  1. Tilt, Swivel, and Rotate Table VS Plain Table

    Hello all,

    I was wondering why people who have both tables want
    to switch back and forth between them?

    Does the universal table just not have enough rigidity
    when compared to the plain table?...

    Ross,

    Remember I said plus or minus 10V, This implies that you vary the
    voltage between the two limits. If you just hit it with 10V
    you are making a bang-bang control system, instead of the...

    Hi Ross,

    I have no trouble with the Dialog 4 CNC control.

    The only reason I'm looking for a dead NC is the price,
    as it should be very cheap, because without a working CNC
    unit, as you point...

    Hi Guys,

    Many of you have missed the point, but that must be my lack
    of a good explanation.

    I have a Brother TC-22A which is faster than any retrofit Deckel
    will ever be. 12,000 rpm spindle,...

    One thing, you won't be able to do any retrofit without
    a complete set of electronic schematics.

    If you can't read the schematics you won't be able to
    do the retrofit.

    mTeryk,

    I think your comments show your lack of knowledge about control systems.

    The simple part would come if you re-used the existing components like
    the servos and servo amp. I don't have...

    Hi Ross,

    The manual machines have rpm on the order of 2,000 - to slow.

    DeadMahoDude,

    I would use still the servos. You don't need a CNC control to run
    the servos (if you know what you are doing).

    A dead Deckel/Maho would be old and not worth trying to resurrect...

    Deckel Style Mills

    I was wondering if the Japanese or Chinese ever made mills in the style
    of Deckels or Mahos with universal toolmaker tables? I know about the
    Makino series.

    On the question, does it require the batteries.

    to run it without the batteries you most likely would

    There are several ways to fix the shaft:

    2) hard chrome, and grind the new surface.
    On the hard chrome method the other surfaces will

    Matt,

    I don't know your back ground, but if it were me I would figure
    out the charmilles jig and squareness method and simulate it
    on your Makino - it's just a simple matter of geometry.

    That's what happens from time to time when your 75 years old.
