Re: ShopBot Acorn ATC retrofit

A little update... I had some free time today and I finally finished my air blast to make sure the tool I'm picking up is clean. It works like this https://photos.app.goo.gl/zh5HEboCNbY6P74A9

Re: Cycle Start Button not working

Ok, I set my CycleStart2 switch to NC and things are working now...

It's weird because my Cycle Start is actually NO, and my tool check and stop are NC, but I have to have the exact opposite settings in the Acorn Wizard for things to work right. So I guess I found a workaround, but it's confusing.

Cycle Start Button not working <resolved>

I recently added physical start, stop and tool check buttons to my machine: https://centroidcncforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=5754&p=49456#p49456 I realized the other day that the cycle start button on my wireless pendant doesn't work along with the one in the virtual control panel. When I g...

Re: Wired MPG for Acorn?

Why not go with a wireless one? It's awesome and VERY responsive. I have a friend that has a wired one on Mach and this wireless one is so much better.

Re: Probing Angle/Corner

Oh interesting.... I thought I had to do the angle probe first. So if I had a jig setup just like you see it in my picture in the original post, doing an outside corner will essentially draw a line through the four points that are probed (two on X and two on Y) and where the lines meet, that's the c...

Probing Angle/Corner

Probing question for you all (probably Swissi!) I have some jigs that I use on a regular basis, most of them have right angles on at least one side. I'm using these jigs on a 4x8 router table. My table doesn't have any vices or pins on it to locate the jigs as I often also do full sheets. So imagine...
