Anytime you guys need me over here, I am just a PM away. Holler at me any time. I'm constantly checking my phone.
Thanks to everybody for the quick answer to my question about parts interchangeability. I picked up a non-working Sears CompuCarve rather cheap. I'd like to get it running without too much further investment, then if I like it and use it a lot I'd be willing to put more $$ into it. So my plan right now is to get the missing parts from ebay. There is a flexshaft auction that ends tonight. Thus my need for a quick answer.
Thanks again to everyone!!
