    Re: Bent carousel plate???

    Bent shaft that holds the platter?
    Run an indicator on the plate and see how far it’s out. Also take a straight edge on the bottom and check the flatness. If it has a lot of run out but checks out...

    Re: Fadal 3016 won't brake spindle to stop

    Re: Vise size for a Fadal 3016

    No problem glad I helped. I personally would grab the 20” vises due to the extra capacity but I would be using it on Fadal 4020 or 5020as so the 20” works out perfect. I do think the 20” orange will...

    Re: Vise size for a Fadal 3016

    Sorry about the confusion the table had a Kurt hdl4 which is a 4” wide vise thereby throwing all proportions out.
    I do not own a Kurt dx6 I just know it’s similar to the parlec in size.
    The parlec...

    Re: Fadal Utilities - Finding center

    Use the midpoint utility and go in and delete all the values except the x value before you calculate and then insert. Or just for safety I always do the dimension I want with midpoint first then go...
  13. Re: Indicator Resolution for Backlash Measurement

    Depends how accurate you want to be. Personally I have used both you can read between the lines on a .0005” indicator.

    In my experience all my backlash numbers are under .0006” so a tenths...

    Re: Tool changer Slot assignment

    That’s a good question I’d like to know the answer to as well. I leave a slot open for my 3d taster at all times that’s another tool I could have in the machine.
  19. Re: Troubleshooting New Glentek inverter issues.

    Is the voltage going into the drive correct? 230-240v no higher? Also seem like low ohms on the resistor? But may be correct I dont remember. Is there a fuse in the drive for the regen circuit? Also...

    Re: Help with Fixture Offsets

    The way I do it with my Fadal in format 2 is to set all tools based off the table.
