    Re: UCCNC and Linux

    be aware of the computing power uccnc needs. i had tried 2 older dual core computers but uccnc would occasionally not find the eth400 board on startup. cncdrive said that can happen, a dual core is...

    Re: Question on Mach3

    there are many tutorials on youtube about the step for step setup with mach3. in my experience the best thing in the beginning is work through a tutorial. then your machine should work.

  10. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    hi jim,
    it lives, it moves!!!! yeah!
    the problem was a faulty cable from my power supply. i connected pin 3 and 5 to comm, left pin 4 the standby pin alone, is that okay? 0-10v is on pin 11 and 12....
  11. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    i tried a little more. if i disconnect the original cable from pin 3 and leave pin 4 not connected (pin4 stsw= standby switch) and connect pin 3 to comm, then only the speed enable and power led...
  12. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    thanks jim, it seems you were right that terminal 5 should be not connected. i bridged pin 3 and 4 to comm and the green led with torque control did not lid this time. however the motor also does...
  13. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    hi jim,
    today i tried to connect just as you told me.
    i first removed the two existing leads at pin 11 and 12, then connected a power supply to pin 11 and 12 (3-5v). i bridged pin 3,4 and 5 to...
  14. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    thanks jim, that is good news. i have 3 phase power available, i can use the old setup for test. did i understand you correctly that i bridge pin 3,4 and 5, put them to a switch (or relay in a later...
  15. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    jim and al,

    if i understood you right that would be great news. the bob can put out 0-10v depending on the rotation speed. would i use that signal from the bob or as an alternative this d/a...
  16. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    the owner said it would be working but it was sitting in his garage for a long time. so i would not bet my life on whether the motor is working or not. and i can not test it because the old control...
  17. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    so then it would be best to lengthen the spindle and put a pulley and a spindle index pulse on it. i have a 1,1kw 3 phase motor with 2800 u/min laying around and use that with a regular vfd?

  18. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    uhu is a servo controller, here in cnc zone is an entire section on it: http://www.cnczone.com/forums/uhu-servo-controllers/
    you can drive dc servos with step/dir signal with it.
  19. Re: retrofitting anton cnc lathe servo question

    thanks. if it would be a dc servo motor, then could i use an uhu to drive it? i have some uhus laying arround. i would rather change the whole electronics to something new and not use the 30...

    i just finished the tailsock for millturn, and it works :banana: it is made from steel, with a bearing in which the center tip is. there is a little chatter because the tool is sticking out...
  24. Re: question about tailstock for millturn mill

    i would really appreciate some help on this topic. i added more detail to the model, maybe it is now clearer. there would be no need to adjust the lenght of the tailstock, an the stock would be 150mm...

    Re: are mt3 holders repeatable height holders?

    yeah, i did not quite get what you wanted to say, i did not think it would be a problem to cut the collet in front, that there would be enough surface to hold the tool holder inside the collet.
