    Since all you ever see of 3D printing is some nerd in his mom's basement, or a million dollar pipe dream, I thought I'd shoot a quick video of 3 printers working in a real shop. Our tiny print farm...

    Hi Tony. I liked the one I bought enough to buy two more! We ended up with a 3D printed product that we sell, and are also getting in to printing custom packaging for some of our more delicate...

    For those asking about stripping and re anodizing, my experience is parts will come back .0004" or so smaller, and much less shiny.

    The answer to all of your questions is "no". We cut the blanks out of several bars of Kaiser round bar, all 6061, all machined in the same batch on the same machine with the same..... well,...

    Thanks guys. We have packaged the entire order now, and all other colors (red, green, purple, grey and clear) were very consistent. We have always had excellent results from this shop in other...
  7. Anodizing color consistency question

    Do you guys fight color consistency from your anodizer? Or do all your parts come back the same exact color no matter what?

    Our anodizer has been great over the years, mostly doing black type...

    We are super lucky to not have had issues so far, other than people not measuring things we asked them to measure before purchasing. It's encouraging that other platforms have less of these issues,...

    This depends if the item you're buying is FBM (Fulfilled by Merchant) or FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon). We are strictly FBA, so we send inventory in to Amazon fulfillment centers and they handle the...

    As someone who sells on Amazon, I can tell you that this is in no way correct. Amazon customer service (and seller support) is famous for telling you whatever gets you off the phone the fastest.

  11. Pricing needed for custom shop stuff lost in fire

    A couple years ago we had a wild fire come through and we lost our house and my home shop. We are still doing battle with the insurance company, and they want quotes for all the custom built stuff...

    I will be cross posting this in the fabrication forum.

  13. Wireless ear buds / head phones with noise cancelling - Any suggestions?

    I let operators listen to music or whatever. The deal is, though, that if I have to repeat myself one time when talking to someone, the privilege goes away. Usually they will keep one ear bud in...

    Thanks Pete. The issue I have is that I want to trademark our logo so we can get the full package of listing tools from Amazon for a product we just put on there, so of course time is an issue. ...

    Trademark - Who did you use?

    For those of you that hired someone to trademark your company logo, do you mind sharing who you were happy with and about how much it cost?

    I've come across a lot of mentions of it costing $500 or...

    You got the application, more or less. We have made Torlon parts for this customer before and make Ultem stuff for them constantly. They have been doing this stuff for decades, so I trust that the...

    As much as I enjoy learning new things and being the hero to our customers, I no-quoted this one. Thanks a lot for all the advice fellas, and have a good weekend.
  18. MACOR GLASS CERAMIC advice needed - VMC

    I've been asked to quote this. We would run these in the Haas VF-2ss which has 12,000 RPM and thru coolant. I have never dealt with this material before, but there is quite a bit of information...

    I ended up buying a Prusa. It's smaller than I would like at 250 x 210 x 210mm build volume, but I was more attracted to the apparent overall quality of the printer itself, and mainly the software...

    I should have been more clear. I need 300x300mm build plate minimum, and wouldn't mind 400x400 if the bed doesn't take 3 hours to heat up.

    Drill press. I almost never wear safety gear, but I...

    Long shot: Suggest a 3D printer

    I bought a $300 Monoprice Maker Select (basically a toy) to prototype a product and thinking I might play around with it a little bit. I'll be damned if I'm not using the thing every other day to...

    Thanks Street, the waterjet issues you talk about are exactly what I was afraid of.

    Open to suggestions on how to make these. I worry about waterjet and the typical 'tit' left at the start / stop location on the OD. I can tolerate maybe a .020" high tit, but that's just a...

    Believe it or not, these two are actually worth putting time in to. Both have real drive to do a good job, but need a lot of help getting there. One is starting from scratch, and one was taught...
