    Hey guys,
    Did anyone order/receive one of Glockcnc headstocks?
    How is it? are you happy with it? is the TIR as promised?

    Well I am waiting for mine...
    Covid has made custom Manufacturing a nightmare!!
    Also they had problems with the spindle mfg.
    Also some were so out of specs, they could correct them with the final grinding.
    So Now they are being re-made in the US, and all upcoming production will be done in the US!
    But it is an upgrade to my Mt3 setup, so I am still making things.....

    I received my spindles.
    Like you said things took a long time, 7 months.
    My 5c was out of specs (0.004 tir), I had to send it back to get another one, but now I have both the 5c and bt-30 and they are beautiful and to specs.

    I had also ordered the motor upgrade (1200w) and it's driver is giving me problems. I can't tune and match the motor speed to my encoder readings with enough consistency across the scale. I emailed Jim at Glockcnc two weeks ago but he couldn't help me. So I'm hoping someone else has the same motors, maybe someone found a solution?

    Here is the problem:

    Controller (acorn) speed control voltage 0-10 values have been tested and are accurate

    Motor maximum speed is rated at 5400 rpm.
    set driver max speed to 5400 rpm

    Pulley diameter on motor is 3.116, pulley diameter on spindle (encoder) is 1.816, the gear ratio is then 1.715

    5400 rpm of max speed on motor gives me a 9261 rpm max speed in Acorn
    So I set max spindle speed in Acorn to 9261, minimum speed to 0 rpm,

    I'm trying to match the commanded motor speed to the spindle encoder reading:

    run the test for different rpms:

    1k=840 rpm
    3k=2872
    5k=4940
    7k=7002
    8k=8065


    This shows me that these settings work well for 7k rpm, at 7k rpm the encoder matches the motor.
    below 7k the encoder value is below the commanded values, and the high range goes above

    Lets try to tune this a bit, so my 5k is better tuned:
    Change acorn maximum speed from 9261 rpm to 9000 rpm:

    1k=870
    3k=2968
    5k=5096
    7k=7230
    8k=8308

    the 5k is closer now, below 5k the values are under, above 5k the values are above.
    I need to get accurate rpms at 640 rpm so I can do rigid taping. If I lower the max speed I can get very close, but that lowers my maximum speed a lot and all values above 640rpm are exponentially higer, 8k becomes almost 10k



    Does this make sense? Does it show that I’m missing a bottom scale parameter somewhere hidden in the driver?
    The manual is very short and very badly translated and barely makes sense. I looked and tried every parameter, I did not find a setting that would act as a bias or gain.

    Anybody experienced this?
