    No, I never used it in the end.

    The cyclone made chips at the weekend just gone
    Still controlling the turret semi manually at the moment but machined 15off parts and the accuracy is amazing all within 0.0004Ē of each other most within 0.0002Ē
    Metal removal rate is impressive compared to the smaller lathes I own (orac and boxford bud both cnc)
    Will be smiling for month once the turret is controlled by linuxcnc

    Cheers. Paul

    Update (which is somewhat late)
    Turret now under full linuxcnc control via a turret controller based on an arduino
    The turret controller was designed and build by a fellow member on this great forum Doddy for which I will be eternally great-full
    Turret was converted from the original 110v three phase motor and break to a nema 34 stepper motor and 3.5-1 reduction gearbox. It doesnít make for the fastest tool change ever seen but perfectly acceptable and so far 100% reliable
    I am still blown away by the accuracy of this 25 year old lathe all be it I donít think it as seen a lot of use
    I would like to get a four jaw Chuck option, I have a suitable Chuck just need the back plate or dimensions to manufacture my own

    Cheers. Paul
