    You'll need to tell us what software it's running..

    You will have to give more information this looks like a version of linux if it is is it is way out of date.

    Sorry but the crystal ball is broke.

    It's running the original Conect software.

    The only information I can provide about that, is there is still a copy of the manual available on John S's website - https://www.stevenson-engineers.co.u...ct%20lathe.pdf

    I downloaded the software and manual from john s site which runs the original hardware, I cant get the offsets to store in conectl file, i suspect there is some instruction in the manual i am not understanding.

    Unfortunately and sadly John has passed away.

    I'm trying to remember if John said the original software was a Dog's dinner, or a POS.
    I miss his brutally honest replies.

    In all honesty, you're very unlikely to find anybody who still knows about the original software.
    Even if the lathe is still working with the original controller and software, I'd be making plans to upgrade it to something more modern, and with support.
