I think, Arie is using the 4th axis command to get the angles needed. No hard stops necessary.. Wink

Then, exactly, what was the issue with aligning it?  Was he just talking about X/Z alignment?  Really?  Really?

I assumed he ment mechanically aligning it in all axis.  I also answered the useage angles by suggesting an encoder with an index pin.

Aligning in this case: putting the 4th axis on the machine, and align it with the table, that's the easy one,

Then, Mounting the table, and setting it level..Getting the collet on the centerline, and setting my X0, Y0, A0 precisely centered with the collet, and the cradle perfectly level...

Next time i use the 4th Axis with the cradle, i only have to align the 4th axis.., then i know all the rest is set .

If I remember correctly (every watch I have made has such a hub) the hard part for these is catching the center for the 0.25mm dia hole for the second hand axle.
Great work!

The picture of the parts next to the matchstick reminds me of a video of the Davinci surgical robot used to remove my prostate. In the video the surgeon operates the grippers and picks up a piece of paper and proceeds to fold it into a perfect paper airplane. It is not until he sets it on a dime that you realize the paper was about 6mm square!
