    What do you think companies can do to make sure that this happens in practice?

    I think it should be baked into the Return On Investment calculations. If we factor in the cost of, say, training...

    It's more a question than an assumption. Anyway, I'm starting to come to the conclusion that you are correct. Generally speaking, automation isn't putting people out of jobs. I have seen a company's...

    What we do, and what we should do, are two very different things. If "bad" and "moral" and "good" are meaningless abstractions, as others have implied, then so are "useful" and "productive" and...

    I am not suggesting that survival is not a priority. I am suggesting that survival is impossible. Therefore, one cannot justify bad actions in the name of survival.

    If automation is found to do...

    Several people have argued something like this:
    "Automation is necessary to compete."

    I think when most people say "compete", in this context, they are talking about survival. Competing, not...

    The Ethics of Automation

    Not to put a damper on Progress, but I think it's good to take a step back sometimes and make sure we're going in the right direction.

    Is automation good or bad?

    Some points to consider are as...

    It's hard to understand what you're asking. It sounds like you're trying to find the point on the curve of the tool that will achieve a 7.5-degree chamfer. Then maybe you also want to find the point...

    It was part of a filtration system by Ebbco, but I don't know the model of the pump itself off-hand. It was 20gpm at 40psi.

    I needed more pressure, and I went with a bigger pump. It worked.

    This may go without saying, but did you use a G43 H command in your program to specify the tool height compensation?

    I discovered that there is also a parameter 734:29 on the classic control. Still, no help on the new control.

    It would have been much simpler to change a byte of data than to buy a whole new...

    I don't know about Mistaway, but we have been using a Royal Filtermist FX300 on our Haas TM-1 for about 4 years. I had to make paneling to close off all the gaps, since the TM-1 is an open design....

    FYI, 'buffering' I think may also be referred to as 'look ahead' on some machines.

    There are other ways to block buffering. I think G53 is a confusing way to do it because G53 is also how you use...

    To this I would say maybe instead of adding 4mm each time, subtract: #501= #501 - 4.

    Invert Skip on NGC

    Simple question: how does one set the Invert Skip parameter on the Next Generation Control, on a Haas TM-1 machine?

    On my old machine (Classic Control), I would set parameter 57, bit 23.

    Here's a useful tip I just discovered. I am using a Haas TM-1 from just before they came out with the Next Gen Control (around 2016).

    Theory of Metal Machining

    When it comes to machining metal, I think it would be helpful to be able to predict cutting forces mathematically. I realize that the average machinist may not need to do this precisely, but this...

    The grinding jig is a good idea, but it would need to be larger than the NSK ones I'm finding. We have a 3.5" wheel... I guess "light grinding" is a relative term. I have a 5.6kW machine and the...

    Have you measured the decibels at 6000rpm, by chance? Noise is a factor. Though yours is a speeder and not an angle, the sound may give a hint as to how well their gears are designed.
