    I'd just ring up the customer or shoot them an email and move on to the next part while waiting for a response.

    If you're that concerned about accoustics, just wear ear plugs. Or, put a stereo in the shop and turn it up to 11.

    Technically it would be the CAM side of the CAD program. That's my bad. I use Camworks for programming which is integrated into Solidworks.

    Not sure why so many people are against evaluations. I think it's important to sit down with the guys in the shop and let them know where I feel they are excelling and where I feel they need to...

    You don't need to know G&M Code if you're programming in CAD. However if you want any chance in understanding what's happening or need to troubleshoot you should know the basics. For anything else a...

    The OP asked which controller was the most user friendly/easiest to learn. In my mind that's Haas hands down.

    I only wear mine to "special" events. Anniversary dinner, weddings, Christmas mass, etc. The wife gets it. I do the same thing with watches.

    Thread form with a tap extension should get you there. Coolant should be about 12% concentration, or turn off coolant and use anchor lube.

    We did this in our VF's as well. Same lights. Works great and is an easy splice.

    I'm not the most tech savy, but when you remote into a computer, I believe there is a bar that pops up on the screen that says it's being remotely viewed or operated. At least on Windows 10 anyway.

    One of our customers has subbed it out on a couple machined castings that they didn't have prints for. Critical features(ie. bearing bores) were still measured and modified by hand, but I think they...

    This is how I would do the first op with a 3axis mill. For just a couple, I would use a 3 jaw on the mill holding onto the OD of S18 with a jack under S5(or float a vise clamped on the s5 side for...

    As previously mentioned, go with a gun drill. I would then talk to Harvey Tool about a custom counterbore tool to bore the 2.1Ø to size and make your flat bottom.

    This. And if it's not an issue for them, ask them to provide you with sample parts and a quote to have the machine dropped on your floor turn key.

    There are pipes that are safe to use. We make them. However most metallic materials will have some form of toxicity when used for smoking.

    Can your operators drive a car without running out of gas? If not, then fire them. If they can't keep coolant in the machine and keep the concentration correct, you don't want them loading parts for...

    Certainly could. We do some similar shaped parts(different features) in rotaries. The one on the left would for sure be a one op part in the rotary. The second part would most likely be 3 ops with...

    What are your feeds/speeds, DOC, is tool coated, running coolant? The more info you can give about what's going on, the more likely people can help you.

    It's not a bad idea. It's cheaper to have a student start there then crash a VMC. I bet these will also take over at Skills USA, since it has a legit control. Outside of a learning environment, I...

    I'm with AD. You will need to know the location before putting the latch on. Once you have that, you can use some Loctite 609 or 680 depending on how tight or loose the fit is(don't forget the primer...

    If you're wanting these to last for a long time, I would go with DC53 hardened to a 58-62Rc. It's fairly stable at heat treat and basically has the best properties of D2 and A2.

    Mike's got it with this. Tools don't drop down into collets. They are cheap and durable and for the most part out of the way. I really despise the vertical tightening fixtures.
