    Well you can, but itís 2k a year for inventor alone and 2.6k for the package.

    What bugs me is if you look at the web page for inventor, thereís no big sign or button that says ďif you actually...

    Iím not a plasma guy... it kinda looks like your switch is sticking. Could change the feed to 10% for the first line after it turns on, then jump back and see if it cuts a bit more.

    The press retails for $6k, the holders something like $350 a piece... I think? Possibly more, but the sales guy will...

    Rego-Fix PowRgrip BT-30 set

    Hey there,

    I bought into this with the impression that Iíd reap the benefits Iíd seen from using PowRgrip in a larger shop, but itís just not a good match for me; would do spectacular things for...

    Another G10 macro thread

    Hey gents,

    I'm glad I did a few searches on this, pretty much found what I need, but there's hundreds of threads on macros. I could use some help figuring out which general direction I should be...
  14. Another project; 1980s Mitutoyo CMM resurrection

    Evenin folks,

    You might have spotted a thread I had about a DIY CMM a while back. Someone suggested I get an old one and screw with that.
