    Have you shopped that? I take 5 prescribed medications, for BP, and heart problems plus a vial of insulin a month and it now comes out at $125 a month, full cash price, without insurance. I...

    Agree with the post saying to buy two machines, get a used CNC lathe and a 3 axis machining center. You can get pretty creative with fixturing to eliminate the need for more expensive 4 and 5 axis...

    Agreed, completed E-bay sales is a good place to look, but bear in mind there can be regional differences in worth, also ease of rigging can effect price. The mill you have would be worth more...

    I would go with the TIN 118, but like I said on one strange batch they did not last. I had not been getting certs so no idea on any possible differences. I always buy the 4140 ANN from BMG Metals.

    Inconsistent material, a very common occurrence these days. I get certs on everything these days, and ask where it came from before I buy. I try to stick with the same brands if it worked well...

    You will probably have better luck over at the Zone getting help, not too many Chinese router owners here, if any.

    I don't understand why people are afraid to get sued for libel and slander, you can only be found guilty of those things if you told a lie to defame someone. It isn't libel or slander if it is the...

    There really should be a pinned thread for riggers on this forum, I went through a couple losers before I found a good one in So Cal, then I unfortunately moved 2600 miles away from him.

    To the OP, that is good that you are staying on the clock with 50+ hour weeks. I would suppose if the new programmer isn't a top performer you will be involved in that area enough not to lose touch.

    It has now been over 25 years since I saw or used a program I did not write, so my nomenclature will be lacking. The most programmers working in any place I was at was two and a half. In those two...

    $1.20 a pound for brass here, solids only. Steel yards here have a very limited selection, but they do have 12L14 at a good price.

    At a quick glance I would figure 4 hours start to finish to have it in a box ready for shipping and $80 for solid material. $200 would get you about $30 an hour. I did not quote either. I mix steel...
