Threading with mach3
« on: April 29, 2021, 04:38:26 PM »
Hello everyone,

I have converted my mini lathe MX-210V to cnc lathe, but now i want to cut threads.
Can i use the sensor which comes with the lathe for reading the rpms or must be different sensor.
I'm using RNR Motion Card

As long as you get a clean pulse into the board and the board can do index threading you are good, optical switches are better.

How many pulses per rev does it generate?  M3 needs just 1 ppr.   Opto are good, Hall Effect also good,  many addon tachos use Hall sensors.
