Tailstock motion is defined by three settings:

  • Hold Point (Setting 107): The point at which hold force is applied. No default value. This setting has a negative value.

  • Advance Point (Setting 106): The distance from the hold point through which the tailstock moves at feed speed. The value is relative to Setting 107, and contains a default value that varies by lathe model. This setting has a positive value.

  • Retract Point (Setting 105): The distance from the advance point through which the tailstock moves at rapid speed. Value is relative to Setting 107, and contains a default value that varies by lathe model. This setting has a positive value.

Settings 105 and 106 have default values based on the lathe model. If desired, enter new values in inches (when Setting 9 is INCH) or millimeters (when Setting 9 is MM).

note: These settings are defined relative to Setting 107, and not absolute machine position.
note: Settings 105, 106, and 107 do not apply to the ST-10 tailstock, since it is positioned manually.

Be aware: Many service and repair procedures should be done only by authorized personnel. The service technicians at your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) have the training, experience, and are certified to do these tasks safely and correctly. You should not do machine repair or service procedures unless you are qualified and knowledgeable about the processes.

Danger: Some service procedures can be dangerous or life-threatening. DO NOT attempt a procedure that you do not completely understand. Contact your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) and schedule a service technician visit if you have any doubts about doing a procedure.
