    Oi-Mate-TD - Automatic corner rounding

    I see it in the Doosan 0i-TD operators manual for this machine. But it's like you say, it'll run G1 with the R but just straight line moves. G42 give me a funky move I couldn't figure out. Lol. It's probably an extra option. Brent

    Blunt Start Thread (Higbee) Questions

    I tried this on just a thread I made up. I run it on a GE Mark Centry 2000 just as a test about ten years ago. A discussion here prompted me to give it a whorl. I jacked around with it a couple times and this was about the best pull out I could get. To get it to come out looking like a fire hose...

    Can you Peck + Chip break in Brother Speedio?

    You might be able to get away with just dwelling a short bit instead of actually pecking or pulling out any. I might trying mixing absolute and incremental programming. Repeating the pecking portions by calling a sub, retracting out completely at whatever absolute Z- distances of your choosing...

    FWIW...the forum rules and guidelines stickies were getting out of hand, so

    A few years ago you used to strictly enforce members having their location listed on their profile. I see no reason why a member wouldn't want to list even a general location. I don't remember having an option when I joined up. Brent

    fanuc Oi Mate TC

    Assuming you're talking about canned cycles? Yes the roughing feed rate is in the second G71/G72 line of the canned cycle and you can't change the feed rate during the roughing part of canned cycles. You can call a G70 and put your finish feed rate on the P line. Then you can change the G70...

    Longest,widest chips with machining parameters.

    When I first got started I accidentally run a 1/4" radius tool in the face of a part. Stopped the spindle dead on a J&L machine with a 24" chuck. I've kept this in my box over 30 years. Brent

    Deep Drilling Help

    Type 2 turning (pocket) on puma300c?

    Post all the roughing cycle code. Type 2 is a extra option that may not have been standard on the Puma 20 years ago. The P block has to have both an X/U and Z. If you don't have type 2 on your machine I wouldn't hesitate to do the thread relief in one stab with the finisher providing it's not...
