    If you haven't already, check out xometry supplies. I ordered 49 pieces of cut-to-length aluminum flat bar last week for less $ than uncut stock at my cheapest local supplier (I have three suppliers...

    I just did a quick build on the Haas site. With all those options (some aren't exactly identical anymore - expanded memory for example) and assuming a 10k spindle instead of 12k, the price comes to...

    Thanks for the replies. I'm a milling novice so I was kind of hoping there would be an idiot-proof feature on the master jaws that mates with the pallet to use as a work offset in cam setup. I...
  4. Anyone have experience with the Orange vise Twin Delta Pallet System?

    Is anyone using the twin delta pallet system offered by Orange Vise? I don't know too much about it and haven't really seen anything on youtube about it. I like the idea that there are no pins to...

    If the guy is legit and having sucess, that's great, but I had exactly the same thought reading his post. :D

    Maybe, as you said, it's just the way it's written. I'm sure if he's willing to share...

    I just watched an auction online yesterday that occurred in Tempe, AZ. They had a handful of MiniMills (aged 2012 and older - I think there was a redesign in 2013). The two newest machines went for...

    This may sound like a dumb or obvious suggestion, but make sure you always prepare a delivery receipt to bring with you to be signed and dated by the recipient. I've delivered things to small...

    Keep in mind that the W-2 will show wages (salary, bonuses, etc) but not your share of business profits. For those with ownership of an S-Corp, a multi member LLC, or an LLC taxed as an S-Corp, this...

    When you see Inc, it means subchapter C corporation or subchapter S corporation. Comparing this to an LLC isn't straightforward because you can be an LLC taxed as a sole proprietor (disregarded for...

    The first part of your post is correct about options for tax treatment of an LLC. The part quoted above is incorrect. Cash can most definitely accumulate on the balance sheet of an LLC, S-Corp, or...
  11. C-Corps are subject to an entity-level tax,...

    C-Corps are subject to an entity-level tax, S-Corps are not. I would assume Insert is focusing on the tax burden of the individual and means that if you are an owner of a C-Corp, you can avoid...

    You probably didn't make the wrong choice.

    You can be an LLC and have all income pass through to you and your wife or you can choose to be an LLC and actually make an election to be taxed as an...

    You may already be well aware, but just in case you aren't, you can buy a Chinese fiber laser with rotary for about $4k. If it's a one time job or you aren't interested in Chinese machines, maybe...

    I don't think Saunders was ever in the Navy. I've seen most of his videos and podcasts and never heard that mentioned.

    The $2.5M is a spending cap that phases out the section 179 deduction for larger businesses. Section 179 is meant to be an incentive for small business capital spending, so anything you spend over...

    The first buyer is the American importer, not necessarily the end user. In many cases, the importers are eating the tariff as much as possible hoping it will disappear before their business is...

    Looks like you may have a depth issue. If you're using two different tools, you may need to double check the lengths. If you're using the same tool for the adaptive and the contour, go to the...

    I agree, can't blame them...until you see that they're listing a 10 year old machine for 90% of what it's currently selling for new. At least, that's how it feels when I see most listings of Haas...

    I've marked some parallels and a 1-2-3 block just to test it on steel and it worked fine. Haven't tried stainless but I suspect it wouldn't be an issue.

    My reason for buying it is to quickly mark...

    I bought one of the 20w Chinese fiber lasers from ebay about a month ago. I bought it from a California seller so I didn't have to deal with any of the FDA import requirements.

    $25k IS a little too much to invest in a Tormach.

    If someone is willing to spend that kind of money, you're getting pretty darn close to a new low end Haas MiniMill. If anyone is buying a...
