    Nice, do you get to work with the garage door open?

    Define "protective". I tested some 6061 parts I make with a gold chromate finish and found it scratches easily, IMO. Brought back memories of some 6061 parts we had to clear chromate many years ago...

    It looks like a lot of walking to service each machine, how long are your normal cycle times? At least for the VF2s. My shop is 14'x19' so I don't have your problems, no matter what there isn't...

    My machine just alarmed out while it was sitting between cycles. All of the alarms on the control display are the same listed in my first post. I checked the drive and have an Alarm-10, which is a...

    If I was making the fixtures or programing then that would be different. Loading parts into fixtures, setting fixtures in place, etc for hours, a beer does ease the monotony some. And damn do the...

    It is a Dongan 85-M050 which is 1.5 kva 24v. I bought it from PP when I bought the phase converter so they sized it.

    The Enshu is a 5hp spindle and draws a bit less total load than the Kitamura, I have always wondered if it would handle both at the same time. But, not gona try it to find out the hard way. Too...

    As I said earlier I have never had any issues with power in my shop. I have often had the Kitamura running production while I go back and run a small 3ph lathe with never an issue. I suspect the...

    Loose abrasive on a flat plate works best for resin bond stones. What abrasive depends on the resin and size of the diamond crystals. It removes the contamination and better exposes the diamond.

    Well, I can't get the spindle drive to fault and shut everything down but I am getting a 1005 machine alarm that is: Thermal Trip (power panel) oil cooler is abnormal, Inverter is abnormal. Method...

    A 2004 PP 10hp with new caps. I don't think this is a new problem and my other mill is an older Yaskawa controlled one that runs fine.

    Not to be presumptuous but here is the link to the drive...

    Ok, I have the spindle drive users manual open. None of the motor faults with corrective action sound like what I have. I have the inverter and converter alarm tables open and will get the machine...

    You guys did read the part of files not wheels right? It would be good to know what they are contaminated with too.

    Probably have but know where it is if I haven't, and didn't think about that, thanks!
  15. 15k spindle motor alarms out above 10k, especially when changing it with the overide

    It is a 10hp 15k Yaskawa with a lot of hours on it. It is a 2001 that supposedly ran 24/365 for 10 years before I bought it in 2013. The spindle inverter, a VS-626M5, was repaired in 2012 but I...

    Are they all plated single layer or resin bond?

    Perhaps use them to dress some Sic or Alox stones flat?

    I figured $2500 for a CPU is probably a deal killer anyway so more of a response to Intel coming out with CPUs with higher core counts.

    If Mastercam can use processing resources from other...

    Those benchmarks really show AMD is way ahead of Intel. If you look into more details than the core performance then AMD just comes out further ahead.

    Intel needs to come out with some better...

    WD40 works really well to remove the caked oil from cooler fins, I had a spindle cooler that had no air getting through the fins. Spray it on, brush it carefully, vacuum it out, repeat a few times.

    It looks like your CPU is maxed out and depending on how good your cooler is that could be holding it back if your CPU is getting over 60C. I doubt faster ram would make a measurable difference,...

    Perhaps reseat the comm card in the control? Easy and safe to do, just make sure the power is off, don't touch any traces or wear a ground strap for safety. If you see any oxidation on the...

    Depending on how many holes you need to make I would just use a HSS drill and go for it with a high feed rate if it's not too many. Type III anodize will be hard on any tool, even carbide, so that...
