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FYI USB is well outdated, the best system is via Ethernet connection, virtually bullet proof regarding interference (Electrical "noise" from compressors and the like) Also the USB only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 ...

Re: For Sale - Lathe ATC suit Orac

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...

Re: Mach4 Conversation - Gecko G540 - Smoothstepper

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? I did have something interesting happen the other day related to this topic. As you know I upgraded my homing sensors and everythi...
