I have been doing extensive work on the blue mill in the back of the ERP for a few weeks now and am in the process of putting on the final touches on the electronics. Mike B helped me diagnose some funkiness that seems to be attributed to the parallel port cable that was bundled with the machine. Since all the cables that we have on the shelf had been cut in half, I’m looking for a cable donation. It’s a standard type parallel printer cable with a male DB-25 connector on one end, and a centronics connector on the other. If you bring a working one in, you will be bestowed with much praise and glory. Just reply to this thread indicating you will bring one in, and when you do, simply set it on top of the mill.

Since I feel wires and connectors are some of the most useful components, I urge people to donate ones in good condition (with the exception of RJ-11 phone cables, RJ-45 network cables, TV coax cables).
