Re: Cutting Accuracy

What material are you cutting?
Have you measured the width of a slot made with your cutter? Is the cutter running true?

Re: Feed speeds displayed incorrectly.

Try turning turbo mode off as the program reads ahead as far as the next modal change. The feed displayed will be the feed where's the program has read ahead to.

If you turn turbo off the machine will display the feed of the actual currently exicuted line.

Re: coolant options

Airmist does not require any modification to the machine. If set correctly there is hardly any residue left and it will evaporate away.

Re: Novaturn without ATC - VR Turning settings

If you browse the VR Turning CD there is a folder called manuals. There is a setup manual for VR Turning on the CD. You need to set the work offsets first with tool 1 then setup the other tools in the tool offset menu.

Re: Router 2600 Pro - Machine Connection Problem

Can you remove the cover from the electrical panel. Then check there is power to the control card. There is a 7 segment display on the control card. Is it lit and what does it display?

All the machines were supplied with DOS software before 2000 and a change over to the current VR Turning and VR Milling software in late 2000. To identify what software will run on your controller you...

Re: Earth Clamp Mod

Yes add an earth wire from the aluminum tube that passes through the side window and link it to the frame of the cabinet. What shop Vac do you have? If it has a metal housing make sure the top and bottom are also linked.

Have you installed the USB driver from the installation menu? When you select the real machine does it go through the process of searching for the machine and downloading data or do you get the message as you soon as you try to connect?

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

Until the axis is homed you cannot select jog mode. Use the secret home and then jog all the Axes away from home. Then select home mode again. Look at the control panel position display window and click the y datum switch a few times and look for the green letter Y to appear. This proves the switch ...
