    Fanuc O-M will not send or receive programs from new computer?

    I have debated that, but i know some of the parameters i have are set for Xon/Xoff (Software) and i really dont want to tinker with that considering it worked before. Im also not too sure if the same cable im running would work with hardware handshake. I had a hell of a time figureing out the...

    Fanuc Series O-M Cant see Tool number location relative to tool pot in parameter list? Parameter 400s?

    Thank you for your response. That is exactly what i needed. I went in DGNOS parm, and #'s 430-450 had all different 8 digit sequences, which made me assume that corresponded to tool numbers 0-24 in the wrong format. I changed Parameter 19 bit 7 from 0-1 and it fixed my issue. It is now...

    Exactamatic Drill Sharpener ( Giddings & Lewis / Winslow ) HC

    First time posting on this site. I hope someone out there has an answer for us. We wanted to fix a stripped t- nut in the head of our sharpener. After removing the front timing plate off the head the nuts slide out no problem. EZ fix we thought. The tool holders slide into the head and lock...
