    Your budget means used, and old used, and probably limited to ebay. Very few dealers are going to have anything in that price bracket.

    There are some not terrible options though, but there are...

    I don't think you'll regret doing so. Once you wrap your head around relational databases, you'll find yourself using them for everything.

    Thanks, yes the thread was a good while ago! I've been using that successfully on that machine since then with no significant problems - I found the torque value sometimes needs tweaking to get it to...

    I don't mind saying that as an active subscriber of several autodesk products, the people that I've dealt with at AD have been consistently helpful and friendly. I don't think your experience was...

    No M code on the machine I use this on, discussed it a few times on here before. I posted a rough draft of my method in this thread - I've refined it since then, rolled it into a macro and assigned a...

    Can only speak for myself, but that's how I do it - retract with torque skip, then check the position to see if it got to where it was going.

    How much grease are you putting in them? Over packing will make the bearings heat up.

    If the bearings have adjustable preload (unlikely on a live tool) make sure they are not adjusted too tight.

    I will have to acquire a humidity meter, don't have one on hand.

    Regarding actual requirements - I have no idea. I don't know who specified this dryer, or why. I can't find any paperwork for it...

    Yes, twin tower regen.

    I am not the end user of this air circuit and diplomatically, the guys that are are not the type to notice or consider if there is something wrong with it.

    We use T9215 in TM geometry, basically the newest revision of what you used. Performs very well in H1150 and H900.

    I don't really recommend stainless geometry inserts for 17-4 unless you're...

    When I was working for my dad learning the ropes about 15 years ago, we bought a U4 that had been removed from a power plant maintenance shop. Although probably half a century old, it was practically...

    Desiccant air dryer cycle frequency

    I am completely unfamiliar with desiccant dryers, even though we have had one running in our plasma air circuit for the last 8 years or so.

    It's a Domnick Hunter DME series, although I am not sure...

    I had never heard of this book before I read this thread, but wanting to learn more myself I also ordered it and it arrived yesterday.

    While well written and presented, with plenty of good quality...

    I don't know enough about light sources and their uses in this context to offer an opinion on that, but the mechanics of this are kind of intriguing.

    I really don't know how it's possible to...

    Are both spindles "C" on your machine? Not sure about that...

    On mine the sub spindle is the A axis in rotary mode, so I can just zero it in the ext. offset.

    I didn't say you ignored it, I said you chose not to heed it. Two different things.

    IIRC your original question was effectively "Please share with me the fruits of your labours". While someone may...

    Generic Default, the guy behind the swissmak debacle, which for reasons that I can only put down to morbid curiosity appears to be of great interest to this forum.

    Sounds like a good result, but it seems strange that the previous owner would have limited the pressure at the pump rather than at the actuator valve. Maybe there were safety concerns with the old...

    I'm not really clear on what you mean.

    If they are bevelled, there are surfaces. If they are radiused, then axial parallelism plays a role. If they are knife edged, then parallelism and overlap,...

    In fairness, you've already resolved to waive everyone's advice anyway. What else do you hope to gain from this thread?

    I work mainly in C++ but am competent in JS, and swift to a lesser extent. I studied computer science but made a career in manufacturing.

    Those lathes will almost certainly have different chucks and chuck actuators.

    Get the manuals for them. Work backwards from the chuck; max. allowable actuation force of the chuck > pressure...

    We are talking about a basic plunger type dial indicator that is very high resolution and short travel? I assumed that because that is what Matthew appears to be using in his video.

    If so, yes I...

    I've been through this not too long ago on one of ours, never got round to actually fixing it, but IIRC parameter 4034 is in encoder pulses, not degrees.

    Also IIRC, 4035 is to do with speed...
