    I would suggest that you temper this idea "- can save you time by not having to proof out complex code"

    You will still be proofing out all code - the proofing will be easier, you'll be comfortable...

    I don't think everyone will stop - I rode my first cyclocross race in nearly 2 years yesterday - I'm very slow, but it's an intense challenge, good for me, and fun. The basic sentiment everywhere...

    The made in Korea parts could easily be YG1.

    I just ordered a chuck that looks identical to a teckniks - I have several - I can compare them when it arrives.

    Ox - bicycle racing is weird. Not as weird as motorsports, but weird. In its own special way. But hey, it keeps me occupied and therefore out of trouble...

    But wait, there's more! Don't want to use public transit? Can't afford/don't want a car? Get a bicycle!! (A generally great idea anway.)

    Well, good luck with that.

    Even the very pricey...

    here's a bucket of ice water on the topic....

    any simulation, in the CAM, in something like vericut or ncsimul or whatever, is only as accurate as its model of the machine, and in particular, must...
  8. forklift brakes sometimes squeek but work fine, does this really indicate problem?

    Forklift is a toyota 8K boxcar special. Seems to work fine. Sometimes, especially when backing down ramp in the cold, the brakes will squeek. In general, they are quiet.
    It seems to stop fine...

    Look up "motor-generator" set - used in large computing installations at one time.

    Oh for sure, the key phrase was "in my hands" - I am blessed in many ways, but awesome hand dexterity is not one of them.

    Since I apparently started this thread in the mists of time, I'll report that:
    a. I eventually got a spark engraver - and find that while it works to spec it's basically useless in my hands

    It turns out one of the hardest positions to fill on a race team is "truck driver". The actual truck driving isn't very special - and that's the problem. It can be hard to persuade people that...

    "special" as in "bloody awful" - it's a sarcastic reference (in this case) - like surely this has got to be one of the biggest fears of any train crew - second to what - a head on with another train?...

    One would like to think that this sort of incident would be rare. But the linked video has several of them.

    It's like the accident report in general aviation where some bright star gets out of...

    OK.

    Here's an experiment that you might do after you've pull the vise and before the machine is packed up.

    Set table to B0 C0 and run an indicator along one of the t-slots.

    Then do the B90...

    Uh, at 1:26 if you stop it, the positions read:
    C -0.310 (!?!?!)
    B 90
    Z -2.7351
    X -1.502
    Y-24

    A 1:30 we see both the G54 position (B=90, C=-90) and the Machine position (B=90 C=-0.310)

    This last bit makes me wonder if some large class of 5-axis (and HMC work) won't be replaced by more refined robots - at least for medium to high (whatever that means) volume runs.
