    Put in on a rotary table on the manual as an A axis to do the radial work and a C axis to do the faces and pop the holes.

    I started running it today and haven't had a single issue. The more I think about it the biggest cost it going to be lost time from learning and not knowing new software. Because of this I don't...

    oneCNC seems like good software but it isn't going to work for me. It isn't parametric, has no lofting feature and has limited control of things like keeping the tool down which is a deal breaker for...

    When in doubt don't eat it. Years ago men worked in this industry and focused on being a more skilled tradesman, not finding every little thing to whine and complain about. I'm sure McDonalds has a...

    Looking back at the original post I would say your feeds and speeds are a little on the aggressive side, at least once you start getting deep. A 0.050" peck wouldn't be unreasonable IMO. If your cam...

    I think this gets back to not taking on work you aren't equipped for. Sometimes you have to tell the customer it would be cheaper if they went somewhere that was equipped to handle the job.

    I will say the 100 degree edge is fantastic for heavy roughing on a manual, especially if there is nasty...

    I've never understood why people go with CNMG over WNMG unless they are using the 100 degrees sides for heavy roughing. Only reason I even own any CNMG holders and bars is cause I ended up with a...

    Twist has nothing at all to do with runout, it induces taper. Try a two collar test and then level the twist out and try again. There are countless threads on leveling lathes.
