Re: Build Thread - Acorn Controlled CNC Coil Winder - Help?

but i'd rather users use the Wizard for any of the pregrogrammed actions that meet their requirements If he sets INP4 to be FeedHold2, and leaves the dot Green to indicate he is using a normally-closed contact, will the Wizard correctly generate an inversion for that input? < yes > I seem to recall...

Re: Rigid tapping skips holes randomly

nice, glad you got things working, thanks for posting the video.

i run in air first..then tap in wax..if you have any issues at all the wax thread will be ruined. Its a great test...then go metal...

Re: Build Thread - Acorn Controlled CNC Coil Winder - Help?

This is a cool machine, nice to see that Acorn can be used for all kind of stuff. Feed Hold with external button: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qa_SN9n-MY Will also helpful for external Start/Stop.
