Just bought a Feeler FHNC without controller to retrofit (copy of the Hardinge CHCN II). this unit came with A5-2 spindle mount. The retrofit will be one of those PC based motion controller card types (driven by PM AC servo's). Camsoft will most likely come to mind.
I am looking for manuals (copies or otherwise) that detail the mechanics - with specifications and maintenance procedures for these machines.
Does anybody have plans for a bar feeder to take 6' bars? I need to process about 10 x 1/2" bars per run (some 1" to 1/4" bars also. There was one person advertising plans on E-Bay a while ago, but I don't seem to find it anymore.
