The CNC project was doing well and Microspot was selling a programming station for CNC machines through Bridgeport Machines in Leicester. Roger Holmes had modified the Apple Writer word processing software from Apple and we were selling it as CNC Talker, which allowed users to create CNC programs on their Apple II and save them to floppy disk. The Apple could then be connected to the CNC machine and the program downloaded through the serial RS232 port. This replaced the use of punch tape. If during running, the program was edited, it could then be uploaded from the CNC machine and saved on floppy disk. We made the whole system, which comprised an Apple ll and dual disk drive with monitor and printer. It was housed in a metal case and mounted on a table with wheels that could be wheeled around the workshop and connected to a number of different CNC machines.
