    Re: Scary VM10U problems

    I guess another possibility is that there is slippage between the drive and the table. In the drive system, if there is some kind of mechanical connection between where the encoder is connected and...

    Re: Scary VM10U problems

    I would say that there is a mechanical disconnect between the encoder and the table, or the encoder and/or wiring is defective and there is noise on the line. I guess the problem could also be the...

    Re: MPG inside.

    If your MPG is rated at 30VDC then you should be OK. But I have never seen a 30VDC MPG. It could be that the power for the MPG is OK for 30VDC, but the output may only be 5VDC. You may need to use...

    Re: CNC thread deburr

    G32 is pretty much a ''whatever you want it to be'' threading cycle https://www.haascnc.com/service/codes-settings.type=gcode.machine=lathe.value=G32.pdf

    Re: would you buy this machine?

    That should be enough torque. I am using 11.2Nm (29Nm peak) servos on my lathe, and the carriage masses about 600Kg. Acceleration is very good with 400 IPM rapids. My lathe is a medium sized slant...

  9. Re: Using Fusion 360 with highly modified Emco Lathe

    As long as you tell Fusion where the front of the part is, then no problem, modified or not. Fusion assumes that X 0 is the spindle centerline. You have to tell Fusion which end of the part is the...

    Re: Interrupted turning in aluminum

    You won't have a problem. The inserts will live just fine. I make the 304 SS part below that gets a slot milled in it, then turned. The inserts are good for about 60 parts before I change them,...
  12. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    OK, a senior moment, I'm 70 so I can have those. :) I did those about 5 years ago. You made me get up from my chair and go out the the shop to look at a modified tool holder. You are correct, I did...
  13. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    I just used my 13 inch lathe and carbide tool bits, the $2.00 ones from Harbor Freight, 1/2 inch AR-8, but I suppose any decent carbide bit would do.

    I didn't take any material off of the bottom...
  14. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    I did buy some standard NMTB 30 holders, I just turned down the flange, and also narrowed it up a bit.

    Re: MultiCAM MG101 Gutted & Reborn

    Looks like you did well and your choice of hardware is very good. I have DMM servos on my lathe and they work very well. I don't think you need to worry about the high lead screws, my old router...

    Re: Is it cheeper to build

    You need to define ''high precision'' and CNC machine. That term seems to mean different things to different people. For some it might mean +/- 0.010 inch, for others it might mean +/- 0.0001 inch...

    Re: DEEP POCKET AND SMALL RADII

    A radiused tooth cutter of proper diameter would work, HSS would be fine. Going to have to be a pretty large diameter cutter, something like 6 or more inches, is your horizontal machine large enough...
  18. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    Based on what I can see of the panel, it doesn't look like the spindle is connected to the control panel at all. Maybe there is more than the pictures show.

    The QC spindle takes NMTB 30 tooling,...

    Re: DEEP POCKET AND SMALL RADII

    I'm not sure that the customer is in charge of determining the best way to machine the part. But in any case, it looks like the only difficult radius to machine is at the bottom of the 70° angle, a...

    Re: DEEP POCKET AND SMALL RADII

    Can you post a picture of the part? Maybe a screenshot of the CAD drawing. I am having a hard time trying to understand what the pocket looks like. 3 inches deep is too much DOC for a normal 3/16...
  21. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    If the control uses contactors to run the spindle, those can be used to switch the VFD control circuit and the wiring changes are minimal. You would only need to remove all of the 230V wiring from...

    Re: DEEP POCKET AND SMALL RADII

    Without a bit more detail it is hard to offer advice. If the inner radius is at the bottom corners of the pocket then a bull nose endmill with the proper radius would be the correct tool to finish...
  23. Re: Need help brainstorming a solution for this mill turn spindle

    Looks like you did a great job. Quite a project. Would love to see a wider view of the whole machine.
  24. Re: Have Tree 310 w/ 3 phase power. Best solution to hook to my shops Single Phase 24

    If the control system will run on 120V then it would make the most sense to run it from a wall plug, and power the spindle with a 3HP VFD rated for single phase input. This is the way I am running...
