Yep.... I can see that one bad click on the old browser will get you
in trouble for days....

A few(several) years ago, I saw a S/36 that ran a plywood plant,
including
the control of the cut of the veneer to make the plywood. The operator
had
to tell the S/36 how big the log was,and it controlled the biggest lathe
you have ever seen.... As I recall, they had some sort of ascii device
controller that you could attach direct to the S/36.... It wouldn't be
any sweat for the 400 to do it, with somthing like C or Pascal to handle
the funky control languages of various cad/cam devices....

The guys in the woodworking list are still giving me hell about
computers
and woodworkers, soooooo I'll just suffer in silence.....
