I guess I could hack my way through it, or at the very least bribe me EE friend with a case of beer to do it for me. I simply thought to try your board out in my 220P and things are more attractive to me when I can buy the package complete. I understand that it might even sound a mite whiny ( given the nature of the forum ), but keeping the shop running and customer parts shipping leaves my desire for for hacking through electronic adventures lower than they used to be. :unsure:

totally understand, but tome is the one who designed the pcba, Im just building a copy. Im an ME by trade so this is my first adventure into a pcba. It has taken a while to get to this point, if I were a working shop it wouldnt have been worthwhile so I totally understand. I could do one for you at some point in the future but I would want to get you something better than I can offer right now.

As I understand it I can cycle the toolchanger with the Toolerator3000 by pushing the snap switches?.


Yes IIRC, one switch moves the turret until you push it a second time, the other moves it to the next tool position.

wooohooo Toolerator3000 worked the first try. I ran it without the toolholder plate first to make sure the direction it turned was correct. Then put on the plate and cycled it with the button closest to the arduino connectors. Im excited as this was the only worrisome part of the emco conversion. :) :) :) :) :)

Hello,

Do you sell the PCB, as I want to convert my Emco Turn 120 to this system.

Thanks in advance,
Berry
