    All machines deflect, but isolating where it's happening can be time consuming. I'm a little confused that you'd spend all that money and effort on an old Haas, but IIWII...

    I've bought small quantities of exotics from hpalloy at "reasonable" prices. Check them out, as well as Rolled Alloys, Inc. - Global Leader in Specialty Metals.

    Natural diamond chip cutters are best, compacted diamond next, then Al-specific carbide inserts. A light coat of lube or alcohol on the finish passes helps if the alloy is gummy.

    Too compliant from the glue layers between shim elements. Also courser adjustment than what they want. But good for other applications.

    Sounds like the best excuse ever to buy a small, high frequency, metal cutting fiber laser. Ideally one of the ablation versions, but I think those are still beaucoup bucks right now.

    Check into brazing or even hard silver soldering for the broken bit. Easier than nickel welding in cast iron, and about as strong.

    He's being quite clear - Brother should stop using Bondo to make its pull studs. This is why they fail after only a few thousand cycles.

    At least, that's how I interpreted his post. That, or the...

    We do what we can, John. ;). I doubt the OP's is hugely heavier (or tinyly lighter? We don't say that, do we?).

    No thanks. And next time you have Chinese, perhaps you'll order a Nanjing Massacre? Or a Korean Comfort Slave? Those are drinks, aren't they?

    Ask the Brits (9,000 dead in the attacks), or the 12,000 or so dead from forced labor in the making of the weapons if that's in good taste. I don't think it is.
