    Wow that seems like a lot of work. I would just delete that hole position from the program! If you are doing one-offs I would think you are re-posting from Cam (assuming you are using cam) anyways...

    Well, OP threw me a loop using circumference as a measurement... 24" cir = 7.64" diameter. Easily handled in most 'real' cnc lathes... If you are machine shopping, Philabuster has the right idea,...

    If you are used to cold weather and all, January in FL will be a breeze, maybe t-shirt weather for snowbirds... LoL

    I remember moving here (Tampa area) and running around in shorts in the 'winter'...

    I think there is more to that story... Alot of young guardsman, a reported "bang" and these guys got scared and fired, AGAINST orders. Not saying it was justified, but how many here have stared down...

    Yes, pretty much. Think about it like this. You quote 3 widgets at 2 hours each = $240

    BUT each widget can be run on a different machine. Setup guy starts first part, moves to machine #2 sets that...

    I might be in left field here, but not having a toolchanger is not necessarily the end of the world. It depends on what you are doing, if it has a tool touch off probe, and your creativity, and if it...

    yabut

    I don't think the OP was questioning an entire specailty built machine. It sounded to me more like "quote these 10-50 widgets", not a 3 million dollar machine/system

    I don't see a problem with it. :cheers: For all you know company B misquoted it entirely and "made up" the forgotten operation.

    Good points here ^

    Buutt you know what they say about machinists, ask 10 machinist how to do something and you will get 12 answers. :D

    I would be interested in seeing a pic if you are so inclined. Not because I don't believe you, because I would like to see how my own quick sketch was soo wrong. :confused:

    edit: is there...

    Something I didn't think of until now- try this place, but I am thinking it will be spendy.

    Products - Peak Toolworks

    I used to work there (before it sold?) and program alot of the stuff you...

    To be honest I have not looked at your numbers. I was just trying to see what you are really looking for....

    Lets look at the rod example (per your figures)-
    1) cheaper material/more yield = less...

    See comments in red.

    ** Post #76 - I honesty don't understand the logic of not caring about kerf loss.

    Not trying to beat you up, but I am getting confused myself....
  19. Well to be fair, neither you nor I have the...

    Well to be fair, neither you nor I have the ability to control anything that a potential customer does, so no need to get bent out of shape IMO, but that's me. You can spend alot of energy on being...

    Ya I worked at a place like that too. :( Where i am now is complete opposite. We don't really farm out work, but as far as supplies and material we just order it. If I need a tool or something and...

    I can vouch for that ^ on the one I ran. Not familiar with the Brother machines in general, but I would hate to be without a chip conveyor unless the machine is really designed around not needing...

    LOL! At least you're honest. :D I agree about not liking the slotted ones, but they are the most universal IMO. And hell once it is on the machine who cares. The ones I linked are cheap (and...

    <<shrug>> Different strokes and all. I am not sure what the OP has at his disposal, or control or whatever so I guess it is a moot point. We do 99% of any reworks to program in cam so it is saved for...

    Or went back to the cam and programmed it correctly. What is your point?
