Hey Mark, (64) If you are using Vortex bits you should have them sharpen them. They include a label in the box when you get them. I do not sharpen mine (yet) so I do not have to worry about cutter compensation (yet). It just allows me to have piece of mind so my Operator does not have check the bit'...

Hey Thom, Have you solved this yet? If not I had the same issue with a long running tool. I use a 1/2\" PCD all day long and sometimes for days. It gets hot even though I have a good chip load. If it is a type writer type ATC then you may need to adjust the air pressure. Tech support can walk y...

Hey Geo, (178) Be very careful who's toes you step on especially when they (the toes and everything that is connected to them) could most likely be bigger than your's (toes), well at least 86 % of the time :lol: . If you look at Volume 1, #2 there are several \"Yankees\" on the cover, so i...

Hey Todd, Yes I know I have some limitations but I look at the advantages. I will have to run some tests when I get it up and running. I know that I have a 5x5 limit but I think I will even have to drop it down to 30\" x 60\" in order to use W as the slave head. As long as I can design my ...

Is anyone using the Dual table, Dual head on Control nesting

(Sorry if this seems like a dual post but had no replies in Ecab forum so I am trying here) Just wondering if anyone is using the Dual table or Dual head option on Control nesting with an Ecab job or DXF files. I am in the process of upgrading our C42 to have an ATC plate on the back of each table s...

Is anyone using a Dual table/Dual head with Control Nesting

Just wondering if anyone is using the Dual table or Dual head option on Control nesting with an Ecab job. I am in the process of upgrading our C42 to have an ATC plate on the back of each table so we can have 4 tools per head with 2 drills per head also. Our tables are 5 x 5 and we usually run them ...

Okay Dan here is my understanding. Since there is no \"w\" in the Polish language it would actually be pronounced Ko-voll-chek in Polish or Ko-wall-zick in English. You would not believe how many people get the case of the stutters when they try to pronounce my last name when they read it....

Re:

Dan,
I am still in Houston not in walking distance to Thermwood, Darn :cry: , If I were that close I probably wouldn't get as much done because I would be at the plant all the time :wink: .

So just remember, \"czyk\" is in Houston, Texas and \"chuk\" is in Dale, Indiana.

Hey George, I think you might be missing something very important from your pictures. Don't forget the Controller Cabinet. I'm sure that the layout is a work in progress but without the \"CNC Electrical Brains\" it doesn't make wood chips/dust, it just collects dust. Hope you get to plug y...

I am trying to keep the info in one area but I know that many do not look at both forums all the time so that is why I posted the link. The more details we have, the easier it will be and the mo...

Would a job report generator benefit you?

To all Thermwood CNC Owners, Managers, and et al, I asked Jason about having a report generator added to the CNC controller as an \"F\" key or a pull down menu function and he said it can be done and has been for a few special requests but I think it would benefit all of us. Whether we are...

Ken, Thanks for the quick reply. Glad to hear it is still possible. After seeing the video, my jaw dropped and I said WOW! That would make it SO MUCH more cost effective to run parts on it, for me at least, so that the time the CNC's are running we are getting the optimum hourly rate and producing m...
