    SIP Jig Bore MP-4G Rigging and Transport Prep

    Does anyone have the rigging and transport Prep instructions for a SIP MP-4G? I just purchased one from the original owner and will be rigging and hauling it about 400 miles. I glanced thru the manual and didn't see anything. My main concern taking the stresses off the lead screws. I know it...

    Fanuc 15-t spindle RPM maxes out at 45 RPM No alarms

    I checked all the parameters on the drive, and entered them into the new board. They were the same as notes I had. Machine was running good, had gotten mice in it, but I repaired all the wiring. Most of damage was in the crt console. I've gotten everything else working and the spindle issue...

    Fanuc 15-t spindle RPM maxes out at 45 RPM No alarms

    This model has a stepped switch instead of a actual pot. I looked up the inputs in the ladder and could see all bits changing as I rotated the switch. Plus it does it on m codes also.

    Fanuc 15-t spindle RPM maxes out at 45 RPM No alarms

    I didn't think that style showed the rpm, so I never checked. I'll look at that next. On the controller it shows 43 rpm.

    Fanuc 15-t spindle RPM maxes out at 45 RPM No alarms

    I swapped the whole board out for another one that supposedly came from a running CNC (eBay). I can check the MOSFETs tomorrow but it seems unlikely both boards would have the same failure.

    Fanuc 15-t spindle RPM maxes out at 45 RPM No alarms

    I have a mori lathe with a Fanuc 15-t controller. When I input a RPM in MDI say 1500 RPM, spindle only turn 45 RPM. I'm not getting any alarms on the machine or on the spindle drive. It has a Fanuc spindle drive A06B-6055-H422. Same also happens when I use the manual button for turning...

    Just bought a small South Bend. Missing spud gear

    Thanks, I have an old sheet that shows South Bend years but only goes to 1961. I can see how I was looking at it wrong.

    Just bought a small South Bend. Missing spud gear

    So I just bought a 13" South Bend to add small part capacity to my shop, sight unseen from a government auction. They wouldn't let me preview it, something about a closed warehouse. But looks to be in good condition other than needs a new lead-screw for the cross slide (No problem there as...

    Precision Levels

    I have always used starrett master precision 199 levels or the swiss electronic ones which I do not like as much as the spirit levels. However whenever I level and align a machine I like to use 2 to 3 levels so I can see running twist and how they relate to each other I only have one master...

    Editing the ladder in M plus and T plus Control

    Does anyone have the procedure to allow editing of the ladder in either one of these controls. I have both an intergrex and a 3 axis mill that have had the ladder edited in the past, wrongly. All I need to do in both of them is change a contact from normally open to normally closed. I have...

    Mazak still broken

    Voltage surges Here where I'm from we don't see that many lighting strikes but I have seem some strange occurrences when the power fails and there is a surge right after. One comes to mind where the whole plant lost power for 20 sec. and the lit up for less than half a sec. Next 6 hours no...

    Mazak Vs. Fanuc Controls!

    Mazatrol VS Fanuc I will state from a machine tool repair principal that i like that most Mazaks are Mitsubishi based, (they are friendly and willing to help you and most manuals are available on the mits website.) I have been around many operators that love the Mazatrol conversational, but if...

    Dry milling 3/8 slots in aluminum

    Alum. Get a pail of wd40 and fill a refillable can with it and purchase a high helix aluminum carbide end mill. Makes a huge difference, spray the wd40 on while machining. Just remember alum. likes wd40. If you dont want to buy a new end mill at least use the carbide one, high rpm's though...

    How were endless rope slings braided/created?

    I have never found them as cheap as A cup of Coffee. However I do recognize the color code mentioned before. I looked through my IPT rigging handbook and several other sources and could not find a color code for slings. But I know last time I ordered them (endless) the catalog mentioned easy...

    Aluminum welding fillet size problem

    I have for years used 2% thoriated tungsten (red band) for all my Alum. welding as it is less likely to to ball or melt. I sharpen to a needle point with a long angle and usually flat the last to .020" dia. of the electrode, and only use 1/8" tungsten on anything over 3/16". I know miller only...
