Probably a good deal, even if the CNC controller is sketchy

Centurion 6 control runs a Pentium class, industrial, single board computer, on a backplane.

The CRT screen, if not color, can be easily replaced by a LCD monitor, and you can have full color display. Should be a plug to push a keyboard serial plug in to, inside the front display housing too.

I ran a Milltronics with a Centurion 5 controller in it, at work, and eventually bought it's sister machine, when it went up on CADC. Milltronics was pretty good about support on these old machines.

I'll add that according to a service tech that used to do a lot with these machines, the only part that is actually three phase, in the machine, is the VFD that runs the head, the rest are tapped off 110v/120v.

According to him, put hots on #1, and #2, on the VFD, and jumper #2, and #3 together, and it should run fine on single phase power.
