  1. Re: Buying SIEG SC4 LATHE (M3, CNC ready). Good idea?

    Little lathes can do plenty of great work. Cutting steel or deep threads with CNC is a no brainer. It just keeps repeating the sequence as many times as needed ;-) Congrats. I have machined a few...
  2. Re: Spindle Turning off or not moving- Prolight 3000

    You are checking it static with no load. I suspect the pot is burnt up. Try a new one as a test. Cheap and three wires. Or you might be able to milk it with some tuner spray. Try to clean the pot....

    Re: Universal ATC Kit

    There is a setting within Mach that will allow it to remember its position during a shutdown and subsequent reboot. However to trust it for the savings of a minute would be foolish.

    Re: Dyna Myte 2800 rebuild

    Nice video and detail on your build.
  6. Re: Advice on closed loop stepper unit please

    You are running a stepper and your belief is it has too much torque? Is it missing steps? Have you tried different microstepping values?

    Sherlines will surprise you once you get the feel for them.

    Even though you tested it, I still suspect the potentiometer.
    In my experience on Dyna machines, the switch from CNC to manual usually only involves the ground.

    Re: Hoss's G0704

    In my case it wasnt missing steps nor had any loose hardware.
    And it wasnt consistent in the amount traveled positive or negative.
    This was years ago. It was damned infuriating. Especially after...

    Re: Hoss's G0704 - I need help with a new WEIRD problem, HOSS you still around Help

    I had a similar issue on my DM3000 lathe. It has a 6 tool changer. For ages it was spot on. It started doing just as you described and I could never find the cause. However I was running Mach3 via...
  12. Re: Newb question about microstepping. LMS 3990 mill. Mach4

    The less steps the computer has to generate the better imo.
    Theoretical resolution is over used.

  13. Re: Spindle Regrinding Service for Benchtop Machines

    HW, I have a UMC10. I cant say I am overly impressed with the toolholders themselves. That short modded R8 might be its issues.
  14. Re: Need pinout for Prolight 3000 lathe turret cable

    Does it have an electromagnetic pawl? If so it is bidirectional like the Dyna 3000’s. Most people dont seem to repurpose it and just go x amount of degrees (60 for a 6 tool etc) and back into the...

    Re: Replacing GO704 table. Will it work?

    The new table will not just be a plug and play item.
    It would fit but not likely to be smooth or trouble free.
    Larry’s idea sounds best, plus it is sacrificial. Something you wish you had in place...

    Nice in every detail , not just the changer.
  17. Re: HF 44991 X2 Mill wired so pot/switch is "backward"

    Get a new machine because of a problem with a potentiometer?
    It is wired incorrectly.
    Do the test mentioned above.

    Re: G0704 - Chasing a more quiet spindle still

    This is exactly what I built years ago. Still have it and it works great.

  20. Re: Labvolt 5400 5500 5600 update firmware procedure????

    I agree. Personally I wish the G540 had screw terminals and a pot for the resistor.

    An MX3660 would be a good unit too

    Double ball nuts will be better than single nuts hands down.

  23. Re: Labvolt 5400 5500 5600 update firmware procedure????

    As you will find out there will be a slim chance of interacting with the original motion controller. For a variety of reasons. Pictures of the machine and control boxes if possible always help.
