Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

You need to download the correct diagrams so you can trace your fault through. Look in the section for you machine.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

The only suggestion on the switch is to go through the wiring diagram. Follow it back to the control board/s work out if the switch should be be open or closed when the door is shut and you want to use the machine. Once you know that and know where on the control board then remove the wires from the...

Re: Setting up rotating axis

I've not used 4th axis but in VR milling I have seen a tick box for IV axis and various settings. You would need to go into the machine settings menu.

Re: NovaTurn not responding to software

I have the tail stock, you will be pushed to get 150 between centres, I suppose it would depend on what centre you use on the tail stock. With it fitted you are very restricted on boring too due to the size of the ATC.

You don't need the battery by the way. Just remove and clean the board up.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

You need to stop. Step back and focus on one thing at a time. The only way you are going to get to the bottom of this is by taking a logical approach. If you are reliant on this for work then you need to set aside some decent down time to work through it. You have the Kress motor rather than the por...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Cutter looks fine, as long as you have at least one cutting surface that goes to the centre axis. I can't help anymore on the door lock/switch as I haven't had to strip one yet, so you are on your own with that. Although if you slide your machine so the front is just off the bench you should be able...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

you can electrically bypass the switch. You need to look at the wiring diagram and then either do it at the switch or where the wires go to the board. Just remember though If you do that whenever you go to move the machine with the door open it will move at the normal pace and NOT the slowed pace it...

Re: Cutting Accuracy

Martin/Steve as always know there stuff (no surprise :D ) Cleaning is important on these machines especially as a lot of the time in schools etc they are used with model foam, MDF and balsa, it get right in your nuts worse than a day at the beach! I'm not 100% on the compact but when I was machining...

Re: All the gear no idea

the numbers are actually letters. There is a list somewhere on the forum to 'decode' what it is saying, Took me ages to understand the 'numbers' it was flashing up at me once was E 5 t 0 P, or E Stop, meaning the emergence stop was pressed! Not sure is this is valid on the later boards but I think i...

Re: Compact 1000 pro E-stop and off on switch

If i remember correctly the limit switch links back to the control board directly, you just need to use a meter and check the continuity on each wire, You could 'prove' if the issue is the wire/switch by directly wiring a switch to the control board and manually operating it. II can't remember what ...

Re: Installing Denford Viceroy on wooden bearers

I only have a Boxford Tud manual lathe. I found this as a school/student machine too low for me at 6' 3". I made some shuttering the size of each end of the lathe, drilled the concrete floor within the shuttering, fitted rawl plugs and used 150mm screws at 4" centres so I could level them (my floor ...

Re: VR Milling v5.69 released 23rd February 2020

HI, The guys at Denford do this as a sort of hobby so don't always come on, so the support is sort of unofficial and often by those of us who use the machines either at work or home. A couple of things, what happens if you open VR5: 1 DON'T connect to the machine and try file open. 2. DO connect to ...

Re: ATC (auto tool change) Gearbox info

Thanks Martin,
I thought that must have been the case, do you have the specs on the original pawl size when you are back in. Not that I'm going to be doing anything with it still for a while just if they are on here it would be great when I come to it.

Re: Microrouter Blown F3 Fuse/Emergency Stop Switch

That's interesting, I've not looked at one with the Z brake how is it activated/deactivated. is it only used when the machine is not cutting or is there G code to control it?
