General Mach Discussion / Threading problem?
« on: April 08, 2015, 12:47:40 AM »
Hello all,

 I've seem to hit a bump in the road. I've been using mach 3 for quite some time now and am now starting to do threading I went through all the literature for mach3 turn for threading. to do 32 TPI.  However: when I post the code there's a red line that my machine follows. I thought that red line was homing or start point, is this correct? I have posted a pic any help would be much appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / lathe motor conversion?
« on: March 05, 2015, 09:22:30 PM »
I have a sherline 4000 lathe CNC, 36v power supply , C10 board, 2 keling KL-4030 stepper drivers , 2 150oz stepper motors and of course mach3, everything works great. However: I want to get rid of my lathe motor and replace it with a nema 23 DC servo, timing belt and pulley's to be able to do threading and turning. Is this possible to just add this to what I have, or do I need to get a whole new set-up? I've asked around online with no answers.

General Mach Discussion / MAC ANYONE!

Sorry to ask but......Has anyone used a MAC with parallels running XP, and USB Parallel adaptor running CNC? I have it as an emulator but haven't been able to get the motors turning.

I have very musty, humid garage and now on 2nd old XP computer >:(. I would just like to take a laptop out to the garage when needed. 

General Mach Discussion / 2 machines?
« on: August 09, 2013, 04:25:06 PM »
I have mach3 licensed with a sherline lathe, 2 kelling 4030, and 2 425 oz motors everything works great and couldn't be happier. Also: I have a sherline 5400 CNC ready mill with no motors or micro steppers at all. However: the X,Y, Z screws are all 20 TPI. My question is can I just get 1 more 425oz motor and another kelling 4030 leave the new one hooked up to my mill, and use my other stuff from my lathe and place them on my mill?

Hello All, I'am new
    I got everything moving, made a simple cut GCODE on in mach turn with the wizard, Have my part placed in chuck, and part zeroed to placement ....and movement but no cut. However: I do see that the DRO's are way off. Just trying to do a simple cut..VERY SIMPLE. I'm running DEMO so that might be the problem, or the Steps per under motor turn....I have them set to 8000 did I do the math wrong?

SHerline 4000 lathe 20 TPI
KL4030 microsteppers set at 1/8th 200

Any help would be much appreciated.
