    I'm just about to dabble with a stand alone for mill, does anyone have any experience of a stand alone controller for lathe?
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    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,
