    That is a great idea! Next time I have large enough cutout, I'll make the bolt pattern the same as standard jaws!

    That is kind of brilliant.

    If the windows are small, or the slug is not worth salvage, make chips.

    Sometimes I am able to fixture plates that have big through features high enough off the table that the slugs fall safely to...

    It makes me happy to see a LMGTFY link. I'm a bit surprised to see that they have their own "search engine" now (that they definitely skim from google). It used to show a google search, and bring you...

    All the time I've programmed the probe to check stuff and I never once noticed that O9810 had an optional input that I could use to generate the custom message "(YOU LOADED IT WRONG DUMBASS)" rather...

    Are you measuring the hole your drill gives you?...

    Are you measuring the hole your drill gives you?

    You can drill a bit under and ream to size. This also allows you to make up for tight/loose % engagement by tenths if needed.

    I would not use...

    I second the idea that you should be mixing it before you put it in the machine. If not manually mixing it in a bucket, there are also mixers that mixes coolant for you; just hook up a water hose to...

    I'm not real confident in my troubleshooting so hopefully someone else comes along with better information and more knowledge of it.

    Looking in a 15MB manual, I've found a couple things worth...

    Also, can you post some of your code that you are sending to the machine?

    I don't have much to add because most things said already I agree with (distance to go, rapids, dry run, etc).

    But if you're making a manual or instruction pamphlet, may I suggest you make a...

    I don't have experience with your brand. We use Iscar (tools are made by the same manufacturer as Carmex threadmills too)

    Googled your threadmill number, found the catalog. It says the minimum...

    I know you said you've tested it but have you checked for the status of whichever X signal it is going into the PMC? Is that bit switching when you toggle the switch?

    I guess see if you can get ahold of mitee bite and if they will swap em out for you?

    If it were me, I would modify that fixture slightly and have 2 talon grips per part instead of one. For...

    Maybe I misunderstand what you wrote, but I wouldn't have the "master program" call up your G10. I would insert your G10 lines at the beginning of your program for each individual pallet. You may...

    I am pretty sure I overtighten them now and then. I've had em break. Usually get more life out of them than you did.

    Sometimes they are a bit softer, and after hundreds? of clamps in stuff like...

    I have a question. Are you calling Kitamura in Chicago? Or some other rep?

    I don't have any better "solution" for cheaper parts. Only asked because my boss called Methods about our 1998 Kitamura...

    I'm curious. What happens if you try:

    #1=44.598
    M0
    #7004=#1
    M0
    #2=#7004
    M0

    Does #2 read as the shifted decimal? Or did it "convert back"?

    Probably. I know my 1GB works on a 16iB but 4GB doesn't.

    We have a laptop stand mounted to the machine. We use a laptop with an old seat of Predator CNC editor. There are lots of CNC editing programs out there that can send and receive to CNC machines.

    1997 Robodrill with 16iA control checking in here. We use it for HSM toolpaths (volumill) a decent amount. Cut a lot of 4140 with 1/2" endmills over an inch deep, about .040 stepover, and maybe...

    Can't tell exactly from that picture, resolution isn't great. Looks like there might be contactors on the lower right of the encloser (Top right of the picture; the picture is turned 90 degrees).

    I quickly looked in the manual for our 1998 Kitamura H400 with 15M control

    Alarm 9 (which corresponds to the 2009 you see) says chip conveyor alarm. It says "abnormal of chip conveyor - SINGLE...

    Thinking back to your code, it would probably be okay to not cancel cutter comp between your passes because it is programmed to start and end at the center of the hole. Often, when I program them, my...

    What do you mean by "nothing"?

    Does the code execute, or does it give an alarm?

    Does it work without using G72.1?

    I assume you are putting in a negative value in your D108?

    With that...

    I would suggest you make a "gage" out of a solid piece of material and ream some holes in it where the holes should be. Drop your finished part on it and see if the holes line up with gage pins. This...
