    Thanks, gents. I did make some progress on it today; one of the keep relay parameters had a few bits off from the factory list I have and when I looked through the ladder it seems someone...

    I might just take you up on that offer, too.

    In Hardinge news, I'm digging into that machine now. Needed a few switches and such and now I'm fighting with some of the option codes and cleaning...
  3. Awesome! Congratulations.

    Sorry to Necro but did you get this figured out? I've got a GT-27SP with a factory parts chute on it and the manual says the same thing (M26/M25), but I'm getting an Invalid M Code error.
  5. Thanks for that! I haven't dug into the logic...

    Thanks for that! I haven't dug into the logic yet - been too busy. I still need to make some changes to the Okuma post and develop one for the new Hardinge. I'm sure the Hardinge will be pretty...

    It is in the stock post - I just turned on the simplified smoothing function.

    ETA: It would be nice to be able to have it output L0 for roughing strategies. I'll figure it out eventually but for...

    The apps guy told me the G54.2 and G68.2 don't work very well? I know at the old shop we just stuck WCS geometry into each side of the fixtures but that was before they had the option. We had to do...

    Incidentally, I got the Lang quick point plate running within about 0.0002" on the face using some shims, and the vise jaws are now out about 0.0018" at 0deg and 180deg. For a self centering vise...

    I am - I got a bunch of toolholders but only one main plate. The plates are return-to-zero swappable so I'm planning on building a few for some different products I make and *maybe* some light job...

    Funny enough I'm finding I've been absolutely spoiled by the OSP control. It isn't just because I run it more since I've got plenty of Fanuc and Brother experience (plus two Fanucs in the shop on my...

    Head to the electrical section if you want more info on how the buck/boost setup works. You need two of them to modify the relationship between all three phases (buck/boost are also called...

    I would probably try to think up some kind of simple taper gauge I could use for in-process checks so I'm not constantly at the surface plate. Like it has to slide between two dowel pins on a flat...
  14. Ouch! I do know the Brother has exclusion zones...

    Ouch! I do know the Brother has exclusion zones you can set up. I've seen that on most newer lathes I've run so it surprise me that it isn't more common. Especially when you've got machines out...

    I have never had luck posting lathe code from Fusion and getting radii correct. I'm sure I am doing something stupid with the tool nose direction or shape or whatever, but I end up just posting "in...

    So, the Hardinge needs a new contactor for the lubrication system, that's what was causing problems. The power was phased correctly but evidently I'm an idiot and forgot M3/M4 are from the spindle...
  17. I had the same machine and don't recall there...

    I had the same machine and don't recall there being an all-in-one screen. If there was, I feel like it would be in with the Program Check soft keys.
  18. Appreciate it! I'll add something for the...

    Appreciate it! I'll add something for the toolsetter as well.

    I've got the post processor pretty much squared away. About the only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to turn off the shower...
  19. Thanks! Today I spent a few hours getting the...

    Thanks! Today I spent a few hours getting the post processor right while the other spindle was running longer cycle time parts. Still a few things I don't like about the code but it'll run without...

    *sigh*

    Okay, how much $$$ for the CAD model?

    Looks great!

    Fanuc sells the manuals for very reasonable prices but some will have ridiculous lead times.

    Can't help with the other stuff, sorry.
  22. I can look back at other quotes that I got but...

    I can look back at other quotes that I got but Brother offers an "end support" I think it is called? There are hydraulic, pneumatic, or hand-operated units but I had no plans to use any. If I had...

    It is on my "to-do" list to build a sub plate that will hold the 4th off the table and also allow me to relocate the probe to the space behind where the 4th is now. I'm working on the designs.

    Installation and training finished up today. There were a few issues that needed sorting. The dual contact 16k spindle is only available as a field upgrade, so that took half a day. Part of that...

    We've been in what is called "community transmission" since late 2019 or very early 2020. By definition, it is impossible to perform reliable contact tracing at this point. A $10k fine is chump...
