Taig ER16 tool change/pull

Tue, 08/08/2017 - 20:48
I don't work for these guys but I bought one of there tools and said I would give them a review. I got a er16 tool holder that would be similar to a Weldon shank tool holder but it has 6 set screws to pin the tool instead of 1. It also has a setscrew inside the tool holder to help set the tool length. I think if I got a few of these holders and preset some tools it could be like a poor mans atc for the Taig mill. The company is called GenSwiss. I think their tool holder will help me with tools pulling out of my er 16 collets, and presetting tool length offsets for many tools.

Help in getting a PC

Wed, 07/26/2017 - 15:27
I have a Taig mill with a Microproto 2000 HD/LE controller and need to get pc to run the mill using mach3.

I know the computer needs Parallel port or usb converter and must be 32bit.

Any help in picking a unit?

I did see some units on amazon that may work

I am restoring a Taig CNC mill I am not sure on the age of the mill. I have found a few minor problems so far. 1. Z lead screw bearings were bad 2. the z nut was the old style. These parts are on order for replacement.

I just removed the table and found some interesting patterns on the cross casting see pic’s some of it looks like the start of a center-less grinding pattern???


Has anyone seen this before.

Taig 2019CR ER16 CNC Mill Motor Intermittent Start Up Issue

Sun, 07/02/2017 - 11:59
I have about a 10 year old Taig 2019CR ER16 CNC Mill that I use for engraving text. After running it a while yesterday, the motor stopped and started intermittently. I tapped on the housing and the motor started up and ran for about an hour, then finally stopped again and would not come back on. This morning it came back on without issue. I know startup capacitors and relays go bad. Is anyone familiar with this issue?

Taig lathe drilling capacity

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 10:54
I'm hoping to make some wooden wind instruments that require a 1/2" bore to be drilled in hardwood end grain with a gun drill. Irrespective of the length of the bed, would it be asking to much of the power train to do this? I like the looks and price of the Taig, but I wonder if it's jist to small for me. Thanks!

Taig CNC vs Tormach 440

Fri, 06/09/2017 - 06:22
How do the Taig and the 440 Tormach stack up against each other as far as material removal? I kind of visualize both of them being truly hobby machines? Opinions please.
