    I suspect I am here for some of the same reasons as Dualkit.

    1) I hate BS'ers and liars
    2) Newbies come here asking for help with something really basic* and then get bent out of shape by post 5...

    Ya, that doesn't sound good at all. $182 per part, including all machining (time, setup, programming), material, purchasing, tools, shipping.... doesn't leave much to put in the wallet unless all the...

    I've done more than a few jobs that were not a fit for us/our equipment over the years. It always ended in a...

    We used that a couple jobs ago for our 'expense reports'. Although, since I was a 'special case' (having an AMEX card even though I was a lowly machinist and all) the bosses secretary did mine for...

    I'm probably the exact opposite, I hate working on anything these days (and I am 45, not a millennial!) , I would just as soon pay someone and have my time. I am a fairly generous person (money,...

    If you are asking if you can just "run the bigger tap in" me thinks you are not a machinist of any sort. No offense, just wanted to offer a suggestion that you practice on a scrap piece or two and...

    Not sure which is worse, no prices and having to call or email, or all the dreamers on Ebay. For a mere $9500 you can get a retrofit b-port with milltronic controls..... or a Fadal vmc40 for $6800? I...

    Not only do I like Haas as most of you know, I have the most experience with them (cnc machine) AND the online pricing is a huge plus to me. We are getting ready to buy 3 new Haas vf's and it is...

    There's the rub, you have a cell waiting to do their work. Most shops have to schedule jobs around other jobs, material ordering, tooling, etc. No way the 'average' shop can do 2-4 day turn-around...

    I don't know, but wouldn't it be easier to modify your special tool with a 'standard' round or square shank and set your insert / tool tip height accordingly by machining the shank where needed?

    All I can say is I'm glad I haven't needed to use a floating tap holder in forever! :ack2:

    I know we are talking a little different things here, but that is only true with a manual machine. On a cnc, you need to know what the tool will do, and then program accordingly. We run .006-.01"end...

    It is called out as 0.0 deviation at MMC (the M in a circle) = maximum material condition. I don't see datum A on the print, but am assuming it is centerline of the part? If so just be sure to turn...

    Writing off the whole machine because no G92 huh? :rolleyes5:

    What was wrong? You should post what was found so people who might do a search see a conclusion on how you fixed the engraving problem.

    The integrex I worked with was pretty roomy on the inside I thought. The only thing I saw that *might* be a problem is when the B axis is inline (90deg?) with the spindles and I could see some...

    I'm not convinced it is a strength issue. I've used inserted bars down to 3/16". The problem I always had was the teeny tiny torx screw to mount the insert, drop it and it's gone!
