    Just the cylindrical part at the top ? Should be a picnic. Tranny gears are normally carburized, use any old carbide, take off .050 or so on a side, and the core should be about 35 Rc. I usually nail...

    I've seen a few desktop programs where you could change variables and see the different results. A friend made one as an exercise in OpenGL programming, was kind of fun to mess with.

    If you drop a count on an encoder, you never get it back. With resolvers, that's not a problem. I kinda like analog, to be honest. Records sound better to me than CD's, too.

    Encoders are no doubt...

    It would be nice if the people of the country finally grew up enough to tell those people to fuck off.

    Not going to happen but it would be nice.

    Yes, exactly. And that's why the US will eventually go into the toilet. Nothing matters except how much money you can make tomorrow. Not even next week, just tomorrow. Other things were important...

    It was attriuted to Al Capone. Most everyone in the US knows he went to prison for tax evasion, not killing dozens of people. It's called irony.

    As a general rule of thumb, for 14.5* p.a. gears, move them 1.4 times the amount you want to change. That is, if you have .005" lash and want .002", move the parts closer together by .0042".

    For...

    If they pay income tax, then the IRS doesn't care about anything else. Not their job. What is hard to figure out about that ?

    Modified that for you. China is not like that. When you have 500 million potential employees, you don't really give a shit if they get bored or not. Just get a new one. They all prefer volume.

    With carbide inserts the sides are not straight so they don't scrape the side walls. However, this is one reason I don't like the Iscar-type parting tools, that use the little insert pushed into the...

    Ah. Does Fadal use those helically-slit couplings ? I have replaced several of those, was surprised that they broke since the load is tiny, but maybe they do a good job of compensating for small...

    The Magic Triangle has not changed in 10,000 years ... they were probably wacko back then, too, but what can ya do ?

    Do they have those gift card debit cards in Oz ? At least that way all you risk is the amount on the card.

    If it's alipay you can do zhifubao. Highly recommended, they are what paypal pretends to...

    I meant bigger volume in their incoming jobs. That's "better work" to me. Pretty much everyone would like to do 500 parts instead of twenty. So as they grow and get better customers/work/jobs,...
