    ^^^ I assume Mike was talking about the sizes of parts that Dave makes OTHER than the three he described.

    Dave laid it out there pretty well.............
    Yes, I had read it, several times in the past week. I knew those sizes but did not make clear I was thinking about future plans as well. Although I don't know what size fixtures he has in mind.
    Why would you assume a negative situation? I will admit that I still suffer occasional chemo brain, even though it's been a few months....
    I'm going to go out here and say there are just times you feel the need to be snarky, a PITA. Does it make you feel superior?
    Okay, you're perfect, and superior in all things.
    Thanks so much for your contribution.

    Thanks you, I was indeed thinking general picture.

    I am far from superior. Quite average or below actually. Having said that (and I hate having to defend myself)

    You said, and I quote: "Not knowing the size of your parts" and that was all you said.

    You did not say: Not knowing the size of any of your other parts.

    Rather than us assume the latter, why didn't you just say it?

    So I was looking over volume of parts for this customer............I make 37 different part numbers. Most are families of similar size and shape. Only 3 are strictly milled parts. A handful, about 1/3, are only turned. The rest have both mill and turn features. Parts range from 1"Ø 1045 up to 4" Ø 6061. I made them close to 47,000 parts in 2018............... Holy crap. No wonder I had no time for anything this last year.

    They are a good customer. Pay like clockwork and offer some flexibility on deliveries. I think a meeting may be in order with the owner....................

    What says that the parts where you turn them and then mill them need to be done that way? I'd rather mill everything if you can get away with it and have no flipping between parts. A small horizontal would be a lot cheaper than a multi spindle / multi turret lathe, a hell of a lot easier to move into / setup and get a lot more parts done with less fucking around if you can make the parts fit.

    "Mill all the parts"

    What you are describing is a lights out wet dream for a multi-spindle live tool lathe. You could even bar feed or gantry-load the parts that are only milled. Gantry loaders are cheap.

    That said, I saw Tsugami had a competing (but not as good) product at IMTS this year.
    Funny enough we have a fabrication cell so I built our rear eject setup with some 0.090" 5052, the shear/brake, and the TIG!

    I meant real automation, not just ejection. I'm talking counting parts, stopping the machine if no part is detected, separating parts into lots for QC purposes, sometimes even checking parts for you. But mostly I was just busting your chops for fun, you've got a nice machine, and I'm glad you're enjoying it.
