Nubie, I want!

I signed up at the CNC place. I need to ask them how to CNCize the dang thing.

I modified the old control board some. I replaced all the ICs, just in case they were "walking wounded" from the earlier mishap. hehe. I also improved the throttle, and changed a resistor to use the LEM 300 instead of 500.

The cheap ATMega8 from china is causing me problems. It isn't allowing me to do optimizations, and it isn't recognizing the new crystal oscillator. Maybe I got ghetto ATMega8L's that china changed to ATMega8-16PU's? Oh well. I'm just wanting it to work for the Alternative energy fair on Saturday.
