Hi, Notewell48

The manual is in the file's section hear. You need to down load and
unzip it.

F5 is Position cursor with Z dimetion and angle.
Expl. Z=15mm, A=-35 Deg.(clockwise).

I have only comp. 5 cnc's, no PC5's.

Hope this Help's, Chip

CNC5 baord wanted

John <fik123@...>
 

I have sent my board i for new eproms but it has some other problems.
Does anyone have a CNC5 board any version?
I have the Eproms and daughter board I can put on it I just need a
board that works to upgrade?
I have other CNC5 and a few f-5 parts I can trade or buy it cash.
I also have a LOT of those tapes
I am slowly moving away from the CNC5 but I need to keep one going for
a while so if any of you can help me out let me know.
I bid on the one in England but missed it,
Thanks john


PC5CNC5 PRogram and book

John <fik123@...>
 

NOw I a don't know that they ever upgraded the manual.
I have two manuals here,
They say CNC5/PC5, and came tiwht the CADCAM software

Looking at the function tree(s) they do not appear different at all.
IF someone can guide me to the right page I will scan in the info for
you.
I lent the other copy out with the software and it might be the 2.8
manual people seem to be seeking?

I also have a Diskette here wth Dos Mouse driver on it and It has
always worked for me, even in EMCO!

I can copy it,zip it up and uplaod it,
but I have to advise you all.
The reason I ended up with the last softwre from EMCO is the original
diskettes they shipped had a Cmos virus and it never did get cleaned
off the originals.
IF Bill Anliker is still around he copied allthese once for me and
should be able to uplad a clean verison, he was able to get the virus
off when I couldn't,.

I also need a Motherboard.
Both of mine have Version four Eproms but some other bad chip that
won't melt them work, So I need any old board that works and I can
just pop my eproms on to it.

IF someone is a good pcb board mechanic and can fix one of these
boards I would trade the other set of Eproms to fix mine.
This is the last board I have with al the keys and it is locking up
the tape drive, monitor and turns the spindle on when it turns on??
IT is breaking donw is EMCOs diagnosis
So anybodt got a old board, any old board will do as I have the eproms

turret tool project

ssgt_schultz <jdowlen@...>
 

Subject: turret tool project

I am trying to duplicate the Emco CNC Turret tool. I need some basic
dimensions of the original turret tool in order to fabricate one. I
estimate that one could be built for less than $150.

The needed dimensions are:
Height, width, length and centerline of the Turret tool housing
All the dimensions of the tool holder.

Thanks

Here is the link to the cutaway drawing of the turret
http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/emcocompact5users/files/

It will be a lot of work to draw an accurate cad drawing and give
dimensions of all these parts,
depends on how accurate you want them do you want radii etc?

IF you just want "ruler" dimensions let me know,

Hmmmmm...
Must be the way I zipped it,
it runs fine from the floppy here I just installed it on a new
computer with dos 6.22 and it runs fine.
With bat files and config sys files no spam filter will let it send
or upload unless it is zipped.
I will burn a copy of floppy and mail it to someone and they can
upload it. I would likie to help but don't have time to make a big
project out of it.
LEt me know who is one trustworthy person to send this stuff to and i
wil send out a box of all kinds of good EMCO, D&M software,manuals
and other support stuff, when it is copied and uploaded I want it
back.
Not sure why I hang on to all this but IT is good to have when I want
to look something up. Manuals for C-5, PC5 CNC5, F-1 Mill, the
programing software, a EMCO tech manual.
BUT I really want to knw I am going to get it back.
I live in a small Alaska village and just don't have the resources to
copy and do al kinds of scanning.
So someone step up to the plate and I will load you up with plent of
archival material.
Thanks John


Re: turret tool project

ssgt_schultz <jdowlen@...>
 

I would like to have fairly accurate dimensions. Remember, the
Austrians use the metric system and usually have whole number sizes
like 40mm spacing on the mounting screws.......

I have seen the exploded diagram and that is where I am starting. The
first decision was to switch the worm and worm gear to English instead
of metric. This cuts the cost of those parts in half. Also looking
into a better tool holder design, but the engineer in me wants a good
drawing of the original one as a starting point (or is it a fall back
position?)

C5 Turret

capteod
 

I am also working on a replacement turret for the Emco C5 lathes. I
plan to use a Geneva Mechanism to ensure the locking of the turret in a
specific position and will not rely on the simplistic locking system
which EMCO designed. My plans need the critical dimensions of the
turret, and the height of the center of the rotating axis of the turret
axle.

I am a degreed mechanical engineer and a experience journeyman tool &
Die maker. My goal is a turret which will be rigid and work with
either servos or stepper motors in an enviroment what uses MACH3.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: C5 Turret

Thomas Seslar <rseslar@...>
 

These pictures are from an Emco PC-55 Turret I'm modifying for my PC-5.Same casting as the CNC-5 however there is an encoder on the rear of Turret housing and there are eight ratchet pawls for an eight position turret.I'll get you the turret centerline but I'm afraid I don't have the toolholder or turret itself.I'm building a new square eight position toolholder now modified to my own needs.I'm a retired toolmaker myself so any other diminsions you need on this assy are yours for the asking because I'm sure I will need assistance on the programing & setup.I tentatively intend to use a mach3 control upgrade also.Best regards.

Tool Turret drawings

John <fik123@...>
 

I am unable to post the drawings or photos of Turret,
HOw do I uplaod a file?






Note on my cross slide I milled away ¼" material on the left of the
saddle,where tool rotates. This allows me to use tooling that is
readily available, is indexable, cheap, AND it then will clear when
turret makes its rotation. Before milling this away some of the
tooling would catch, or the tool holder bottom would not clear. IF I
inserted the tool holder for tip t clear I had no height adjustment.
Finding the perfect tool holder was a long process. Making this
clearance bigger opened up a lot of tooling options for off the shelf
tooling. !/2" tooling!. Using Metric tooling almost doubles the cost
of a tool holder. I will try to send a photo of my tooling set up.
IF you don't make allowance for this clearance most tooling extends
so far they ""catch"" or you have a limit on depth of cut for
profiling. The saddle has plenty of material to mill away a ¼" and
still be stable. Providing clearance for a VCGT (35 degree diamond)
insert carbide tool. (you can find the geometry designations on
Kennemetal or Rouse Arno website). After this small modification I can
now set up the tool holder off the machine, and change inserts without
ever taking out the holder or losing centerheight postion.

Here is my method of setting the turret up for accurate center height.

Put a piece of ground 10mm stock in the collet (chuck if you don't
have a collet holder) Try to get it dialed in so it is running TRUE in
Headstock.
Jog tool turret to center line, with one of the 100mm tool holders
indexed into work postion.
Leave the turret bolts loose.
ManuallyJog in Z until the round stock slips into the tool holder.
With the bolts lose this will bring the tool holder into center line
for height.
Tighten the tool holder bolts on turret.
Jog off in Z
Change turret two stations so the next round hole is presented.
Jog in Z and the round bar should slip right into the hole.
Repeat for the last round tool holder of turret.
this will make all the "ROUND" tools on center line.
Then shim the square shank tools or mill some off the top as needed to
get them to center height.
Now all your tools will be on center line.

CNC5 Board wanted/ turret drawings etc...........

John <fik123@...>
 

Several people wrote they had a board, I had a system crasdh and lost
their emails.
IF you have a working version 3 boasrd you would like to se4ll please
write me 4d9r at alaska.net

Someone also wrote and we were going to collaborate on the turret and
possibly a board?
I will be IN albuquerque this Friday the 3 of March, then traveling
west to San Diego.
Depending on the schedule of my traveling companions I would like to
hook up up with other CNC5 fellers in between.
IF anyone on the lsit is in San Diego or close by I will be there a
week , would give me a diversion also?
IF YOU HAVE A BOARD or were the guy to work with on the turret Please
write again about boards and turret before Tuesday as I will be off
line until March 15.
Thanks john
