I have a AXYZ 6000 purchased in 1996 that has worked great and continues to function well; however, if the controller goes, I have been told by AX
YZ that I have a boat anchor. Do not own boat. What options are available to refurbish the machine. Still running on old DOS system.

Thanks for your help.

There are far too many options to list.

Do you want to replace the motors?
Is the machine stepper or servo powered?
If servo, do they accept step/dir signals?

If you just need to replace the control, there are several inexpensive options.
UCCNC
Mach4
LinuxCNC
and several others.
If you can do it yourself, it should be between $500-$1000, but you can do it even cheaper if you really need to.

My unit has stepper motors. I want to be able to change from the old dos system to a windows based system. As you can tell, I am not computer literate. Need a better way to communicate with router controller. I guess I am looking for a complete communications/control system to operate router.

Then it's really a pretty simple retrofit with any of the examples I mentioned. You just need top rewire the stepper drives to the new controller.
