Can you just tell us what you want for it?
I use these every day and I have tried the retrofit route, personally I
prefer to just buy a new machine if it is in working condition and
scrap oput the ones I wear out, let some of theother guys retrofit them.
I make parts not machines and I love it that the control and lathe are
all one unit.
So if it really is in good condition, is all the same generation ont a
mish mash of stuff please tellus your price and one of us wil buy it
thanks JOhn

I have one each of every board except a spare MK4 motherboard which I
need.

Someone else wrote and asked me to send them the back panel and I
apologize but I lost the address, it is sitting there boxed up, Spombo
please send me your mailing address so I can get this 0ut of here

Re: stepper wanted

John <fik123@...>
 

I have a spare stepper motor. IT is a little sticky, but runs. I think
if it was oiled or run for a while it wil be fine, you can have that
one for free.
I also have one more that is NEW. I bought one from emco and found out
it was a bad wire so I never did chnage it.
I b0ugt two lathes direct from EMCO years ago and when they quit
supporting them I bought up a bunch of spare parts.
So IF you buy one motor I will give you the toher for luck.
$100 plus shipping

Programming partial radius with M99

mustgofast2002 <marcus@...>
 

Hi All
Searched through full list of previous messages regarding use of M99
for partial radius turning with G03 or G02. Found nothing that
explained to me as a new user how to use the M99. The manuals found in
the files section and those I got withthe machine do not mention detail
of the required code set up. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

NC Cam, NC Tool Path

mikkojay
 

Hello,
I recently acquired a compact 5 and an F1 at a university auction.
The machines came with a couple of manuals. One of them says, "EMCO
CAM" on the cover, and looks like a manual for a program called NC
Toolpath. The manual is from 1986, and it says that the program is to
be run from MS Dos. There are two 5 1/2" floppies in the back of the
manual. I will need to root thru my junkpile to see if I still even
have one of those drives!
Anyway, I am mainly interested in hooking these machines up to a
modern PC to transmit the gcode. If anyone has ever heard of this
program or has had any luck getting one of these to "shake hands" with
a PC via the serial port, please let me know. The machines that I
bought came wih 25 pin cables, so I know it must be possible. I write
VB & COBOL code for a living, so I am also looking into writing my own
interface program, once I figure out the details.
I will post an update when I get a chance to read the manual in depth.
Thanks, Mike
Omaha, NE


Re: NC Cam, NC Tool Path

Seems like this board is dead- not a whole lot of activity!
Anyway, I have decided to not pursue the DOS stuff and do it myself.
I ended up writing my own G code editor in VB6 that saves files off in
the proper format to be transmitted to the Emco. I used an MSComm
control to talk on com 1 at 300 baud. I am still tweaking the editor-
it is very similar in the look/feel of the Weledit program. I am still
tweaking it, but it does work. The next thing I want to add to it is
the ability to evaluate the code and draw a simulated toolpath. That
will take a little experimentation. I entertained the idea of
completely gutting this machine with modern controllers & servos, but
now that I can edit/save things on my PC, I think this will work.
See Ya
Thanks, Mike

Hi, Mike

This board is a overflow for emcocomp5users group for the most part.

I see you got it going If you look in the file's section under comp. 5
cnc you will find a file called NCLINK Free It's windows based NC
editor will serch and replace and has a lot of features.

Just been side tracked with work and stuff.

Thank's chip
