    COTS means Commercial Off The Shelf. This has nothing to do with patents, much less the one you posted.

    I just read your that it's an off the shelf part. ISO 3269 Fasteners - Acceptance inspection, points you to ISO 1502 ISO general-purpose metric screw threads — Gauges and gauging. Here's what it says...

    Unfortunately, you don't get a measurement with a GO/NOGO gage, you only tell if it is smaller/larger than the gage. The gage tolerances are designed so that if the screw passes the GO/NOGO gage, it...

    If he's doing 2" cube parts, why would you want to go up to the S700 as opposed to the S500 he was looking at in post #1?

    The Omax Protomax (the personal waterject mentioned above) may be a good option. PM member Kustomizer has one and uses it for what looks like jewelry work. See his posts in this thread OMAX -PROTOMAX...

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear. What I meant is that because you don't have the exclusive right to park in those spaces, you can't tow from them.

    For example, let's say you're in unit C. Unit A is...

    Right, but you don't have exclusive use of any specific spaces.

    I think this is something the condo association needs to handle.

    If you don't own the parking space, or even have the exclusive right to use it, you can't put up a no parking sign. Well, you can, but if they challenge the tow you'll be on the hook. I don't know...

    I'm in one of those, but we also have a shared machine shop (manual mill, lathe, Prototrak bed mill, saws, etc), weld shop, wood shop, 3D printer, composites layup room, and oven. It's a great setup....

    Rather than getting a machine shop to do it, you might look at getting it done by a steel yard that has a drill spindle on their plasma table. I've done a fair number of plates like this where they...

    The other alternative, of course, is a stupidly accurate leadscrew. Moore's book "Foundations of Mechanical Accuracy" is a fascinating read and tells you everything you need to know to build a...

    We usually used Heidenhain LC glass scales, they are +-3um or +-5um, so not as good as the Renishaw. I think we used to hold drill countersink depth to a few tenths, but that was more of a...

    OT: Inland Marine insurance

    We do a few high dollar shipments a year. We fill up a flatbed with high dollar equipment. Inland marine insurance is up for renewal and I'm being quoted a minimum premium of $2500, so even though...

    Weiler. Very nice, very german, probably very expensive

    I don't own one, but from what I hear on the forum, Babin does very nice Hardinge rebuilds and builds an HLV-H clone

    You have accused a manufacturer of not following a standard, and, from the sound of it, rejected a machine, because they didn't follow your preferred rule of thumb of 10:1 for Test Accuracy Ratio...

    Except the accuracy isn't 5.1um. You actually have to calculate the measurement uncertainty, not just add numbers together.

    Take a look at JCGM 106:2012 Evaluation of measurement data – The role...

    The rules for salaried exempt* employees are weird and unintuitive. As I understand them, they can't dock your pay for less than full-day absences. They can, however, make you use your PTO, in which...

    As others have pointed out, you aren't following a standard, but rather a rule-of-thumb. The actual standards are, I think, the ISO guides to the expression of uncertainty in measurement and, maybe,...

    If you have a crane, you lay the sheet out on the floor, place foam and, if required, plywood where the feet will land, and then crane the machine on to the sheet. Then you just wrap it up like a...

    1) LPS-3 is definitely the way to go. As suggested earlier, get a hand pump sprayer and use that to apply it. Make sure you LPS every piece of steel that isn't painted (including under the way...

    I would think that any of the standard PVD coatings would work if you coat after casting. For coating before casting, CrN or AlTiN have 700C service temperatures. I don't know how they'd handle...

    Can you expand a little more on what you're doing now with Solidworks? I've done it the other way, where Solidworks pulls dimensions from an excel file, but I've never seen it initiated from the...
