Krlynn did you ever get your tool changer to function?
Do you know what the approximate center height is?
Would you be willing to sell it in its current configuration?


I did not get it to function, but that's due to the fact I never really undertook the effort. Manual tool changes better suit my use.

Emco Compact 5 center height is 65 mm, I think. But I'm not sure that answers the question you have in mind with reference to the turret.

I probably should sell it, but don't intend to. As soon as I did, I'm afraid I'd regret it.

Krlynn thanks for the quick reply. The 65mm center height would require me to machine a new holder/disk. If you decide to sell it let me know.

Thanks,

these toolchangers are very easy to interface with linuxcnc , just follow the same addons as i did for the denford orac , it uses the exact same toolchanger , they tend to machine a plate for the bottom as a 6mm spacer , to obtain the centre height required
as it's a seperate plate it sometimes becomes lost , but easily replaced .

Will do, or will post here to let you know if I hear of one that might be available. When they show up on eBay, they seem usually to go for close to $450-500. Mine has 6 positions. There's a closely similar model with 8 positions. I rarely see that one turn up, though.
