    Anything tighter than +/- .001" is holding tenths. +/- .0001" is within a tenth. But if you really want to know capability you have to do a capability study.

    The B&S is faster and cheaper, and you already have it. Why replace it?

    Well I know it ain't Mastercam. The license manager doesn't work that way.

    Might could do it on a 4 axis VMC with some steady rests. Another important consideration, is how many of these do you need to make?

    I've been using the Lang system for about five years, no complaints. I don't stamp, I dovetail hard stock and do nothing for soft stock (it will imprint when you close the vise.) Love being able to...

    I use HSMAdvisor and the Helical Machining Advisor. Both give good numbers and have slightly different strengths and weaknesses.

    Probably due to chips falling into the spindle taper during toolchange.

    Edit:
    Make it a five axis with the spindle rotating in the YZ plane, so it can flip over and toolchange right side up, or...

    Depends on a ton of factors. Material and heat treat, diameter, depth, lot size, am I out of tool slots, is cycle time or process reliability more important?

    I have a 2015 VF-3SS with a TR-160Y trunnion that was bought new with the machine. The A axis (tilt) brake will occasionally, once every several months, start hissing when the machine starts up for...

    I used to use Teraterm Pro. Also free, and super simple. Fits on a floppy disk.

    I find heat shrinks work great for 1/4" and up, ok of 3/16", and kinda sorta for 1/8". That tiny 1/8" bore has to heat up a lot to expand enough to get the tool in and out. So I have two long...

    The Haas will probably be happier with dynamic milling using a solid carbide endmill rather than slow full burial with large indexable cutters. I dynamic mill Ti and 17-4 with up to 1/2" solid...

    First, consider why you want to do this. If it's for the love of the endeavor, then more power to you. If it's to make money, well, it's kind of a flooded market; you'd better have an angle. Don't...

    Not sure how things are over there, but here (Minneapolis area) I could pick up a used EZ Trak (or similar) for under $15k, or a used Mini Mill for under $20k. Can get a used real VMC for $25k. Add...

    If you can't afford a Haas Mini Mill, even used, perhaps you should look at Tormach, Syil, or CNC Baron. Crossing fingers lest I be struck down for mentioning them.

    I use ER-16 and ER-11 standard collets with 1000PSI TSC and at most speeds when the coolant hits the collet nut it deflects inward enough to get into the cut. It beats the flood coolant that gets...

    Technically you can sell it. Create a corporate entity that owns it, and sell that. If it were up to date it would likely be worth the paperwork, but five years out of date probably not. ...

    If the spindle hasn't been above some temperature, I think maybe 70F, in a certain number of days, usually two or three. I believe these parameters can be changed. Also, the spindle "warm-up" isn't...

    IIRC, if you want to sell it, you have to sell a business that owns it. Also if someone buys it and wants to bring it current, they'll have to about pay the full price of the software, being five...
