Spin Grinding Wheel Before Starting

Anyone ever hear of spinning the grinding wheel several times by hand before starting the surface grinder and making sure that the wheel is still spinning when you start the machine? In the proper direction of course.

Thanks,
Steve

Ping Harold Vordos

Harold,

Didn’t you put a treatise on surface grinding settings somewhere on the board? I know you outlined depth and step over etc. can you point me to it or possibly post it again here?

Thanks,

Adding % in CNC Program/ Anilam Crusader Control

Any ideas how to easily enter a % after every 200 blocks of code? I have an Anilam Crusader M control on my mill and it has the drip feed option through RS232. However, it requires the % to shut down the servos while the machine downloads more code. It is a real pain to manually enter these and I do...

Re: Kurt Draw Bar on Anilam Crusader M

Thanks so much for the pictur Glenn!!! My Kurt drawbar does not have the black hose going to the manifold. I still cannot figure out why so much oil comes out the exhaust port of the butterfly ratchet. It may have been run with too much oil. I will see if I cannot run all of the oil out of it and se...

Kurt Draw Bar on Anilam Crusader M

I have a Lagun CNC mill with an Anilam control and have gotten it to the point it is ready to run. When I tested the Kurt power drawbar tonight there were a few problems. 1) I hit the "in" button and then let it go oil misted out of the back of the push button switch. The same thing happened when I ...

Re-Tram Rigid Head Mill

I have a Lagun FTV2 fixed head on my CNC mill with Anilam Crusader M control. It is indexed to the machine with two pins and slips into a boss in the machine casting and bolts on with 4-3/4" bolts. When I moved in the machine I had to remove the head from the machine to get it into the shop. I have ...

Problem with order from Wholesale Tools

I ordered $250 worth of NMTB 40 taper end mill holders for the new to me CNC knee mill. When I placed the order it said all were in stock. The next day I check my order and it says "back ordered". I wanted better quality holders, but to get started I ordered these since money is tight right now. So ...

Add a Pendant to an Anilam Crusader M Mill

I have the proper boards in the machine to do this but cannot find a pendant anywhere. Is there a way to add one with some of the shelf components?


Thanks,

Anilam Crusader II/ Crusader M Post Processor

Will an Anilam Crusader II post processor write the proper code to be used with an Anilam Crusader M control? I am playing around with Dolphin CAM and it has a post processor for Crusader II but not an M.
