Things got off to a slow start this morning because they would not let Ron and Brian unload until today.  By 10:00 things picked up.   I learned something today that made the entire trip worth it.  I found there was a peck drill pull back setting in mach.  Mine was set for .1".  I always wondered why my mill would pull up so far when peck drilling.

The temperature in San Jose, CA yesterday was 75 degrees.  Today in York it was 12 degrees F on the drive to the show and 16 degrees on the drive home.  The wind was blowing about 10 mph so I would imagine it was close to single digits with the wind chill factor.  Not very warm for a Californian (no wonder my parents moved from PA when I was a child).

When I get home I will write up more of what I got from the seminar.  As a CNC guy who uses servos, I felt like the red headed stepchild with all the stepper guys around. 

I attached a picture of the seminar with Brian in the front and Ron off to the side making a point.

We were not able to get the manual printed for a reasonable price. Id still like to see it happen, but It doesnt look good. You might try a place like Staples or Kinkos, I have had multi hundred page docs printed and bound.

The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c).     a² + b² = c².

Would you mind telling us how the pull back is changed?

To change the peck drill pull back value goto the ports and pins menu, choose mill options.  In the lower right you will see G73 Pullback.

Mind sharing where that setting is.
