    He's managed (so far) to avoid this one. Maybe he's wised up.

    After 22 posts, the non-participant is looking like the better man today.

    How long can he hold on though?

    I picture Roger Rabbit hearing "Shave and a haircut ............ "
    With steam pressure building.

    Used to get my hair trimmed by a happy young lady named Jessica.....

    I teased her about some JR connection.

    Then I apologized.
    "I know you are not a cartoon character. Sorry."
    "You are not drawn. You're just bad that way."

    she was fun to tease.

    Wondering who you mean, about the troll. Got some ideas anyways.
    I do heavy maintenance and own a SB, so I'm in the SB forums every now and then. Even though you don't see those projects here, I've made tools and parts for the guys at work (day job) every now and then. No use for a CNC in that line of work cuz yer only gonna make one part, and most of the time you don't have a drawing or anything else.

    Its kinda weird because if you ask anyone else, the boss man will say we don't have any machinists on the payroll. And technically, thats true. Everybody in my shop is just "maintenance" with various specialties they brought in.

    The forum troll has acted outside of this forum, has made death threats, and I will continue to shit down his neck at every opportunity. Best to be aware of who you decide to fuck with.

    we're so proud of him today.

    Maybe he is recovering from the current wave of covid... Then comes back with a vengeance...

    Subject:

    I went to a shop as a individual and repaired a Hardinge lathe brake. The owner's brother said for years the
    spindle brake did not work good. I asked him for a adjustable wrench and opened the access door. Ah ha.

    If I was a shop guy that didn't have time to dick around with machines and then there was the individual
    who has been in and out on the same machine for a decade. Who is going to be the listener?

    Yes donie .
    There is a lack of professionalism or respect.
    Park yourself as needed.

    Generally, professionals don't worry about what other people are doing, nor what everybody else thinks about them on a message forum. I find this sort of thread a bit counterproductive if you are trying to show professionalism...

    Gotta love the CNC vs manual divide. IMHO, a true machinist will be able to fix or make whatever is required of them, regardless of the equipment used. They should be able to take a print, or even take measurements off of a broken part and reproduce it on either. The most important tool should be between their ears. Though I will say learning the fundamentals on manual machines first,then taking the knowledge to the CNC is the best approach.

    Yes, its the piece of shit "termite" a professional writer, not a machinist at all! The termite has a pile of old junk machines, and is addicted to posting 24/7 on this forum. People are afraid of him for good reason, he will do anything to damage you, or your business if you cross him, he has full access to everyone information on this forum, and has helpers. He has been successful running everyone he wants off except me, a former Harley Davidson dealer, he seems to have hit a brick wall there! I ll Take a challenge from a Gym Shoes Geek anytime.

    The latest incident, a fellow buys a Monarch ee, and it has the vacuum tubes. He goes to the Monarch forum for advice, and gets bad advice, poor guy ends up damaging his machine from the hobby crowd worthless non sense, because the termite and the dickless moderator had run all the professionals off to make themselves look better. All that is left is people with the old old machines because the termite and his Monarch shit show cant afford good machines. They formed a serious circle jerk that will take a fire hose to break up!

    After reading this all I can figure is, paranoia. Seriously.

    Donie, get some help.

    Thermite is a pain sometimes but only mildly delusional.

    eKretz nailed it in one. The forum software has an "ignore list" function. In your profile, you click on "Edit ignore list" and simple add the names... reload your web browser, and you never see them again (unless you want to)

    I don't see how the type of machines you use has any bearing on how much of a machinist you are. That's like 10yo school kids arguing about who's better at kicking rocks in a concrete school yard.

    Now as for being a toolmaker...I know someone who can tell you if you are or aren't one
