    Design question overhead cable track

    Have a design question. Putting up a batting cage inside a shop we have on the property. Pretty common design, where the cage (55' long, 14' wide) will hang from three 3/16 or 1/4" cables running the length of the shop. One end is simple, attach the cables straight to the a convenient header...

    hand written code hangs at end

    I've done very little manual programming... So there's your newbie warning. I have relied on my OneCNC post until now, lol. Just getting going with the first time using a 4th axis, so I am hand writing this program. The 4th axis part of it seems to be working fine, but I am obviously not...

    source for centerless ground round stock

    Hey gang, Basically I am looking to get a small quantity of material to fabricate some shafts. Length is 12" and the diameter is .4988, and another batch at .4905. Something in the 40 of each range is needed for proof of concept. I've done some cold calls, but does anyone have personal...

    Motion simulation

    Looking to simulate motion. This is a centrifugal advance mechanism, whereas the blue plate will swing out as RPM increases, thereby moving the grey center plate. Up until now, I have only been able to either eyeball the contact faces and tediously measure the movement of the center cam vs...

    undersize drill rod supplier

    Many years ago, around 2012-13 I purchased .749 drill rod for a project. I have one length left, and thought I'd add it to my next McMaster order, but I've checked up and down and can't find it on their site. Was sure that is where I'd purchased it from, but coming up blank. Looked thru all...

    Fanuc PS0087 issue, need a hand

    Slight update, no forward progress tho. With Generaldisarray chiming in, I followed that link for the FIFO registry changes, tho my Windows 10 does not have the same folders as the one in that post instructed, however I searched for RXfifo and TXfifo and found them. I changed the values from...

    Fanuc PS0087 issue, need a hand

    Looks like my software allows "TIMING - LINE DELAY (mSec)" so I'll give that a try. Others in my boat have slowed the BAUD and reported success, while some have changed the FIFO setting, which is eluding me, but this thread may shed light on the fact that newer PC operating systems (in his...

    Fanuc PS0087 issue, need a hand

    I will look into adding line pacing. I think I saw something in the settings area for the dnc program. Also thanks for the tip on hardware handshaking. I will look into that also. The Cnc tech had re-pinned my cable when the machine was set up, not sure what pinout it is.

    Fanuc PS0087 issue, need a hand

    Ok, I’ll look into that. Some of our work is heavy in 3D contouring, so the lines of code add up quick. Thanks

    Fanuc PS0087 issue, need a hand

    I know my Fagor would alarm out with more than 10,000 lines... and you may be on to something there. Tho I have not seen anyone mention it in my searches today, seems centered on either the baud rate or the FIFO setting on the PC.
