Mori Seki SL1 NC lathe programming

Tom, Unfortunately I did not know that I was having trouble and just thought the machine was not recognizing the G50 command. I am using
Bob Cad/Cam and they have a post for the Yasnac 2000B. Hopefully that post is compatible and will speed me along.
Thanks again, Keith

Kieth,
Don't worry about the G50 input, things like that happen.
I don't know Bob CAD/CAM so when you post machine code from it send me a private email with the code & a copy of your drawing or sketch attached and I will be happy to look it over and check it for you. Sometimes it helps to have another set of eyes checking the work till you get error-less code to the machine.

Thanks Tom, as soon as I get the adapter made for the drawtube, receive the hard jaws and get ready to try to cut I will send.

We owned a couple of those old dinosaurs. One thing I remember is the X values are all negative. For example: turning an 8 inch diameter would be X-80000. Trailing zeroes, no decimal. I also remember the square, white buttons popping of at will. Heavy duty machines, we did a lot of hogging with them.

Dale,
You just had to do it didn't ya, LOL, ya had to give Cliff a little more information.
Cliff didn't know the controller ignores + or - signs when programming SFM. He thought if it had a program point of X-.030 when you approach X.0 and pass it to a X- value that the machine would stop and reverse spindle.
I don't want to clue in the clueless but maybe he should note that as the tool approach;s X0.0 that the spindle speed is already clamped by a G50 S value input or the machine's max RPM.
Think how surprised he will be when someone lets him know there is NO G40, 41 or 42. Oops, did I say that? Now there are more cats out of the bag.
LOL, Tom
Although I may have given him too much information already to the point he can BS his way through it, I Still am waiting for Cliff's;
"Clueless, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Center-line Programming, Cross Post to alt.everybody, Best Practices, New Paradigm, Seamless, I'm Smarter than you, Unified Hybrid, Solid Modeling, NON-GIBBSCAM, What kind of scrap do you make, Point and Click, TNR, Known Datum, Operator Hair Pulling, Parallel to the Axis, Contact Point, Some Just Can't Understand, No kludge, Offset Curve, Desired Contour, Anti-Neocon, Anti-Winger, OT, Programmer Confusing, I Need the Manual, Tried Google, Where's JB, Found WMD Yet, Its not my fault I blame in on my Parents, G50 calculating method" step by step instruction post.
LOL, Tom
