    Default Okuma Cadet Parts Catcher?

    I was curious if any of you that have one of the 1990 era model Okuma Cadet's have an original parts catcher on yours? I would like to see pictures of one. I have seen other newer models on bigger Okuma lathes. I have the parts catcher lever and mounting base, it works, but not basket on this one when I purchased it a year and a half ago. I do a lot of fabrication/welding too so it wont be an issue to make something nice. Upon a google search, I couldn't find anything.

    Thank you, Clayton

    just design one and craft it you may not be pleased by default one

    there are cases when basket gets modified ...

    having the mechanism in good condition, even without a basket, is pretty good

    Oh I've seen a bunch of them made and modified. I just wanted to get a baseline from their design, that's all.

    I've got a 1998 crown with one on it. Is that too new?

    Here are a couple pics. Not sure how much detail that you need.

    I've seen one similar. Mine must have been aftermarket. The actuator is quite different than any other I've seen.

    I will be fabricating a nice basket. It functions with the M Codes, has some light air leaks in the hoses. But I'm going to pull new ones and get it going.

    A while back we discovered the optional M codes on this machine for the Parts catcher. I’ve rebuilt everything, M codes work in MDI. But if I call it in a program right when parting off it flips up then the program just stops and my STM light is on.

    Any ideas what else I might have to put in the program? Literally every part of my program to bar pull work with a loop part counter. The only thing I did was add an M101 to flip the parts catcher up, then a few lines down I put M102 to flip it down. Don’t work.

    Looking forward to getting this figured out. Thanks for any help in advance.
