Milling machine vfd
« on: July 28, 2021, 06:37:37 PM »
Only took 3 years, but its working.
Drives a powtran p160 vfd. Which drives a top tech dm15 6x26 mill.
Ive also allowed for future x drive with separate forward reverse speeds and auto return.
Now to install the z axis dro scale.

Then fix the lathe drive which died.
Then the welder which died.

Cool.  :beer:

Putting a 3 axis DRO and VFD on my 7045 manual mill was the best thing that I ever did for that machine. Having infinite spindle speed across all 6 gears is great.
