    That would be great. Was the difference it made worth the effort?
  2. Re: Pneumatic Power Draw Bar for Shopmaster Mill Turn - DONE

    the Cylinder is a Fabco PA48-CR1.000 Pancake 4" Bore 1" Stroke Multi Stage Pneumatic Cylinder (data sheet attached). I went with this one only because it was used and a good deal on ebay. It looks...
  3. Pneumatic Power Draw Bar for Shopmaster Mill Turn - DONE

    I finally pulled the trigger and built a pneumatic cylinder/belleville washer type power draw bar for my Shopmaster Mill Turn. I had previously built and posted a draw bar using a butterfly impact...
  4. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Here are a few clips that will give you a feel for it. When I made them, I wasn't intending to upload them so they aren't real complete and don't have dialog. I did them initially for...
  5. I haven’t, but will be happy to in a few days.

  6. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Thanks for the spring info. Amazingly inexpensive.... Sounds like the proven way to go.
    I m running the PRO version of the software. I think it's the same program and the license just unlocks...
  7. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    JT sent me pics of a new model that is available that uses one cylinder mounted on the bridge and a 3:1 lever so it only requires a single cylinder. Price is $499. See attached. He said they did...

    Here are schematics of my build in case someone is interested...
  9. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Attached are a few pics of the mill spindle encoder. It is a medium duty 1000PPR from automationdirect.com. That gives the controls 4000 pulses per revolution and it has a z output for timing...
  10. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Agree. I have a large enough piece of 1 1/2" thick granite left from a kitchen remodel. I think if I did the upper support, I would also build a substantial base with the granite on it.

    Re: Power Draw Bar build

    Thank you for checking this out and responding. I have added a spindle encoder so their package won't fit. I've contacted shopmaster support (which I assume is JT although it doesn't say) about...

    Re: CUSTOMER MODS ON MILL TURN BENCH

    Any way to get the file on this. It would be a great upgrade.
  13. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Wow, that should make a difference. I would love to have that mod, but it would be a lot of work to tear the machine down that far again. Might be worth it though. Attaching it to the wall helped...
  14. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Thanks for the feedback. You're welcome to anything I've done here. First off, I was pretty limited on number of inputs without buying an expansion board so I wired the limit switches to share an...
  15. Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    Also, here is my first attempt at cutting threads on a lathe. Not any commentary in this video. Before I started cutting, I got a proper sized nut to check the fit. At the end of cutting, I could...
  16. Shopmaster Mill Turn rebuild and control conversion

    I have had a Mill Turn since 2016. I bought it thinking I would get into a machining hobby as I was planning on retiring in a few years. I was also looking a a Tormach 1100 and a stand alone...

    Re: Power Draw Bar build

    They have since come out with one that uses only one cylinder and a 3 to 1 lever for $500. However, my machine has a spindle encoder which would get in the way of their device so I would have to...

    Re: Power Draw Bar build

    Found a good thread for this in the Tormach area..... It would still be good if anyone has worked out the correct number and specs for the belleville washers.

    Thanks

    Looks good, thanks for the video.

    Re: Leadshine startup problems

    It turns out you have to use Leadshine encoder extension cables. They transpose some of the wires for some reason. Works on the bench fine now. I am running them from the terminal block. I...

    Re: Leadshine startup problems

    Did you ever get this resolved. I am trying to start up 3 HBS807S drives and can’t get them to play at all. Can’t find accurate documentation or self test to run.

    Very frustrating.
