I'm just about to dabble with a stand alone for mill, does anyone have any experience of a stand alone controller for lathe?

From memory John S posted about using one of the cheaper* Chinese controllers, but I don't think it was on here. IIRC it was either HSM or the Mach yahoo group, but my searching hasn't found the post I'm thinking of.

The only people I can think of still around are either Gary @ Zapp as he used to sell them, or Komatias, but I'm not sure if he's used any lathe controllers. I know I had a chat with Komatias about mill controllers when I was considering one.

* by cheaper, I mean one of the cheaper proper full feature controllers, not the DDSCV basic controllers.

John mentioned the sub 400 controller on Joules' thread on Mad Modder, I'm reading through the whole thread for any useful info,
