    I guess I'm still lost as to the reason for this? Not criticizing in any way, just wondering why Fadal needs something different? The fadal macro that's already on the machine is brain dead simple. ...

    I don't understand how it even is working now. Line 15 he has G0 Z0 H0. That still tells the machine to rapid to Z0 with no offset called up. How is that working?

    As far as the "mark" feature goes. On my Siemens control, I think it's an 810D, the mark button is just a highlight button. You move to where you want to start your copying, and hit "mark". Then...

    I've got a number of Ultra-dex drills. I'm pretty happy with them. They may not perform as well as a sandvik, or the Kyocera's mentioned above, but for the money, they work quite well. the inserts...

    Yeah, I was wondering when someone would say it. If you're sure the chips are your problem, then eliminate the making of chips by using form tap. I use them all the time in cold roll steels.

    I'm voting for the rigid schedule. I went with flexible with my first employee, and he eventually took advantage of my kindness. I should have corrected it right from the start, but I continued to...

    Thanks Bob. I understand all you're saying. These are just electrical adapters to change the connection from one size to a different size, so the pickiness of these threads is not very hi-tech. ...

    Yeah, can't get one soon enough for the job. I would stop by but it's only a 12 pc order, might not be worth the trip. I have thread mics but only up to 2". I'll pick up a 2-3 soon, just gotta get...

    Thanks Bob. yeah, despite my warning the kid that he's going to wind up with a bunch of programs that he doesn't know what they are used for, he went and still did it. Gee, thanks. :wrong:
