  1. Don't mess with the speed sensor gap if it is...

    Don't mess with the speed sensor gap if it is .005" to .007" give or take a thou. Don't use a metal feeler gage, use plastic to check as not to damage the face of the sensor. It's a pretty small...

  3. I was hoping you would see this and reply. I...

    I was hoping you would see this and reply. I agree it was probably corruption on power up but I didn't get all of the necessary information or details to troubleshoot. This customer stays on top of...
  4. Fanuc 18T P/S 009 Alarm "Illegal address input"

    I had a customer that called yesterday who was getting a P/S 009 alarm on a Hardinge Conquest lathe with a Fanuc 18T every time they tried to run a program. I think the alarm said "Illegal address...

    I'll be following this thread as I have two Clausing 5914 lathes. One I use almost every day and one I have completely dis-assembled waiting to restore. I never even considered scraping the flame...

    When you get to this point I have a cylinder square like John posted above. Not sure where you are in Ontario but if you want to make the trip to Michigan you can borrow this or buy it for $250. I am...

    Does the x-axis have an external brake or is it in the servo motor?
  8. I like the Hardinge GX series mills but would...

    I like the Hardinge GX series mills but would rather have a Fanuc on one like most of the other Hardinge customers. I have a customer with 4 of the exact machines and they have been very reliable....

    That would be to keep contamination out. I think this has greased spindle bearings.

    Disregard the above post about parameter 4077 as this machine uses a special Varispeed spindle drive, not a Fanuc. Refer to section 4D18 of the maintenance manual to tune M19.
  12. The spindle orient parameter is 4077 and there...

    The spindle orient parameter is 4077 and there are 4096 pulses in 360 degrees. It may be loose or worn spindle belts.
  13. The "pmcdiag" button is next to the "pmclad"...

    The "pmcdiag" button is next to the "pmclad" softkey. Then hit "status", type "x", then "search" softkey. Then look at the inputs that I posted above. You should also verify that the z-axis is going...

    There is a good chance the muffler is just plugged up not letting the air escape on the other side of the piston. I'm surprised that the dirt bike trip didn't fix it. :)

    Edit: It looks like there...

    I believe these had a Fanuc 21i control? I would re-seat the input module for the tool change switches and the output module in slot 10. Are the inputs working? X5.4 should be on and X5.5 should be...

    One sure sign that a mill is worn is the x-axis gib sticking out the right side. A mill with little wear the gib will be almost flush on the left side. It is also easy to pull the gib out to see if...

    Hi Matt, you are correct about the location of the torque limiter. You will need to remove the cover under the servo motor and the lube block package (a couple bolts and let it hang) to access the...

    Is this a hard turn operation? Does the turret index or is the same tool cutting both diameters? If hard turn I would monitor the incoming stock size fluctuations. If the turret indexes between the...

    I don't know what I was thinking when I sent you those files, I must have been half asleep. I was thinking this was a Doosan or Daewoo. That's what I sent the file for. I probably have a procedure...

    If you have to re-align the cam I believe you can change K0.6 to a "1" and then you can use the single block switch to move the air cylinder in and out. Let me know if you want the procedure. Daryl

    I believe the parameter for the live tool spindle is 4077 S2, but it could be S3. However, it sounds like you may have slipped the taper lock on the drive when the drill stopped spinning. The detent...

    And then you will need a way to check your granite plates etc, and so on, lol. It just evolves on it's own. :)

    You don't know how to scrape but you want to design your own straightedge? I think you are getting the cart before the horse so to speak. If you are serious about learning to rebuild equipment and...

    You are describing chatter, so what's moving? All of the replies are good ones to check before replacing spindle bearings. That is a box way machine so you need to adjust all of the gibs on every...

    You come on here looking for business then you say something stupid like that? Translate this, GFY!
