of wires that ended up going to the control box.   Now I only have the network cable from the cart to the mill (as opposed to 14 sets)

I see the head tilts. If you have a rotary axis and a spindle encoder then you can hob gears. (the tilting head is the hard part to add if you don't have it)
