Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Apart from the alignment of the nuts, is there anything else I need to check when reassembling?

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Thank you both so much for your help. After all that, the electrician was about to follow the advice of bypassing the switch, went to one of the terminals suggested and the wire just fell out. It wasn't in there properly or tightened down. So, we aborted the plan, put the cable back tightened it dow...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

I have an electrician coming tomorrow. It looks like Version 5 if I'm correct? It's very difficult to tell as it was upgraded from it's original control card.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Here are pictures of the inside of my machine and the wiring. I have all the schematics, but they are from when the machine was manufactured and are dated 2000\2001, on the old 'DenStep' controller. Since then it has been upgraded to 'NextStep' so not sure how relevant, useful these diagrams are now...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

I have taken your advice, taken a step back and am working on the problems one by one: 1. The spindle. Replaced the brushes, and it works fine. 2. The guard switch saying 'guard open' constantly. I have opened the switch checked it thoroughly and it was clean. Re tightened all connections and checke...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

No, how do I do that? My dad just pointed out there is some dark black marks on the vents of the motor.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Now....things have got even stranger. Left the machine on for an hour or two, went back into the workshop and all of a sudden the guard lock is working????? Could it be the temperatures we are having right now? My workshop isn't heated.... So....started happily machining away, cut a few pieces I nee...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Could you explain in more detail how to bypass the switch? I know I need the diagram, which I think I have, but what would I need to do\be looking for?
Thank you so much for your prompt responses, and help.

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Had a quick look and took the lock off but it doesn't look too dirty at all. I keep thinking I might need to replace the lock but then when I press the 'emergency stop' button the lock activates, which makes me think the lock is fine, just something wrong with the signals being sent, as on VR millin...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Thank you so much for your quick response. The guard lock is really playing up today!!!! I have had a look on ebay and found a few 'Allen Bradley Guardmaster's' 2nd hand at a good price. I will have to check, but they look similar to mine. Are they easy to fit?? The problem with the offset seems to ...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Thank you so much for your kind reply. I'll try all these things and get back to you. I have done the power settings on the PC. That was my first port of call. It's just frustrating because it's such a nice machine in great condition, and is working really well. If I could iron this out, it would be...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Where would I get a USB cable with ferrite suppressors? My issue with a cable less than 1 metre is because I am going direct into the board inside the 'black box' with my USB cable, by the time the cable has travelled through the black box and out you would then be left with hardly any slack to fit ...

Sorry for the (very) late response to your post, I have been very busy recently and had a period of illness. I am based in North Herefordshire (about 40 miles from Birmingham\26 miles from Worcester). I have used the CNC a fair few times recently and only had the problem once. However, I have been g...

Re: Micro Router 2nd Hand

Hi Everyone, Quick update and another cry for help. I have changed the micro switch on the Z axis and it seems to have done the job, so thank you for your help with that previous issue. The ONLY problem I am now having with the machine is this 'device driver call failed' error and the connection dro...
