    Another thing to consider, can possibly stack 2-3 plates together in wedm and/or nest the blades to minimize material loss. You don't need to spread them out for endmill clearance, can go maybe .05"...

    You will need a machine with solid threading capabilities if you want to skin holes and cut profile. Also submersible is the way to go. We do quite well with our sodick machines on unattended machine...

    Can't say why for this particular thread, but fast food seems to be the most entry level job you can get, and go to work after school when you are 16 or so. And I think there are basically no...

    I program all my tools (well, a few exceptions but I digress) at nominal and computer comp for roughing, then use wear comp for finishing. Basically as stated, run at zero (unless critical features,...

    I have no idea what they pay in the Tampa area, but, the entry level cnc guy (1-2 years) probably thinks they know more than they do (and want to be paid for it :rolleyes5:), which is unfortunate,...
