    Just a wee update; I managed to get hold of a connect 121 manual and a mach3 tut printed version and I have saved it to usb. also I now have a fully working cnc lathe. Woo Hoo! and a big thanks to Irving for helping me out with lots of much needed info. The motor control card was busted so I ordered a new one and now we are now up and running. I just need to learn how to draw in cad and which software to get. I think if I can get into the swing of things I will keep it. Failing that it's going back on the bay and hopefully i will get a manual one.

  5. well done Scotty, and thansk for the thanks :)

    you can always drive the CNC lathe manually via MACH3... easier still with a pendant... here is a nice homebrew example but you can buy commercial ones...
