    The raw misinformation and extrapolated anecdotes in this thread are a case study in what makes the internet great. :crazy:

    Look for an RS-232 connection in the electrical cabinet (the big one,with all the drives). If it's not in there, just save yourself the headache and buy the ethernet card. It plugs in to a PC slot in...

    I would be wary of accepting an "in the field" repair of a problem this significant. Whatever was installed upside down, left loose, wrong part, or whatever - could have ramifications that don't make...

    "If I put a test indicator from spindle to tombstone and hit the stone with the palm of my hand the indicator will bounce .005 but always return to 0."

    If you mean .005 inch and not .005mm, look...

    I have shrinkers, and regofix PG, and 40hp 40 taper machines. I agree that both are superior to side lock in nearly all situations, but you cropped the caveat out of my post.

    On a 40 taper Haas...

    That's .0036mm

    3.6 Micron

    Not .0036 Micron

    .001mm = 1 Micron

    Not powered up - it's worth half of scrap value. (Because the scrap yard won't take it unless you remove everything). So $250. No, I'm not kidding.

    Your tool change macro might be poorly written - leaving your machine in G91 after a tool change. Add a G90 after the tool change. If that doesn't fix it - something is wrong with your machine.

    They are killing it. And even when they are "slow" - their margins are breathtaking compared to the rest of the industry. It is without question the "best business" in the machine tool industry.

    There's a subtle irony in the guy who built the best business by building mediocre machines - transitioning to an industry(F1) where you absolutely can't build the best business without building the...

    Looks like a power surge/brown out. Did you try powering all the way down and back up? Make sure to check the incoming power as well.

    Call Mazak. You'll either need to run (and pass) the actual spindle trial run, or you'll have to go into diagnostics and force a bit to turn off the alarm. We don't have any M Plus machines, so I...

    The shape and color gave it away, especially the taller front corner that's dark grey:

    It shouldn't be. We bought a used machine built by a swiss company, and the manufacturer wanted $12,000 for applications training. My tool salesman set me up with a guy who ran a similar machine at...

    Killer machine. Hard to top a 30,000+rpm 100+hp spindle in aluminum!

    Yeah if it couldn't cut aluminum, there was something very very wrong. Which Makino model did you replace it with? They don't make anything like an e1060?

    There was definitely something wrong with your machine - and it would not surprise me to hear of the service in the Northwest saying that performance is "normal". There are a bunch of them near me...

    Uh, I am not a salesman. I am a person that buys machines - machines that all have probes - and I use them to hold very tight tolerances. I'm not trying to insult you. I am trying to get the point...

    LOL. Don't take this the wrong way - but you are so far out of the loop on "innovation" - you don't even know what you don't know. You really need to join SME, NTMA, etc - and go on some factory...

    I don't need to look up lobed holes and shafts. Nobody said lathe only makes round cylinders. Dstyr's lathe has already proven it makes round cylinders. This is about idiot proofing the measurement...

    Obviously probing 3 points for flatness on a large, unflat surface, on a large, old machine is going to result in a lot more variation than a small, precise, round diameter.
