General Mach Discussion / Motor ratings for dyna 3000 lathe

Does anybody know the stepper volts/amps for all three steppers on a dyna lathe, they aren't printed on there. Thanks

I know a few people have done these. There was one on ebay not to long ago that mentioned the folks from mach3 gave him the toolchange macro for the lathe. Any help?

I am in a dilema, I have the lathe, and it has most of the boards, but none of them are wired up. My original intentions were to just use the original drives and a campbell breakout board that I have on hand. That went out when I found out nothing was hooked up. Anybody know what kind of performance I would get hooking it up to say a xylotex setup? My other option is gut it and use some pittmans and geckos.

How do I control the spindle motor on this lathe, should I scrap it as well? Anybody ever got its spindle encoder working with any of these drives/mach3?

Thanks for any help.

General Mach Discussion / Steps per inch

Having trouble getting the steps per in setup correctly. I had them setup as 10000, but everything comes out a little off. Backlash is fine. 1.8 degree stepper motors coupled directly. I am using gecko 201s, I have no idea what the ballscrews are though. If I calculate the steps using the setup wizard, it comes to different numbers on the x and y axis. I get some strange numbers like 10049.97937493. Any help? What is the proper procedure for checking backlash? Any other hints?
