A brother label writer.. It isn't the best - The clear coat seems to like to peal off after a while. On the K&T we used electrical numbering stickers and then clear heat shrink over that. That worked the best IMHO.

simple program with rigid tapping. (didn't have time to try it in metal)

What do you use to label your wires? It is retractable tube with printed labels? If so, how do you do it?
That machine is quite a good machine. Congratulations.


I use Brady heat shrink labels and they are permanent as I am.

The spindle taper has 30 years of wear - a 6 inch tool was around .006" out. So - we didn't have much to lose ;)

Now it is around .0005" at 6 inches.

(the dremel was the only thing that would fit up the BT35 taper) - that we had anyway



We also took added about .0015 shim between the 2 ball nuts on the Z axis.

Almost done... maybe 90%. Still need some i/o hooked up for over-currents and lube level. Some tweeking of the tool change so that it can fail gracefully.

I see you did a spindle regrind, how did you align the Dremel to the taper?

really no alignment other than making sure it clears the whole way in.. The matsuura was doing the taper by moving z and y coordinated.

edit - after that we blued it to check fit. Looked good.

Good Day ,Sam
Your matsuura is looking neat, is the monitor a touch screen, where did you fit the pc ?, on the console is that a mpg for each axis?, has the Ethernet has been difficult to implement?. pardon the many
I have a matsuura with brain dead fanuc m6 control and your machine setup really looks the answer.

Nice job on the retrofit. I am going to begin mine in the next week or so. I have a 1982 MC-500v showing up Tuesday of this month. The MX1 controller will not function properly so retrofit it will be.

I will start a new thread, but wanted to let you know that I like what you have done.
