This one worked out OK for me:
I guess I should have ordered a pair of white gloves, everywhere I touch the machine it leaves smudges, so much for the cream color ha!
I also need a stop button pendant so that when I hit the cycle start and something isnt right in the program, I can stop it without having to look up and locate the stop button, instantaneous shut down is what I am looking for. I think i will do some checking around to see if something of that nature is available.
So far I am well pleased with the machine.
Oh don't worry, soon the smudges will be obscured by the grease smear, metal chips and wood dust. :-)
Glad you're having fun.
I am just running the wizards trying to get used to the machine, and cutting wood, it is softer than steel and if theres a screw up, I would rather it plunge into a piece of pine........ Anyway the 2x4 cutoffs are getting scarce around here, but I do have a surplus of sawdust ha!
Good to hear mike , how are you making out with the programs ?
I wanted to get familiar with the machine first, from what I have seen on the software, its a bit complicated for me, I think I may have done better with a cheaper package but who knows.
I got another order of pipes in so I wont be able to play with it much for a couple of days.
Congratulations on your purchase. I'm planning on getting mine in a month and I just cant wait. I want an external estop switch too, but $105 seems a little unreasonable for what appears to be no more than $25 worth of parts.
I have noticed a vibration at the upper speeds in high and low range at approx 90 percent Has anyone else noticed this? I have narrowed it down to the belt not being balanced, not a big problem just somewhat annoying.
The machine controller computer also loses selective usb ports at times, I have had certian x or y directions not work on the mouse but will on the pendant, also it loses it from the keyboard occasionally. I have had this with other (laptop) computers, just wondering if its common?
I had the same vibration problem at higher spindle speeds particularly at maximum RPM's and it also appeared to me that it was the belt fluttering.
When I have had this problem on other machines I have switched to a Fenner Link Belt to ease the problem. After a bit of a search I found a 3/8" wide Link Belt and applied it to my 1100 and the problem was largely solved. At 4500RPM there is no vibration in the belt at all. I first started using these a long time ago and now use Link Belts on most of my equipment.
This may work for you.
