Mike was the OTHER lathe using the LPT or the ESS.  With teh ESS the spindle stup is ALL done from teh ESS side NOT from Mach3.  IF Greg never setup closed loop control then it will NEVER happen.

are you confusing teh OpenLoop Control with CSS ???

Well it's funny that you mention that. Cuz I noticed that the first pass would be at 45 rpm, second is like 250 rpm and the final pass is 500 ish rpm.

Yes the other lathe was lpt, not ess.

Will changing to mach4 help these issues? Or maybe a different controller I'm thinking?

I was thinking the csmio or hi con if the ess can't do the spindle right. Maybe kflop?

I really need the commanded spindle to match and try to keep the speed, especially for heavy cuts.

Any thoughts?

The LPT version and the ESS version are 2 different CATS.

So do you think the issue is the ess? Or mach 3?

Can I upgrade to mach4 easily?

It would have to be a ESS issue as IT is what actually controls the spindle . You need to speak with Greg over at Warp 9 about this issue.

EVEN IF you could get Mach4Turn to work the ESS still controls the spindle (;-)

There is a long running topic on threading which I do not believe has ever been resolved.

It is not a mach3 issue.

Mach4 will not bring any of the more complex features yet from the looks of things... My advice if you are in an industrial environment and time is money stick with machmach 3 for the moment given way more people know about it and asking a question will bring 10 armchair experts (me one of them) and three Yoda's.

Cismo has a threading module but you need the controller first have a look at their site.

The threading will probably solve any synchronisation issues....

Thanks guys, so Robert, I have a csmio ipa I have worked wity, haven't finished that project yet lol.

I was thinking of getting a hicon motion controller, or dspmc, any info on this control?

I'll probably ditch the ess for the lathe then...I spent so much time lol

Sorry, I have an ESS unfortunately (for my sins), I looked at hicon (but it was a little out of my hobby range)... I am also more into x/Y tables than lathes.

Probably should have gone cismo at times... Just adding all the modules can be expensive (I'm a hobby tinkerer).

I'd suggest you get a login and have a look at the warp9 forum as the lathe threading thread is fairly high up on the list (1st or second page).

There is also kflop (just another site to check)

Not sure if pdmx can do what you want Steve is quite active on here.
