Pot to stop axis
« on: November 23, 2008, 06:56:03 PM »
For anyone interested I have made up a Brain so that if I turn my FRO pot to minimum it will feedhold  then when I turn up again it will start the code running again. Seems to work fine here but as usual test with caution and at your own risk ;)

Heres another Brain that might be of use, it sets the FRO to 100% if the FRO is between 98 and 102%, stops the FRO LED constantly flashing and makes it easy to set pot to 100%.

Just wanted to chime in here and say that even though I'm not utilizing these functions now, I do appreciate the info being here when I may need it.

Thanks so much, Hood-  :)

no problems Dave, just want this for the lathe as it will be perfect for testing out new code especially now you can lock the rapids and FRO. Means you can slow right down or even stop as the tool is aproaching the stock.

Have updated the Brain to do the same for the Spindle override as it does for the FRO.
