Re: 1008 Spindle Drive Fault and 1017 Spindle Drive Overheat

Have you checked the Thermal sensor on the big Balast Resistor ? Fanuc does a full "sweep" of everything to make sure all is OK at startup, as you rightly say a peripheral like slideway oil level will trigger the 1008 alarm so as you also have an overheat alarm I would check that sensor, that great ...

Re: 4th axis for mill

My advice for FWIW is to buy a reasonablby priced 4th axis direct drive or belt drive type, the worm and wheel type wear very quickly unless you pay big money for a high quality one. I have a Sherline one on a Triac and it really isn`t very good, when I get the chance/time to get back into my worksh...

Re: Triac machine advice

A couple of points you raise, on the matter of Servo versus Stepper there is absolutely no doubt that Servos are way better, two reasons, one they hold their rated torque across their rpm range whereas the Steppers do not, two, Servo systems will in all probability have a full closed loop system bac...

Hi Bob

Are you still interested in the cards? I sent you a PM with phone number last Sunday, did you not get it?

Re: Triac Spares, Stepper Drives, Sprint 1200 Drive (eBay)

For the 3 cards I reckon £60 is a fair price, if you want the rack with the main card as well an extra £10, all plus postage or if you are close enough you can collect, I am in Lancashire.

Re: Triac Spares, Stepper Drives, Sprint 1200 Drive (eBay)

Hi Bob I have a rack with 3 cards in it that I took out of a working machine to replace it with modern control and modern stepper drives. All three boards worked at the time of removal but I have no way to test them now, not sure on the numbers but I will check the next time I am down at my workshop...

Re: Triac Spares, Stepper Drives, Sprint 1200 Drive (eBay)

What type of stepper drives are you after?
The older Black type or the ones that plug into a rack ?? I have some rack type boards if you are interested.

Re: Easimill 3 conversion preferences

FYI USB is well outdated, the best system is via Ethernet connection, virtually bullet proof regarding interference (Electrical "noise" from compressors and the like) Also the USB only runs on 5 Volts and you can only run shortish cables (2~3 Metres) max is usually best, Ethernet will run fine acros...

Re: new jaws

Could possibly be a Bison/Toolmex chuck, if you measure one of your jaws up, length, width, slot and screw pitch and go to the Rotagrip site there is a fair chance you will find the right jaws for your chuck, I got all my stuff from them when I had my 2 Cyclones a few years ago.

Re: Yep, another machine can't connect

This may or may not be the problem and likely not someting you want to hear but in my experience with the older technology removing the label on an EPROM results in the EPROM being completely erased, they aren`t supposed to get light in the little window that is normally covered by the Label as far ...

Hi, it isn`t very big, quite a compact unit, it is a "front" type ATC.

I will go down the Unit tomorrow and get some measurements for you.

Re: Denford Cyclone -turret positioning error

Regarding the Spindle 1008 error message that will quite possibly be a "peripheral" that is causing that, Fanuc does a sequential test of everything on the machine at start up and will show an error for the NEXT item on it`s list because it has found an issue and hasn`t been able to test the next it...

Re: Chess Pieces - Pawn

Hmmm, sounds a little like the possibility of some confusion here regarding the use of "Radius" and "Diameter" modes, also the feeds seem to be quite OK, F100mm/minute is quite slow, the F1000 moves should be rapids between cuts ? ? I had an Orac that I sold last year and that was on all the origina...

Dubstar, So if you take your OHM meter across the 0V and 0-10V on the sprint card it smooths out? That's really interesting and makes me believe it would be noise also?
