Hi Ken.  You may be correct on this. In fact, I think you are. I picked 
up this particular unit for old time nostalgia.  In the after glow of 
which I thought I would experiment with it hoping that Rev might be 
coaxed to run on it without modification to the Mac.  However, reality 
often bites.  In seeing how early a Mac unit might work well with Rev 
and this CNC project I may be stuck with using a 6100 model because of 
the limitations you are pointing out.

I am by first training an archaeologist and sometimes can't let go of a 
functioning past!

In any case the CNC project is a very practically based real world 
project and will be made to work on the first reasonable equipment 
platform which may be an old Windows box.  But, I would then work back 
through my Mac inventory.  It seems that a small, practical CNC program 
for the Mac which will run on pre-OS X computers might be useful to some 
people I have begun to run across in my searches.
