Prior to 2006 the Element orange color was called Sunset Orange. For 2006 it's Tangerine Metallic.Doesn't those Honda elements come in metallic copper also? I think I remember seeing one.
A best friend selling modern CNC's called the shrouds, extensive chip guards etc "fenders". Not critical to efficiency like those on a Bonneville Salt Flats lakester; just pure cosmetic nonsense.I saw one of those MOOG mills get dropped while being loaded on to a truck. Underneath the very large fiberglass shroud (that disentegrated on impact with the truck bed) was a standard Bridgeport head. The shroud could have been 50% smaller and still covered the head.
What makes you think we need to be brought up to speed on an 18 year old post?Hi All
It will take an old guy to bring you up to speed on this. He is not around at the moment so I will step into his shoes. William Moog picked this color to match his 1965 Mustang. He wanted his machines to be quickly recognized in any shop that had one. The first CNC machine I learned on was this 83-3000 machine. I am from Buffalo, NY. Moog Valve is in a suburb of Buffalo. Ours had the ASCII tape reader/writer in it in the beginning. Memory space was a luxury back then. Our company also had a 5-axis Omni-Mill which also used ASCII tape. Maybe to stay compatible. The Omni-Mill was bought to do some of the operations on the Legendary ZL1 aluminum 427 Chevy engine blocks.
In another suburb of Buffalo was Moog Music. Inventor Robert Moog manufactured his music products at several facilities in the area. I do not think Robert and William Moog were related.
Gotta run. The old guy is coming.
What exactly are you doing ?18 year old post to start......out of how many threads, countless posts, by more than a handful of contributors. Of those, no two people have fully common interests, frame of reference, experience, knowledge, or train of thought.
What is common, plenty of 'Diamonds' willing to shit on those heads for tapping out a few words, that may have not occurred to them previously,or time to spend doing so.
Cancel culture may have ignited right here in PM. With almost exactly 13 years aboard, that's increased, noticeably.
It's the internet. Unless a moderator shuts off responses, the additional content is perpetual.
Shut off, thoughts permeate elsewhere.
