    Thanks for the replies.

    I couldn't find anything in the manual regarding "locking" the spindle. M19 does "orient" the spindle for tool changes but it does not hold the spindle in a fixed...
  2. Is there a code to lock the spindle on VMC? Yasnac-MX3

    Like the title says, I'm wondering if anyone knows if I can lock the spindle rotation in a certain position on my Kitamura VMC with a Yasnac MX3 control.

    Thanks,

    The centrical switch was replaced about 4 years ago so I suspect it is OK.

    I have a good ohm meter but it doesn't measure microfareds. How would I go about checking them?

    Will bad start capacitor blow fuse?

    Air compressor went down and is blowing 30A slow-blow fuses. I've checked for a short and there is not any continuity between the line in and motor case. Pump and motor turn freely. It's a big...

    Thanks for the reply. That is a clever way of doing things.

    I guess my biggest concern was somehow throwing the balance between the 3 legs off and messing up my CNC. I don't think it would be a...

    Have an American Rotary AD-20 supplying a 3-phase sub panel for the shop. Will using 2 of the legs from the sub panel to power a single phase 240v grinder cause any issues with the balance between...

    Yeah... The tolerance is not an issue. I found another company that has a much better price: Socket Head Shoulder Screw | Hex Head Shoulder Screw. Worst case I turn the head down myself but I plan...

    I've tried searching for that and I'm having trouble finding one "off-the-shelf". My guess is that it will have to be custom given the...
  14. Can anyone recommend source for miniature, (2-56), threaded dowel pin?

    Looking for a US-based source for small threaded dowel pins. Ideal would be a 3/32 pin, OAL 0.625 which would include ~0.125 of the end threaded to 2-56 and the opposite end slotted.

    Worst case...

    My thoughts exactly. I didn't think a Kitamura Mycenter-0 was an exceedingly rare machine. That's why I thought someone might already have gone through this.

    After scouring the net and coming up empty, I checked with Hawk Ridge for a price....$750 for a custom post processor which seems crazy to me when Fusion 360 if free works fine. Is that typical? ...

    My control is a Yasnac MX3. SW does have a Yasnac post processor that I can try. Its just that I ran into some minor kinks that I had to work out when using Fusion's Yasnac processor and was hoping...
  21. How do I convert Fusion post processor to use in Solidworks.

    I'm just starting to play with the Solidworks CAM package that comes with SW2018 and would like to use the post processor that I have been using for Fusion 360. Is there an easy way to convert them?...

    Thanks for the reply.

    I realize they are completely different alloys. Maybe I should simply ask which grade of stainless is the most malleable?
