    Operating hours for Centurion 6 or 7 control

    I am looking for a VKM3 or similar Milltronics machine to replace my Bridgeport and I was wondering if there is a parameter that shows the hours of operation and / or "on" time for the mill. I thought I remembered something like that in the control manuals I have but I can't find the reference now. I'd appreciate any help. I'm trying to start a small shop with one of my grandchildren and we need something tougher than my current Bridgeport. More travel never hurts either.

    An hour meter was optional, it would be wired and installed on the side of the electrical panel. If that’s not present there’s really no way to know.

    Hey Stagen,

    Thanks. I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part, or maybe a memory crossed over from another control.
