If you had Input #1 controlling something else which you wouldn't expect to get triggered while using the plugin it could get not pleasant.

Funny thing is, I had been using the plugin via Output1 active low.

That's funny indeed, Greg Grin Looks like a serious bug though.

It's getting heavy so moving it around the shop is getting a serious task Wink

Brian has just found the problem. It has to do with the latest fix to softlimits he did. You will see normal preview unless your work coordinates are zeroed way off the machine zero. Preview seems to follow machine zero.

Hopefully will get fixed soon Wink .

Hood,

Thought you wanted to do away with the two turret setup?

I am wondering if I could fit this disc to that turret  temporarily  until I get the new one made, will measure tomorrow and see. Reprogramming the PLC and the indexing drive would not be an issue but whether it will be worth it I am not sure.

Why might it not work for you? I mean if all fits, why would it be temporary?

Phone is just a cheapo but suppose even the cheap ones nowadays have half decent cameras, think though the second pic was more to do with the light under the head of the mill making it look a bit fuzzy.

My apologies then Smiley

Hood,

Are you using the Beaver's servo spindle for tapping the holes?

By the way, you've got a good phone, but looks like your shaky hand spoiled the second picture Grin

Ah... so this is the little fellow who's been helping you around Grin Looks like he works night shifts Wink

Good progress on the turret. Thought it'd take months till you get there, but looks like it's a matter of weeks.

Will it be pneumatics or hydraulics pushing the coupling? I have always been doubting the stability of such couplings under load. It's always looked to me like if the spring pulling it is not sufficiently stiff then the coupling halves would slip against each other. Would you please comment?

New Q about the ESS: does the new board have the same annoying ultra persistent, un dismissable error splash screens as the USB version? That in itself would be reason enough to avoid it, in my view. 

Don't think it's a board related thing, but rather a plugin one. I know what you mean and it used to happen quite often here with the previous plugins. With the latest one, this messages got very, very rare and still haven't had those you call in-dissmisible. This is with a USB board.
