    Just to chime in on the probing, non-manufacturing quality wired 3D probes can be purchased for ~300$ and they repeat within 0.001mm if you use the same touch direction.

    It is complemented with a...

    Why not test it on another test article first?...

    Why not test it on another test article first? 10K spindle will tap M16 holes to structural steel, but probably not in 4140. You might possibly have to run it at higher RPM than suggested by...

    There is a lot of archived talk about side loads being dangerous with BT30 (likely in combination of pulling forces with angled flutes?). I have liked the performance of 1½ 90degree 4-insert shell...

    I suggest when you have spare time, take out the switching power supply and check out the internals visually. Capacitors most likely are starting to leak (or bulge) and it can lead to catastrophic...

    The machine has some calibration routines available and i use those values currently for corner probing. But the measuring is done bit differently on the calibration process so it most likely does...

    Another head scratcher. If i remove tool length compensation with G49 or G43H0, this will result in the movement of Z axis towards the new position which is Z - Compensation! This crashed my probe in...

    I removed my Brothers ancient and corroded fluorescent tube housing and replaced it with a regular outlet (NOT inside the enclosure). This source has 110V output with safety isolation (= good), but...

    Thanks, i tried it again with refreshed mind and it works as supposed. There might have been some mix up with work offsets (where X Y was located). So the incremental moves are rotated just as the...

    There is no dedicated thread for small G-code questions, so i post one here:

    I have been playing around with G68 coordinate rotation and having some troubles with incremental moves (done under...

    I found the mapping of correct input from manuals, which lay next to the tool brakage detection specific inputs.

    Tool detection connection is CNTOOL at the left top side of extension board. Looks...
  12. Brother TC-S2B tool length auto measure device

    Hi,

    I tried to install a generic tool length measurement sensor to this old CNC mill, but ran into problems with the routines attempting to open the device pneumatic cover (which does not exist)...

    I think all CNC lathes need to have pre-meditated move command before the tool change?

    (TC-S2B Brother 2004 small cnc mill) Thanks for the tips, so probably not software related.

    It suddenly occured to me that the tool might be suspect and it was. You get what you pay for..:) The...
  15. Problem, toolpaths deviate for every direction change

    Hi,

    I have run into strange issue with TC2-SB. The toolpath inches inward slightly and uniformly as if it would be doing a spiral shape. The deviation is less than my micrometer can measure but...

    Overrun can be jogged with reset and relse button pressed down, just make sure to rotate in correct direction.

    Yes, thats how it should do it but this one does finishing pass to the final contour dimensions. It has the preparatory smoothing operation too. This is stated in the manual, but to me it kinda...

    Strange G71 behaviour

    Hi,

    I have old chinese CNC lathe (Washing 320Ti, early 2000) and it has peculiar G-code adoptations (manual is available, but does not offer detailed insight). Particularly strange is G71 without...

    Seems like the HSM express is free plugin, thanks. Probably very limited in that state, but its better than nothing.

    Thanks for the link, i will definetly use those safety features.
    I thought that post processing meant preparing and correcting syntax to fit the particular machine (simple text replacement or...

    I am not promoting anything, the deal raised my interest in that seemingly popular product. I do not own fusion licence or the software atm, i have INVENTOR licence which was VERY expensive 5 years...

    G-code is horrible to read and write, coupled with very loose implementations. Like some commands require decimals and others are offset numbers (input values in thousands). Seems like 1970 there was...

    Thanks to you all, i also received some sample code from Brotherfrank for my particular machine. I am going to refrain myself from milling and get familiar with lathe first in order to get better in...
