I am an instructor for a local community college and have an General industrial Icarver cnc. A previous instructor removed one of the control boards and we have not been able locate it or locate a replacement. Are there equipment available to retrofit a new control system for this router. I would like to purchase a new router but we do not have any grant money avaliable for the purchase of a new one. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum, Michael...

I hope you can find what you are after.

IMO, control boards would be like hens teeth....

i hate to state the obvious, but i would start by contacting the manufacturer to see if a) parts are still available, or b) do they have a controller upgrade/retrofit for your machine. if you already did that, i apologize!

you may want to post a few pics of what hardware you do have left. i am not familiar with that brand, but i am sure there will be some light shed by others.

Thanks for all the replies. I have all the equipment with the exception of the one control board. I may be able to get new stepper drives and motors with any related hardware to replace the electrical systems. I teach industrial maintenance, so if necessary I can fabricate most any mechanical part that is needed. I was told that General Industrial is no longer in business.
