    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    You may need a new Hall switch. I had to replace mine. The light on the switch should be lit when near the magnet.

    Re: Threading on a Patriot Shopmaster

    For what it's worth, I have never got a G76 cycle to work right. I use G32 I think. I have some notes for what worked written in my manual but don't have it with me right now. I fought the thing for...

    Re: 2007 Tri-Power not repeating

    What kind of accuracy are you looking for? Plus or minus .0002 or .002?

    Re: Touch off

    How do the numbers on the Delos dro compare to the Mach 3 dro? Is there some lost movement somewhere? Are the steps per unit set up correctly? Backlash?

    Mill Turn - Limit and home switches

    After thinking about it for a while, I decided to install limit switches on my Mill Turn machine. I found only one or two examples of limit switches installed on Shopmaster machines and nothing on...

    Re: Shopmaster Mill Turn 2017

    @timshufflin,

    Shopmaster Mill Turn 2017

    Things are pretty slow around here so I thought I'd upload some photos of my Mill Turn 2017.
