    You're not going to get anything that's close to "state of the art" but, I make very good parts on 30+ year old CNCs and they still have lots of life left in them.

    I used plain old Trim-Sol for years. I switched to Zurn Aqua Sol 280 because of price, and it's worked well so far. Years ago, I ran full synthetic from Monroe - it lasted but didn't have the...

    Depending on parameter settings, the Fanuc could be reading the the feedrate as "F.0002" per rev or per minute. You may want to use a decimal (I always taught this in class)with the feed. "F.002" and...

    There are some who are just sooo cheap. I visited a shop once, and it was barely above freeing inside. Owner was complaining of part tolerances going all over the lot during the course of a day. He...

    Give Darryl Hardt a call. He's Doosan (Daewoo) service and VERY knowledgeable on this. Sounds like a keeper relay to me, but I'm just guessing. You can reach him at the HQ office in Pine Brook, NJ.

    OK, there's a few things you could do.

    On the Fanuc side of things there are parameters that control the C axis origin for both main and sub. when phase synch-ing the spindles if these are off,...

    EXACTLY what I was thinking. Many years ago, dad bought a Chinese CNC. It was "ok" for the first 2-3 years, then, quite literally, it fell apart. Oil lines that were supposed to feed ball screws, and...

    For turning I tend to go either Sandvik or Kennametal. Lately Sandvik.

    Your DNM can handle it, but the issue is that you can't go too slow or the spindle will stall. The DNM series of VMCs are roller guideway machines and the last I checked, the only geared head spindle...

    Sounds like someone was monkey-ing with the ladders or something. I have several OLD VMC's with Fanuc 11M controllers and none of them do that.

    First, if your 10T is using G code system A, it's G98 for IPM and G99 for IPR. Second, some machines have an M code for axis feed with spindle not running. You may want to check your list.

    All will make money.
    Of the three mentioned, I'd go Mazak. Excellent support, parts and service. A good heavy machine. Nothing wrong with the others, just preference.

    When I worked for a MTB I remember hearing of some pretty impressive invoices because the documentation was lost, no backups, and the distributor that sold the machine was long gone as well.

    You can back up your PC parameters, and other data manually, that is by writing them down. That's what I did but my machine is VERY old. On newer (2011 and later) Fanuc cncs you can back up things...

    When I taught the classes, I always hammered it to the customers to back up their machine parameters as soon as they got back to their respective shops. Well, I'm sure glad I took my own advice! My...
