    https://www.ebay.com/itm/114790656685

    Well, looks like the $800 GMT Spindle is going to sell for about $150. I am sure you can out bid the current highest by a penny and win it.

    The auction...

    Brand new GMT Spindle 3HP for sale

    This would be the GMT 3HP that came with my Avid 5x20 pro. I got it, opened the box and never installed it. It's nice and all but it isn't ATC. I have a S30C from CNCDepot.net and a 10 tool carousel...

    Looks like it will sell for that $1. You all have till Sunday to make a bid!
  5. GMT Spindle Motor Air Cooled 2.2 kW (3HP) 24000 RPM ER20 for CNC Router Mill

    I posted my GMT Spindle Motor Air Cooled 2.2 kW (3HP) 24000 RPM ER20 for a CNC Router Mill on ebay.

    The box was opened but the unit never installed as I "upgraded" before it got to the shop. It...
  6. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    I have no idea why they moved my post to metal working machines when my machine is clearly a wood, foam and non-ferrous metals machine.

    How do you move it back? Dunno. Whoever moved it needs to be...
  7. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Well! Good news. I have "safe'd" the code more than I thought I could. There is some weirdness in Lua that if you don't ask for things in a very specific way it tends to just ignore you. If anyone is...
  8. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    I wouldn't be surprised. I get the feeling the company isn't owned by a software developer. It was like they hired somebody to write Mach4.

    I also (with my 35 years of intuition) think who the guy...

    Oh, gosh. Slowed way down but my machine isn't fast to start with. The servo can tear that worm drive up pretty quickly too. That is the little NEMA 23 from Teknic.

    Mach4 is pretty I guess but is...
  10. I am a LinuxCNC guy myself but the machine I...

    I am a LinuxCNC guy myself but the machine I purchased from AvidCNC uses Mach4. Once the electronics get old I am dumping Mach4 and going back to LinuxCNC. I am not impressed. I have no ill will or...
  11. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Anything is possible. We shall see going forwards.
  12. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Hello! I am still working on this project. I have been having troubles with Mach4 and Lua. The actual ATC carousel has been wrapped up for a while now. I am looking into mass production for a few...
  13. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Preston,

    Cool! I just got through installing Alpha 3 as I am calling it. I have replaced all of the 3D printed parts with plasma cut components. I will make the 3D printed one available put it...
  14. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Same here. If it retracts from the workspace then I gain about 8" inches back on my 5'x10' machine. I paid for that workspace and I want to use it. That is what was killing me with static posts. I...
  15. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Thanks for the input! Once I have this out we can start looking at other systems to integrate with. Keep in touch!
  16. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    I am running Mach4 but it would be easy to port to Mach3 and LinuxCNC. I have decided to shoot for end of June or early July for release to github. I am making a custom PCB to simplify the...

    I was measuring the lift off and seating during operation of the drawbar in that video. I need to get the system cleaned up and better video made of it.

    I use GitHub a great deal, but the time it...
  18. I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing it?

    Hello!

    I recently added an ATC spindle to my CNC. I quickly out grew the static tool posts that came with it.

    When I looked for a tool carousel I couldn't find one that was affordable and my...

    Thank you very much, Mr. Dawson! I appreciate the help. You made my weekend go better than expected. I will check into the FogBuster.

    Re: Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Well, I took off about 5 mm of the 1018 bar where it was rough without a hitch. The end mill survived (the 1/2" HSS) which is always nice. The calculator seem to be pretty accurate as to the speed...

    Re: Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Interesting, I never read that page through until now. I always just glanced it over when it popped up in my search results. The end mill is kind of big and I am moving a little fast and going way...

    Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Hello! If somebody would like to comment on my plans here it would be nice. I'm hoping somebody will see an obvious flaw in my plans and point it out. I have actually tried to find classes in milling...

    MadCAM Status for 2017?

    Hello!

    I am making my budget for software in 2017. MadCAM hasn't seen an update in a while and there are features still out sanding that I require. Granted I am an odd ball user so this isn't a...

    HSM Pro is a plugin

    Also, many people tell me the 3+2 in Fusion is very usable. It does the whole stock on a stick (Z, X with A...
  25. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    I am running 2.7.4 as of 2 hours ago. I can assure you G93 is still required to mix linear and angular motion. The silky smoothness is just breath taking because the mill itself is a piece of crap...
  26. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    Which is exactly why I would love to see G93 in MadCAM.

    Let's just be frank here, MadCAM's 3 axis output is beautiful. Very comparable to software costing 5 or even 10 times its price, Rhino3D...
  27. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    Uh, not sure what you are asking.
  28. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    As you are aware LinuxCNC requires G93 input for angular axis and linear axis to be used together. My machine is 4 axis. I did configure the system to use a constant speed on the A axis but it got...
  29. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    It doesn't matter anymore because I use a G-Code genertaor from AutoDesk that fully supports G93 and LinuxCNC.

    If I remember correctly the guy who set up your machine set the A axis to a constant...
