    Re: hello all

    Not a lot of information about your machine.

    Provide some more details such as:

    1. The control system - is it a DSP or other type (UCCNC or some other) - maker?
    2. Any manuals provided?

    Re: NCStudio OR Controller

    Be careful with that. Older network interfaces with RJ45 connectors may not auto-detect a cross-over cable properly. Cheaper cables may not have enough wires or be incorrectly wired. If the...

    There are some very efficient high speed EoP (EthernetOverPower) adapters these days. Plug one into a power point in the house and the other in a power point in the workshop. This gives you an...

    Similar to @coherents suggestions. The reason for high-side up in my original comment. That leaves the lowest points around the edges but outside the cutting area. Essentially the whole top...

    5000 nameplates, that's quite a lot. So is 10000 screws in and out :-(

    The OP was asking about an issue with theft of a PC controlling the machine. The suggestion of a DSP was based on that and the RichAuto control system is very compact. The BoB lives in the...

    Feeds and speeds, materials and choice of bits.

    Then there's RPM on the bit, how many cutting edges and the material the bit is made out of. The cheaper bits (often steel body with carbide...

    Re: Rich Auto controller not loading

    The PC architecture has nothing to do with transferring files between it and the DSP so don't worry about that part.

    AFAIK, the REFORMAT option wipes the internal configuration of the DSP (machine...

    Re: Need to flatten 5/8" thick aluminum plate

    Mount it on the table, high side up and surface it on the machine a little bit at a time?
  12. Re: Need Vacuum/ spoil board suggestions for small thin alum. Labels!

    Holding tabs would be the first idea. A bit of work to clean them up but better than a trashed part.

    Another thought, They might have a bad image (if so the one I downloaded might be bad too). If that's the case definitely advise them of what you are seeing.

    OK,

    1. Check your power supplies have correct voltages

    Re: Rich Auto controller not loading

    With the CNC machine turned off, connect the USB cable between PC and A15. If it does not power on, try a different USB port on the PC. Alternately, try using a powered USB hub.

    To add to the "Pro's, they are also much quieter and less prone to resonances at lower speeds. Must say however, the various sounds of steppers can be quite pleasing at times :-)
