Hi Dennis

Try this one with a .48 per pass value rough and LCam Turn final pass.


Hi, Scrappy

Have a servo driven small robotic arm I'm converting to step & direction and Mach3, Did you get your View screen situation worked out.

Hi, Art, Dennis

It looks as if it's not liking the 0.5 value.
Hears a test dxf and some pic's and a tap file.


Edit: .49 drop's a pass left side at Arrow, .48 pick's it back up, Both sides of the part are the same dia. "10" unit's from X zero. ?

Hi, Monty

Making a new disk is the way to go as suggested above.

On my Emco Comp. 5 lathe, I used the existing OPTO sensor/pickup, Only needed to add a current limiting resistor to power the OPTO sensor properly.

Original Disk was about 5 inch in dia., With the single slot width being about a 1/4 inch, Increased it to 7/8 inch and It's good to 4000 rpm.

Mach3 just need's additional time/width to see the change of State of the OPTO sensor at your max spindle speed.

Nice looking Lathe, You haft'a do what you haft'a do to u-load these machine's.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, RC

Your dxf works on ver prior to 12 23 08, But I get a 406 error on latest version no mater what the Accl. values are set to.

Hi, RC

Doesn't seem to help hear, My BobCad v23 won't tolerate a setting above 2 clicks from None on the Acceleration.

Thanks, Chip
