Re: Anilam Crusader M 3 Axis Mill will not boot up.

I got in touch with Jerry who used to work for Anilam and he had me check and re-seat all of the IC's on the boards and the old girl fired right back up.

Anilam Crusader M 3 Axis Mill will not boot up.

I was hoping to get some help and get my old Anilam Crusader M 3 axis mill up and running again. It started not booting up on and off and the keypad would freeze and the screen would go blank every few times I would go to use it. I took all the boards out and cleaned them with deoxit contact cleaner...

Re: Way oil for DoAll 6x18 Manual Feed

Glenn, Vactra #2 is ISO68 and seems to cause the table to "float" b/c of the viscosity causing some finish problems. I was looking for an ISO32 oil to try to cut down on that issue. I could go to a Vactra #1 but it is hard to find in anything less than 5 Gallon pails. Best price I have found is $89 ...

Way oil for DoAll 6x18 Manual Feed

Any suggestions on a way oil for my manual Doall 6x18? I have thought about Mobil DTE24 and also Vacuoline 1405. If you have any input please let me know. I thought tackifiers in Vacuoline 1405 might cause some stickiness.

Thanks, Steve

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

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...
