    From the conversational guy I don't see contours I can't do in the part pictured above. I can't contour it with a ballnose and 15K lines of code but I sure as hell can index a horizontal mill and cut...

    I want to give the conversational side of the perspective. I work in a job shop that runs exclusively Mazak conversational and does all programming on the floor. We have a pretty busy shop with about...

    Even if you get it to do it tool life would most likely be better interpolating. At the least a lot of pecking may be in order.

    Why not try some helical interpolation using the C axis? Make a bigger hole or use a smaller tool to make the hole. You should be able to ramp at 10-15 degrees if the machine can handle it. Endmills...

    At our shop we use those keyless drill chucks for all our HSS tool holding. These work perfectly fine for that and give you 1 holder that holds a range of about .03 to .5. The Accupro ones are...

    Same story here, I believe it is intentional and does stop after so much time stationary. It gets a bit quieter when the spindle is oriented. I tend to orient mine when doing programming and not...

    What if you extend the open ends of the wrench to make contact with the walls of the part. That way it wouldn't be capable of spreading when under pressure. Looks as though taper would keep it from...

    Why do you have an S500 in there? I would think it is alarming because you are telling it to turn the spindle on but not which direction. (M3,M4) Not sure why it would have worked in any machine...

    I prefer to double check my calibration by doing a probe unit to pick up bore on the ring after to make sure that it determines it is in the same location I calibrated it off of. Also have a look at...

    In the headline you have an option for multi offset, this will allow up to 16 I believe unique offsets That it will run the entire program below at each offset. If you only need up to 16 repeats in...

    I agree with too many posts to cut albeit a very big plate, but no one has mentioned Milwaukee's metal cutting cordless saw. Designed for cutting metal, would still need to get at it from both sides...

    I would recommend a Gorilla Mill brand Knuckle Dragger in 3/8" to do most of your roughing. The variable geometry of the flutes and chip breaking shape should eliminate most or all chatter. From...

    What you want is called shift. I believe it's in the end line of the program. You'll probably set it to .65 or so to accommodate a .125 parting tool and a finish pass on the face of the next part....

    I would default to a gorilla brand Yeti endmill for this. On a good machine I would cut this in one pass. They recommend 1X diameter deep slotting on their tools. The coating on these is very slick...

    I disagree with using the biggest tool you can fit in there. The closer you are to your hole size it can kind of multiply your feedrate. If you use a .236 endmill the tool path diameter will only be...
