    Yuck.

    Use a straight edge for orientation and clamp in two places, mill accessible areas, then move the clamps and mill the remaining stock?

    That or leave extra material in three or four places...

    Congrats, and best of luck on your new endeavor! I'd imagine 50k is ear protection territory, especially with a belt drive. I've never run more than 20k rpm.

    JobBOSS is around $130/mo. without their finance module with cloud hosting. No idea on cost for that since I'm using Quickbooks export.

    Congrats, and hopefully everything gets worked out. That is a nightmare to me since on a used machine the acceptance papers have to be signed before the machine gets financed and you pretty much own...

    When I was buying for laboratory instrumentation, quality double-conversion UPS systems in the 5kVA range cost $15k. They did not go up linearly in price above that, either. They got VERY expensive...

    I did some digging and it looks like I may have been confusing "stiffness" with "resistance?" I'm not convinced that I wasn't just 100% wrong since I haven't dealt with any of those measurements...

    I'd just use the same setup I use for processing metallic cartridges for reloading. The oxidation on these will rub off with a finger without too much effort so I would not want to use any kind of...

    No they told me they skipped normalizing because they said it would have scaled the parts (they heat treat in vacuum but don't normalize in a vacuum I guess?) and we wanted to keep the surface finish.

    We had a guy not check the raw stock against the parallels and one of them flew out and destroyed the front Y-axis way cover. I prefer step jaws or something similar in a fast machine!
