    Camworks/solidworks cam in person help/zoom?

    I’m completely new to CAM/Cnc and am trying to learn solidworks cam that comes with solidworks so that I can use the haas vf4 I just bought. I’ve done a bunch of tutorials but really learn best by talking with someone. Is anyone in the southern New England are willing to provide some support...

    Welding and fixture tables.... was getting ready to order this one but

    I don’t know how anyone could compare these to an acorn or t slot table, the only similarities are they are both flat. After that there is about 100 years of improvement. I have a 1m x 1m and 1.5m x 3m Bluco with a fairly complete tooling package and just love them both. The best part of the...

    WTB Cnc bed mill

    Seeing if anything else has come up. If narrowed my search to a 60” x with a tool changer. And prefer something 10 years old or newer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    Yeah, I think I’m just chasing my tail on this one. I’m one step above a hack trying to figure out what’s wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    Spindle. Runout is the same, no matter how the tool holder is clocked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    I can definitely do that, but I dont see how that can be affecting my run out issues in a static position. I have 2 tenths at the spindle and 3 thou at the tool holder with no load applied. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    I just bought and tooled up a Fryer MB-14 as my first CNC. I’ve been chasing a run out issue and it’s driving me mad. We are getting 0.003-0.004” runout at the tool and our surface finishes are horrible. The machine is from 2003 and is in what appears to be decent condition with the exception of...

    Marvel Old 8 blade tension?

    The pawl is the little cylinder to the left. You should just turn the tendon shaft until it drops down and stops moving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can you recommend a metal finishing machine?

    I’m sorry, but I think what you are asking for does not exist. There are timesavers and debuting machines for flat goods but not much for 3D objects. I wonder if just a sand blaster conveyor would work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Looking for onsite training with Anilam 3000 control (RI)

    We are an architectural fab shop that has been running manual machines up until this point. I just purchased a 2003 Fryer MB-14 with an Anilam 3000 control, while I have zero CNC experience I have a basic understanding of the concepts. I’m hoping that there is someone in southern New England who...

    WTB Cnc bed mill

    As I’m looking at machines that I can easily get into my building for machining long parts, I’m looking into open bed mills as an option. I’m looking for a mill with 40-60” in x and hopefully a tool changer. Somthing like a Milltronics RH-20 or RH-30 would be ideal. Located in New England would...

    Wanted - 10" id Tubing

    I could 100% roll some 1/2 x 2 flat bar to a 10” diameter but it sounds like the recommendation for the 10” schedule 40 plié should do the trick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6k vs 10k spindle on haas tm2p

    Im totally new to cnc, and am coming from Bridgeports, so please excuse the ignorance. Ive narrowed down machine choice to a tm2p mostly because of getting it into my shop and it has the 40" x. We machine long thin parts in both 304 stainless and 385 brass. Because of current 40 week leadtimes I...

    Wanted: Haas tm2p

    I want to buy my first CNC and a TM2P seems to give me the most x axis in the smallest package as I’m limited in 76” wide entry into my shop. I’d buy new, but haas is 40 weeks out on these smaller machines. I’m looking for newer well optioned mills with ridged tap and chip auger at a minimum...

    Will I be frustrated with a Haas TM2?

    Thanks for all the reply’s. I think I’m going to move forward with a tm2p as it sounds like it will do what I need and will be a good machine to learn CNC on. Now I just need to find a used one as haas is quoting a 40 week leadtime. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Will I be frustrated with a Haas TM2?

    I’d buy a large VMC in a heartbeat, but I have a serious limitation in access to may space. I have 13k square feet in an old New England mill but my only door is a measly 76 x 96 roll up. The way the space has been built up over the last 100 years does not allow for me to open up anything...
