    Power Drawbar dropping the Tool Holder when the computer is turned off on a Journeyman 325 Tree

    Hey guys I am a bit of a novice and apologize ahead of time for any incorrect lingo. I have an old Journeyman 325 Tree. I recently replaced the solenoid air valve that releases the tool holder, because it would not pull the holder in when you flipped the switch to clamp. Even though the exact...

    Tree 325 surfacing hiccups

    I am using mastercam X3. At this point, even though I am not even close to an expert, I am thinking it is not a CAM issue.

    Tree 325 surfacing hiccups

    So I now have ran the program multiple times in foam, the gouges do not occur in the same place each time. They are not occurring during rapid moves. I changed my feed plane, retract plane, and gap settings. None of these seemed to make a difference. I have two passes on the surface a rough...

    Tree 325 surfacing hiccups

    So I ran the program again out of Aluminum. Yes I am using a CAD/CAM program and the simulation show no flaws. The gouges still appeared during the surfacing command but in different spots. Towards the end of the cycle I turned my feed rate up from 6 in/min to 18 in/min and the gouging...

    Tree 325 surfacing hiccups

    So I am still very much a novice and have only a made a couple of parts. But I keep getting these strange gougings on my parts during surfacing operations. The rough passes appear to be fine but the finish passes seem to have the problem. The two times it has happened I have ran a piece of...

    Tree/Dynapath 20 Format Error

    Like I have stated in other posts I am very green yet working in the CNC Realm. So I finally got my Tree to run a program I generated in Mastercam, just a simple facing operation. However, I only was able to get it to do it once. I tried to add to program and I got '133 Format Error'. I then...

    Referencing Zero on Tree 325/Dynapath 10/20 controller

    Thank you guys for all your help. Dsergison after we got off the phone I thought about our conversation, you mentioned at one point to call Parts and Smarts, the guys that fixed my processor board. So I did. Once I got a hold of the right guy we got the problem fixed. There is a setting in...

    Referencing Zero on Tree 325/Dynapath 10/20 controller

    First of all I just wanted to tell all you guys thank you up to this point. Your help has been invaluable as I jump into the CNC world. So I am trying to get a grasp on Referencing Zero, Home, Machine Zero, and Zero Set on the Jog menu. I think I basically understand the function of them...

    Format for a Tree 325 Dynapath 10/20

    So after many hours of mucking around and talking to a lot of people, a processor board gone bad, oh and another 3 hours to find out my RS232 cable was unplugged from the processor board we successfully got my laptop to talk to my Tree. We tried a few programs that were generated by our...

    Tree 325 Dynapath, screen glitching . .. .

    Yes I did. Sorry for the delayed reply. I sent the boards to guys at Partsandsmarts and they determined it was the processor board. They sent me a rebuilt board and we are rocking and rolling.

    Tree 325 Dynapath, screen glitching . .. .

    So I semi-disassembled the controller box with the monitor in it last nigt. Unfortunately I do not have a scope. I unplugged and plugged in anything that seemed to be related to the monitor. Nothing seemed to make a difference. Although I did notice on the back side of the monitor when I...

    Tree 325 Dynapath, screen glitching . .. .

    So last week before anyone replied. I called Dynapath. Boy that was a worthless 5 minutes of my life I will never get back. After describing the problem, Mr. Monotone said I needed a new monitor for $800. I told him I would call back after I had done a little research. I opened up the back...

    Tree 325 Dynapath, screen glitching . .. .

    So I just got this Tree Journeyman 325 with the Dynapath controller about 9 months ago. I finally just got it hooked to the power. And thank you for everyones great advise on hooking it up and zeroing it. However, when I went to try and zero it last night the screen started glitching out on...

    Journeyman 325, which 2 legs off the phase converter?

    Okay I got anxious and decided to just go for it. I did use an ohm meter to check the legs, any of them there was very little resistance between. So it was a little tough to tell which was which. I chose the two that had minimal resistance to the natural legs from the computer transformer...

    Journeyman 325, which 2 legs off the phase converter?

    Thank you for all the great info dsergison. I really appreciate it. So I think we figured out which legs are the natural legs. I was wondering though for a double check, could I just leave the leg I think is the generated leg unhooked and power it up? If the computer turns on I have selected...

    Journeyman 325, which 2 legs off the phase converter?

    Okay let me just start out by saying I am probably the most rookie of CNC operators on this forum, with zero CNC experience, and probably less than a total of 10 hours over my life with a milling machine. So excuse any terminology/verbiage errors I make. After dreaming about owning a CNC...
