    Re: Milling Cast Iron

    I got my first CNC when I was 58, and second when 64.
    There is hope for you yet? or buy some ballscrews and retrofit your Bridgeport. Nothing a scrape of the ways and gibs won't fix.

    Re: Milling Cast Iron

    And that was almost 8 years ago. Did they figure it out, or die after retirement?

    Re: blown spindel controller MBL-1100-300H

    Probably viper22a 8 pin switch mode controller.
    Almost any part of control wiring touching chassis can kill this device.
    Other parts mostly regulators, 5v, 6v? 12v. Maybe even 3.3v. Probably ok,...

    Re: Engraving fonts

    Using futura you need a tool with a flat end as wide as at least half of the stroke width so it looks nice.
    Simplex middle line has two stokes close together.

    Re: SX3 Circuits. - ALL Versions - Post here.

    A transformer with between 9v and 13v open circuit will work OK.
    I have a 11.5v transformer, just a bit physically larger than on the PCB, that you can wire in with flexible leads.
    I also have a...

    Re: My pneumatic counterbalance

    It is pretty much all here.
    You need to read the thread from the start.
    Air goes into one side of the cylinder only, at some fixed pressure.
    If the volume of the tank is large in comparison to the...

    Re: Syil X4 with blown spindle controller

    If it looks exactly like your original, you could plug it in and see if the smoke gets out.
    If the capacitors are dead, you will soon know.
    It might even work, with a bit of luck.
    The thing that...

    Re: Jerky motion in all axes...

    I have seen identical problem, (not on an X4. It was a custom machine), that was traced to a driver (leadshine) that was faulting,
    and reflecting spikes back through the system.
    All the while,...

    Re: Frying Components

    Have a dig in the cabinet and find where the transformer wires go.
    Might be a fuse hidden. Or is the primary open circuit. Disconnect one end before trying to measure transformer resistance.

    Re: Frying Components

    Hi Mike (and Donna)

    I will measure relay and calculate value of parts for diode pump circuit.
    A bit busy, so hit me in a week if I don't give an answer. I must emulate circuit to get values....

    OK. Here is a schematic for it.
    Checked fuse with multimeter.
    Also if estop not supplying main relay the transformer powering the breakout board might have no power.

    Re: Frying Components

    Hi Mike.

    Spindle runs. That is good. Can vary the speed ok? Load it up. All good?

    The clunk is the stepper drivers powering up. That is normal and good.
    No green led means no 5v power from...

    Re: Frying Components

    Sorry about delay. I have been CNC busy, offline.

    The 10K resistors work the 100v relay from 240v!
    If relay JK1 does not come on, then nothing works. It is controlled from e-stop circuit. JK1...

    Re: Syil X4+ Gas Strut

    Make sure the new strut is mounted skinny shaft downwards, so that the seals remain covered in oil.
    Original factory install was wrong way up.
    You can get a longer strut to increase the travel of...

    Re: NEED HELP! PANASONIC AC SERVO MOTOR

    Rather late reply, but might help someone.

    Probably dirt/dust on encoder disk.
    Carefully try a little air across the encoder disk. No chemicals or brushes!!

    Re: Rough / Jagged Diagonal Edges

    Most often, these issues are mechanical. Just not obvious at first. Breaking problem into smaller part and testing each axis will help you.

    Re: Rough / Jagged Diagonal Edges

    I suspect steps per distance are too coarse. Are you using micro-stepping? what are steps per mm -- I know. give it in inches if you need to.
