    Lathes are turning in the shop. The mill not so much.

    It's all good. I haven't been turning alot and I like doing it. It's fun learning new stuff. This old okuma really is getting me. It's amazing how smart this old control is. I love the igf programming.

    Not been to busy in the shop the last few weeks. Only a few small jobs.

    I got to make 360 of these small pistons. It's dreadful and repetitive but it's a job. My little machine shop in Denmark - started Dec 2018.

    Been kicking in doors looking for new customers.

    I really want some more jobs with some meat on the bone. Had one job a few weeks alot with alot of stainless parts that needed to be machines on the lb15.

    All the best. You have done what I have always been too scared to do - take a chance.

    ok so i ran into the first real machine problems... some funny stuff about the card that controls the rs232 to my okuma started friday morning..

    and trying to fix it i had to turn on and off the machine alot.. that resulted in the screen not turning on later the day..

    i need it up and running asap because i got a job that need to be done fast and i cant make it on the other lathe since i dont have a 3 jaw chuck for that... and the parts are ø90mn..

    frustration is big.. i would hate to have to tell the custemer that i cant make the deadline..

    Ah,how I miss the joys of owning my own business!....Not really.
    Hang in there, as long as the benefits exceed the aggravation it's all worthwhile.

    Hey guys.. a small update.

    After a week of repairing the okuma lathe its up and running.. i replaced the communication card and put in a LCD screen. and now its running like a champ and a big plus is that i dont have to wait 30-60 mins for the screen to boot up in the morning in the cold months..

    big plus is i am very busy with work right now. right now i got work for the next two weeks almost.
