    Oh boy.
    The Team Mate has been out for 30 years.

    If you replaced a machine control board, you may have affected parameters and control software.

    Wow, that's impressively ancient. Might be time for a control upgrade.

    Generally the parameters are on a tape that goes in just after the executive tape. Unless he's got core or bubble memory, he had to reload the whole thing after a shutdown.

    I'm kind of thinking this is a joke, because anyone running something from 1980 will have a better idea of what's going on .... was the TeamMate an early Fanuc ? Seems to me it was something like that, Pratt did not make their own controls.

    I think you must have added a zero to the price of the control. $200K for a control?

    I ran one of these. It was pretty good in the 80s. It was a proprietary control with it's own hardware/software. There "may" be an executive tape, but after 40 years I wouldn't rely on it. Most of the guys who really knew this thing, like Wayne Gordon, are long retired.

    Then he can kiss it off, because without an exec it's just a big lump of scrap ...

    It would be better than a tinkertoy if he wanted to do a Linux CNC project. And had about ten years to make it run
