Been waiting a fair bit on some updates to the smoothstepper for this project.   Originally it was going to be g100 based, but as we all know thats just about a dead project.

Spent most of the weekend doing more rewiring in the cabinet of the Hardinge.   Main thing to do was the soft start for the Servo power supply.   This is done and works a treat, no more nuisance tripping which I occasionally got when powering up the 1000VA supply.

Haha.   Well Kinda!   I have done 2 more lathes, 1 mill and an automated plating line since I started this one ;)    Just none of em have Mach installed ;)   They were not for me though sadly.

It's OK Robin!    Oh and the vacformer which was for me.    Who'd have thought I'd had made over 1000 silly hats for Devo since March.    Thats spawned yet another project though.

I really could of done with the Hardinge during this time though, I had to sub a fair bit of work out.    Still we're getting there now.   Need to though as my original Hardinge (Smaller Spindle) will get a revamp when this ones done.
