    Yeah, that's definitely a Fusion 360 render.

    Don't you know, it's simple, just turn a picture into a part?!

    I'd say it's more appropriate for agriculture instead of 4 wheeling.

    But then the Dana 18 had an agricultural spline on it anyway!

    'Tis funny that Dana 18 and BB Ford both used a 1-3/8 6...

    As you noted, it's that budget plasma system, which has no Z height control. The torch is situated at a static height on the machine, so Z has nothing to do with it.

    You can hear the air kick on right at the M3, then the 800ms dwell, but the arc doesn't start for another inch of travel.

    Take the torch off, and time how long it takes for the arc to start after...

    I wonder how much MDF he cut with the router? I bought a bridgeport that was used in an environment with MDF, that stuff is flippin' NASTY to machine tools!

    My Fadal had MDF dust caked on it too,...

    IIRC Mori made a "phone booth" CNC mill back in the day too, like the HAAS OM-1.

    Hmm, the 0.01mm snuck past me. That's 4 tenths!

    The thinnest feeler stock I'm aware of is 0.001"

    Just handling a 40" piece of Al would probably move it more than 0.01mm over 40".

    I just had this vision of someone riding a Fadal spindle head like one of those mechanical bulls in a bar.

    I wonder what the economics are of packing up US made Aluminum machined parts, shipping them to Taiwan for finishing, then shipping them back to the US?

    Those machines will have more sea miles on...

    What I find interesting is that he doesn't appear to have proper metrology to inspect these parts. At the minimum he would need a granite table large enough to check the bow, twist, and dimensional...

    The only reason I've posted anything in this thread is that I detected a dangerous level of over-confidence mixed with a ridiculous lack of transparency.

    That poly tubing might kink inside the cable chain, the rubber hose has a rather thick wall and doesn't kink. That's the main problem I've had with plastic tubing, except for air-brake tubing...

    Why do millionaires and deca-millionaires have an interest in your business?

    My solution is a period correct replacement for the "Prestone can" cooler it would have had from the factory. I don't have chilled screws, so only the spindle heat is being transferred to the cooler...

    I think it's much more likely that he sold the design to a 3rd party MTB in Taiwan. I bet the next iteration of the SwissMak only resembles the current version lightly, the new MTB will use proven...

    Ox, it's probably a case of burned out IGBTs in the spindle drive, so maybe just get a set of IGBT modules and replace them?
