Converts a manual router speed controller to CNC control by connecting the potentiometer of the controller to a servo. The servo is controlled by an Arduino board connected to the parallel port. The Arduino decodes the PWM from the computer into a servo position.
The speed controller used for testing was purchased from Harbor Freight here: http://www.harborfreight.com/router-speed-control-43060.html
