I bought a VFD and a 3-phase motor to update my semi-crappy lathe.
The VFD supports a jog function and the way I'm going to use it is to have a switch for JOG on the control panel and then (in JOG mode) the Run switch moves the motor at a very slow rate until the Run switch is released.
I never saw a lathe that had a Jog feature. How do they typically work? Do you press the Jog button and it moves, or is it more like in mine?
Jog seems useful. Never having seen it, I would guess a Jog button with "move while pressed" would be the way it should work, but can't see any way to make that happen with the capabilities of my VFD.
Just curious how it normally works.
P.S. I probably wouldn't even have asked this question but the content of this group is verging on spam. At least I made an on-topic post.
Geeze, is there any way to get it back to having the majority of posts with some metal content? A little bit of Off-Topic is ok but I find myself wading through the subjects and deleteing 80% or more without even the slightest desire to read them.
