Going to be making some real shit now.
Quick back story, this fell into my lap, and now I gotta getting running. It is a Denford Triac PC CNC with automatic tool change. Super Excited! If all goes well, I will be spending less time in front of the Manual Mill and more time In front of the computer.
First thing is trying it with the OEM software, getting a feel for the machine and the conditions of the Steppers, sensors and such. Once I feel like I’ve top that out, I plan on going with a modern interface Upgrade allowing for much more fun, geckodrive or something similar.
The end goal is to get it upto a 4th Axis (powered rotory table), and after if it makes sense, a 5th (powered tilting action of the rotory table)
