You're very welcome sir,
I have just returned to running a couple of BP in our little finish mill / second op area after 2 1/2 years as the shipping and receiving guy. That was some real, thankless, BS.
I really missed the work and comming to PM and all that I have learned here from the fellas.
Does this work universally, or just very rigid machines?
I know you can only spin as fast as the machine, tooling, workholding and part will allow and that will give you a starting point on speed.
I have a bp clone with control to work with, nice machine... Ha Ha Ha, but get to 'help' on a new small Mazak VMC.
