    Just like my email, when Go-daddy wouldn't let me use an ampersand or caps in my email address.
    The "&" has to be spelled out. Hence banda. Same shit on instagram.

    Small update:
    No pics sorry. I toss something up on IG now & then if a guy is super curious. But, I am somehow absolutely slammed right now.
    Almost all new work. I do still have that semi-large job...

    Yea, pretty much same here. I have an "engineering" box in my spreadsheet.
    If it is a simple part, easy to source material? Normal tools on hand? I put in 15 minutes.
    If it is a multi part# quote...

    Control is actually very reliable.
    Just know: There is absolutely ZERO support from HAAS for that vintage control.
    If the price is right, and the work/situation suits the machine? A guy could be...

    There is so much gray area in quoting. Honestly, I feel quoting is 100% an educated guess.
    I feel some things should just be figured in to the shop rate as overhead. Especially for a small shop like...

    $75-$105/hr (machine dependent), programming/set-up $85/hr.
    I do not mark pre-cut material up, I try to order everything cut.
    But, if it has to go on the saw? It gets marked up 20%.

    Everything...

    On a drill, sure. But, who has time to futz around getting boring bar points on center with a split holder?

    I bought a really nice little 5/16 Sandvik carbide bar a couple months ago, and about...

    Yea, TSC is nice. But, I will caution: if you are using small tools, the standard 435psi is not enough.
    And, unless you have a table full of parts (like I did) the time it takes to prime every time...

    I can tell you this: DO NOT waste $16k on the Mayfran Clean-Sweep if you produce any small to fine chips at all.
    It would probably be an okay conveyor on a lathe. But, it is terrible on a mill...

    Yea, that would be ideal. But, I am not about to go after a bunch of these with a wheel-cylinder hone, LOL. (Read: I don't have a nice Sunnen tucked in a corner anywhere)
    Reamed would be fine. I...

    MSC sells lots of them. I was not able to find anything on MSC even remotely close.

    Yea, I know. I probably will end up making them. Just don't want to, LOL.
    I guess the biggest thing holding me back is: I would prefer to ream the holes if I rolled my own. And, I own very few...

    Well, yea, lots of different bushings will "work". But, I am a picky bitch, and want some that work perfectly.
    Like I mentioned: I have a pile of orphan junk that "works". But, the holes (or slots,...
  18. Looking for very specific lathe bushings with no luck

    So, I have two bushings for the I.D. holders for my lathe (2001 Okuma&Howa HL20) that fit perfectly.
    The O/A length, and hole spacing (the set-screws are not centered) is exact for the I.D. holders...
