On to the next step
« on: April 04, 2006, 07:21:22 PM »
Well I got my motors and everything working great now. I did some cnc work on my lathe this weekend by just hand coding the g code and it worked great. But now I want to add some home switchs so I dont have to adjust my code everytime. Can you guys give me some pointers on which brand and model home switchs and a spindle sensor would be good for a sieg lathe?

Thanks, Tim

Check out Automationdirect.com under limit switches. there are some small ones that should do fine for that...
