    I used to think it was exclusion of oxygen that set Loctite. Talked to a technician at the company and it is certain metal ions that accelerate the hardening. Stainless and aluminum are essentially...

    No clue where to look but you might clarify what you are looking for.

    A collet with slots in it does not seem practical to me, maybe it is but my first guess is no.

    Tried to send you a PM but your box is full. Do you know the name of the fellow that was going to do AHHA support. A friend has one that we can get the "W" axis working after a hard drive failure.

    I do not know if I have ever seen in a HC control box. I seem to remember a 115 volt transformer inside my HLV-H box. Your feed motor is probably 110 volts DC, the same as the 220 volt version. So...

    The OT on the Tsugami takes about 30 secs. The control on the AHC likes to be off a minute before powering down.
