No, but still looking. I have a EMCO Turret that I am modifying. I hope to start the TRIAC mod this year and make a new one from scratch.

I was in to see the guys at Denford UK a few weeks back, they are really great. I thought I would be there about an hour, got there at 11am, left at about 3pm felt like I had been there 10-30mins. One thing that I have found out is that the forum was set up as a place for the guys to post a sort of log of customer questions and sort of self answer. So it would serve as a way of being able to look back for info. They never imagined how much WE have made this forum such a key place to be for those of use who love the machines. I think it has gone so well because the guys there are as into the machines as we are, come old or new. I once tried to get information from boxford, I was shocked because the first question was which school are you from, from that point they wouldn't talk to me siting we only deal with educational establishments!

I love to read about what people are doing, mods, tweaks, adjustments, whatever we can do to make our machines do what we want regardless of what the specs say :) Once I get some stuff done on the house I'm on with my Starturn 5 coversion to a novaturn ish spec using newer denford control rather than the usual mach3 route.

I would be interested in working with you to make one if you're interested?

I have a Triac and I got the Novaturn about a month ago. It's a superb machine and way more capable that I ever imagined.
