Haimer Repair & Vise Jaws Part 1

Doom, Haimer Repair & Vise Jaws Part 1

Things that happen when machining. Haimer 3D probe repair. Machining some softjaws.

My first week experience with the Haimer 3d Universal Probe did not go great. With in 30 minutes I had broken a tip. A few days later while running a part the probe fell from the BT40 ATC pot and damaged it. I contacted the manufacture and was advised repairs were not possible. No parts other than the probe tips are available.

At this point the expensive indicator was a door stop so I decided to disassemble it. I began assessing the damage, zeroing the indicator via 4 grub screws, and clean up of the rubber boot ring. I used my lathe to check out the probe position and accuracy. It now works just fine.

Home Shop Garage VMC Machining.

Home Shop Garage VMC Machining.

Home Shop Garage VMC is machining parts. I did some test cuts and rigid tapping in 6061. I purchased a used mill and moved it into my home shop. So far, the mill is in good condition and making tolerances on parts. It has taken some time to go from an older HAAS control to the Fanuc OM control.

TI Stepper Drivers DRV8818 and DRV8824

I’ve been working on a XMOS CNC controller board and in the process came up with two prototype designs using two different Texas Instruments stepper driver IC’s. The DRV8818 and the DRV8824. ┬áBoth of these ended up being able to control the NEMA 17 steppers for RepRap and the NEMA 23 for my small CNC router .
