    I would go with plain (bright) no coating on aluminum. Don't use black oxide on aluminum as it will start to stick, but seems to be ok in 1018 or A36. Not sure on stainless... I would go split point...

    General purpose for all your mats you run or..?

    Yes I can certainly attest to that! The cutout in the door/front for the variaxis is so simple, but pure genius from a setup and operate perspective. Definitely a back breaker on the Haas having to...

    I can't swear to model number, other than it being a variaxis, but actually their trunnion is 90 deg from a Haas. So you actually have a large bearing on each side of the trunnion. Now, this was 2-3...

    I didn't read everything, but I don't think some of what they were saying is/was as 'revolutionary' as they claim. Back in 2000-2003 I worked at a stamping place where we roll formed 3 different...

    I find it strange that the DMG has no end support on the trunnion. When Haas first came out with that design everyone screamed they were idiots. I wonder what the DMG is doing (or is thinking?)...

    I ran a UMC750 for a few years, you might have quoted me on the hole specs being out by up to .002" from opposite sides. :) That is true, BUT easy to fix by probing a known feature / hole when...

    I've never ran a Heidenhain controlled machine, but I have output code for them at a different job. I think part of it (IMO) is it looks like gibberish to anyone that "grew up on Fanuc / Yasnac /...

    I would do that, and add shear to the punches (or die depending on which part is being kept). I would grind a 'vee' in the round punch, as straight shear will want to make it walk a little bit.
