    Thanks Jim.

    Just did a test cut and those numbers worked great.

  2. Thread size for HLV-H Tailstock spindle 1/2 nut?

    Just about finished restoring my new HLV-H and couldn't figure out why the tailstock would not eject tooling. Come to find out the the previous owner had left out the rear half nut and jam nut!

  3. Thanks! gm.

    Thanks!

  4. How does Kluber NBU 15 compare to Die Makers Grease?

    I bought a tube of Kluber when I rebuilt the spindle in my CNC and have quite a bit left over. Now I'm restoring an HLV-H and the tool post reassembly instructions call for Die Makers Grease, which...

    Will do, and thanks to you and Mark.

    And yes...the schematic is missing! Very frustrating.

  6. Help with HLV-H. Carriage Feed motor stopped. KLD8220 wiring.

    After many years of looking, I finally scored on an HLV-H. 1985 model and quite the upgrade from my 1948 TL.

    Machine is in great shape and I stole it at auction for $2,800! (Might be a little...

    Thanks for all the feedback. Excellent ideas.

    I'll start with the Delrin since I have it on hand and see how it goes. Making the movable jaw modular will allow me to change it if...
  8. What Material To Us For Vise Jaw That Will Compress Slightly More Than Aluminum?

    I'm cutting the vise jaws for a production run of 200 small parts. I want to hold 15 parts across a 10" vise jaw. I've done this in the past with 6" jaws but if one or two of the parts are say,...

    Just tried it again and here's a pic of the simple model. The radius is 0.10". and the cavity is 1.95" square. Tool is 1/8 endmill.

    Making a large radius doesn't accurately simulate the problem...

    The specific problem I'm having is with 2D Contour of a pocket. In fact, before posting, I did a simple model of a square cavity in a block and programmed a 2D Contour of the inside of the...

    Well, if you're noticing the issue also then they STILL haven't fixed it!

    I actually had a tech rep dial into my computer and try to run it himself on my machine. He did a simple model in Fusion...
  12. Anyone Else Having Trouble With HSMWorks FEED OPTIMIZATION

    I've been trying to get feed optimization to work with HSM for quite some time now. I even had tech support on the line and demonstrated that it doesn't work. He admitted the problem and said he...

    Thanks Mike and yes, that is exactly what I've had to do. It's not that big of a deal. It's just that the actual part is rather complicated and has multiple 2D, 2.5D and some 3D contours so the...
  14. Thanks for the replies. I do all my modeling in...

    Thanks for the replies. I do all my modeling in Solidworks and CAM it out using HSMWORKS, which uses the same engine as Fusion. I did go ahead and post the same question on the Fusion site and was...
  15. How to chamfer a 2.5D profile in HSMWORKS/FUSION without using TRACE?

    I'm trying to chamfer a 2.5D profile. When I use TRACE, it works, but it treats the ARCs as SPLINEs and programs a lot of data points which cause data-starving on my older control.

    Is there a...

    Thanks! I'll give it a try.

    Thanks for the reply and, yes, I did bother to look. I was just a little confused about this line from the chart: "slotting depth of 1.0 x Cutting Diameter, for deeper slotting reduce feed and...
  18. DOC Recommendation for .150 slot with .125 endmill?

    What would be an optimal DOC setting to cut a 0.150 wide slot that is 0.321 deep in 6061? Slot is open on one end.

    Currently I'm taking a 0.040 DOC at 30ipm with good flood coolant. I have 130...

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping you would.

    Yes, I've tried a 3D sketch as well. I don't understand this because I've successfully done a similar chamfer routine and even "protected" the...
  20. Does HSMWORKS TRACE treat "arcs" as "splines" when they are not modeled as "splines"?

    Wondering if anyone has run into this problem.

    I'm trying to program the chamfer on a moderately involved part using trace because the chamfer geometry involves some edges that change in Z as...

    I think its being held ok... using 4" high 1" thick aluminum vise jaws.

    Don't have a 3-flute on hand and I'm trying to finish the job this weekend. I do have a 1/2" 2-flute high helix HSS but I thought it would be less rigid and thus lead to more chatter. Is my thinking...
  25. Speed and Feed to reduce chatter marks in a 2.75 inch depth?

    Having trouble eliminating chatter marks in a deep pocket.

    Material is 6061. Final depth is 2.75 inches.
    Using a 1/2" 6-flute HSS end mill with 3 inch flute length.
    Pocket geometry is 0.6 x...
