[I've got one I've been retrofitting one with a modern control system. Mine
is actually a Leadwell-Ramco "Rammill", but the Centurion IV control is the
same. Do you have a manual for it? It was a pretty good controller in its
day (early '80s), but unfortunately there is no way to get programs into it,
short of typing them into the balky old keyboard on the console. If yours
has a paper tape reader, you might have better luck, since you can use a BTR
with those, and "drip-feed" code in that way. Otherwise, it will only run
from its (tiny) memory. Are you going to retrofit it, or try to run it as
is? If you're keeping it as is, let me know, since I've scrapped out the old
control, etc. and I've got some very hard-to-get spare parts I'm not too
[See "My current retrofit project" for Rammill pictures, etc.]
