In a stroke of great luck, Mitsubishi Electric offered to repair the Meldas 330M controls on our Tree Journeyman 325 Knee Mill for free since we are a non-profit. After a super fast turn around time we have the unit in hand and the control processor is up and running. We have to rebuild the parameters but this is the type of thing we love. Hacking away at some machinery learning and making things work. The more the merrier on this project so if you always wanted to learn about 1986 CNC tech or the Meldas 330M =p come out and join us.
