spindle encoder options?
« on: December 13, 2007, 10:15:08 AM »
I am mostly done with my retrofit of a 13x40 import lathe and have everything up and working other than the spindle encoder. I am wondering if someone could help with a basic circut to use the infared emitter and detector part# 276-142 from radio shack . They are relativley cheap and avail just about everywhere

I started to go the way you are going.
I ended up with - http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=129

It's all together and works PERFECTLY.
Just a Thought
