    I was able to get a copy of the software,1.27 I think. The control comes up now but when I press the green button that controls the main contactor it only closes it while I'm holding it down. When I...
  2. Re: MagnaTurn 1218 Manuals & Software?

    I powered it up today & it turns out the hard drive is missing! Does anyone have a copy of the control software or a copy of the hard drive I could get from you?

    Thanks!

  3. Re: South Bend Magnaturn 1218 software installer

    Did either of you ever find the software? I just powered up a 1218 & the hard drive is missing! I could really use a copy of the control software, a copy of the hard drive if possible.

    Thanks!

  11. Re: MSC Surface Grinder Questions/Tips

    Re: VM17 Spindle speed limited

    Sounds to me like the VFD isn't set right. I just had a similar problem with my Partner 1. The VFD had been replaced before I got it and they must not have set the max frequency, it was still at 60hz...

    Re: Strange code issue!

    OK, I figured it out. The tool change must clear the H value so it thought the tool was at the spindle not the actual length! Remove the M06 T?? and it works fine.

    Re: BobCAD V28 Centurion 5 post

    Here's another update. I fixed it so it will add line numbers just at the start of an operation. Also moved the M01 to after the tool change so that the tool gets out of the way, this way you can...
  25. Re: Tool Setter M Codes! For Centurion 5, and probably 6 and 7.

  29. Tool Setter M Codes! For Centurion 5, and probably 6 and 7.

    Ever since I got my Partner 1D with a Centurion 5 controller I've hated the way you have to set tools and part Z zero, it never made sense and if the top of your part gets removed you're screwed if...
