    Willy-

    I don't think Dualkit was saying that getting sent home was necessarily your fault. There are a lot of other potential reasons. The boss might be a jerk, or he might have been trying to...

    My favorite was in early 2009:

    H.R. drone- "Do you have experience running Haas machines?"

    me- "I've run a VF0, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8, an SL10, and a TL1 and 2"

    H.R. drone- "Yeah... Well, our...

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I've been thinking about a completely different subject:

    "Where are all the machinists?"

    Long story short, I started machining in 1998, at $8.75 per hour. I was...

    The hardware key will look like this:
    https://sentineldiscussion.safenet-inc.com/viewImage.do?fileId=43161000001102005&forumGroupId=43161000000003001

    It should be plugged in to the parallel port....

    Do you still have the hardware key? If you do, then I can send you the software, legally. It was the key that they charged for. The original, pre-windows software was free. You might even be able...

    Rob-

    If that's the case, then he should let us know that he wants a shop for boring hubs, and milling keyways. (or whatever else) At least then we'd know he has SOME idea what he wants. So far,...

    It seems like the posts since he resurrected the thread have been more positive than the earlier ones. Does he not remember the beating he took the first time around? The spammer comment is...

    Are you choking up on it? I try to leave reamers hanging out much longer than drills, to let them float better. It needs to follow the hole that's already there, instead of trying to make it's own....

    Are you looking for another shop? Or are you still looking for the first one?

    It might help if you describe what kind of shop you want. Metal spinning? Gear hobbing? Swiss turning? ...

    I think you misunderstood what Andy meant by, "management responsibilities." It's not about paperwork, or assigning tasks. The question is, do all 20-30 people know fully what needs to be done, and...

    If this is that same job you posted back in March, the school's listing seemed more like they wanted an engineer than a machinist. If I remember correctly, the pay topped out at a bit under $80,000...

    It could be worse. With good traffic, it would take me about 40 hours. EACH WAY. And you just know that once or twice a week, I'd get to about St. Louis before I realized I'd forgotten my lunch. ...

    You know the job better than the school's HR department, and you're probably more likely to find someone here than they are, wherever they're advertising. So... Explain to us what the day to day...

    I can't say I'm surprised that the job is still open. They take forever to hire. About a dozen years ago, when Nelson retired from the mechanical engineering shop, I was one of the finalists for...

    The pay seems on the low side for a degreed train driver, who can program CNCs. There aren't a whole lot of people who are any good at both Matlab, and running a machine shop. The job in the UCSB...

    I don't know about the specific guy you spoke to, but you can find plenty of similar parts on gunbroker, if you search for "parts kit."

    When were the tryouts? Will there be any qualifying events in the near future?

    I took second place at the national mountain bike championship in 2005. For my age group. In the sport category. ...

    Have him measure a thread, with wires. If he claims 20 years experience, but he's never even heard of thread wires, he's a button pusher for life. If he's never done it before, talk him through it,...

    Can you interpolate the holes with a tapered endmill? Grind the flute length down to about 1/2" or so, and spiral down as you constantly reduce the diameter. If you get the angles right, and keep...

    Here in Southern California, the illiteracy problem is really just a different side of the immigration problem. I don't remember the last American citizen I met, of any race, who couldn't read basic...

    As stated above, the X means everything. When you hit delete, it won't do anything to any tool path without the X. But that X doesn't always end up where you think it should be. So stop and look,...
