    As far as I'm concerned ever since CNCs started being equipped with CRTs they all have been pretty easy to use regardless of...

    As long as you are careful to not cut any cables, not drill into anything inside the cabinet, and also make sure no chips drop into circuit boards etc you should be fine.

    OUCH! >$16k in a 20 year old VF0?

    Where did you get the Z linear guides? If you got them from a source other than Haas, are you sure you got the correct preload grade?

    Same question for the...

    When I was looking for a home shop machine, I had to choose between an RMC55 and the 30 taper Mori TV30. I am really glad to have gone with the Mori because of the toolchanger and full enclosure. ...

    If there is a variable that can be changed it will most likely be a PMC parameter defined by Mori's ladder. Does any of your Mori documentation list this alarm? If not, or you do not have the...

    The EX alarms are Mori specific so you will need to look at the Mori alarm list. On a machine that vintage, the alarms may be in a Mori operation manual, but there should be a listing in the back of...

    I don't have any manuals for the 3 series control. Some of the old Fanucs like the 6 and 11 had a device called Input Unit. This is where the power on/off buttons connected. Relay 1 in those would...

    This is what I was wondering too. The lathes at the auto industry supplier I did some service work at would often have a boring bar type tool with 3 inserts so they could machine all the features on...

    I have never worked on a 15 with the remote buffer board. I'll try to look that up and see what it may possibly be used for.
