    Spindle liners - 3D printed???

    A decent budget option for a newer style fdm printer is the Qidi Q1 pro. I got one a couple weeks ago as an upgrade from an Ender 3. Currently still at the launch price of $460.

    Need help with design and mfg of bayonet connector

    I wouldn't mind taking a stab at mocking it up in fusion360 and I could also 3d print a prototype. I run a 4 axis lathe at work too so If I'm able too I could make some parts.

    Spindle liners - 3D printed???

    I 3d print my own liners but I do a sleeve method. I use the common size 1in and 2in trusty cook liners and then 3d print sleeves that fit into those for the diameters I need. The material to 3d print one of those is probably around $20. I just got one of the newer style fast printers and I can...

    Live tool drilling with spindle.

    Thanks for the replies and discussion everyone. I think the issue was related to heat, I do not have a through coolant drill right now but I found the more I would baby it, the better the TIR would be. I ended up double drilling the hole using a 23/64 jobber into a 3/8 screw machine length...

    Live tool drilling with spindle.

    I follow the same rules when it comes to 90 spots. I didn't think about it walking on the bigger drills center. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Live tool drilling with spindle.

    Guess I'll explain my process. Although if someone has experience with turning with mill head drilling I'd like to hear your experience. I'm spotting 90 spotting into a 35/64 (.546) (90 spot leaves left over chamfer) to a depth of .750. Then coming in with a 3/8 drill to a depth of 2.17. Both...

    Live tool drilling with spindle.

    Fighting drill walking off center. In another post I seen a recommendation to drill with a live tool and have the spindle turn at the same time. What % of speed should each be doing? 50/50? I'm running a 3/8 HSS jobber drill into 8620.

    Materials Shape Process

    Figured I'd take a shot at helping you out. I am fairly new to Mazak controls and am learning on a newer style so I'm not sure how my knowledge would translate to those older controls. From what I understand your trying to material shape so you can start your boring process at x 1.25? Is that...

    How to use Haas coolant washdown hose?

    Huh, the VF2's I ran (newest one was from 2020) didn't need to have the door closed to turn on the coolant. Coolant should still come out of the back to help push chip toward the front auger like you said. Probably just a parameter you have to change.

    How to use Haas coolant washdown hose?

    There should be a valve up at the coolant ring around the spindle. Turn that valve to close off the coolant and then do exactly what you've been doing. Important note, once your done cleaning don't forget to turn that valve back open, it would suck to walk away after pressing the green button...
