Thought I would share some of this with you! This is the first time I’ve written a G71 code.

  1. I handled a similiar lathe as a demo. This was back in 1985. Writing g-code is like programming a computer in assembler — a royal pain. It is not as difficult as it is brain-consuming. Well done. I learned a few instructions and then said "if I have to I will learn this, but not otherwise." At that point in my life I had learned over 10 computer language and two assemblers. I thought that was enough. Today's interfaces make it easier, at the expense of learning the modeling software. "But that's idiot-proof.," you say. Oh no. That is an enormous underestimate of the number of idiots in this world.

  2. It's possible that the control was made by Beijing-FANUC Mechatronics, a joint venture of FANUC and the Beijing Machine Tools Research Institute.

  3. i remember my first cnc lathe, harrision vhs 450, fanuc control, think it was a fanoc 0 control, very old school but managed just about anything i could throw at it, brings back memories 😀

  4. It seems that the reality of life is that the majority of us have to work where we get the most money and not where we enjoy it the most. Of course if money is not a problem then you can work at anything or even not at all. =(;-)
