    Default SlantPro Toolsetting

    Hi Guys. I thought a thread on toolsetting would be useful. Please post your tips and questions here.

    I'll start it off with this video:

    Hey Cliff, I'm hoping to see what sort of "tricks" folks post up. I'll try and get something up on how I have been doing things on mine. Would love to see some sort of auto tool setter down the road. I've gotten pretty fast at dialing in the X offsets. However, shimming and such on the Y offset is a real pain in the ass, especially with gang tools. I've got an idea for a highly accurate LED type setter. I just need to make the time to work on the concept.

    Later,

    I picked up one of the Tschorn lathe too setters at a good price; it seems to work fairly well and is certainly a lot quicker than the tool touch off method. Maybe Cliff will come up with an ITTP version for the lathe?

    I used the lathe tool setter too. Quick and highly accurate

    Hey Cliff - I've got $800 ready to send to you for the tool setter! Will go nicely with the three ITTP's we have!

    Are there electronic probe location routines available or written into PP for sbl15?

    I have been using a Haimer that I use in my mill to determine the offsets for the tools in my lathe. I have never seen anyone else do it, but it works well for setting the tool X and Z offsets. Just put the TTS 3/4 shank in the 3 jaw and take your measurements.

    I've done the same thing. I actually got a really good deal on one on Flea Bay so that I didn't risk screwing up anything on my mill Haimer. One of the things I want to do is to make a flat spot probe tip that can be clocked to be square to the lathe bed. This way you have a more accurate landing spot.

    Sounds like a flat bottom probe tip would be handy for this. Wonder why Hamier don't make one for cnc lathe use?

    Smokediver, why the probe flat for clocking to bed?
    I see flat ends for the T-horn probe but no centered flat area.

    My thought is to make some sort of tool holder that would hold the Haimer in the chuck or 5C collet and allow you to clock the four sided flats to the machine. This would allow you to dial in the Y axis (tool height) as well as easily setting the X along a flat spot vs having to hit the center line on some sort of barrel.

    I purchased the Tschorn one (https://www.tschorn-gmbh.de/en/produ...rDREHplus.html) and ended up returning it because it would not give me repeatable accuracy. Still had to do skim cuts to dial the tool in which didn't give me anything much better than an a simple SPI LED indicator.

    I'm in a bit of a rush so I won't get to watch the video until this evening so I'm not sure the comment I'm about to make is applicable. Edge technology makes a cnc lathe gage (Part Number 13-000) for setting lathe tools and it works on slant bed lathes. I think it only sets centre height though not offsets. I'm planning on buying the lesser pro lathe gauge (Part Number 02-000). For the record I have not used either of these products and only heard about them a couple of days ago. From the video it did look quick and easy to use them.
