    Re: Greasing ways and ball screws

    Like most of Milltronics machines from that era, simple logic seemed to have escaped the designers back then. What were they thinking? My guess is they were not doing much of it. I hated my Partner...

  8. Re: 3.5 floppy drive or something else? After getting "Runtime error 158 at 0018:18F

    I Sent the controller to Milltronics and they could not find anything wrong with the controller or floppy emulator I was using. Frustrated to say the least. Something is corrupting the programs...

  11. Re: 3.5 floppy drive or something else? After getting "Runtime error 158 at 0018:18F

    Got one of those USB floppy emulators and still get the same error when loading into the machine or run one after loading. I can run programs directly from the thumb drive however. My guess is that...
  12. Re: 3.5 floppy drive or something else? After getting "Runtime error 158 at 0018:18F

    Tried a brand new drive with same results, crash and same error. I managed to get the XP computer talking to the Win 10 computer so I can share. But I can't get the CNC to talk to the XP computer. ...

  16. Re: 3.5 floppy drive or something else? After getting "Runtime error 158 at 0018:18F

    I should add that this is on an updated SBC Centurion 6 controller in a 1999 VM24 machine. The reason I'm using a floppy drive is that the latest Win 10 updates has totally shut down the Ethernet...
