I purchased an old ( late 80s ?) NEF 480 Lathe. It has a dead i/o board. will not power up. when I powered up the machine, the power section ( main resistors/diodes etc where power comes in) got very hot- the main resistor (white ceramic) was glowing :-( - I would like to get the machine working in it's original form but will consider updating the controls. Any one up for a challenge?
Willling to hire a tech to come in an do an evaluation. I'm in Los Angeles...

Good day dmelacom, I'm looking at purchasing a Gildemeister NEF 480, the machine looks like it is in great condition but the old control I understand is a real pain. The current owner has to manually input his programs, no RS-232 capabilities. I was wondering how you made out on your machine.
