Joypad

Postby Lameiii » Mon Feb 29, 2016 12:00 am

I had been using a Gamepad (not Joy stick) for moving the router around when I'm setting up for a cut. I was on a XP computer with Mach 3 and it worked great.
I've now switched to a laptop with a UC100 cable which is working fine. However when I load the joypad software it doesn't work.
Has anyone had experience with Joypad's or used any other software/device that will let me control the router instead of using the keyboard?

I used to use a Logitech RumblePad 2 with the Logitech Wingman Software and that worked fine with all versions of Windows up to 10 when I stopped using it. I expect it works fine in 10 though as it worked in 8.

These days 99% of what I do is 8x4 sheets so there's no need to move the router around manually.

Google search threw up this from the Logitech support site

No idea if it will work though.
