Re: G92 threading cycle

You're right - the example seems to be suggesting G92 is modal - ie, all subsequent lines will carry out a G92 until another G code (eg G0/G1) is programmed I'll report it as either an error in the example, or a bug in the software. I'm having issues with this at the moment. Did this ever get fixed?

Re: Triac spindle with possible faulty bearings? Odd noise (

It does sound strange. Quite hard to tell from the video.

Have you checked the spindle speed with an external tachometer?

Have you tried greasing the bearings?

Re: NovaTurn or Turn 270 Turret to Purchase

Did you find a turret? I'm looking for a novaturn turret ATM. No, but still looking. I have a EMCO Turret that I am modifying. I hope to start the TRIAC mod this year and make a new one from scratch. Iron-Man I would be interested in working with you to make one if you're interested? I have a Triac...

Thanks for the photos. It was a Mirac I was thinking of. I am looking for something with a full enclosure.

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...

Re: Mach4 Conversation - Gecko G540 - Smoothstepper

Seems like this thread has lost some interest. Anyways I ran my first part last night with my conversion. Everything is done except my spindle reverse problem mentioned above. I have a few other little quirks I have to figure out, such as the toolpath not showing in Mach 4, but that is a different ...

Re: Power drawbar upgrade

I'm just coming back to this. Does anyone know what the pnumatic cylinder is used for the power drawbar?

I believe its a pnumatic / hydraulic unit made by Brauer.

Re: Power drawbar upgrade

I never managed to make much progress with my enquiry as Denford couldn't provide any prices or information regarding the modification.

This is still something I would like to do and I will probably try again once I have completed converting the machine to Mach.
