They appear to be from Intelitek, Prolight 1000 CNC machining center.

We bought them from a person that got them at an auction and then sold them to us.

We have to do a deep dive into their condition and functionality.

It appears that the control system requires a Windows 95 machine (whee), we may do a controller transplant that supports modern software.

  2. Check condition of leadscrews (wear)
