    as stated, your speeds and feeds make no sense. Try 300 rpm and 11.111 ipm.

    So your question is, "How do I get excellent results when using the wrong tool?"

    Get yourself an M A Ford 3fl super twister, run it as fast as the machine will go, and don't worry about it

    all the cast drain pipe I've ever seen used lead packing. Back in LA, at least, there were certain things that had to be done by a licensed plumber. Try that first, cause it's a shitty job. (got it...

    thanks for all the responses. I realize a volume shipper is going to get a better rate than me, but still it seems way out of wack. I'm in the same boat as Bob-j-h mentioned above. Say I have an item...

  11. OT Ebay shippig charges- way too cheap?

    I had a few odds and ends I thought I'd put on Ebay and get rid of. I'm looking at their shipping calculator, and it seems the ups and usps pricing are sky high. So I'm looking through some listings;...

    check me if im wrong, but I think the OP is looking to Nitride titanium, not titanium nitride.

    I'm sure you've already seen this then, Nitriding of Titanium and Titanium Alloys :: Total Materia...

    we used to use reverse spiral end mills for that. (ie right hand cut, left hand spiral) Without seeing the part its hard to guess, but clay or wax on the outside could help.

    they all come with a back up thumb drive. In addition, if you're As9100, part of your risk management system should have required you to have an offsite backup.:D

    it retracts to the R plane, R stands for Retract. When you post it longhand, you can make it do whatever you want, and it will run on any machine, any control.

    I would go for a used B$S. Sometimes the clamp mechanism gets gummed up with coolant/abrasive. Nothing a good cleaning wont fix. At worst you'll need to regrind it all, but that'll be a nice little...

    I'd be a little leery of "This" Really, he's sold 51 of them, but this is the "Last" one. Holy shit, you'd better hurry. It looks Chinese, so it's a safe bet you'll be disappointed.

    Some controls will do it, but I think the easiest way is to just post It longhand. Done.
    If you've got a lot of holes, use a subroutine.

    It looks like your lead in line is going the wrong direction. I think that was already pointed out to you.

    No, I don't think he ever will. Judging by his user name, I'm guessing he works in a race shop making "High Performance" garbage. Just a guess on my part.

    You're not turning your comps on and off correctly. Some controls are fussier than others, but your G40 on your G28 G91 Z0 line is unacceptable.
