    Re: Fanuc G84 rigid tapping code

    Thanks everyone for your help, the S400 and M03 above the M29 line was a big factor in the slowness for sure. With the M29 line the M03 is unnecessary. I had been using the S400 with the M03 with no...

    Thank you Jim for taking a look. I did not see anything either but another set of eyes is always a valuable asset. I agree it may be in the machine controller as a delay for all the stars to get...

    Re: USB Breakout Board Recomendations?

    Actually it's not. USB connect disconnect issues. I've used it for a year and that's another reason I went with Centroid. UCCNC worked OK for awhile. then started having issues with it on 2...

    Re: USB Breakout Board Recomendations?

    Re: Skyfire CNC owners?

    Thanks, I've watched it a few times, in fact I've probably watch every Skyfire video on the planet in the last year a few times.

    Re: Skyfire CNC owners?

    Just a bit over 1.5". I used 1.5 inch wide steel rec. tubing. I had to pry up a bit because the pallet was a bit bowed under it but they go through fine. Just go slow as it's really heavy.
