Re: I bought a Grayhound Skill Crane and need help.

Re: I bought a Grayhound Skill Crane and need help.

Yeah, the Holland Computers power supply is standard one used in many Grayhounds. I've never seen the one you have. New one will not come with wires, so you'd have to reuse the ones you have, but I can send you a picture of mine so you can see how the connections are set up. It should be simple enou...

Re: Clean Sweep Operation Issues

Sorry buddy.. I don't have much experience with Clean Sweep. Sounds like a problem with the board, so you might be better off contacting Smart Industries (www.smartind.com) to see if they can diagnose the board or provide any troubleshooting tips.
