    Hi all

    We're about to acquire a Renishaw SLM 125, but Renishaw themselves will not support it at all.

    I think you're right, I need the Y axis capability. Is there anything I should know about the Hardinge? I'm struggling to find a Fanuc 16i post for Fusion 360.

    The machine won't be marking full time - maybe a day or so a week. Our production work is all small batches.

  16. Laser Cutting Post Processing - Sticky Gunk & Spatter Removal

    Hi all

    Hope you appreciate my use of technical terms like "sticky gunk". For what it's worth I'm a home gamer so some of the things that are obvious to the more experienced of you I'll be totally...

    Thanks Denis - I've not been heat treating, only stress relieving (much, much lower temp). Good to see that red heat has worked somewhat though, I will try that next.

    Cheers Trev, trouble is it's not $300 for 50 - MOQ is 250 so I need to spend $1500 to get my 50 springs.

  21. Hand Winding Springs - With a Twist (Help please!)

    Hi all

    Whilst this really isn't my forte, I'm no stranger to hand winding coil springs - springback is a matter of trial and error and it doesn't take long to dial it in.
