Hello @ByrdcraftDesign. Are you wanting to keep the PC in the same room as the CNC machine?
@ByrdcraftDesign so what kind of setup are you trying to do? In the garage are you just wanting the carving machine and PC monitor along with keyboard/mouse only and keep the tower inside the house?
@ByrdcraftDesign that could work by just funneling Monitor, keyboard/mouse connection cables through he old coax cable hole. You could also look at wireless keyboard/mouse, but the PC tower will need to be at least 30 feet away from the mouse and keyboard. You wouldn't have worry about wiring for the keyboard/mouse with that option.
One other thought to this setup is your keyboard/mouse and monitor would be susceptible to saw dust. Long as you wipe off the keyboard/mouse and monitor after every sawing session, they should be fine long term.
@ByrdcraftDesign where will the docking station be, in the CNC machine room?
If so, I don't see the benefits of a docking station over just running the wiring or monitor wire (if go with wireless keyboad/mouse) through the coax cable hole. You'll still have to run wiring through for the docking station and have an extra purchase expense for the docking station.
@ByrdcraftDesign can you send us a picture of the hole? I think I know where you're trying to go. You must be wanting to make the hole look more cosmetically semi-professional instead of just having a hole in the wall. Am I HOT or cold?
The picture would help us.
