Here is a youtube video of it drilling a hole then thread milling it to accept a 3/8 - 16 bolt. This was my first test on the machine.

Very Nice! I like how you managed to re-use the old console with an Allin1pc. Are you running it fully touchscreen?

Its partial touch screen and partial keybord and jog panel right now. I am working on getting more of the original jog panel hooked up right now. It would be nice if the centroid on screen jog panel could be dragged down below the dro and worked with the touchscreen.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will see if the on-screen virtual jog panel can be further improved in the future.
