Replacing the Monitor on a CNC Router
From contributor B:
I am in the process of commissioning a Rover 346. I've discarded the existing monitor and cradle and replaced this with a 15" ACER LCD monitor. I cut the plastic face panel to accommodate the rear of the monitor and mount the monitor in the hole using adhesive silicone. The result is a monitor with better resolution that also looks better than the original.
From contributor C:
My only concern with this is that the monitor has little or no protection from flying debris, falling objects, operators, etc. I still suggest replacing the existing monitor with one that will bolt inside the cabinet.
From the original questioner:
I actually found a local used electronics store and bought a monitor for a few bucks. I guess now that flat panel monitors have taken over, there seems to be a flood of good regular monitors for our application. I had to remove the existing Biesse screen and make a plexiglass window. It's working fine and the operator likes it better than the original.
