Is this a new version of the Legacy Mach screen? My version does not have the automatic pop ups. Not that I need them, but I would like to have the most current version. There are usually some other modifications that sneak in when there is an update. Is this Legacy screen version downloadable?

Excellent video. This is exactly the kind of stuff you need to do for beginners like I was a year ago.
Another one that shows how to setup and check the horizontal axis center would be good also.
Then show how to mount a part and cut it on the horizontal axis using the arbor mount that comes with the machine and using a chuck. You could also show a tip on how to mount a live center on the butt end of the horizontal mount to replace the bull nose that is standard.
More ideas for beginner videos would be to show how to adjust the x, y, and z axis travel accuracy fro each different machine and how to square up the x and y axis to be perpendicular to each other. These are all things I have had to learn and do to get the machine running accurately. You could also create test cut files, and a video explaining how to use them, so that when the machine arrives the new owner could test the machine to see what might need adjusting. If I had these types of instructions when I got my machine, it would have relieved quite a bit of frustration that I encountered when I first started using my machine.
