Problem with G76 taper!
« on: June 08, 2009, 11:32:56 AM »

Hi All,
I am having trouble getting G76 to work right!  I am trying to cut a thread with a 5 degree taper, but mach is only cutting a 2.5 degree taper.  I am working in diameter mode but I don't see how that would make it only cut half the angle because it is cutting the correct diameter.  I did try changing the “T” value to 10 and then it cut a 5 degree taper.

Any help would be great!

I think tapers in shafts are normally defined in dia so the angle would be double. EG on a boats propellor shaft the normal taper is 1:12, that is an agle of 2.385 degrees per side but you would set the taper attachment of a manual lathe to 4.77 degrees.
