Looks great Dave nice to see you have joined the 4th axis club , this will put a whole new level to your machining , I have also taken my rotary table apart to see the mechanics and have virtualy worked all the backlash out , extreemly tight unit now . I have made my remote control boats ( motors ) some really cool water jackets

General Mach Discussion / Re: Screen resolution
« on: December 19, 2008, 03:44:14 AM »
You da man Hood , the auto screen button did the trick , problem was because of the resolution I could not see or get at the reset button to get things rolling let alone get at any other bottom buttons on all screens . Its the reset button that I am curious about is there a key that represents it or is it only accessible with the mouse

General Mach Discussion / Screen resolution
« on: December 18, 2008, 01:58:47 PM »
I just bought a new dell 9inch laptop . is there any way to change mach3's resolution on this laptop since max resolution is only 1024 x 600 and not the regular 1024 x 768 ........ ???

Is there a button or key that controls the E-stop instead of activating it by mouse

This will only be for creating G-code when not at home

Any suggestions are most welcome and thank you

Thank you all for the nice comments

Budman....The motor was bought from Princess Auto they specialize in surplus items of all kinds , it is a 1.5hp treadmill motor with permanent magnets inside hence having to use a bridge rectifier to change the AC current to DC . As far as wiring the motors posative and neg go to the rectifier's pos + neg terminals and from there the AC goes to the variable router speed control you see on the wall in the vid which uses 120volts household current . The motors output rpm is about 6500 at 120 volts.....torque I don't know but it has gobs . the motor is a little lighter than the standard taig 1/4 hp supplied or around 5-7 lbs . I had the motors casing chromed to give it more sex appeal . If you notice there is a small motor/generator to the right of the main motor , that supplies 7volts at every 1000rpm so the pully machined for this has been reduced so that it will read on a digital volt meter 10.00 volts when the spindal is at 1000rpm or 65volts at 6500rpm . I ordered a nice little volt meter from ebay and will install it on the taig when it gets here

Being that we both have Taigs I usually check to see if you have made some more interesting upgrades to yours also , I to enjoy very much checking out your fine workmanship

General Mach Discussion / Re: Desktop verses laptop

The only time that will come up is if I go into the config editor and try to access port and pins everything else is accessable - other than that since I over wrote the new install with the mach3 system from the laptop everything is as it was on the laptop , works beautifully and much smoother , and I did the reboot . Its no big deal since everything still functions at 100% but was curious if Art can shed some light on this one

Is it just my imagination or does a desktop system just work better , everything went great upgrading from my laptop to desktop including importing all the settings but when I try to access the pins settings In the config menu I get this warning..... ???
