    Anyone running the "new" generation Milltronics

    The new generation of vm3018, vm3018il and the vm4222il look interesting. Anyone out there with some real world feedback? The IL series look to be a little more robust than the standard VM's.

    Shellcast in Montague Michigan. We have them cast some parts. They do stainless but not sure if they do your requested grade.

    Brother r650x2 pallet index question

    BrotherFrank, we've got the tool sorting macro installed already. The MID m code to bring up a tool will be handy for sure! Now we've just got to wait until a job that needs a mid program pallet swap to test out Matt's workaround.

    Brother r650x2 pallet index question

    BrotherFrank, Yes they are our dealer. Our 450 has some custom fixturing done by them. The 650 is replacing an old Chiron which is starting to show its age. Thanks for the tips on the magazine!

    Brother r650x2 pallet index question

    Matt and Wheelie, Thanks for the reply. I did a quick search but didn't see an answer. I guess if I would have scrolled down a little I would have seen your thread. We only have a couple of parts we'll have to use this workaround on. Most everything else will be able to run in a standard...

    Brother r650x2 pallet index question

    I have an odd question specifically for this machine. If one wanted to say, do some machining on a pallet then rotate it our to remove a clamp mid program and send it back in, is it possible to do this using only the pallet start button at the load/unload station? Our local distributor tells us...

    Brother BT30 basic machining parameters

    Well, now we'll just have to pause the vid and write down the metric standards and convert them while remembering that those are "optomized" for the video. Seriously though, machine is in place and wired. Waiting for a couple field options to be installed and initial commissioning Working on...

    Brother BT30 basic machining parameters

    I've seen a few threads with some 30 taper cut info but was looking to have a little more if possible. Just got a "new" 650 which will be primarily used in aluminum with just enough "steel" in the mix to say we do some. We have a 450 which is dedicated to one part in steel so our experience...

    Rustlick EDM-250

    Doing some pre-winter shop cleanout. We have some rustlick 250 EDM fluid. 55 Gallon barrel that probably has 35-40 gallons in it. I would venture that's it's 10-12 years old. If you can use it AND pick up in Kalamazoo, Mi it's all yours. I don't log in constantly so if you send a PM please...

    Anyone using the newest model of Phase Perfects?

    I, like I'm sure the OP is, am also wanting to hear some feedback from users. I have thought for years about going the digital route. There appears to be an upgrade in my future soon and some real world feedback would be great.

    Ballnut External Return Tube

    That's a lot smaller than what I could get my hands on. I wouldn't make them out of butter but there are steering boxes out there that have plastic recirculator on them. Like I said. There's no load on then once they are in the recirc. It's just there to get them to the other end.

    Ballnut External Return Tube

    What size are the balls and how "wide" does the recirculator have to be? There's barely any load on the recirculator. Can you find the right size tube and make your own? Don't split it. Harder to load but doable.
