    Well, I've added a locating tool to set the part against to ensure location.
    I've also added a 1/8" deep periphery cut and a hard stop to open up and visually ensure it is centered up properly....

    He said he only touches the high spots. I saw the blued master and it was very well covered. Over 90%.
    Then he put in my master and verified that we had 0.00015 tir at 5" from gage line.

    Well he is all done. Ground off the high spots and it is a .0001 TIR at 5" out from gage line.

    Seems like a pretty solid fix and under $2000 for very minor damage.

    I will report back once he...

    I hope you are exaggerating the coolant mist that is circulating around the shop.
    Do their machines have mist collectors? I hate buying them but sure like having them around.

    I think I am going to go thru my tooling and find any of the older, standard Mari tool studs and make sure they are only in 1/4" or smaller tool holders so the tools are smaller than the stud. If...

    Back in the 1980's I was told not to regrind more than 10% off an end mill. 1/2" mill could then go -.05 to .450 although grinding etc has changed a fair dinkum since some guy in his garage pulling...

    DOUBLE AH HA!

    Now I have figured out what happened. Mis-located part in the vise by 1/2". Yeah. 1/2". So when it came around that corner expecting .020" material, it ran straight into a full...

    I believe it lifted the part from the vise when it hit and things just ended.

    Part was crooked on one end, so it ends up being a parallelogram. My 1/2" 5 flute that is used to rough the periphery in .020 radial cuts rounded a corner expecting...

    The local place doesn't do in place grinding, but there is a guy in Bend that will travel for only a couple hundred.

    He will be here Wednesday to re-grind.

    Damaged BT30 spindle. grrr

    There should be a solenoid that turns on and off with the spindle. It controls the air flow to the nose seal to keep contaminants out.
  20. Are there rules about how far out you can hold material blanks?

    I have some parts, made from 3/4 x 2-1/2" 1018 cold drawn steel. Saw cut about 6-1/4" long has some work on both faces and one end.

    OK, it sounds like you are turning parts, not milling based on G71.

    It also sounds like your material blank is just too long, forcing the first cut to be .100 more than it should.

    One thing that always makes me cringe about a Haas machine is that they offer a second year of warranty, and it costs $5-6k.
