Re: Techno-Isel Router Acorn Upgrade

What was the large toroidal supply in the early photo? The power supply that was originally supplied with the router. Was that toroidal power supply not suitable to reuse? What kind of voltages did it provide? I like them over switchers if they can do the job. Looking good so far. I'd like to buy/b...

Re: Bridgeport Series 2 Interact II Retrofit

Oh Man! - the whole summer of Saturdays - and it's not over, it turns out my Spindle bearings were loose - with about .020 of vertical play - so now it's torn apart and discovered someone before me put cheapo bearings in it. I'm also tweaking the PLC to accommodate the Joysticks - Mario in Support ...

Right on!
Yes, I had to also set my encoder value to a negative number. Glad to hear you are making progress!

Re: Acorn lathe? (Acorn CNC12 Lathe has been released! 10-20-17)

Finished wiring my encoder (phew, what a tedious process, I see why they cost so much!) installed 4.08 mill 1st like Keith did in the video, then installed lathe. All went well until I try to install the Pro unlock in lathe so I can test the encoder. I was sent the unlock via email on Aug 18 & has ...

Re: Touchscreen Monitor deal on Ebay

Hi Marty, As mentioned earlier, $85 is the lowest offer that would not be automatically declined. I put $40 shipping as a condition and he countered at $95 plus about $46 shipping to Hawaii. He must be selling a lot of them now and not willing to go so low. :roll: I'm debating on what I want to do....

Re: Touchscreen Monitor deal on Ebay

Cool, thanks for that info! I just got my new PC up and running and I picked up an Asus touchscreen off Amazon. I made an offer but the shipping is almost a dealbreaker here...$50...OUCH! I would suggest you reach out to the seller and ask for accurate shipping charges rather than let the ebay calc...

Re: Acorn lathe? (Acorn CNC12 Lathe has been released! 10-20-17)

Wow, a lot has been going on here since I've been gone! Just placed an order for Acorn #2. :P Question...what would be the best method to install both Mill and Lathe software? Can you just do one at a time without problems? I'm assuming there will be a lathe wizard and a mill wizard so they can bot...

I just ordered one and the best they would do was $85 plus their shipping charge of $27.47 for a total of $112.47.
I get it, I'm in AZ and the seller is in California. $16.95 for me. Orin you must be on the right coast or close to? Still a deal!
