First time trying to use rigid tap on my ST-10.

Post is outputting a G32, we need a G84.

Anyone know what to change in the post? I did not find a switch anywhere, I was hoping it would be that simple...

Any help appreciated.

Dave

Dave,

Typically, I take the ptap out of a milling post and set it up, a couple of variables may need to be altered but that's the gist of it.

If you want to send me a z2g I have some time today, I'll alter it and send it back to you

Which post do you have, MPMaster ? Do you want to make the Mods yourself or for anyone of us to do them here.

I'm using the Haas SL 4X post. I have made modifications myself in the past but only under adult supervision :D.

John I sent you an e-mail, thank you again.

I don't have it in front of me but it was something like search for "canned cycle" "Tap" or try "G32". There should be an area where is talks peck cycle g81, and tap cycle G32. Then I think you needed to change the feedrate letter from e to f and I think you also need to take out a line like pl_peck. Im trying to help out as best at I can but I have been locked out of work for 2 weeks now because of the govt shutdown so I can't take a look at my post.
