The first reply to this topic holds the latest version s a .zip file

I have not made any changes in some time, but I nearly have my lathe running again after tearing it apart to add an Ethernet smoothstepper. I have a number of ideas for improvement that I hope to work on soon. I am also looking at converting this to a mach4 lua wizard, which is why I need the ESS.

The included thread table is just a short sample. You are expected to edit the table- a simple text file- to contain the threads you use. Both metric and english should work. There is a help file with details.

See if the Keyway slot does a better job for you. It does have fully rounded ends, and it will do a .500 wide with a .250 tool. It uses a ramp in start on a straight line down the center of the slot.

Ill add it to my list, seems like good ideas.

Actually the issue is the circular ramp in which we set to be a ramp of radius equal to tool diameter. I am not really sure how we arrived at that number, but Brian picked it and it works cleanly. I suppose the code could check to see if a plunge cut is requested then allow the smaaller pocket.

No, it is that way by design. You cannot cut a clean pocket if the tool is exactly twice the pocket, At least not with the toolpath I use.

Either ask for a .501 pocket, or tell it the mill is .249

Ok, that did it. Latest versions of mach and pokeys, my panel works fine now.

Thanks for all the help.

i believe I do not have the correct plugin for mach. This is an old pokey55- ser no 10804. If I load the 56u files I can communicate with the device via the pokey ap. I have cleared the config and re-loaded with an import. Using the pokeys ap everything seems normal, but I cannot get it to work under mach.

This is a pokey55 and the config screen does not have a Status IO tab. If I use the Pokey55 program it does show the signals changing.

Under Mach when I open the config menu the pins show up as I expect, but the Apply button never enables. If I make a change in the pins it still does not enable.

I think I do not have real communication to the device. I have tried add and remove from the Plugins Config with no change.

One more problem. I got the panel working fine on my desk machine, so I tried to move it to my shop XP machine. I had some trouble finding the correct xml, but I think I have it now. I have the plugin enabled. the config screen shows all the pins I have setup. But none of them actually work.

If I run the pokeys application the test screen shows all the inputs change as expected.

Any suggestions?
