  1. What year was the last Generation Deckel FP2 Released

    Hi all,

    What year was the last Generation Deckel FP2 Released?

    Alex,

    Another thing to check is what is called the E-string.

    The E stands for emergency stop, you know that big red button
    on the control.

    The string part of it is all the elements that...
  3. Z axis servo drive current requirement for a FP3nc

    Hi Ross,

    Were you able to look up the current requirement for the
    Z axis servo drive on the FP3nc?

    Alex,

    If there is no CRT how do you know you received a drive fault?
    Is there an LED that lights up to indicate a failure?
    How do you initiate the drive to move an axis?

    I don't know how the...

    Colt,

    I just searched out the answer to your prior statement, and
    you appear to be correct - electrolytic capacitors do tend
    to fail when they are left un-powered for long periods.

    Colt,

    You maybe correct about keeping the machines working or
    powered on. My old Lagun sat unused for 10 years before
    I started trying to resurrect it.

    I wonder what the oldest working cnc...

    Hi Ross,

    Thank you for the shifting information.

    It sounds like it might be doable from a PLC or from a PC, given
    that there is a shifting logic diagram.

    Hi Ross,

    Do you know what the current would be for the FP3NC, talked about in this post?

    I have 4 or 5 servo drives that might work for this machine.

    This machine might just have a dead crt,...

    Ross,

    what is the voltage that the servo drives have to drive the servos with,
    and what current is used by the servos?

    1000EE,

    Tell me how much you want for it, what comes with it, and what
    manuals do you have.

  11. Has anyone heard of an MR brand surface ginding wheel

    Hi All,

    I bought a supposed CBN surface grinding wheel on ebay.

    The wheel was marked "MR" "D2291". I have never heard of
    that brand of wheel, and the D2291, sounds like it should be
    a diamond...
  12. Tell Me about the Deckel Dialog 3 cnc control

    Hi All,

    Looking at euro mills, trying to decide which way to go.

    How does the dialog 3 CNC control compare to the dialog 4, and can the 3
    be upgraded to a 4? Is it easy to up grade and is it...

    Kpotter,

    Before you go to far down this road you should buy Bud Guitrau's book and
    read the sinker section. Good to know what you are getting into.

    I think a non-cnc would be just fine for...
  14. Tell me all about the Deckel CNC 3M control

    Hi all,

    How does the Deckel 3m compare to the Dialog 4.

    What are it's strong points and weaknesses.

    How hard is it to change over the CRT to a LCD?

  15. 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.

    So if you are a...

    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...

    Mike,

    I have looked at this problem quite a bit, and there are a lot of issues at play.

    You say you are an electronics Ludite - what about software programming?

    Hi Denis,

    I loved your video.

    So how did you come up with your exact design?

    I have suggested in the past, that people should use finite
    element analysis to develop straight edge designs to...

    Hi Ross,

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

    I frequently use my Gorton Profiler just because it's quick and easy.

    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

    Hi All,

    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.
