    EMCO PC Turn 50 Lathe

    Hi Everyone, this is my first post on this forum forgive me if this question is in the wrong section

    I have a very good condition EMCO PC Turn 50 Lathe with operating PC, tablet etc that I am thinking of selling to fund a CNC Mill having just purchased a manual Lathe.

    The EMCO was given to me as an upgrade had been purchased at the college where I work, my question is how much should I be asking for when I come to sell it as I have no idea at all about its worth?

    Many thanks, Ken

    Do you think it would be unrealistic of me to ask for around $480 / £300? seems to be a lot of kit for that sort of money but I am clueless as to what its worth

    Thanks, Ken

    Put it in Ebay with a start price of €1 and ship to whole world. Then it will be visible on the whole Ebay system. You will get a fair price (likely far more than the €320 you are talking about.

    Hello Aaditya1,

    Tell me what do you need specifically and I might be able to help. I also have the manual for the EMCO Fanuc series O-TC if you are interested.

    Regards,

    John.

    Re: EMCO PC Turn 50 Lathe

    Hi.

    I have to write here about EMCO PC TURN 50 lathe a have.

    I have write to emco emails and send web baser reguests. But there is no response - none.

    First i try to get this unit operational again, since it has lost pc and io-card somehow. As they seems to do every case

    Dealer has change since 1995. In Finland there is no one who has repair these machines available anymore. Current dealer sell only model 60 and price is something 10000eur+. It is huge amount for lathe that can be used only for aluminium. So our scholl want real lathe to replace, so i get this unit for free. Later on i found io-card from ebay, but it has no connection. I was again contact to emco - same result than before, no one reply.

    Emco was option when we buy new lathe, but not for real since there is no support when need. We get other manufacturer and now there is 50000eur lathe comming end of month

    However, this small emco is useless now. Any help to get pc cable schematics? I have lathe and fanuc board, floppydisc where program installs, w98 pc with one ISA slot - there is that io-card now. Emco software works ok but lathe does not go reference or do anything.

    Do you still have these problems? We just got one running here in Finland and perhaps can help you.

    Retiree/CNC Student...
    Just acquired an EMCO PC Turn 50 w/ GE Fanuk Series-O Board.
    I believe it has the ACC upgrade (don't really know what that means...).
    Got the ACC install instructions (Only literature that came with it.) and as near as I can tell the ACC has been installed.
    No Install/Operation manuals, No CDs, No Media, No idea where to start.
    Looking for any CDs, Manuals or Illustrations to get me going.
    Please provide guidance, I will be eternally greatful.

    It appears that I may have to dig out one of my old 486 computers... Is that correct?

    If the machine has ACC any PC will do. Contact Emco with your serial number and they will get you all the documentation and software you need.
