Re: Response time

I haven't tried to get it running under Dos. I downloaded an emulator and the dos turning program to check it out. It's simply not user friendly, too many years of using Windows based programs.

Re: Response time

It did come with a Tutor keyboard, so It may be a Dos machine. I downloaded Dosbox and played with it a bit today. I'd forgot what a pain Dos was. I've all but made my mind up to use Centoid Acorn and do a conversion with modern stepper drives. A license of VR turn is more expensive than a their mot...

Re: Response time

I have considered it's a dos machine. That presents another problem. I haven't seen a Win 98 computer in a very long time and I'm not sure a dos emulator would work.

Re: Response time

I'm still waiting on a response from my Denford US distributor about the price on a license for VR turn after more than a week, seems like it would have been a quick reply. Could anyone give me an approx. cost on a license? I'm not 100% sure the electronics will function as they should since there d...

Response time

I inquired about buying software a couple days ago, what's a typical response time? In hindsight I guess what I should have asked about is actually buying a license.

Re: Latest new guy

Another noobie question... The control box lists power as 240v but the mains plug looks like it's 110v and plugged into something. Do I just replace the plug? Is it actually 110v or 220v? Did this lathe use a transformer? Next, is there any software that has a free version so I could check the spind...

Re: Latest new guy

I saw the weight mentioned in a couple spec sheets but they didn't specify shipping weight or just machine weight. The machine could easily be half of shipped weight so I wasn't sure. I talked to the instructor of the tech school where the lathe was used and he said 4 students moved it out of storag...

Latest new guy

Hello all newbie from Western, Ky. in the US. I just purchased a Mirac from a tech. school to be picked up later this week and it looks like I'll have a ton of questions before I get it working correctly. My first question......It's listed as almost 500lbs. It just doesn't look the heavy to me, but ...
