    Just a small update on the MC800H:

    The pallet changer tapered pin gripper unit actuator pins, or at least that's what I'm calling them, are now being remade. I had some Thomson 60 case ground...

    I have run 20,000+ lb CNC mills from my home shop for over 10 years now. You asked for advice so don't be offended if most if not all of what I'm suggesting is well within your existing realm of...

    Thanks for your feedback Mark (2x)

    I'll explain why the Uberchuck damages the carousel in my next post.

    I'll be readdressing the CPU subject soon but for now the focus is on other parts of these machines.

    Thanks Aaron for your prompt feedback on this,

    My understanding is that the Kingston 486 upgrade kit that uses the AMD 5x86 processor works quite well with the VME board, that has been done and...

    MC800H (Maho Sr.): This machine has been getting far more time and money lately than I probably should be giving it.

    Hi Garwood,

    I hear you on repacking as a process, I've repacked many blocks and nuts just not with new balls, just cleaned ones. I can see how wear would be low on the balls since they are so...

    All machines use inductive braking but not all systems will convert that DC back into AC and then the grid. Old Fanucs did not have common DC buses between drives and would use resistors to bleed off...

    Fans arrived today. Most of them are for the SL-6 as mentioned before. Only the really large fans will be rebuilt rather than replaced, due to the cost of bearings to entire fan ratio. The smaller...

    Hi Garwood, I'm glad my experience helped you with your choice for a desoldering gun replacement. I've used mine a whole bunch since my last post and although I did have some problems due to my...
