    Zach- Glad to hear you're not taking this as a personal attack, never was meant as one. I will say that I may have misunderstood all the dynamics of the situation. If the punch is way smaller than I...

    -Yes it should be sufficient but apparently it's NOT sufficient if it doesn't fit. Is it possible that there's something as simple as a mismatch in the radii? Have you checked for clearance with a...

    New to me too, never seen one in a shop. Parts may/may not be interchangeable with other makes. Above post comment about condition is sound advice

    How large/small are your clearances? Yeah I would guess that lapping can be a big PITA sometimes. Standard spline/base radii shapes? Are you checking the die for print accuracy from the WEDM before...

    -I use SolidWorks, thought your screen shot looked like it. Never used Fusion so I have no reference. I thought most of the solid modeling programs (mostly) were either object>action or action>object...

    No reason to feel dumb, it's just another area you're not familiar with yet. I'm just getting acquainted with Master Cam after decades of being away from tape fed machines, MDI, and back when a...

    -"If it checks out ok" was part of the post. Reading/quoting just part of a statement strikes me as a sort of sloppy conception.

    Looks like you have a CAD program for solid modeling. Care to share a screen shot of the assembly model? Not interested in stealing your work/numbers just curious about the overall concept you have...

    These examples seem to be much better quality if they're made by the older R.I. company than the more recent Asian crap I wouldn't bother with. Most examples of the R.I. stuff was already in worn...

    If you've made the radii of punch/die by offset of the material thickness then springback is to be expected and may change in the middle of the coil, let alone from one coil to another. Die design...

    A good buy for a fab shop that just needed to touch up cutting edges for flat top punch or die. If that's a fine adjust dial on the back side it's faster (if a bit more crude) than using a surface...

    Would I like to see the build? Sure, why not? I've have/had need in similar situations now and then too. As I get older I find the work hasn't gotten any lighter.

    Agree with the above post. A functional gauge for a student project is a good idea but bending for the angle is going to be difficult and likely disappointing for a student. Sawing out of plate can...

    You're correct in stating that grinding can/should be another level of precision than milling/turning. Any decent grinder should be easily able to handle the +/- .001 in accuracy just by...

    It's going to depend upon your expectations and requirements. Are you certain you need all the 40" of table travel to grind your products? That increases the price of the grinder & wheels quite a...

    Aarongough, most (if not all) of this was proposed in Post #5 but never replied to by the OP. Perhaps the weight of two will launch further investigation. Hope you're doing well.

    I've made some parts with Ferro-TiC and I'll include a word of advice. There "should" be a data sheet with the material (used to be) that advised the speed/feed rates for machining. Do NOT deviate...
