    Okuma MX-45VAE Height with spindle down??

    Found the answer if interested. The MX-45VAE will fit through an 8ft tall opening if you take off the motor that controls Z and drop the spindle all the way down. The frame of the machine will be about 94". My ceiling is 109". According to the Okuma manual, the total operational height is...

    Okuma Lathe OSP-U10L zero offset question

    I'm new to Okuma and CNC lathes. I purchased a 2002 ES-L10 lathe with the U10L control. I'm trying to understand the way this lathe uses zero and tool offsets. I've read the manual but I'm still confused. In the Zero Set Page, I placed my master tool (T0101) at the top/face (not center) of...
