Thanks Hood, I am using the exact same keyboard, Storm 2210, how do I go about using pots to control the feed/spindle overides

My milling machine conversion is comming on well, although I have experience of manual control machines I have very little CNC experience

I am in the process of making the front panel control and would like some advise on what hardware buttons should be on the wish list.

With my lack of CNC running experience, and a limited number of inputs and outputs available, I would like some ideas from othe users what they consider to be "must have" or "would be nice to have" as hardware buttons / control

I am hoping to use the original MPEG wheel and mount it on the consule too, my list may look some thing like this

jog +
jog  -
single step
axes selector
feed overide
spindle overide
coolant overide
machine hold

have I missed anything that may be useful, or have I included anything that may not be of much benefit as a hardware button

I would really appreciate some input / advise from  users with more experience than I have

I am still having real trouble trying to get past this point, I have read thge manual and watched the video several times, cant see what I am doing wrong.
Most likely it is something simple that I am missing !

just get the error "machine is out of limits for softlimit activation"

I have set soft limits in inches at soft  Y min 0 max 22, X min0 max 12.5, Z min 0 max -4.5

Have tried inputting different settings, machine is homming to the limits as it should

General Mach Discussion / limits and homing
« on: September 23, 2012, 07:15:30 PM »
I have managed to get my Hurco under power and moving, I have got the limits set up and machine is homing to x- and y- limit then backing off a little
I would like to home to a postion about an inch or so off the limit, how do I set this up, I have tried entering the +1 or +2 in the homing cordinates box, but this has no effect

Also having real trouble trying to set up the soft limits, keep getting an error message when I try to switch them on, something like "limits are not in range"

I have 24" travel on x, have tried setting the soft limits to min 0 , max 23, wont let me enable them, what am I doing wrong
