I have the same problem.My workaround is to add a dwell of a second at the start of each cut.
Kind of like waiting to engage the half nuts.Seems to work ok.I bought another ss for
the lathe but have not had time to install it.

SmoothStepper USB / index pulse
« on: January 28, 2009, 10:19:17 PM »
how would or is the index pulse set up on the smooth stepper.I have a cnc4pc c3 board for
the pulse.Im only going to use the pulse to trigger a stop signal for the spindle.I tried connecting a second
bob to the ss but did not get it sorted on the ports/pins stuff.I need acurate location for the stop to do
a tool change.

Hi Hood
I did away with the start/run relays on my bob and connected the vfd to the modbus
control.I'm using the cubloc 290 so I have 91 i/o's to choose from.It now is working fine.
Funny how the bob is reacting ,I would like to know how to control the spindle relays
 that are built on to the board.Now for the tool changer.I like the hot swap idea of poppabears
and if I can find the code try to implement it on my 25 position tool drum.
Thanks for the help.

I'm using rev 5.Yes the speed is controllable.I only discovered this when I
tried to implement a delay for my big mill.I was going to use it for the gear change.
I may have to go back and rethink my gear shift.The gear shift brain is attached.

It will start with an M3/4 or a button press.

any one want to look at the xml files I have to see why the spindle start relays on the campbell
board engage in any state .ie wrong pin #, wrong port # delays added thru brains or spindle
setup.I fact the only way I found so they will not turn on is by removing the DoSpinCW()
in the m3 macro.
