    Yuuuup

    Brother are Japanese machines engineered with a Japanese mind set.

    I think part of the thrust of this thread is small machine can't be rigid so buy a big "Real-ish" machine.

    I think...

    There is something about NERDLY that I can't put my finger on in terms of you saying "Combative" etc. I think it does come from the expectation of the performance of other products (in a similar...

    He loved the VF2 LOVE LOVE LOVED it …

    And regretted not buying it in the first instance. I.e. regretted buying the HAAS Minimill. (Sorta "On-topic" here.).

    Because of the bug on the control...

    I was wondering if they torqued the hell out of the pre-load on the ball nut and z column trucks so if it happens again the head plunges really really slowly :D ---> Hence rather artsy / "drunk"...

    Maybe.

    And YZ plane ball bar plot is always difficult for any 3 axis vertical. So in his next explanation video I hope he shows ALL the ball bar plots for both machines.

    The VF's are not mold...

    Part Deux...

    So poor Nerdly is at the mercy of some unwanted Haasles.

    there will be part 3.

    As someone that develops industrial grade...

    That's what I was wondering as it does kinda look "Monarch-ish" in a way and was reading about the handy features you mention particularly tapers/ tapering + nice as you say "real-time speed...

    Nice thread …

    Checking out the Weiler stuff looks nice are they really that good ? (looks sweet , never run one ).

    Maybe add


    "#4. Stop and think - What is the worst thing that can actually happen here ? … No really ! "

    (as soon as complacency sets in / "Got this" "Easy-peasy" that's when the crashes and...

    Greg Jackson that founded the company always made it clear that the user / buyer would always be required to get into the machine for maintenance and fixing stuff. I.e. you had to know how to use a...

    I don't think budget is an issue ;-)

    Think if money was no object (what would you do ) ?

    Sometimes it's a valid question. I'll butt-out.
  12. Nerdly put out a picture / comment section...

    Nerdly put out a picture / comment section privately to his subscribers soon after his machine tries to commit suicide.

    If memory serves me right, in the comments...

    He said that when the...

    fair 'nuff for sure.

    That's the "Killer" problem for automation mapping out your Cpk's thermal drift and tool wear (of course) comps, and much much else besides. + having an actually accurate and...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtnaqJuJ9kw

    Myauuuup (indeed).

    This video is interesting for many reasons.

    I wonder when Nerdly releases his HAAS confirmed control issue/ "bug" that smashed...

    I was just trying to be diplomatic rather than 100% throwing Tormach under the bus. In respect of Nerdly. One of the problems is Tormach resists at all cost "refusal of delivery".

    If you have no...

    @TKasooc Specifications

    This is their spec's ^^^ I don't see ANY specs here that relate to actual expected positional accuracy or performance... As I have mentioned many many times resolution ≠...

    A regular modern half decent 3 axis mill can do 7 to 10 micron part accuracies on an ISO 230-2 test part , the circle square diamond test in Aluminum 5050. Short cycle time (less thermal effects)...

    That's a great summary , and that's why it's important to have a really stable machine that can deliver beautiful surfaces in materials like 6061. The woodworking tools that Drogus cites / links to...

    On a willemin 308S2 surely you mean +/- 0.0001" ? (done "blind" on said machine. Like 5 to 10 micron part / form tolerances. ) I imagine it has sub micron for roundness and the like ?
  20. That's what I was thinking ; I was thinking...

    That's what I was thinking ; I was thinking surely this guy (drogus) has to do something in steel/ tool steel ?

    In Nerdly's case he bailed on a Tormach at the last minute, as he was getting cold feet.

    Then he bought a minimill but says he regretted not buying a HAAS VF-something right off the bat (in the...

    Seems like you need something that can cut straight and also have good surface finishes on aluminum, seems positional accuracy would be second to straightness and quality of cut.

    Looking at those...

    Kind of "Riffing" off the good stuff implex is putting down and what drogus is seeking,

    It does seem that $500K is the "magic number" on the prototyping front.
