Setting up axis A for rotary table
« on: October 09, 2010, 05:57:43 PM »
Hi,
I have a Sherline 4" rotary table for my CNC Taig mill. I mostly use the mill for wooden flute making, and restoration of antique flutes, but also do other small milling jobs.
I have a couple of  questions;
1. What are the jog keys for the A axis?
2. I would like to use the table as both degree and also have the option to run it by linking it to the Y axis, so I can draw it in 2D. Is that possible?
Take care,
Jon

You can use the  4+ and  / 4- in the tab flyout or configure your keyboard in Config>System Hot keys .

Thanks for the help.
I successfully milled my job using the Faking 4th Axis technique that I found on Carter Tools site.
Still have to figure out how to set up the hot keys for jogging the axis.
Take care,
Jon
