N/C over travel and home mods
« on: October 25, 2016, 06:57:20 PM »
  My coolant pump pooped out so I decided to do a mod on my N/C machine that I had been wanting to do. I put it off because I didn't want to void the warranty but thats long gone so I figured nows the time. When I get a new pump I'm going to do a mod there as well so I will be able to switch from food to air blast or mist so I will be able to run either one. And have it controlled by the program.
 Anyway I videoed the first step and uploaded it to Youtube I'll get it wired and post the out come when done.

Ok wired in the micro switch and tested it out to make sur it would repeat and worked like a charm. I did a short video of testing it.
