    yes they are especially on those old numeric controls ( you remember the big 2 foot wide by 5 foot tall controls) that were on the old big H.E.S. machines. Then re retrofitted them to Fagor controls and the owner insisted on still using the old style g50s.

    My comment was related to the use of G92, which is the alternate, equivalent to G50. Accordingly, its irrelevant whether the control uses G92, or G50 to set the Coordinate System. Most of us have progressed past the use of G92/G50 where the control is equipped with Workshift Offset programming. As you say, KISS.

    C'mon dude.... try using a wire edm. Everything is out the window then, easy (for me as I have used them forever), but get a "strictly" mill/lathe/multi guy and see how fast they get it...

    Yeah, you can't really be serious. Sinkers can be a little tricky knowing the condition and requirements and making custom electrodes, but Wire???

    If you have to deal with a 30+ year old Fanuc wire and a PC based Chinese Moly wire then you realise that standing behind the VMC is your happy place

    I'm sure that's true. But the statement can be seen from both sides. I could be standing in front of the Bandit I, wishing I were standing in front of a Sodick.
