Just wondering on availability of 2 x 7i29's anywhere? My initial thought was to use my original servo drives (on my mill retrofit) with mesa hardware (5i24, 7i49, 7i44, 7i73,7i84) with the option of going with 2 x 7i29 if my drives were no good. I have been having problems with the reliability of my original 1980's analog drives, so i thought no problems, i will get 2 x 7i29's.

Problem is I've been waiting around 4 - 5 months for them to get made. And also want to order other mesa stuff but dont want to pay twice for shipping to Australia.

I didnt mind waiting a few months, but im now wondering if i do eventually get these drives, will they be supported in the future. If i have a problem and need one in a hurry, what choises do i have.

Really happy with the mesa hardware im using on my mill and router. Just wondering if sourcing 7i29's in the future is going to be problem. I also understand these drives are for old brushed dc servo's, and demand is probably low.

Cheers

Matt

The 7I29s are at assembly currently but we have a pretty good sized backlog of other boards
now (1000s)
