Galil And Lathe
« on: March 08, 2014, 11:47:08 PM »
I have a Lathe project and I was wondering how well Galil would work for a lathe motion controller


thanks Adam

It works well except there is no support for threading at the moment.  Kenny is working on this right now.  But there are no guarantees that threading will ever be working at this point.  It looks promising.  But if you need threading, you might want to wait or choose another controller.

Lathe single point threading now works using spindle encoder following. Works great too!

Having way too much fun! Something must surely be wrong.

Hi Ken,
  I'd like to watch the vid but cannot get to it. Search as I may.

Can you give better directions ?

Thanks,
Russ
