    MagnaTurn 1218 Manuals & Software?

    Does anyone have copies of the manuals for a MagnaTurn 1218? I just got one & unfortunately it didn't come with any. I haven't powered it up yet, but in case I need it, I'd like a copy of the software too if anyone has it available!
    Mine doesn't have a chuck, I think the PO used custom collets to turn plastic parts. Does anyone know what the mount is? A2-5 hopefully? Someone told me it takes 16-C collets.

    Thanks!!

    Re: MagnaTurn 1218 Manuals & Software?

    I powered it up today & it turns out the hard drive is missing! Does anyone have a copy of the control software or a copy of the hard drive I could get from you?

    Thanks!

    Re: MagnaTurn 1218 Manuals & Software?

    I was able to get a copy of the software,1.27 I think. The control comes up now but when I press the green button that controls the main contactor it only closes it while I'm holding it down. When I let go it opens. I have the control running off single phase & have a big VFD with soft start to power the pump. I'm not sure why it won't stay on? If I hold it down to get the pump running the control locks up until I let go of it. Any ideas what's wrong?
    Once I solve this issue, how do I home it? I don't see any options for it? Also, does anyone have a list of G Codes for it? Mainly canned cycles.

    Thanks, Mike
