    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Ahhh! That makes sense! Something else for me to look into with my tool setting process. Mark

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Got it! Thank you! I learned a long time ago to document everything, before and after! And with cell phones, to take pictures of everything! As it turns out, my machine position is matching the relative position, exactly, as someone mentioned earlier in this thread that they may or may not. Any...

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    I didn't see it on any screen while powered up but I remembered seeing it while it was powering up. So I shut it down and brought it back up. Mine is 0452-04. Thank you! Mark

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Thank you! I do have the manuals. I've always found them too "techincal" to follow easily. I seem to lack the necessary patience, until I am forced into a corner. Mark

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    How do I determine which model mine is? There is a software key (PWE) under parameters to enable parameter editing. And I was able to finally get my machine position to read in English after only 18 years of suffering. LOL Hopefully I can set my tools properly now. Mark

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Happy to report moderate success!! It took a while to find the PWE (ability to edit parameters) then to find the right one (0063) and then input it properly (digit 0 - far right - needs to be a 1) Turned parameter editing off and POOF! 18 years later the machine position is reading English and...

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    What's an MTB Keep Relay? Excellent point. I have been using relative for years, maybe why I've always had grief setting tools. My machine position has always been in metric since I bought it and never pursued changing it. Maybe I should look into that first. Assuming it's a parameter. I am...

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Great suggestion! Thank you! Wish it was that easy. Must be a step above the O-M as when I hit Z to input "Z input", all I get is a "6" as that's the Z button. Appreciate your response! Mark

    Tool length offsets Fanuc O-M

    Hi Folks. I've been dealing with this ever since I was introduced to Fanuc controls years ago and just dealt with it, but decided that it's time to get the record set straight (in my mind anyhow). I know that it's been discussed in the past but I can't find those threads again. My O-M is...

    Wells Index 845 clutch quill feed adjustment

    Just a quick thank you for an incredible write up! I've been ignoring my down feed issues for years and finally decided to attack it. (Mine will engage but takes too much effort to disengage) Your explanation and videos are perfect! I really appreciate your time and effort, as I am sure many...

    Looking for advice regarding selection of new 2 axis DRO 1963 15" LeBlond lathe.

    I don't see the need to dog at all! If it works, it works! You should see some of the shit I got away with converting an old Wells Index to a Centroid system.

    Looking for advice regarding selection of new 2 axis DRO 1963 15" LeBlond lathe.

    Thank you very much for your input! I have learned over the years that you either "pay for it now, or you pay for it later". And also "buy the right thing and cry once". LOL At the suggestion from someone in another discussion, I opened up the connector on the cable that goes into the back of...

    FS Sony DRO counter

    Thank you for your response! The Y (or Z in my case) axis would be too short and I have no idea if the box is compatible to the scales I have to be able to mix and match things. Actually, I just looked up the 30 model and it appears to be identical. I might be willing to gamble if the price was...

    Looking for advice regarding selection of new 2 axis DRO 1963 15" LeBlond lathe.

    Good evening folks! I've had a Sony LH32-2K DRO on my 15" LeBlond lathe for about ten years. The X axis has started getting wonky on me. I tried cleaning the scale and the cable connections on the box, to no avail. A web search has me convinced that it's too old to bother sending anywhere for...

    Seeking wiring diagram for '97 EZ-Path S CNC lathe

    My apologies for this very late response, but I am only seeing this post now. I stumbled onto it looking for physical specs of this particular machine as I am trying to sell one just like it. If you still need the manuals, I am happy to copy mine for you. I hope you got it running and have...
