Re: Steel Grab Irons

Hmmm, somthing must have been edited out before I read the previous notes as I didn't see anything regarding copying published material. If that was previously offered, then fair point. Regards, Mountaineer. The reference to provide a copy of the article was removed from the original post. I apolog...

I would be surprised if you ...

Re: Ballscrew tolerances and real world performance

When I get home, will have to see if my slim line glass encoder could even remotely fit the cross slide on my 8x14 lathe, I doubt it. It would be the closed loop stepper or servo driver that would read the quadrature glass scale input, correct? On an 8x14" lathe, the C7 ballscrews with close loop s...

Re: mhp s-24, st. louis

I am back, got busy and computer issues. Yes it is just a knee mill. The control is dead. The plan is to get it going with the all in one conversion without the tool changer to start with. Phase 2 will be adding the tool changer and maybe rigid tapping. the machine already has good servo motors and...
