Bought one and am trying to find any info about it. Appears complete without indexer. Looks like it was driven by a pc based indexer and would be very pleased to find some info on the pin-outs.
Even casual manufacturers literature would be helpful. They are out of business and I had never heard of them before.

Thanks in advance, Phill Pittman

Is it posible theat the controller was made my Microkinetics?

I am working on one with an optiplus controller (look under motor controllers). I sent away for the manual and they were very good. My controller is no longer being made.

Thanks eric. I had used Microkinetics in the late eighties when I built my first home made router and they were really helpful. I couldn't remember their name.

Is that a Phoenix lathe you are working on?

( mine won't get to my shop until Thursday am.)

Thanks, Phill

It belongs to someone else. As far as I remeber it a pheonix, but I could be wrong. I need to go back and help him get it all running. He ordered the controller for the PC and thier windows software package.
