    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    I'm not a non-technical person. I have a self designed and built 3-axis pipe profiler using the ESS. Regardless of the demo mode debacle I was still informed that I would need to put the spindle into...

    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    Problem being that I didn't know it was in demo mode. I had to go through the process of getting a new working PC for Mach3 when the original PC that came with the machine crapped out (blown caps on...

    Holy crap that was an adventure but I finally got everything working and I don't even have to use the manual workaround that JT suggested. I did some more digging and found a plugin called turn...

    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    Played around with the machine some more and made an interesting discovery. So when I go to use the canned threading cycle the machine gets setup, makes a very small move like it's going to start...

    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    Do you use a canned threading cycle or do you have multiple lines of code? I tried to use it and every time it goes to start the threading cycle it sits there waiting once it gets to the canned cycle...

    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    What makes you think it's a Mach3 issue? I am just curious as I am not sure what is the problem, Mach3 or the machine interface. A Mach3 canned threading cycle seems pretty straight forward and is a...

    So no matter what I set the "Max Speed" to under my spindle setup the Hz in the VFD display panel does not correspond.

    I had it set to 75 under P0-007 and P0-024. I set the "Max Speed" to 1200 and...

    I understand how the math works. What I don't understand is why when I have the max speed set to 1200 in Mach3 and I set the S-word to 400 (1/3 of 1200) I don't get 25hz on the motor I get 32hz. I do...

    So I can just measure the OD of the pulleys and not the ID where the belt actually sits? The depth will be the same on both pulleys?

    I don't think I can do that. For instance. Let's say the OD of...

    After getting in contact with Shopmaster I figured out it was either 2 settings, that in the manual are checked, and in the updated pages unchecked. Or it was the lack of the wire from the -12v PSU...
