    You come on here looking for business then you say something stupid like that? Translate this, GFY!

    I have seen this before when e-stop or some other reason the tool changer did not complete the cycle. I had to manually change a keep relay after recovering the tool changer. This only happened a few...

    I have a 1983 Maintenance Manual and a 1975 Operator's Manual that were in my 3 hole binder if you don't find the right years for your machines. The maintenance manual is dirty from use. I added a...

    If I was troubleshooting this I would try to single block thru the tool change while observing the keep relay in question. It sounds like there may be something wrong with the macro program.

    I had this alarm on a customer's machine back in April where the operator stalled the spindle with a large dull drill. It took out the drive. I got a replacement from TIE (Fanuc World) the next day...

    When in doubt as to what the ATC is waiting for, go to the machine diagnostic page and it should tell you what is wrong. The link below explains what happens with each step in the tool change...

    Well that's not very helpful. I see what you are dealing with now. It would have been nice had they included a diagram of the light itself. Only 2 spots, got a coin?

    300 should be the common to all the lights, so it needs to be hooked up. A photo might help understand what you are dealing with. What wire numbers you have and a photo of the base of the light stack...

    Ain't that the truth! Got a quote for an aluminum 6 groove 6" diameter spindle motor pulley for a customer once, $4k. They chose to install the used one. :)

    About 3 months ago I had a customer that had a bad CRT on a Hardinge lathe. It was a Fanuc but he bought the LCD retrofit on ebay for $350 as opposed to $1900 for a Fanuc refurbished unit. He said it...

    You drill out the holes in the 2 fittings that the copper lines screw into. Remove the lines, remove the fittings and drill the small orifices out to .050" to .060".

    Do it with the power off, and rotate the spindle as you use the air. You should here it shift and feel the drag change on the spindle. I would also open up that orifice in the fitting to .060" if you...

    Check your program. That message is saying that you commanded the turret to index while the milling tool was commanded to run. You did not say what machine you have but a lot of Okuma live tool...

    Most of the time if you open up the small orifice the gear box and valve will work much better. If you use a rubber tipped air gun on the brass lines and it shifts gears I would replace the solenoid...

    Send me your email address and I will send you what I have. It will keep you busy reading until the machine arrives. :)

    It sounds like the two anti rotate pins on the piston are not in the holes, which is limiting the stroke of the piston. You need to pull it back apart and align the piston.

    You probably already...

    Hi Vegard,

    Yes, you have a good understanding of what to do generally. A rebuild shop isn't going to replace just the Turcite on the flat ways, they will strip all of the Turcite from the table,...

    Some VDI tool plates have a pin to push against with set screws to pivot the tool and indicate them in. If your tool plate doesn't have this there isn't much you can do.

    The only way someone could do it remotely would be to ship the y-axis saddle. The x-axis ways are part of the y-axis saddle and the only way to fit it would be to send both. That is why the quote was...

    I think that looks like a decent enough machine and worth the money to fix it the right way. If you aren't in a rush to get it repaired you could host a scraping class that Rich offers in the Machine...
