General Mach Discussion / mapping joystick buttons
« on: June 24, 2009, 09:18:39 PM »
 Hello All

 I am setting up a logitech joystick/ gamepad and have most of the buttons assigned that I
want to  use, but I am trying to get use of the jog mode and jog cycle step off of the tab flyout
screen. I am using the keygrabber software and when I open the screen set with screen designer
I find only the oem codes and no keystrokes assigned to these buttons.

 Thanks Rick :)

Hey Guys
 I have been working on this for awhile now,1986 supermax mill,originally head had 5 '' of quill travel and was totaly worn out.
So I decided to change it around so I will have 15'' of travel andtrread mill motor run by Mach3 as a spindle drive. Still haave some
more parts to make ,but this is waht I have assembled so far laying on the table.When I get it mounted on the mill I will post some
more pics.


General Mach Discussion / step and direction spindle

Hello All
I am redoing the head on a supermax mill and I am using the uhu servo drives and a 2 1/2
treadmill motor for spindle drive.Just playing around with it I cannot get the spindle to operate
correctly with latest ver of mach3.I have a 360 count encoder which works out 1440 steps per rev,
but I am using the step multiplier on the drive to bring it back to 360 steps per rev.I first set it up as
the z axis to check for correct steps per rev and all worked fine,but when set up as the spindle I have
to set the steps to 1440 in order to get it close to running correct speed.I just set rpm to 60 and count
how many revs in a minute and I am getting around 48.As I understand it steps shold be steps per rev
and vel. max revs per second .

Any suggestions?

Thanks Rick
