Like your solution! Especially the fact it turned out relatively inexpensive. There are such heads ready available, but are very expensive.

By the way, don't see a reason for preloading the bearings if all it's going to is drilling. I think there would be much more backlash in the gears that could be a problem for rigid tapping.

OK, I see now. Thanks. Although I would have to check to be sure, but I think I could get here a Delta PLC for at least half that price.

Hi Hood,

Have a question for you. I know you usually use PLCs on your machines. So it made me wonder why were you after a controller with lots of I/O and being 24V? Wouldn't an ESS/PLC combination make up a much cheaper solution? And possibly lots more I/O?

Cabinet looks neat. What are the drives you're using?

By the way, don't think you got any room left for another drive...

That's good, Hood. Still want to see what you'll have to say about the threading.

Sounds very good so far. I like very much the way you say the plugin works and the ease of setup there.

Thanks for posting the feedback. Waiting forward to seeing how it works in actual life.

Looks good! Offsets and programming should be easier than what you've done so far Smiley

LOL... Hood said "Not familiar with VFDs" and somehow in your quote it appeared as "Not familiar with DVDs" Wink

Ah... that's a shame. Somehow I missed that part.
