I have converted a Holbrook Minor lathe to CNC. (as a partner to my CNC-converted Harrision milling machine).
I attempted to do the conversion as I imagined Holbrook themselves might have done it, and also in such a way that the lathe could be returned to manual operation if anyone wanted to (But that is no longer likely, as I have given away all the removed parts). It became largely an exercise in pattern-making.
I documented the process in this series of blog posts.

What a beautiful lathe, Andy
... and a CNCconversion that apparently does it justice.
