LOCATING INFORMATION ON THE ST/5 & ST/6 LATHE

There are several ways to obtain information that will assist in determining the version of the ST/5 and ST/6 Lathe.

1. Cabinet color - Is the cabinet yellow or white (tan)? (Yellow was usually version 1 and white was version 2.)

2. Remove the top door on the rear of the cabinet. There should be a nameplate inside with the Lathe serial number. The nameplate will indicate SER. No. Location inside the cabinet may vary.

3. If the software is operational, run the RLATHE program. From the main screen, press the "ALT" button and the "S" key at the same time. A small dialog box will open. This will have both the software version number and the firmware version number. Provide both numbers.

4. On the printed circuit boards inside the back of the cabinet, there are two pieces of information that would be helpful. There is a board serial number and a label on the EPROM chip. The following photos show the location of this information based on which type of board was used in the lathe.

Version 1 Board

(Heat Sink on ST/6 only.)

Version 2 Board

(Two boards joined together.)

The above boards are representative. Actually boards and components may vary.
