    If your on this site you (should) already know what an inclusion is.
    The problem is the metal man in China sweeps the junk off the floor into the crucible before pouring. And Slag? “That’s floating money, don’t remove it”

    Yeah that happens with anyone, crap happens and no one is perfect. I’ve drilled into hard spots and seen inclusions in broken cast grain.

    Wait until you get a cast iron engine block with a carbide SNMA-544 in it.
    The ultimate toolholder.
    Took out over $30,000 in tooling and blocks in under 10 seconds. Machine never flinched or slowed at all but did make some real noise.
    This all USA cast material for something called a small block Chevy.
    Seen almost as bad in cranks from here and Canada to this day so this not a "China only" floor sweeping problem and such thinking I view as rather silly.

    Should mount the engine block on the spindle as your new fly cutter!

    "It’s like some of you can’t read, I’m amazed you guys can write a response at all with your heads so far up your rear."

    About what I'd expect from you, was the BRAND of machine his QUESTION????????
    Your'e the one who can't read. You and your flogging the rules ALL THE TIME!

    Are you that kid in kindergarten who kept running up to the teacher and telling on the rest of us? If so then you are your own worst enemy. In fact I've only seen one or maybe two inputs by you that actually addressed the OP's question, this was NOT about brand, it was about hard spots in cast iron.

    “In fact I've only seen one or maybe two inputs by you that actually addressed the OP's question”

    How many times should I address op’s question master?

    I didn’t report anyone bud.
    I was never the teachers pet, quite opposite in fact.

    Follow the rules or the whole site goes to shit.
    I didn’t make the rules BUD.

    You like it here right?

    Welll this place is what it is for a reason, RULES.

    We can all turn a blind eye to shit now and again, but these imported junk machines are not welcome here PERIOD.

    Run a stop sign and call the cop who catches you a teachers pet.

    Run a stop sign and call the person you hit a tattletale.

    YOUR what’s wrong so

    LEAVE
    YOUR

    EMOTIONS

    AT
    THE
    DOOR
    KID.


    AND I QUOTE

    “The discouragement of HSM grade Asian machine discussion is partially because they have all ready been discussed to death here, and partically because they are not used (or at shouldn't be) in any manufacturing/job shop envirnoments.

    For these machines, there are other sites such as the HSM Magazine forum, Chaski forum and various Yahoo Groups that are more appropriate.

    ========================

    UPDATE-

    Also not allowed for discussions on PM now-

    *Atlas/ Craftsman/Dunlap products - anywhere

    *Sherline and Taig - anywhere, including CNC versions

    *Hacksaws- anywhere

    *Horizontal shapers - Antique Machinery forum only”

    - MILACRON the freaking CREATOR

    Here’s a violin for your tears chump.

    Hacksaws are certainly allowed since they are used everyday for one off jobs. It is power hacksaws that are banned since they have been replaced by reciprocating saws and bandsaws.

    Look at how so many threads spiral into a shit show. It's poor moderation, and it's going to be...er will be the demise of this site. Almost every day there are threads started that just make me shake my head.

    Agreed, but we can try to save it. I think it’s worth trying, this is the only forum I’m a part of that I care about at all, it’s the only forum I check.

    We can't change what the site owners refuse to change.

    I try to understand what the question is, which had absolutely ZERO to do with the brand name.

    Add an off topic and politics forum, they can be made so they don't show up in searches.

    Better moderation, most of the forums are either moderated by milacron or by someone who hasn't been on in years...in the case of metrology, it was moderated by a delusional megalomaniac, go figure. Many of us have offered to help as we have experience over the years on other sites with moderation/admin roles. Most never even receive a PM back.

    I'm at the point where I will give advice when needed but I'm not going to write some dissertation for a schmuck who just started welding and thinks he has a clue but has less than zero. Same for edm and machining.

    Who’s the schmuck that just started welding that thinks he has a clue but has less then zero?

    The OP's hard spot sounds very hard indeed.

    I thought as an experiment I'd try drilling through something hard, a file, with a 10mm masonry drill.

    I treated the tip to a few strokes of a diamond file to give it a sharp edge and a bit of a clearance angle, and it went through, although I did have to address it with the diamond file part way through, as it started getting very hot indeed. I used the lowest speed on my machine, 500 rpm.

    Homebrew, you don't understand the New Deal.

    The New Deal is simple - if you don;t like the rules, you start whining and pissing your pants. Then, you go forth with the assumption that the rules suck, we all know it, and we all want the rules changed in our favor. We begin by ignoring the rules and placing the burden of drying our wet pants on someone else. Finally, we call anyone who doesn't take our side a homophobe, uneducated, misogynist, or a Fascist. Then....we roll out the big gun - we call them a racist!

    So the next time some dumb-ass who's working ion his piece of shit posts in clear violation of the rules.....just ask yourself if it really isn't just shining a light on racism.
