Motivation seems to be stuck in the 'supply chain'

Weather, for july, is poor which doesn't help  :(

Iím still lurking

Actually just trying to get back in the groove, girding up my loins to return to trying to fix the turret on my Beaver TC20. CNC lathe. Suspect it the baldor SMCC  card. They are rarer than hens teeth and contain a custom control program. This card acts subservient to the main Siemens 820T control and drives the tool disk and driven tool motor.
Iíve sourced a slightly later version which is coming from the USA in a week or two so have been setting up Hyperterminal on an old Win XP laptop to hopefully program it when it arrives.

I am still working on my shop. Trying to get it to the point of where I can work comfortably.

I have gotten heavily into 3D printing and got me a couple of lasers, I keep getting distracted.
