KStep Debug and Repair

My spindle crashed and then wouldn't turn back on after the crash. (I suspect the crash was due to ESD problems -- where it crashed the dust collection hose brushed up against one of the unshielded end stops). I found the problem on the KStep board (transistor Q6), which I replaced with a regular 39...

Re: KMotion/KFLOP Test Version 4.35h Released

Tom, Thanks so much for posting these updates. It's nice seeing the new features, especially some of the probing features. I've been using v4.34 for a few years now, never knowing that there were later versions until last night. V4.34 is the latest version advertised on the main software download pa...

My other thought was to somehow update the tool length in the tool table and then force a reload of those values. I'm not currently using a tool table since I have an ER20 collet, but I ...

Automated tool change and touch off

I'm trying to automate my process a bit more. One thing I occasionally forget to do (not very often, but it has happened 3x now) is to zero off my new bit when I change tools. Adding this in to the gcode would force a zero every time. I'm using a script for tool touch off (modified version of Jeremy...
