    No, I tried that. It did not like that.




    Yeah... I think I will do looking for one of those, anyway. Apparently, Haas is using some of the same variables that are being used for our probing...

    Originally posted in the macro fundementals thread, but getting no responses so thought that it may indeed be a Haas issue, rather than a macro issue. Have no idea, actually. Still, posting in case...

    I'm not sure if this is a Haas issue specifically, or a macro issue...

    Is it possible to use a variable's value for the text to be engraved while using Haas's G47 macro function**?

    It's all yours if you want it. It will not fit our needs on this one. Lazz is fantastic to deal with, so have fun.

    If you don't already have an outlet for the form tools that you love, speak with Alf, Jon, and Larry at AB Tools. They're my go-to's for forms when we need them.

    Yes, it is possible. It's not a canned cycle that I am aware of, so you'll need to think a little and string together the PROBE, RESULT, INPUT, MOVE OFFSET sequences. But it's a fairly common series...

    Lazz,

    WTB - 8" Independent Four Jaw Chuck

    Looking for a four jaw chuck approximately 8" in diameter. It will not be going on a lathe, so one of the thinner ones like used to be used with dividing heads would be as good.

    Bonus points if...

    Second vote for Ash. That said, for 6 pieces, you might consider farming it out. An acquaintance is in Perth and they do top notch work, reasonably. I know it's a little more than 2.5Km, but shipping...

    Pre Hard is rarely actually more than 25/26 C scale. Throw the lump in, harden and temper it to 43/45, and then machine it. It will machine nicely, leave a great finish, and perform very well for...

    I should have been more clear. My apologies.
