    I'm likely the last person on the planet to learn this "trick," but I find it really useful for measuring parts:

    I use that one a lot. If you have TSC after you hit cycle stop..Z hand jog..You can turn the TSC on or off buy just hitting the AUX cool button. Otherwise If you forget the M88(on) in your program you can't turn it on in the middle of a program.

    Another one I haven't seen posted yet.

    During a canned cycle like drilling for example: if you hit single block the machine will stop. Leave single block on & hit cycle start it will finish that hole and then stop once the hole is finished. It's very usefull if you need to clear a birds nest off the drill.

    Talking Good one

    When chips get tangled aroung the chip auger and just spin with it. I crush a couple of aluminum soda cans flat and toss them in. The auger catches the can and drags all those chips right off. That way I do not have to take a hook and pull them off.

    When switching from one material to another, after I've cleaned everything out. I'll throw a few rags into the chip auger. That helps with the switch from stainless to aluminum, or whatever. Once you see the rags you switch over to a different can for recycling.

    It is a typical rookie mistake not to check the date of the thread, I think i did it early on too.

    Welcome to the forum Thx11382000 and keep on posting and reading. Enjoy the site.

    Who really cares about the age of a thread. Does a very useful golden nugget of information ever time-out! I am glad people share regardless of age. I think such comments intimidate some from posting useful information and we all loose. Criticisms about redundant posts, jumping into the middle of a thread , or thread drift are valid but simply focusing on age and ignoring valid content is snobbish.

    G10 is not fool proof. It can still kill you if you are not careful.
