General Mach Discussion / peck clearance height
« on: March 15, 2016, 09:48:34 PM »
i've never noticed before but tonight when i wrote a basic g83 program (g83 x 3 y 4 r.05 z-.575 q.05 f3) it rapids to .05, does a peck and retracts to .05 then up to .25
it is leaving about 1/4 inch before it starts redrilling after each peck. it cuts more air than material.  g98, g99, g73, g73 pullback...nothing matters

any help on this?

General Mach Discussion / Lathe Spindle Speed Control
« on: August 30, 2012, 10:14:03 AM »
I'm new to this forum.
I'm in Yahoo and have used MACH for years now.
I'm fixing up a Hardinge lathe fo CNC.
I have changed many machines but on this one I want variable speed with the work diameter.
I how know the PWM  works but it's not as straight forward as that.
The Hardinge has a variable "V" belt spindle drive like a Bridgeport mill.
There is a 575 VAC 3 phase motor driving the screw that changes the position of the variable pulleys.
I can change the 3 PH motor to a DC motor with gears, belt, whatever
Is there a way to compare RPM with the adjusting screw location?
I've been looking and I have found nothing about a variable speed spindle compared to work piece diameter.
Any help would be appreciated.

If this is enabled does it make mach3 work the motors directly with the encoder inputs?
How do I enable this?
