Paper tape

Postby Danberman » Tue May 31, 2005 9:41 pm

Hi, we just got a cnc mill from the 1970's that runs on paper tape. I have built a circuit using a LCD screen, keypad, and PIC to make it be able to connect to a computer and make it truely Computer numerically controlled, but i need to learn how to write codes to tape in order to interface it. I have found a list of how to punch out the ascii codes (A-Z, 0-9, etc.) but I have no idea how to use it. If any one has any info on this please let me know
