Yes, I watched brian ram a 1/4 inch drill bit into aluminum running backwards. (Left hand threaded drill bit in the wrong drawer..not Brians fault. :)  ) Damn thing went in about an inch, and then corkscrewed the bit.
Never thought Id ever see the process of how they make corkscrews from drill bits..

(Hey Brian..what a great product thought, every machiniist woudl want a corkscrew make from a drill bit. :)  )

Brian, how smooth are the servos at really slow speeds? Do they exhibit any cogging? The fast stuff is really cool but most of the time my lathe will be running pretty slow during cutting.

It is VERY smooth at low speed. There is NO cogging and I have been VERY happy with them.

But you get what you pay for... The drives will do homing and backlash comp in the drive! They are FAST and can turn the PID loop real time... Nice drives

Brian, what acceleration do you have set on that mill with those servos?
Do you think they could provide position at 1000 IPM (thousand) of a 150lb head?
With lower resolution of course, I am looking for a solution that could help position a nailing gun at 1000ipm, I can only wish that I could move it at 2000ipm with a decent acceleration.
Regards
Fernando

I am running 60In/sec^2 and it could move a load at 1000IPM no problem

Where did you get the connectors to make your IO cables?
