Mach 3 Run Time / Spindle Time?
« on: June 14, 2014, 06:44:27 PM »

I have been a lurker here on the Mach 3 forum for a while and want to mention how much I have learned from the people of this forum. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. It's really appreciated. Background, I have a Bridgeport 3 axis CNC mill that had an Anilam Crusader II system that last October 2013 I retrofitted to a Mach Motion 3 axis system. I gutted and replaced the entire system including the axis motors. It has been running awesome and has already paid for itself. Going from a system that was expensive to keep running and limited to memory size, it's great to have the Mach 3 system on the mill now.

The question I have on Mach 3 is, is there a way to find out what the total run time / spindle time on the Mach 3 system? Like an hour meter that exists on other controllers. It's just a curiosity more than a need to know what the total run time really is. Below are a couple of photos of the last job I just completed which is an adapter plate for a 1968 International tractor turbo. Unable to get an new turbo for the 1968 tractor the owner was able to get a new turbo for an early 1970's 1466 International tractor that I designed and fabricated the adapter plate for. Well thanks in advance for any info on the run time / spindle time. I appreciate it...
