Any EMI-MEC turret lathe experience?
A customer wants me to do some troubleshooting on the controls of an EMI-MEC Auto Sprint Series E turret lathe. It is pin-programmed relay logic driving pneumatic controls. Seems that it was running along one day and just stopped at the beginning of a new cycle.
I was able to do some preliminary power supply voltage checks that all show normal before I ran out of time. I have copies of the prints, but haven't started puzzling my way through yet. Anyone with any experience?
These things were made in the UK.

Theory & Practice-
Theory is when you know something but it doesn't work.
Practice is when something works but you don't know why.
It it dangerous to combine Theory & Practice;
nothing works and you don't know why.
