    I recently picked up a Denford VMC 1300 from my local scrap metal merchant.

    Here it is on the way into my workshop.

    I have no idea what condition it is in but I figure that it was (probably) sent to the scrap yard for a good reason.

    My plan is to find a permanent place for it in my workshop then try and diagnose what does and doesn't still work. If its the electronics side of things I'll probably retrofit a LinuxCNC based solution.

    However I have no idea how to figure out what is and what isn't re-usable so it will be a steep learning curve, any help/advice gratefully received....

    Chas,

    post up some good pics of the control cabinet when you get time, and we can point you in the right direction.
