Re Manual operation.
Converting to manual by fitting hand wheels to a CNC 5 is not as straight forward as it sounds.
The problem is that the lathe has ball screws fitted. These minimise backlash, which is fine, particularly but are very low friction devices, so will not stay put, unlike a conventional feed screw or lead screw, which has enough friction that it will stay where it is put.
Using it as you are is actually the best option manually!
