Not anymore.  Banner on the page says he is out of the business due to personal issues.


I believe I read somewhere that bad health forced him to give it up.

I just found out that John Gerling repairs controller boards for mini-lathes and mini-mills (Harbor Freight, Grizzly, Cummins, Homier, Micro-Mark, Real Bull, X1/X2/X3, etc).

John is a retired electrical engineer with a mini-mill and and lathe.  When the controller for his mill failed he learned how to fix it and that led to a business repairing them.

Now that "Uncle Rabid" has passed away, John is the only one I know of who is repairing these controllers.
