RotarySMP:
I couldn't resist when this came up for auction..



There is not much online about such old CNC electronics, so I decided to a video as a tribute to the electronics and computor engineers of the 1970's. While it would be cool to get it going as is, without any manuals or knowledge of the schaublin interface with the Data General Nova, that is not feasible. I will remove the controller as a complete module and send it to a museum or collector. It wont get scrapped.


Muzzerboy:
Fascinating stuff! Yours was machine #12 in 1981 judging by the label. The date codes on those ICs slightly predate that, which makes sense.

Jealous as hell, will be watching!

RotarySMP:
Oh yeah, thanks for pointing that out.  knew there was a reason why I suspected it ws from 81, but lost track of why I thought that.

Whatever cutting oil was used in this machine dried up like varnish. I am having to tear it down further than planned to clean this out, as the slides are stuck down.
