Re: Struggling with lathe tool auto touch off

I would fix the lathe, sounds like lot of mechanical issues.

I run Acorn only on a cheap benchtop lathe with 5" chuck, but TT works from Alu to stainless steel.

Negative rake tooling is only good with very rigid lathes.

Re: LED lighting

Yes, better use an own power supply. Use the one for Acorn only for Acorn and proximity sensors.

Re: Struggling with lathe tool auto touch off

I wouldn't waste time using auto touch off. When I touch off a probe in my lathe it never cuts on size. Probe touch off is only really useful for super rigid machines with no flex. If you have a small lathe don't waste your time, the most accurate way is to make a skim cut as it add in all the flex...

Re: 3.5 api reg thread gcode mill

You need a thread mill to cut this on a mill, or use a boring bar from a lathe with a threading insert to mill it, but that is very slow.

Re: wireless mpg

The black bar indicates sending, it goes on with buttons and the MPG.

Re: Error Code 916 while auto squaring

I don´t think the probe is defect, Inputs are switching as they should.

Probably something in the autosquare is not right.

Re: Error Code 916 while auto squaring

sorry for the confusion, probe is connected ok. Looks like on my mill with NC probe.

But I can not test autosquare, because I have no router.
