Re: NovaTurn Servo retrofit AMD Gizmosphere iBOB2 PCIe x1

Thanks, I had not got my head around what you are doing. If you have been everywhere for a decent small cnc lathe like I have I am impressed with the Novaturn and think what you have done very interesting.

The only way I found could specify it was as a neutral threading tool but it chooses not to use it for profiling...
