    Centurion 6 DNC is outsmarting me, any help appreciated

    Hi All, We have a partner 5 w. Cent6 controls. We usually send over files via RS232 using Realterm on the computer. It takes a long time but it generally works fine. I'm trying to run a part now that is too large to download onto the machine and I'd like to use DNC. I followed the manual I...

    Hard tapping mystery (G88)

    Working on a Centurion 6 controlled Partner 5 machining center, we have rigid tapping available and it seems to work fine but it always adds a 10 second dwell at the bottom of the hole and another 10 second dwell at the top of the hole.

    Help please! Poor Monarch CM in desperate need of maintenance.

    Gentlemen, Thanks for the help. This weekend I was able to get the clutch assembly back together and it's working great. I do have a couple remaining questions though that I'm wondering if anyone can help me with. 1. There are two oil ports on the top of the leadscrew gearbox, (circled in...

    Help please! Poor Monarch CM in desperate need of maintenance.

    Rabler, Thanks for the reply, I'll take a stab at some springs. I did order the manual but it was pretty generic and didn't help in that area. All the other parts are ordered so we should be putting it back together next week and I'll report back with what else is broken.. Cheers!

    Help please! Poor Monarch CM in desperate need of maintenance.

    Hi all, first time posting here. I recently purchased a Monarch 22CM. 12,000lbs of beautiful iron I just couldn't say no to. Unfortunately it looks like maintenance wasn't big on the previous owners list of things to do and the bearings that the drive pully ride on evidently didn't get grease...
