    Well it is good to see the images are uploading again! First and foremost: If anyone out there has a damaged spindle for a 2001'ish DMU eVo (50 or 70) that has a good stator please contact me and let me know what you want for it ASAP. I'm going to be pulling the trigger on getting the stator...

    This is just a test to see if my ability to upload images is now functioning again now that I've upgraded my PC and my operating system. This is me and the MC800H back when I first started this project...

    Hi Shawn, You can set the value the machine travels to above when you last drilled, try the Y value in the G83 deep drilling cycle. See the following: Regards, Dave @ Nerv

    Hillman skates

    For my Hilmans I purchased some really thick closed cell rubber that is used for cushioning, like anti fatigue matting, I think it's probably 3/4" thick? Anyway, place one square on each roller and when one gets a little unloaded it will still tow along nicely., instead of just staying behind...

    Oh, lastly I also picked up a DMG ultrasonic 10 with the PH2 pallet/part storage system. I have completely run out of space and only have half of my machines here, and the other half at my other shop which I rarely go to since it's a shared facility and I wanted to reduce any exposure to the...

    Hello everyone! Well I'm not sure how long it's been since my last post, but when I was casually looking for parts for my MC800H this thread came up so I figured I would post a short update. When this thread began the MC800H was my first Deckel Maho, and my first from-factory full 5 axis...

    New to me MH700C, cleaning, disassembly, power up.

    I had a feeling that was a RC51SP2 Swingarm... honestly when I looked closely I kept saying to myself, that's a V four engine, but the RC30 and 45 had single sided swingarms?! You can just make out that there are a pair of rear facing exhaust pipes. I started trying to find out if there was a...

    New to me MH700C, cleaning, disassembly, power up.

    Okay, first I thought CBR600RR by just the swingarm, but that can't be right, so then I thought RC51 SP2 by the exhaust that is nearby and the large tube above the adjustable top shock clevis mount, but then I looked up photos and the RC51 looks a bit different than that. Can't seem to place...

    Hi Marcos, I haven't really looked closely at it but I think it works much like some of the tool changing carousels I've seen on mills. It has proximity switches and adjustable lugs on a ring that basically create a unique binary code like you say for each position. I do not have...

    Anyone else having issues with inserting images?

    I've tried a few of my computers to see if it was on my end but I'm not having much luck with any of them. Typically I upload from my computer, now I'm only getting maybe 5% in and it quits uploading.

    Hello everyone, this will be a quick post. I decided for now to get some faster upgrade processors for now and keep with the existing CPU boards. This is the most for the least at this point and I'm told this gains about double in processor performance over stock (4x multiplier instead of 2x). I...

    Hello again everyone. Well I've completed many more hours of research into the subject of the VME Based CNC control itself. Here are some highlights: The VMEbus itself has been quite standardized and has also been designed to be forward and backward compatibility to keep things easier for...

    Totally, this is the other major benefit is the cleaning aspect it. Even if you did want to spend the time trying to get it clean the paint is in such poor shape it wouldn't look great despite being clean. Doing it this way serves many functions. I can't believe the price you are getting your...

    Thanks for your feedback Aaron, Yeah having it all recoated by taking it apart takes much longer but the end result looks so nice and gives you the chance to catch all the little things that might be a current or future cause for problems once the machine is going again. I've caught enough...

    Just a small update on the MC800H: The pallet changer tapered pin gripper unit actuator pins, or at least that's what I'm calling them, are now being remade. I had some Thomson 60 case ground shafting brought in just for them as the OEM pins were worn, one was actually severely damaged...

    In regards to the Albrecht/Emuge APC/Uberchuck tool: If the tool looked like the tool in this first drawing it would be fine. They obviously have come up with an updated profile to allow for the necessary clearance for certain tool changers. Not all Cat40 machines will be affected by the...

    Setting up a new home shop, advice wanted.

    I have run 20,000+ lb CNC mills from my home shop for over 10 years now. You asked for advice so don't be offended if most if not all of what I'm suggesting is well within your existing realm of knowledge. I can't say too much on your insulation as here in Canada in my region it's a must...

    Thanks for your feedback Mark (2x) I'll explain why the Uberchuck damages the carousel in my next post. The alignment procedure of the magazines as well as the spindle is a much longer process to do properly than I had thought, but worth it as now the entire sequence is pretty much silent. It...

    I'll be readdressing the CPU subject soon but for now the focus is on other parts of these machines. Here is progress on the ATC plates for Maho Jr: Tool pocket machining... Test with "I will break the OEM carousel if you try to use me" Emuge/Albrecht Überchuck to see if the new pocket...
