    Re: CNC Quilter up and running

    Sorry I missed your question. I was lucky and the machine came with a stitch regulator so that made it easy to solve your issue. The device basically controls the speed of the sewing machine motor...

  3. Re: Robodrill 7.5hp spindle. Single Phase Power input No Rotary Phase convetor doable

    I went with a 10hp Phase Perfect. Costly $3500. But worth it. Only draws 4 amps at machine idle. Hangs on the wall. Quite. Love it. Wife is happy. Robodrill is happy.

    Re: Terrible news... I think

    Sounds like the CRT is failing. I would suggest ordering in a PCMCIA card. Well worth the money.
    You top status lights say that the CPU is not running yet. You could have a bad memory card. You...

    Re: Terrible news... I think

    Did you replace the battery with the machine on? You have to do that. Did you try and go back to the old battery? Maybe wrong voltage causing issue.

    Re: Emco VMC 100 Mach 3 Retrofit started

    That's kinda what I thought. Since it say moves 1/4" every rev it would never know where exactly it is. It could take 20 revs to get to home or take 1. I'll just put new switches on there or relocate...
