Hi Colin - please try tiger12506's suggestion. The trouble is likely to be that in your setup the Multiplier calculation is:
Multiplier = (400 * 40) / 360 which works out to 44.444444
but the sketch is assigning that to an "int" (integer), so all it stores is 44. In bMac's original setup...
Hi Colin - can you link to the exact version of the Arduino sketch that you downloaded please? Happy to have a look and see if I can find anything.
Also details of your exact setup would be helpful!
Cheers - Andrew
Hi folks, at the risk of necroposting : regarding the problems that Edgar/reloader has been having...
"...to know its bug free now. "
Bloke I used to work with used to say "There is always one more bug!", and so it is with the RotaryTable11 sketch:

I have a silly question: do you really need a graphic LCD? Or is it just for the challenge?
Aside from that: generally when I'm trying to get "new" (to me) hardware working on Arduino, I start with a demo program - either one that cam with the libraries or something self-penned, but simple...
Not sure if this is of any interest to anyone, but: my latest version uses a 4 digit LED "Digital Tube", with my adaption of the original code from MacPod/Jeffrey Nelson on an ATtiny84 piggy-back board. Using this, I only need to mount the display somewhere, and attach one cable to either the...
Not too young to remember nixie tubes, unfortunately!
The "Digital tube" that I used can be found on eBay by searching for "D4056A".
Please be aware that this display is _not_ going to work with Jennifer's sketch which is posted above. It needs a different arduino library.
Hi again Jenny,
Regarding the name "digital tube", it's a bit misleading! It's just what the chinese ebayers call the 4 digit LED display. I've no idea why, as it's simply a 4 digit LED display with a TM1637 chip to make it I2C addressable. I guess it's intended for use in a clock, but in...
I did a similar display for and SC3 (and SX2P mill) and shared the design with a YouTuber called Andrew Whale. Here is the video he did about it:
Both of us used an Arduino Nano (clone) for it's small size, and a 4 digit "Digital Tube" display; but otherwise similar to yours. I...
I haven't actually fitted mine yet. The design I'm going to use is based on this:
This design also uses 30lbf struts.
How did you arrive at the 20kg?
Hey Dennis - You should be able to get some suitable gas struts in Australia from eBay, or StrutsAustralia.com.au or GasStrutAustralia.com.au
I bought a pair recently from eBay (seller: "aussie_living") for my Sieg SX2P.
The McMaster-Carr strut model mentioned above provides 15lbf each, 30lbf...
