    Wow, I didn't realize how important the 'cast iron' value was. In some foggy recess I thought I had informed the forum that I mostly machined plastic, only to find out its a forum badge. I would...

    Anyway, I pried it off without too much trouble. The deal was that one of the balls fell out, I suppose one of the lower outer ones, so then it wedged in funny when it got tightened down.

    Have you had a bad experience with carr-lane in particular? They are made in the usa, I'm not aware that the design is much different.

    Now cast iron

    The forum says I do cast iron now. Its news to me.

    Anyway, perhaps this setting could be exposed for user changeability?

    Also, does anyone else notice that the forums are real slow?

    In my experience you have to fiddle with the macro settings to get this closest, I really don't know why a standard calibration doesn't get closer, at least for me.

    Per the Renishaw manual:

    Make sure everything is tight and level per above. Indicate and see if ots is moving first though? It should repeat around .0002", although it can be a touch more from cold to warm.

    I never checked their IP for blacklisting. I tried mulitiple times to click not spam, it isn't working for me.

    This is pretty much why you don't use shared hosting. Or if you aren't and your are...

    I'm not sure why, but for me Gmail is now interpreting all practicalmachinist subscription alerts as spam. Perhaps the admin needs to review the mail server settings? I'm not sure who to contact...

    I think alibre could be a viable option, however I chose a different route because in my opinion their CAM options are scary.

    There is no modem. The purpose of a null modem adapter is basically to reverse rx and tx, to allow two hosts to talk to each other , like if two pc's want to talk to each other through rs232.

    If you are using the HAAS pack, I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be greasing it, I'd say its together and shouldn't come apart, at least according to HAAS.

    I replaced the bearings in the thrust pack...

    Having written a number of my own probing routines using standard renishaw/haas calls, I'm going to suggest an alternate route is to write your own, and use some type of gcode passthrough to call...

    I'd really sort of suspect the drive. The drive also supplies your high voltage dc, at least if it is brushless. Perhaps the internal caps, or diode bridge?

    Have you checked the command voltage at the drive at commanded speed? It should be linear, 10v = max rpm

    I can't recall for sure, but I think there is a commanded speed and real speed. If I recall correctly, the drive returns a real speed with a 0-10v signal.

    You could check to see if the 0-10v spindle signal is reaching the spindle drive, at least I assume this uses a spindle drive and not a vector drive. I just recently had an issue I tracked down to...

    Does anyone with programming skills exist in your circle? If not, tread carefully, there are lots of shops ready to take your money, and the cheaper their rate the worse it is going to be.
