  1. Re: Stripped the column cap head screws on g0704

    You are vastly over estimating the amount of force the heads of those bolts will have once drilled off. They won't even release in an instantaneous manner, they will deform and loosen before fully...
  2. Re: Is there any actual upside to gear-free DC spindle motors?

    The difference is in limited duty and continuous duty. A DC motor or Servo will exhibit much higher limited duty starting torque, something like a 50% increase without the gear reduction. It will...
  3. Re: Stripped the column cap head screws on g0704

    I actually watched the video before I posted. A quick search turned it up.
  4. Re: Stripped the column cap head screws on g0704

    Those tramming blocks are legit. I need to make me some. Somebody should be selling those.
  5. Re: Stripped the column cap head screws on g0704

    No. The head would be captured by the drill bit, but it wont release with any appreciable force. You've never drilled the head off a bolt, obviously, nothing wrong with that though. All of the...
  6. Re: Stripped the column cap head screws on g0704

    The Imperial to metric method works. Assuming there is a slightly large Imperial size, just hammer it in and then turn.

    Or you can grind a slightly large allen to a hexagonal taper, hammer it in,...

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    I agree 100% with your conclusions regarding bloatware and privacy.

    That's why every Windows computer gets a fresh install of W10 enterprise before I do anything else. These days with web based...

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    Why would I care if I breach the license agreement? What are they going to do? Prosecute me over $300?

    If it's accessible natively from the start menu it's not a hack.

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    Hey, you don't have to convince me. I hate Windows too. Always have, ever since I started on 2.0. I run Mac and various Linux distros every single day. I do however also run many Windows machines as...
  11. Re: Lost drill hole size accuracy in drilling operations

    "got lucky"

    That's my assessment too. I think OP got above average results and is now getting the results we all would have expected.

    In a pinch I've milled/bored pockets with an end mill using...

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    You are incorrect.

    For Home users you can still turn off the update services using the instructions I provided. You can not turn them off via setting app/control panel, which is probably why you...

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    What's not in the retail and home versions? The update service? I don't see where you've mentioned it.
  14. Re: Help choosing the right motion controller for UCCNC + MX4660

    I am using the UC300eth, I also have a MX3600 and G540 in my controller. It works quite well.

    I am on W10. You can easily do all the things you want to do with that setup.

    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    It not hard to disable the Windows update service. This solves the issue. I've been on W10 Enterprise at 1709 (i think) for some time. PC uptime is probably many months at this point.

    Re: Can this be modeled is Solidworks?

    I didn't say I couldn't complete it in an hour. My point is that for good help you have to pay good money. Again, it can be sculpted in either, the problem is that you've hired people who don't have...

    Re: Can this be modeled is Solidworks?

    I charge $115 an hour. So $40, even $100, isn't much. That is especially true if you want me to attempt to recreate a dimensionless image with some rough outlines on it.

    Yes, that can be sculpted...

    Re: Horrible Surface Finish

    It could be a Mach3 motion setting. Maybe post a screen shot of those settings.
  19. Re: Spindle Regrinding Service for Benchtop Machines

    As i recall R8 doesn't need all that much tension. Seems like that might be a decent option.
  20. Re: Spindle Regrinding Service for Benchtop Machines

    Somebody needs to offer a G0704/PM25/[insert R8 mill here] spindle regrinding service. I would pay pretty good money to be able to use BT30 on my G0704. I'm not a huge fan of TTS so i've just...
  21. Re: thoughts on increasing rigidity of x2 mill? (besides coulmn brace)

    If the ways are spread on the carriage then a girdle as I described with solve your issues.

    My G0705 Z carriage was spread from what I believe was an issue from getting a gib strip stuck in the...
  22. Re: thoughts on increasing rigidity of x2 mill? (besides coulmn brace)

    If the Z axis carriage is opening at it’s ways during cut you are probably nearing the maximum capabilities of the machine. That said you could build a girdle of sorts where you run plates off the...

    Re: Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    That's interesting. I probably could have looked up a tutorial and tried to repair it. Sometimes it's just easier to drop it off and spend company cash.

    His was a fusion drive too. I wonder if...

    Re: Changes to Fusion 360 MAC installer

    I'm sure it's way biased towards Windows. I however much prefer OS X. That said, I can't justify buying a new Mac. I'm definitely not a fan of some of their hardware choices these days.

    Fusion has...
