I really hopre this doesn't die, perhaps the lack of interest just reflects the time of year? People on holidays etc.

What a nice result! I cant take all of the credit, my knowledge has been gleaned from a variety of sources, and people on this forum such as Jeff Birt and others have spent a lot of time testing and finding solutions for electrical noise problems, but thanks for the compliments anyway.
I'll look forward to the flowers, it will brighten up the workshop :)

Cheers

That was only one question  ;) The answer is that it travels both in the air and down the cable, but the noise in the cables is usually what affects sensitive devices. Try reading some of the posts on smoothstepper electrical noise issues, since the solutions to those problems should help your noise issues as well.

You can buy an emi filter and put it on the AC input side of the VFD (not between the vfd and the motor). I got one from ebay. Use shielded cables for all signal lines and only earth one end of the shield, so that it acts like a faraday cage.

Just search this forum for emi and electrical noise, or google if you want, there is a mass of info out there.

I dont think this is related to the plugin itself, but rather the VFD is causing electrical noise which is freezing Mach3. Are you using a smoothstepper by any chance? These are very sensitive to noise.

Hi Rich, where are all these existing wizards? Would it be worthwhile collating them into one location, then they could be tested / researched, to see what we already have.
Perhaps someone could act as a project manager and assign testing tasks, milestones and  goals to individuals?

Cheers

Hi Phil,
You have already implemented a lot of the things that I would have liked to see in the lathe screens. Is there a chance you could post your latest screenset?

Cheers

I would be more than happy to test things as well as to provide feedback and encouragement for this endeavour. I am not sure if I could contribute anything concrete, but you never know I am slowly learning.
Cheers

Hi again, I hope you had a good Xmas, playing with the lathe again today, I accidentally ran a wizard generated gcode file without inputting a spindle speed... duh!
It would be great if all the wizards had a mandatory spindle speed field as well as tool numbers.

Cheers
Dave
