Re: My Sherline chucker lathe & 5400 mill with Acorn control build

Only post reports from YOUR machine as you go.
Taking the time to load a report and try and help you, that was not from your machine is counter productive.

We are volunteering our time here to help others. Most of us do not work for Centroid. Let's make the best use of that time.

Re: AXYZ 4008 with tool change carousel...need some advice

I don't understand it. The docs clearly shows either way works and they even give you examples how to wire them. I dont get it, but I'll bring a db25 cable just in case though. Is there some undocumented issue with connecting step/dir to the terminals? I have done over 30 retrofits. Granted most of...

Intercon works great for what it is intended for.
Take the time to read the operator's manual and understand it, you might find it beneficial at times.
I use it more and more.

Re: AXYZ 4008 with tool change carousel...need some advice

Not sure what you guys are getting at. I upgraded the original to linuxcnc and it worked fine. I am upgrading to acorn and want to use single ended mode cause the drives db25 are already set for single ended mode. Gary, not sure what you mean by that. Can you clarify? Many users go the "easy&q...

Re: My Sherline chucker lathe & 5400 mill with Acorn control build

First one thing I noticed. From your log files, on the 15th, about 17:25:10, the PC/MPU were gone. Is this when you unplugged everything from Acorn and was back to a basic bench test? Only Acorn plugged into the PC? (1) 09-15-2021 17:25:10 204 Exiting CNC...Normal Exit (66) (1) 09-15-2021 17:26:03 1...

Re: My Sherline chucker lathe & 5400 mill with Acorn control build

Every time you make a configuration change in the Wizard, the report changes. You said you restored a Report from Sherline. That negated the report you uploaded. The Report contains all your machine parameters/configuration/logs. I will load your "Sherline" report on my bench test machine ...
