Mach 3 lathe with tool changer, problem
« on: June 29, 2015, 01:56:15 PM »
hello everyone, I have Mach 3 lathe, and I am trying to run the tool changer as the A axis, yet I can't get it to work in mach 3 lathe, I can get it to work in mach 3 mill fine.

When I try to job the A axis in mach 3 lathe nothing happens, but if I try to job it kn mach 3 mI'll it's jobs fine.

Am I missing something?

I have the ports and pins the same, a axis is enabled it mach 3 lathe, I do not have a dro set up in the screen, or a tool change number set up yet but will work on that once it moves properly,

Any help would be appreciated!!

This is an older thread.
Did you find a solution?
I have a turret tool changer. I have no issue changing tools. Using the A axis.
