Re: Laser attatchment for the Shark Pro HD

Re: HD 520 controller update

en precio: yes, and yes. If your z-axis won't go to the bottom, then it's usually the product ID got reset, and needs to be put to 4003 (for the 510), or 4004 (for the longer 520). Or at least that's the rumors. I'm pretty sure sacrificing a chicken was removed in the 4.5 generation :twisted: Regard...

Re: Overriding Z axis in the controller?

If you have the old silver box and using the original control panel software, type Ctrl-G, and then 787 for the password. The VERY long number that is in there must be that precise. The native resolution of 200 pulses per revolution at 0.5" travel per revolution (four starts, 8 Thread per inch), or ...

Re: Need some assistance

Check your GCode for a G64 setting. If it's not in there, up near the G20/G21 inches/mm line, add G64 P0.001 save the file and re-run it and see if that's any different. G64 sets the "best speed path", or how close the bit is required to come to the endpoints of the GCode blocks. On some machines, e...

Re: online quran classes (Mohammed was not a prophet!)

Stop posting here, jackhole. This place is about CNC machining, not your religion, or my religion, or even my non-religion.

Your Koran is a blasphemy and should be burned.

Now go away.

Re: Setting/Saving permanent home x,y?

LOL....Hi Kayvon! Fancy seeing you here :D And for me, I just leave it on. I'm pretty sure the last time I intentionally turned it off was last summer. maybe July? The computer reboots whenever Microsoft insists for an update, but as far as I know, I don't ever lose steps. When I do turn it off, the...

Re: Huanyang Inverter how to reverse spindle?

If the VFD thinks it is turning in the forward direction, but your spindle is going backwards,
then take any two of the three motor leads and reverse them (excluding any ground connection).
Three phase AC induction motors work that way.

Re: antifreeze instead of water in spindle

RV antifreeze (not windshield washer fluid) is quite commonly used. Water is actually a more-efficient heat conductor, but it boils and freezes. And stuff grows in it. A couple drops of bleach every month prevents that. I use antifreeze in mine. Spindles like to run in the 80-100F range, so it's not...
