    That is helpful! I am pretty well still at the beginning of my journey with the 5t. The early version of some of the CAN cycles, using G50 and other formatting is a bit of a curve. I feel like I've...

    I edited the forceDecimal out. I think I like the idea of out puting g code with decimals and then using note/word pad to edit them out. This has been pretty easy so far. That way I can check over...
  3. Gotcha! Either my implementation of where is goes...

    Gotcha! Either my implementation of where is goes in the code is no good or it does not like having the field empty. That's ok. I can edit out the decimal with word/note pad I believe. This is...

    I just searched the post using the search option in word pad for '.' and came up with no such characters in the post. But I found where it says just that in the training guide.

    I have and had no response at all. I think I got it though. Thanks!

    I actually was unaware of any such material until I found the following link this morning.

    Thanks for taking...

    I posted in a few places looking for help with this to no avail. I am going to try and update those threads for anyone this may help. Hopefully this is correct it seems to work as intended in...
  8. Fanuc 5t Post Processor edits for Fusion 360 Help needed

    Is any one here using a Fanuc 5t or similar with Fusion 360? I am facing 2 problems (that I know of) One is the 5t does not recognize decimal points. The other problem is the G Code that is being out...

    My terminal settings using NC Link. The BTR Board is from Advanced Digital Research. I did reach out to them and they were polite but mostly unwilling to clarify my questions about...
  11. BTR Board Update

    I finally seem to have the btr board operating. I have been hand entering programs into the memory. While that works it is cumbersome and time consuming. Not a big deal if it will be set up to run...

    I know this is an old thread. I found it due to my desire to DNC from old salvage computers. For anyone else lurking the topic I suggest maybe running a virtual windows machine on your linux. I have...

    I have purchased this Machine from the OP. There are not a lot of threads about these machines out there so I thought I may keep it going a bit instead of starting a new one.

    The OP is a great...

    The water here without a doubt is hard... I wonder if it would be worth while to source some water off site to mix up? After all I'm only running flood coolant in one lathe and a saw. And would not...

    So looking into it Blaser products seem to get really good reviews. But purchasing seems to be somewhat difficult. I am waiting to hear back from a sales person as you can not buy it from the usual...

    I know it's like asking which car is best but as long as I can weed out the Pintos, Gremlins, Delorians (and whatever under performing death traps there were) and get a top 5 or so I'll be happy....

    Cool and thank you for listing which exact type. Blaster was another one I kept coming up with in searches (on the forum). What materials do you use it with? And turning or turning and milling? Just...
  19. Which flood coolant for CNC turning? So many choices!

    Ok for some reason I just can't remember what coolants we ran at any of the shops I've been at. Probably because there was so much other stuff I was focused on. I am finally adding more CNC...

    That's a great help! And you are right it does look as though there was a counter weight. I didn't notice it in the pictures on the Famco site but it seems to be there on this family of press. What...

    I do believe the hand wheel is original. The Famco #2 and #3 seem to have a hand wheel similar to the one on my 13. Famco's website is not very helpfull as there are no direct pictures of the 13 that...

    That would be great if you could load a pic on here of the ratchet pawl. I have a mental image more or less based off the system on a come along in my head. But a picture would take some guess work...

    After having some more time to look over this machine I have found that it has been used often and heavily. The operating handle is bent from over loading. And there is notable wear on the gear from...
  24. Scrap Yard Score! 3 Ton Famco Arbor Press. Picture and Video.

    I made a run to the scrap yard with a load of old junk bike parts, frame sections, machining chips and unusable drops. While I was there I found a 3 ton Arbor press on the factory stand. I dragged it...

    I only paid $150 for my powermatic and thought it was a fair price for all involved. I had no clue they were that valuable. It is a nice drill press with the variable speed belt clutch or what have...
