General Mach Discussion / Re: Setting up axis A for rotary table
« on: October 11, 2010, 02:22:14 AM »
Thanks for the help.
I successfully milled my job using the Faking 4th Axis technique that I found on Carter Tools site.
Still have to figure out how to set up the hot keys for jogging the axis.
Take care,
Jon

General Mach Discussion / Setting up axis A for rotary table
« on: October 09, 2010, 05:57:43 PM »
Hi,
I have a Sherline 4" rotary table for my CNC Taig mill. I mostly use the mill for wooden flute making, and restoration of antique flutes, but also do other small milling jobs.
I have a couple of  questions;
1. What are the jog keys for the A axis?
2. I would like to use the table as both degree and also have the option to run it by linking it to the Y axis, so I can draw it in 2D. Is that possible?
Take care,
Jon

Hi,
My name is Jon, I have been using Mach 3 for about 4 years. I have a CMC Taig mill that I bought on eBay. I mostly use it for wooden fltue making and retoring antique flutes. I finely broke down and got a decent contoller, getting a Gecko g540, the controller is put together by Deep Groove. Wow, what an improvment form the junk I was was using before, I had to keep replacing the chip on the old driver... Now I can use my A axis rotary talble.
