    As far as aluminum roughing I have been using the same Maritool 1/2" 3 flute corn cob rougher in my old brother since I got it. Always in the super short Maritool side lock holder and high strength...

    Seems to me that the free market has already mostly beat this number. Just another example of the left buying votes with someone else’s money.

    Well I have to agree if it was crashing on a regular basis my blood pressure would get out of control. I haven’t seen this in the past few years. I’ve found a few bugs in CAM but I have been able to...

    Well, Solidworks and their CAM both make me money- not nearly enough but... Some of what I do is design work that i charge for. I also design and make my own products.

    Nice!

    I can't tell you how many times I thought it would be nice to have a little gang lathe. Seems like it would be super handy, for lots of simple parts. And second ops.

    CosmosK: I have not read the whole thread so hopefully what I say is not a rehash. Seems like you are in much my same boat as me - one man show.

    For sure designed to run 10k 100% of the time. I didn't replace my spindle because the bearings were bad but because it had a little more than .001" of runout. It still sounded fine. I probably could...

    Have you changed the batteries lately?

    I lost all the parameters on my a00 control once. Had to reenter the whole book of parameters by hand. No fun. I didn’t know to back it up prior to that.

    What got me into this is that I bought a Pipe pro 304. This is a diesel engine driven inverter welder with a 12k generator. Seemed like a handy thing on many fronts. It's basically a XMT...

    Glad he’s taking them back. Ebay’s buyer protection is very good. Depending on how you pursued it I don’t think he’d have a choice in the end. The seller just shot himself in the foot or maybe head...

    I looked more into my own Talon grip issue. As it turns out got a few unhardened talon grips. At first I just saw that they were not grabbing. I didn't notice that the nibs had rolled up until later....
