    They are grinding wheels for internal grinders, such as Heald and Bryants. Norton made all the ones I had, they came six or twelve to a box, depending on size, and all different shapes and compounds....

    Okey-dokey. But I think the thing that is missing from so many people's discussion is, Russia was a "failed state" loooong before it became communist. The tsars were total assholes, for a few short...

    As a side note, "the pandemic" has had absolutely zero effect on shipping for anything we have done in the past eight months.

    The only effect the pandemic has had on supplies appears to have been...
  4. I don't entirely agree with this part. US...

    I don't entirely agree with this part. US products were totally competitive with Japanese and German products, in many cases better. The government and people who pull the levers decided, through the...

    Already moved past that. Smaller cities don't make as much, you're right, but on the other hand, a small 2 bedroom apartment in the outskirts of Shanghai sells for two anda half million US now.

  6. Almost. You're supposed to use the QR code to...

    Almost. You're supposed to use the QR code to view the menu and order, while the waiter/waitress stands across the room and scratches their ass. You're also supposed to pay that way.

    It's...

    It's not a part, that's the grinding wheel. The dresser will put that shape o the front. I never bought any for mine cuz it came with several boxes, but they look a lot like I.D. grinding wheels. I'd...

    Oh you poor baby. Let's all have a group hug for GregSY.
  9. Has nothing to do with wages though. That's a big...

    Has nothing to do with wages though. That's a big thing here, too, where the counter people make $250 a month and the owner drives a Bentley. Literally.

    Greed, my man, for lack of a better word,...

    ^ Looks like Gerald Ford isn't the only one who can't walk and chew gum at the same time ....

    Umm, yeah. Have you ever been to this "failed Communist state" ? I'd suggest withholding judgement until you've seen it in person.
  12. Nope, you're a good twenty years out of date....

    Nope, you're a good twenty years out of date. China market is five times bigger than US, head down to any store and take a look, domestic goodies past the horizon, all sold to the 1.4 billion people...

    Yeah right, that's why GE just came out with a next-generation even huger wind turbine. Blabbity blabbity by people who have no connection to the wind industry and no idea what the things really...

    Another one in the free category is dotProject. We used it a little because it's pretty straightforward and easy to modify, but Bob's got a good point, except for the coolness of computers, a white...

    You've gotta be kidding .... an auction virgin ? I didn't know there was such a thing ....
  16. No, what's effective is putting the part in a...

    No, what's effective is putting the part in a thread grinder. Then you get a nice part :D

    I would only consider doing a worm that way if I was desperate. What the heck are you making ?

    (This is...

    Okay, that I can accept. There's a lot of other stuff that flies under the heading "cam" now, and APT is just for creating toolpaths.

    But I don't accept that there's anything toolpath related...
  18. Design something in inches, if you wouldn't mind...

    Design something in inches, if you wouldn't mind - like wechat, I don't do metric cuz I don't have to, and it sucks :) - and I'd never use a "4 mm grooving tool" for something like that.
    ...
  19. Really ? Because the major users of APT were...

    Really ? Because the major users of APT were doing five axis work. Last I looked, Fusion and the rest were not capable of that.

    And your own question here would seem to refute that statement,...

    If there's anything Doug doesn't need, it's an external spam detector :D

    Ouch. I bet they got a pretty penny for a replacement, too. Yes, wormgears have a lot of sliding, so they want oil. And if they don't get it, they can be real grumpy :)

    edit: found a pretty good...

    In that case, I'd say "it depends" :) Single start is usually considered more accurate than multi-start, but the ratios are more extreme. They use cone drives for a few different purposes - one is,...

    Oh, reading this over again, maybe I misunderstood you .... did you mean multi-start ? If so, I guess it's just as common as any wormgear setup, but isn't inherent in the design, just depends on the...

    wtf ? Airstrip One is a minor outlying island of Oceania. That's you, bunky.

    Does Emanuel Goldstein even exist ? that's for Big Brother to know, and you to maybe not find out ... unless you like...

    Best that you don't, because all that stupid paranoid bullshit is poisonous. You are full of delusions and fearmongering garbage about the cannibals on the other side of the mountain.
