    Probably 50% of what we machine is plastics. Ultem, Acetal, FR-4, Polycarb, Semitron, Torlon, you get the idea. Going on 13 years now and have never, ever had an issue with coolant due to plastics....

  7. The worst part about small lots is the coolant. ...

    The worst part about small lots is the coolant. It's spendy getting the coolant ready with additives or even changing a sump out completely.

    My experience is with AZ31, which is a cast plate. Not sure about other alloys, but this alloy is only available in plate as far as I remember... this was 8 years ago I think. I bought a type D...

    Yes they are a little pricey, but tenth increment pins give you so much confidence in what you're doing, you'll forget about the price in short order.

    Also, air gaging only goes down to Ø.040" to...

    You guys have seen a Haas do a tool change after running thru coolant? Everything, (tool shank, spindle taper, ball grippers and everything else) is dripping wet with coolant. I'm thinking that...

    Huh, I guess I missed something good. What finally got him the banned? Please tell me Boris was resurrected and got him with Mr. Slammy.
  13. Why not just ask Kennametal for the inch version?...

    Why not just ask Kennametal for the inch version?

    No CAM on the premises?

    Damn. If this is true, then I feel like an idiot for sticking up for them. Sounds like just another dumb shit after all. Sigh. People suck.

    Thanks for the update.

    In my experience you are right on. Flat billers, Bro Dozers, and the type that thinks it's funny to blow their fucking train horn when passing pedestrians. In general, giant dooshers.

    $154 is too much for a 50-millionths-reading mic? I pay more than that for calipers!!! Mitutoyo Top 200

    Mits .0000,50" / .001mm mics is all I'll ever buy unless I ever need something bigger.

    Thanks Pete. I've been hearing that as well, but the customer doesn't really care about aesthetics with this, it's just in-house tooling.

    With that said, my anodizer would rather deal with K100...
