    This is the Home made HW box, a fanuc HW again from ebay.
    A source of Handwheels and portable pendants like this is Sumtak. They also have the components separately including the mult-conductor curly cord.

    Thanks, Al. Interesting. So do you have this machine producing chips yet?

    First you get good, then you get fast. Then grouchiness sets in.

    Hu, The first one Acromill(see 1stPic) is.
    In fact I made the panel cutout on this one for the Camsoft one I have yet to finish.
    Will post a pic when done. One thing I prefer is to keep things like feedrate & spindle o/r as hard wired switches as I do not think they lend themselves well to touch screen or mouse applications.
    Also I like to use cycle start, feed hold and spindle stop as h/w buttons. I also want to integrate a measuring touch probe I picked up for this machine, I am looking for measuring probe macro's I can adapt (hole center, material edge etc,etc) rather than re-inventing the wheel.

    Default MAZAK V15

    I made this interface board to accept the original ribbon cables and wires going to the control panel. I converted them to the DB25 output, just like the CamSoft pendant, and used the HandHeld I/O logic.

    Al-
    How much trouble was it converting to the timing belt? I have my machine running now with a VFD and am getting about 6k RPM in high gear (the VFD isn't maxed out but I'm afraid to push it any higher even though it's still running pretty smoothly and not making any more noise than at lower speed.) Did you have to fabricate the pulleys or can they be purchased?

    Thanks!

    Dan

    I purchased pulleys and belt 1:1 6k is pretty high for that motor, I did not run mine anymore than around 4k.
    I may have the pulley No's somewhere, I just sold the mill so I cannot get the info off it.
