Posted in thread: Tips for Arduno software for Rotary Table Controllers on 12-02-2015 at 06:00 PM
Just to let you know I conected it up with a 24V PSU an MSD 415 Driver and a nema 23
stepper.Its working perfectly on both the Arduino Uno and also on the Arduino Mega.I know it
will mean hand wiring ...

Torfilli and Rod Thank you both so much for not giving up on me , I am pleased to say I now
have it working :D and also using Torfillis file I have modified it so the left keyboard button
now works gr...

Hi Torfilli , thanks for your help ,I'm sorry to be a nuisance but I think I may be going
insane ,( thats not unusual at my age )I removed my original liquidcrystal.cpp and replaced it
with yours that...

Hi TorfilliI too use a copy of a sainsmart LCD and my left button doesnt operate as it shouldI
had the same problem with Chuck Fellows code but easily found the line whereI could change the
ADC value ...

Thanks both for the excellent answers It was just after asking Rod if it was direct drive that
I felt a bit silly becauseI realised that with 90 : 1 on the RT . 10 micro steps and a 200 step

A quick question for rodwWhen you used your code with the 90:1 rotary table what gearing did
you use betweenthe stepper and the RT ? was it still 5:1 like Chuck uses or was it just a
direct 1:1 driveD...

Thanks Chuck and RODWI had worried about the torque needed for the higher gearing and also the
holding torque needed to stop the work backing up which is why I posted to ask advice but with

Hi ChuckI want to use your design as a simple dividing head but also use it on myrotary
table.Problem is its a 90:1 worm drive so with a 200 step motor thats far to many steps towait
for (18000).Can y...

Beautiful runner, I love engines that run slowly. You describe it as R.H. #3 , but I havent a
clue what R.H stands for .Can you enlighten me and also can you tell me where I might get hold
