    Hi Guy's,

    My arm is nearly broken I think, LMAO.

    Checking with CNCadmin, what I can actually say here, so please be patient. If you PM me a request I can give you some info on the drives or I will post what I can shortly.

    Well Boss Man has said it is ok to talk about the product specifications.

    The new drive is a fast, ultrasmooth running, dc servo drive. It is an intellegent device using high speed programmed micro processors (not pics). Our drives come in two models 1. 0-80V 25amps 2. 0-200V 20amps. These are realistic specs, not pushing the boundries of the fet ratings like other devices. The drives are featured with an inbuilt step multiplier, 8 bit and 12 bit selectable error count, +/- 1-10V controlled output for driving servo amps or vvvf drives, fast 2meg encoder input acceptance, 2meg step input acceptance, PID tuning, current limiting facility. The drive can run in velocity or axis mode which will allow the user to use it as a spindle speed controller acceping PWM information from the PC software for programmable spindle speed. The velocity/axis modes can be software switched to allow third party software (which we and others distribute) to perform automatic thread cutting on lathes as well as other functions. The new device does not have an annoying hunting noise when the motor is in a stopped condition.

    There are other features that our drives have but I think this is enough to bore you all with right now.

    I think this is all I should morally say for now.

    Hey Guys,

    Another Michael here, too many already i think.
    I have met Boros already, great bloke and his machine will kick ass when its up and running.

    My details

    I am a newbie to all of this.
    I want to build a cnc router to route out wing ribs and fuselage formers, i'm into model aircraft in a big way. I figured i coulf combine my passion for aircraft and electronics into one, what a nutter!!

    I'm sorry ynneb i missed that barie the other day, but I was tending to my new born son, I think the wife would have spat the chips if i said i had to mosie out and catch up with a few fellas.

    Any how, i would love to catch up with you guys, chat about cnc and all the great things I could build.

    On another note, why in the hell arn't there any cnc surplus stores in Melbourne?? i went to singapore and found two shops with stacks of cnc surplus stuff, i was a little kid playing in mud.

    Cheers
    Mikie

    Talking

    Dave,

    You're a man to my own heart. Chips & scallops, the staple diet of any working tradie

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Does anybody know or have done any home-brew foundry work? I'm looking at starting this project from the VERY bottom ...

    Hi DaDukeofoz,
    if like me your interested in melting metal try this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hobbicast/ or this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/castinghobby/ or this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HomeFoundry/ or this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/metalcasters/ or this link http://l.webring.com/hub?ring=hobbyfoundry
    I'm not yet to the stage of doing my own castings but it's well up there in my list of things to do, in fact my main reason for getting into cnc is to make precision high quality patterns and machine the the finished castings. Welcome to the forum.
