Re: Feed rates?

Yes that's what we use.

If you want you could lower the depth of cut & increase the federate.

Re: X Jamming

It may just need lubricating with Silicone spray.

Otherwise the X axis nuts may need to be removed & cleaned out.

Re: Feed override stuck at 5%

We link the commons on the input plug. It may be worth checking them against the electrical drawing.

You can check the inputs using EasyUpgrader. Open EasyUpgrader then connect. Then right click on the top banner & go to Card Test. The password is tristar. Then connect. you should see both values between 0 & 50 when you move the pots. Also check the commons are connected on the plug where the input...

Re: Feed override stuck at 5%

I presume you have a Denstep top card with a red seven segment LED on the control card & not a NextStep card?

It may be worth checking the connections on both pots as the 0 volts & +5 volts DC do double up from one to the other.

Re: machine plans

There is a charge for both of them.

If you can create a DXF file VRMilling will open it & create a machine plan. There is a tutorial in VRMilling to guide you through.

Re: Laser cutter smoking post clean

What model of Versalaser do you have & what extraction unit is fitted? It may be worth checking the air flow where it comes out of the extraction unit either on the back if it's a Bofa unit (Door on side) or underneath if it's a ULS unit 2 doors in front). I have seen an issue before on the ULS extr...

Re: Old Machines, Old Software, Dongles and Floppy Disks, Help!

It may be worth checking that VRMilling version 2 is only installed once.

Try searching for the Windmill.ini file to check.

If you want I can check your licence at Denfords if you sned it accross.

Re: Microrouter spindle controller

The earlier Micorouters were fitted with Sprint 1200 spindle drives which we then changed around 2002 to a KB Electronics KBLC 240DS Drive.


Both units are DC drives.

The Porter Cable we fitted would work with either an AC or DC supply.

Re: "downgrading" from nextstep to denstep

The pots on the front are override pots.

The range on the spindle pot is between 50% & 120%. Therefore if you request a speed of 2000rpm & the override is at 50% the actual speed will be 1000rpm. It does not go below 50% so you can't stop it if you are running in in auto.
