Need some help with S&D lathe spindle...
« on: September 30, 2008, 11:26:38 PM »
Ok, where to start.  I'm running a servo spindle on my lathe.  The spindle runs fine if I set it to an axis, but when in spindle mode only the direction LED lights up.  I don't get any step pulses.  Also, for some reason in the motor tuning box, I can't change the steps/unit for the spindle (other axis are fine).  It's stuck at "10" which is causing me problems since I have about 40,000 steps per revolution.  This is the last big hangup on this lathe before I can start making some wonderful blue chips, anyone have any ideas??

OK guys, I got it working.  Upgraded to the beta version from 2.64 and it's working good.
