New here, quick question 2T on TC-2
Am aquiring a 1984 Taki TC-2 with a Fanuc 2T-F control.
Looking through the books I see the G32 and G92 thread cycles, but nothing on how to tap.
Feel silly here as I used to run CNC Lathes 12 years ago, just not familiar with this control.
I'm thinking I need to use a spring pull tap holder and program it line by line for clockwise/feed in
Stop motion/Stop Spindle
Reverse Spindle/Reverse motion????
or is there a canned cycle that works by leaving out the U(depth per pass) comms?
Many thanks, I know it will come back to me fairly quickly, just been a while lol.

Manual programming of the tapping cycle is the easiest option,this is for a 1mm pitch thread,using a floating holder,notice is feeds slower going in,then faster coming out,to utilise the float on the holder.
Thought that was how I remembered it, lol
