    Hi Dj,

    Yes the picture showed up. I can understand you want your moneys worth and want to keep it nice. I try to take care of my stuff too, because all the checks come out of my pocket around here...

    I'm just going to repeat what I said earlier. The steel in those covers were compromised before you got the machine. How is anybody's guess. They were likely cleaned up as you have done with a scotch...

    I'm another who is not on board with this. I'll have a machine down for weeks sometimes and still no problems at all other then perhaps a vise left on a table too long and staining. I've now switched...

    I read somewhere awhile back it's mostly Naptha.

    I actually like the stuff. Got a rusty surface needs a little Scotch pad work? The WD does well there. Not a bad metal surface cleaner.

    Had another thought after re-reading the original post. This machines is new to you. If you brought it in and went immediately to a QualChem of any type, I can see where the inclination is towards...

    Many sellers use these screens of Run Time and Parts Count and so on when selling machines. I take them with a grain of salt as most if not all can be changed. At least on older Fanucs. I know...

    I think 251C is an EP version (and then some) of 250.

    Curious from the OP's picture if that staining isn't very fine chip scratching instead. I can see with heavy chip count and coolant flow...

    It's called a 2 flute HSS ball end mill. Should cut like butter. Just determine the width of the groove you want and dig out your chord-of-a-circle calculator and find the smallest ball end mill that...

    Ha-ha... Let's just say I saw the Beatles the first time they were on Ed Sullivan. And they give me discounts at the movies without even asking. Can't beat it.

    I thought a medium flat rate box...

    Hmmm... paying attention or not, I can't think of any material I'd run a 1/2 Drill in at 1.5 thou per rev. Sorry but no sympathy here... you had it coming. :-)

    But would you like to see my...

    Hello Panza,

    Wow, prices seem a lot different in your part of the world. Over $100 for an 8mm end mill is easily 3 times what I'd have to pay. I hope that thing is coated in gold. Or at least...

    The amount and level of information it appears you need to learn is far beyond what you could hope to get here. It would take many hundreds of posts by multiple people to even break the crust off of...

    Good news. Looks great. But now take that G0C60.0 near the top and make it the last line before M99 in your subroutine but change it to G0H60. Then change your first M98P100 to M98P100L6, and delete...

    Hello Panza,

    Glad to have helped you figure out the problem. Usually turns out that the machine control is right more then it's wrong.

    I have a lot of mill programming experience but am still...

    From the telltale shadowing on the large plate by those nuts, I'd say you are missing the position indicating dial in it's entirety. That or the plate that is there now is a poor mans replacement....

    No matter how much time, money and effort you put into that Grizzly conversion, it will always be a toy. All those machines I spoke of earlier would find the Grizzly little more then drier fuzz in...

    You don't say if you're on manual or CNC, but It would be easy enough to thread mill it.

    Double check your drawing and make sure every corner is indeed R4.1mm. You just never know. Sometimes on a mill of mine with close calls in comp, Ive had to shrink my tool radius offset ever so...

    I'm gathering that since you've been dreaming for decades you might be getting on the older side like me, but it's never to late to learn. By that I mean CNC machining. Once you've tried it you'll...

    Ahhh... a groove in a bore. Wasn't thinking about that. Yes a groove mic is one of the few options there. I have plenty of Starrett, but I have more Mitutoyo and really do like them better. Tend to...

    I have a Starrett groove mic. I'm assuming it's the same as the one mentioned. It's a nice tool no doubt, but I find them a little fussy in their use. They're not totally direct reading either. My...

    This is just stuff off the cuff from what I've read or tried or general machining experience has taught me. I confess that I'm no expert on HSM.

    I think one of the guiding rules for HSM and where...

    Just to be sure... when "sweeping" the taper, to me that means a stationary spindle being swept by a rotating indicator. Kind of like how you might use a mounted indicator rotated by the spindle to...
