    If the machine is a Speedio, the High Accuracy settings are probably way more important than the marginal differences between high quality holders. Have Yamazen install firmware V10, use the new...

    No Go. Jergens have been tested and found wanting. You already pointed out why (aluminum base).



    You can run the shit out of a Schunk. The things will survive nuclear winter. They just go and...

    IDK, the dude has basically had to return/replace 2 CNC mills in 12 months. Something is a bit fishy about that from his end.

    Haas seems to have done right by him (as much as they can given the...

    Second this. Just go buy the transformers now. Literally every Speedio running on a PhasePerfect/Rotary winds up needing them, and you don't want to be in a scramble during commissioning to get a set...

    I despised the Space Mouse for *years*. Until I became an NX user. It took about a week of forcing myself to use it and breaking previous habits. Now? I literally won't use CAD without it. Even...

    I think Rob Lockwood said it best a while ago; handing someone a seat of NX without any guidance is like putting some raondo in the seat of an F22 Raptor.

    The CAD side is easy enough to pick up if...

    I saw that on a wire forming machine and immediately wanted it on my mill. We do lots of multi-axis work with *very* tight clearances between tools and work holding, reaching deep into the setup to...

    Frank has sold the higher strength (I think from J&M) pull studs for a while, but he was working on something further improved beyond that, and made in-house. Due date in 2020 or so, I know they are...

    Ahh! The hissing sound you hear is machine air blast, pointed at the probe tip, cleaning off both the ruby and the inspection area.

    The Renishaw can handle it just fine. The coolant is from the high pressure face/taper wash down on a tool change. If you are *production* probing on a turret machine with Big+, it is probably a good...

    I believe Frank @ Maritool is working on such a thing.
  12. Poll: I've been very happy to do production probing...

    I've been very happy to do production probing using the factory macros, but stripping them down and calling them with very particular options to speed stuff up.

    For example, on one quick...

    Nope. 16k is ceramic as well.

    The spindle itself is actually quite robust. I've seen them bumped a bit in XY, and massively buggered in Z. The real Achilles heel is the pull stud. If the crash...

    IDK, Haas wants about the same amount for their 12/15k spindle:

    With 1.5" of Z travel? I hadn't seen that, but that tells me it won't really do any job for anyone!

    It strikes me as odd that Haas hasn't entered the market here yet in a real way. They could put...

    I'm guessing SpeedsandFeeds is right on the money. Use a torque wrench, clamp something in the jaws before you touch them off, and use that same torque value on your parts. The fixed jaw of your vise...

    NX still has Sequential Mill in the 5 axis package, which is basically a visual way to create ATP based tool-path. It is a legacy thing and there for the old-school guys. Like many things in NX, it...

    I've always thought a "Finishing" checkbox in HSM Advisor would be cool, sorta does it all for you in one click.

    That’s what I woulda done within 5 minutes of throwing an indicator on it, but alas- 67 meetings will be had before that happens!

    It is one of those theoretical advantages that I think doesn't pan out to being meaningful real-world. On the TS27/OTS, the base is adjustable so you can dial it in dead-nuts flat. On a Metrol or...

    Oofa, $10k is pretty spendy. I assume about $2500 of that is the Z Nano, and the remainder is the Blum spindle probe.

    Honestly, I would go Renishaw all around. I'm about to fit a TR27 to my...

    Agreed.

    I don't think folks with critical security requirements should be on the cloud yet. AWS is committed to compliance levels well beyond ITAR, and I know Autodesk is under immense pressure to...
