Well the parts arrived yesterday I have been hard at it
the photos are on there way everythings gettin there
just a few things am stuck with stepper motor wires each has 8
which do i use for the drive cards
orange and white/ black and white both pair joined
red and white/yellow and white both pair joined
also do I use the potentiometer wires black,red,blue
and below/ connected to the spindle motor there is an inductor
there are 4 wires here two large black,red the red runs into the inductor
and two small wires pink/white.
I have looked every where for info on this lathe can't get much
if anyone has a manual a copy would be most appreciated.
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.

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...
