Yes, 7 was my first version.
Tormach is very good to their legacy users like you and I. My machine is SN#225 and I think your # is lower than mine. I think if something went wrong trying to install it on a new OS, Tormach would take care of it somehow.
They used to hand these out at events, I got this one at a "CNC Workshop" in Michigan in 2010.
This is the only version my dongle will activate.
I am pretty sure the dongle is version specific and not keyed or ID'd to my computer. I have installed it on each new computer over the...
It is the one I got with the original software back in the XP days. But the dongle only works with the original "Demo" disk I got from Tormach.
When I built my new computer I downloaded a legacy version of SC7 and my dongle would not work. I had to find my original disk that came with...
Gorgeous as always !! Your fits and finishes are always a treat to see.
You have become very proficient at lying to sprutcam 😉 . I am still using version 7 and know all too well what you mean.
I still think the best part of your builds is your documentation, photography and willingness...
Very nice !
It sounds like the sand packs up as soon as it stops moving. Maybe feed the screw directly from your running cement mixer. Set up some sort of tilting device for the mixer so it will pour at the rate the screw can handle. This way the sand is always moving. Control the tilt and screw...
Sorry ,you do seem to understand :) I hope I did not come off as condescending :(
Do you know the pitch of the leadscrew ? and the tooth count of all the gears ? We can figure this out, it is just a matter of ratios.
My leadscrew is 8tpi. And the you can see my placards showing the...
It sounds like you did not change the idler gear from 40 to a 32 tooth.
On my 12x36 "Import" lathe to cut that range of threads requires a change of one of the 40 tooth gears to 36 tooth. See pic of my thread/gear chart.
Here you can see that the lower 40 tooth gets changed to a 32...
You can also use the formula for obtaining tap drill size and then divide by 2 to get single depth.
outside dia. of thread minus .01299 x percentage of full thread divided by threads per inch = drilled hole size
if we use 100% and skip the outside diameter we get
.1299x100= 1.29 dived by 26...
My father used to have a Palmgren 8" cross slide rotary table. They still make one Link to Palmgren table
Just a quick search for " 8" cross slide rotary table " Brings up several. They seem to range from about $600 to a grand - new.
If you can determine the country of origin it would help a...
