    Tooling the Conquest

    I have two drill holders that came with the Conquest.
    They have 1.125" bores and accept Hardinge collet holders.

    Anyone know where I can find a 1.125" to 1" sleeve so I can use 1" straight shank...

    Conquest 42, making progress

    OK, I found the reset for the hydraulic pump contactor.
    Now everything powers up without alarms.

    Now I'm into the confusing ZERO RETURN (HOME) sequence.

    re: spindle

    Hi bclark,
    Thanks for the info!
    It does not have a C axis readout, just x and z.
    I will play with the indexer commands.

    More info on this:
    I just figured out there are little LEDs on the relay board that show which M code relays are active. In fact I AM getting ON/OFF indications from the LEDs for M60/61. So I must...

    Trying to use "user M functions"

    There is probably a simple answer to this, but it is eluding me :(
    I have installed the proper 120VAC relays on the 1100-1D board to use the USER M functions (M60-69). I am trying to get a response...

    figured it out

    My machine has metric ballscrews and the inch ballscrew parameter was set.

    Easy problems are better than the alternative!

    Maybe a better question would be - do all 2 axis turning centers have an encoder on the spindle for sync to Z and threading? Does having a C axis imply that the spindle rotation is under servo...

    Learning about CNC lathes

    Does a CNC lathe require a C axis to do threading or can a basic 2 axis machine somehow sync the Z to the spindle to do threading?
    Thanks,
