    Default Bar puller on T1 control?

    Anybody ever try and rig up a bar puller on T1 control? Seems like it would be a real pain in the butt, if its even possible at all. Can the chuck even be controlled with M codes? How would you go about doing the actual pull? Whole bunch of single moves? Any suggestions?

    Before they died, we pulled with our T-1's. I dont remember exactly what the process was, just a number of M codes in a Mazatrol manual unit.

    Any idea what M codes would open/close chuck?

    Main spindle, M6,M7. Subspindle, M206,M207. You will need an M5 before the open/close commands.

    Played around with this tonight. The "single" moves seem pretty easy. First time messing with that.

    But my machine doesnt seem to want to open and close the chuck. Manual also says M6/M7 but the machine just sits there and does nothing. Tried putting M5 before it, no different. Googling "Mazak T1 M6" shows other people with the same problem but havent found clear soloution yet.

    Any ideas? Seems like this wouldn't actually be too bad to setup. If only my chuck would open/close.

    Can you post exactly what your code is?
