I'm getting my feet wet with a ES-L6 lathe. It has OSP-U100L control.
Anytime I try to start the spindle, either with MDI or run a simple program I get a "1717 Tailstock/Spindle condition illegal" alarm.
Can you help?
thanks

I know that control on a mill not a lathe, so maybe I'm totally wrong. But on the 5020 control as follows. Parameters, item down (F6 or F7) three times (I think) and there is a screen that says tailstock/chuck, if you are not using the tailstock set that one to 0 (zero), if you are set it to 1. Hope that helps. Robert:cheers:

The last post was on the right track. See PDF file and set Chuck/C. work to 0. This should fix the problem
