Lets start from the beginning, do you know what type of motors the machines have (servo, stepper)?  What type of drives for the motors?  Pictures will make this faster.

I assume you mean out,  AC drives have three wires to the motor, DC brushless also have three wires.  That drive has a hall sesor input so it might be a brushless dc drive.

In the PDF i says the lathe uses stepper motors so that means that Mach will run it.

I haven't tried these drives but should work nice with your motors if they are setup for bipolar:

How many wires do you have from stepper the motor?

Thats not good if you can easily spin the screw by hand, that means the motors don't have much power. 

You didn't pay $7K for the machine did you?

Contact the guy on this thread (pminmo, phil)

He builds a lot of stepper drives and will be able to give you better directions.

It is not possible for a stepper motor not to locked when power is applied to the drive, unless there is a enable input on the drive and when you plug in the pport cable is disables the drive.
But you say they jog fine so I guess there is no problem there.

Put up some pictures of the motor controllers to get a better idea of the setup.

Do you have the wires from the X drive to the stepper connected properly?

I think the MDI tab is what you need.  Just type in G00 x23 Y12 Z2 and enter, then Mach will move at rapid speed to that location.  If you want to go slower start with G01.

I never used a laptop with Mach3 and from what I read it's better to stay with desktop pc's.  What type of breakout board does it have (the board that pPort cable connects to)?  Do you have a desktop pc to test run the mill with?

If you want to know all you ever wanted to know about cam shafts, contact or read some of the posts by (NC cams) on CNCzone.com

That piece of electronics will cost over $10,000+ for us hobby guys a encoder on the back of the motor does just fine:)
