    Actually no I didn't. Yes, I see your comments with "My guys" or "My employees" often, but a shift leader could claim that.

    You probably just summed up every aerospace shop/machinist in existence.

    Tread lightly with that. The way I'm reading into this is you don't have a CAD/CAM seat, you are using someone elses version? Most EULA's don't allow for that. I was using my own seat of Featurecam...

    The EC-400 only has 20" in Z so if your bit is 15" and the part is 17" don't think that's going to be much help. You could step up to a 1600ZT and get 40" but that's $200k base.

    Can you just set...

    Agreed, I don't think they set foot in China. Out of all the factories I have been in I have never seen a licensed seat. When I was teaching at the Gaungdond/Zhongshan Poly Tech they gave every...

    I get the part where you want to speed up a process but in your application do you really think that's a good decision? You admittedly are not familiar with carbide drills but since your shop has...

    If you are not shifting the tool over half the diameter you will get about that much error. The tool setter is 10MM and since endmill bottoms taper inwards towards the center its actually straddling...

    You could take a test indicator and a drop piece of round bar to check for taper and maybe sweep the turret but even those are just minor things. Obviously just listen for things out of the ordinary...
