    Re: Moving a DM4400 mill

    Hi Timothy,
    I've managed to get a picture of the weight, etc, so I'm in good shape there. I am curious about the hook if you have one, although it has become far less of an issue now that I...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    The following two drawings are *very* rough representations of a Dyna DM4400M (Mitsubishi control) with and without the enclosure. They are for reference only as a means of figuring out space within...

    Re: DM4400 Pull Studs

    It uses a custom knob. I need to confirm a dimension, but I believe the attached drawing is correct (but note the DM4400 in the lower right, so it almost certainly is). However, that is probably...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Sure.... I'll send you a PM with my email address. I've moved entirely into software now in my professional life, but I still do a little EE stuff for fun. Its funny though. Engineering is like any...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    You read my mind. The Eye shouldn't be too hard to put in with a lock nut if I've got the head down (so weight up). I'll see the machine later this week for a run through and I'll look then. I hope...

    Re: SMW Indexer program. HELP!!!!

    Hi.
    I saw this on practical machinist too.... I know it is an old thread, but I have a SMW Indexer that I recently acquired and I don't have a manual for it. I've love to get a copy. The...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Great. Thank you for confirming the size. The weight seems to be fairly snug in the cavity, with little more than a half inch or so around the edges. It almost seems like wedging this during...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Can you identify this photo. It was sent to me but I can't quite make it out. That seems to be the table below the weights, which would make the weights above the spindle. That doesn't make sense...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Fantastic! This is making a lot more sense to me now. I have to laugh though. I have no idea how you reached down into the column and removed that eye. It looks like the weight is 3 feet down or...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Yeah, I hadn't considered the possibility of a set of holes in the column casting sides through which one could insert a rod that would (also) go through an I-bolt in the weight. That would be a...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Hi Dan,
    Yep.... You are first in line if I decide to not use it. I must say, however, that I'm going to really really try to store it if I can't fit the machine into my garage with the enclosure. ...

    Moving a DM4400 mill

    Hi,
    Looking through the manual, I noticed that when these machines were shipped originally, the heads were blocked and a hook was installed on the top of the column to suspend the weight and...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    I looked at the machine in person over the weekend and grabbed the manuals. First, it is always hard to get a feel for the size of something when it is in a wide open space. However, next to 13,000...
  14. Re: Dyna Myte 4400M with Meldas M3 Control. I think the battery is dead

    LOL... yeah, the control does look "well used", indeed. By the same token, it seems like all of the Dyna pictures out there, save a few, all have broken key caps. I'm not sure why. Maybe it is...
  15. Re: Another Hurco KMB-1 converstion (this time in Sunnyvale, CA)

    I'm selling this machine, if someone is interested. Never quite finished it, but it is very very very close. I've integrated a Vista P4 pendant with hard wired estop, etc. It is all very sweet. ...

    Re: Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    The gentleman who made the statement is well versed in servicing Dyna machines and I'm sure he would move the head all the way down. Therefore, I assume he was talking about the Z axis servo motor;...
  17. Hurco KMB1 (purpose built CNC head, not BPort clone), LinuxCNC conversion

    I have a Hurco KMB1 CNC knee mill that I've been converting to LinuxCNC. You can actually find pictures of the machine in its original Hurco configuration on this site. I'll post new pictures, but...

    Awesome, Dan! I'm going to pick through your information more carefully, but I think you've pretty much nailed most of what I was looking for (one caveat which I'll get to in a bit). Thank you so...

    Hi Dan,
    First and foremost, thank you for the response. I definitely appreciate it!

    Yeah, the 4400 and 4400M are basically the same footprint. The pendant size may be a little different but I...

    Re: Mitsubishi Meldas M3 Control?

    Hi Caprirs,
    I am at the later stages of acquiring a (working) Dyna M3 based DM4400M. You seem to have a great deal of knowledge about this machine and control, so I'm hoping you can answer a...
  21. Re: Dyna Myte 4400M with Meldas M3 Control. I think the battery is dead

    PNaedele,
    I'd call quickly... Dyna itself is kind of kaput, I believe. They have no presence in San Jose at all, and I don't think they have any manufacturing elsewhere either. Although their...

    Urgent: Dyna DM4400 / DM4000 measurements

    Hi,
    I appear to have secured a Dyna DM4400M. Yay...super happy! However, it is a bit of a funny thing. The machine isn't very convenient for me to measure to ascertain the dimensions. It...

    Wanted: DM4400 or DM440M manuals

    Hi,
    I'm looking for manuals for the DM4400M, ideally, but I'd take DM4400 if that is all that are available. It would be great if someone knew of a place where I could just download the PDF of the...
  25. Re: Another Hurco KMB-1 converstion (this time in Sunnyvale, CA)

    Will do, although I want to be sure that more important milestones are also published to the thread. I'm a firm believer in getting information out there for the benefit of all. Of course, it is...
