    Re: Tool Changer for a Torus Pro

    I thought I wanted a toolchanger. Using the power draw bar made me realize I did not. All it takes is a chip getting on the spindle and there goes your Z height. Probably could arrange an air blast...

    Re: Mixed up tools and height offsets

    Its solved. I went into the Fusion 360 post processor for centroid and turned off the "preload tool" option. It no longer outputs the extra tool command. Since I already manually deleted the lines I...

    Re: Mixed up tools and height offsets

    Thanks for the help guys. I did some experimenting today. My machine does not support precall I don't have a tool changer. Too much $$$ for me at this point. I deleted the precall lines 35 and 115...

    Re: Spindle rebuild NM-135

    ok I was sitting in the shop and remembered this thread. Pushing hard on the spindle I get about .001" of deflection. I did adjust the bearings a while back because I had a lot of spindle runout. If...

    Re: Mixed up tools and height offsets

    Thanks breezy.

    Looks like I should look for a setting in the centroid control then.

    Mixed up tools and height offsets

    I noticed today that I was getting a mixed tool number and height offsets. I get a T2 H3 then a T3 H2. Obviously this wont work. The code calls the correct tool number then on the next line calls for...

    Re: Spindle rebuild NM-135

    How hard are you pushing on the spindle? I have a torus pro and it deflects with what I consider light pressure. I have not measured how much lately though.

    Re: Jerky movement with Mach3 and Mastercam

    Do you have "exact stop" turned on in mach 3? Exact stop can cause pauses in movement.
  10. Re: Acorn/Beagle Board Green. GROVE I2C output for i/o expansion

    Ok I was just curious. I live in the opposite side of the country now. I lived on the north end of your island years ago. I spent 2 years in Port Hardy. There is some sort of expansion board in the...

    Drewtronics CNC probe

    Hello All:

    I was looking for a probe for my cnc mill a while back and like most was having a tough time justifying $1000 plus for a probe. I did some searching around and found a probe by a...
  12. Re: Acorn/Beagle Board Green. GROVE I2C output for i/o expansion

    Must be some sort of error. I don't think they care on the centroid acorn site if you have one of their products or not. I joined before I had one. What part of Canada are you in?
  13. Re: Acorn/Beagle Board Green. GROVE I2C output for i/o expansion

    From what I can recall its overdue for release so anytime. Centroid has its own support forum specifically for the acorn. I would ask questions there. You are more likely to get a response.
  14. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    Its now fully wired in and everything is tested and working. I used to have some issues with the acorn not connecting if it was turned on before the computer. That is no longer the case. (Not sure...
  15. Re: Mach3 errors / crashes after trying to set steps

    Probably for the best. I think some people just luck out on their hardware setup. I have an older computer as well that it did work on ok.
  16. Re: Mach3 errors / crashes after trying to set steps

    When you say you click save are you pressing enter first? I'm going by memory because I got rid of Mach 3 a while back. When you enter the data you have to click enter after every change. If you...

    Re: Dunedin NZ smal job needed

    I have a CNC mill and lathe. The lathe is not operational yet. I recently bought a manual lathe to go along with them. I thought there was no need for a manual lathe but I think now it will be a...

    Re: Dunedin NZ smal job needed

    I think what Rcaffin was getting at is that tubes are hollow and not solid. You probably mean you have a round bar. Cutting down a tube the amount you mention would be a huge reduction. There would...

    Re: So this is what happened.

    Congratulations on getting your acorn running. Its a good feeling when you get a computer to move a machine like you want it to. I am in the early stages of testing an acorn but it seems to be...
  20. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    I remembered wrong. It was the 6 pin connector to the motherboard I left disconnected. It seems to make no difference though. The power draw bar works without it. I'm expecting the new power supply...
  21. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    I did get the power draw bar hooked up. I got the two connectors hooked up that you mentioned those were the logical ones. The one that I was confused about is the 8 pin one that goes to the...
  22. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    I got the Y axis calibrated and also the probe tip. Numbers are better but not perfect. I think its a problem with my measuring system I need to set up something better for testing. Worst case was...
  23. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    I bought the one with the 3/8" shank. I then put it into an TTS holder that I had here. I don't see the benefit in getting one already in a TTS holder its cheaper to go the route I did. Possibly the...
  24. Re: Anyone considering the centroid Acorn instead of path pilot?

    Some good news the power supply for the acorn is fine. I was getting a 2 VDC pulse so I thought it was blown. I took it out and bench tested it it seemed to be working. I then put an ohm meter...
  25. Re: I have a Novakon NM-200R2 with about 20 hours on it for sale (motivated seller)bu

    There is not a whole lot to the electronics on this mill so it should not be to hard to figure out. How dead is it? No power at all? One or more axis won't move? Do you know how to use the...
