    I think they will get there with Fusion because:

    - It is now profitable for Autodesk and is hitting all the prescribed targets to make the C-suite very happy. Investment in the long-term is now...

    I mean, the thing of all the griping on here is that this is a free market. Anyone on here is free to become a software developer and start writing their own CAD/CAM package and sell it for a low...

    FFS... that exists today. It is called Fusion, it costs $500 a year to do the vast majority of 3+2 and turning work. It costs $1700 if you want to play with (very good) surfacing, full 5 axis, or...

    All self-centering vises have problems being second-op vises. Obviously, the jaws are floating along a lead screw, so how on earth would they repeat with gnats ass accuracy?

    Which is why most of...

    If you just want a single station “classic” vise in the old school Kurt 688 style, buying an Orange makes no sense. Orange is really a modular vise that you can do a bunch of tricks - it has a quick...

    Orange can use dovetail jaws or standard Kurt bolt-on jaws. The dovetail stock can be bought as relatively inexpensive extrusion, but it is an easy enough thing for a machinist to fabricate...

    Make it yourself is the key here, because last time I checked, they wanted like $180 a pop for those, which is an absurd price for an expendable bit of workholding.

    True! The F35 and F22 are the same. Pretty much any big DOD project works like that, so it was a bit unfair to call out Airbus and the EU as being especially egregious.

    Having said that, the...

    There is a documentry on You Tube about the A380. Airbus is basically a giant EU sponsored industrial welfare program, with parts made all over damnation. Wings in Ireland, fusulage in Spain,...

    My god man...
    First, you misrepresent your transaction with Andy.

    Then you accuse him of shilling on a forum, even though he doesn't really shill and they pay for the forum..

    Then you go into...

    Why can't this forum offer both insight from other owners AND feedback from sales/technical folks behind the machine?

    That isn't what your post history says.

    Because of Andy's support of the forum, he has sold a lot of Speedios to PM members, so they also get a surprising number of post content on here. And there...

    Agreed. The only things that you really need to add compared to a generic Fanuc post are:

    1- G100 tool changes.

    2- G77 Tapping

    3- M298 Lx High Accuracy codes (depends on the Fanuc post what...

    On my 4th, I went with the a Lang 96mm grid receiver, and I cannot imagine not having a 4th axis without it.

    Lang Quick Point is basically a 96mm or 52mm grid system that uses pulldown studs....

    I believe the other Varup images are for R, F, and M series Speedios, but the naming is dumb. If you have an S series machine, just follow the instructions.

    Straightness isn't really a huge factor - it isn't going to be bowed in the extruded 1.5" (or 35mm) direction too much, and the cut length of less than an inch isn't going to leave much for curvature...

    For this? The tooling and processing cost is relatively cheap. Having said that, it looks close enough that some upstream engineering changes to design the part around a 1.5" x 0.375" dimension would...
