Title: How to count spindle turns Mach 3 Lathe
Post by: spiyda on January 25, 2016, 07:46:26 PM
Mach3 question Can someone explain to me how I would go about displaying the number of rotations of the spindle.

I need to count the number of turns of the chuck when rotating the chuck of my lathe by hand.

I fitted a spindle indexer that works fine when threading, just don't know how to make it count / reset etc.

I've seen PBear do it with a brain.

I did similar but don't go too fast.

Put a dro and button on your screen.
