    Re: LCD Monitor

    It was an open box deal. I offered $40.00 and they accepted. But, they did charge me $23 shipping plus tax :(

    Re: Fadal VFD Choice ??????

    Thanks for the replies :) I kind of figured that Fadal had some proprietary thing going on there. If I go the new drive route, I'll probably go with the Glentek.

  13. Re: Pain in finding zero position, Fadal 6030

    I noticed the AC servo hunting for the CS markings. When the CS finally was found (without alarming), it would be at a different location from my marked position. I tried changing the difference in...
  14. Re: Pain in finding zero position, Fadal 6030

    I guess the biggest issue for not replacing the encoder, was lack of information on how to do it. I'm just a lowly maintenance man who relies on youtube and these forums for info :D
  15. Re: Pain in finding zero position, Fadal 6030

    Hello, I had the same issue on my 3016. It would fault at random times locating the CS position. My Fadal has AC servos and the problem was the encoder. Thus being an AC servo, I couldn't just swap...

    Re: ATC Retention Clips...

    Thank You !!!! I only have three to replace, right now. But, I think I'll replace all of them next year and I'll use your suggested method of removing the turret wheel. Again, thank you :)
