    I would agree with that.

    Another thing that your machine might have is adjustment valves on the solenoids to control the speed at which air goes to the cylinders. They may be out of adjustment if...

    I'm not a CNC lathe guy, just a mill guy.

    But in high school, we had a bunch of Leblond lathes. Ran em a lot. Was told to wrap parts in emery cloth, or with shim stock, if we needed to not have...

    We have an electric "buzzer" that sounds kind of like a whistle on our Makino A88. Very very annoying. Effective but annoying.

    It is wired into the pallet cone air blast solenoid, so when it...

    Yes, that's the kind of tool I'm talking about. Although that is not the video I saw, the concept is the exact same. The tool I saw also looked more like a boring head, with 2 arms, rather than a...

    Definitely don't need more than one form insert to do this. I drew 2 because that's what the tool I saw looked like, but 1 would suffice.



    I can, and I would. The part I need to make has a...

    If your machine has any spare m-codes with finish signal, you could have a switch in the machine (somehow, that is up to you!) that is open when there is a part in the sub, and closed when the part...

    No, I don't think it is super clear yet even with the illustration.

    They had form inserts in the tool like I drew above. The "effective diameter" of the inserts was larger than the part in the...

    No.

    I'm thinking of a tool that would be like this:

    Please excuse my very professional drawing.
  9. External milling form tool needed - Can't figure out what tool is called?

    I saw a video a while back of a machine machining some sort of manifold that had a bunch of male features sticking out of it.

    What I found interesting about the video is that they had a 2 headed...

    You only get that alarm when trying to clear the other alarm? Are you trying to clear the reference alarm by homing the machine out?

    There might be hard overtravel switches on your machine. These...

    What kind of price range are you looking to spend...

    What kind of price range are you looking to spend for your used HMC? 30k? 100k? That will change the "how much more" answer.

    We have 3 horizontals, all have .001 on the rotary, and let me tell you...

    That is a great idea! Next time I have large enough cutout, I'll make the bolt pattern the same as standard jaws!

    That is kind of brilliant.

    If the windows are small, or the slug is not worth salvage, make chips.

    Sometimes I am able to fixture plates that have big through features high enough off the table that the slugs fall safely to...

    It makes me happy to see a LMGTFY link. I'm a bit surprised to see that they have their own "search engine" now (that they definitely skim from google). It used to show a google search, and bring you...

    All the time I've programmed the probe to check stuff and I never once noticed that O9810 had an optional input that I could use to generate the custom message "(YOU LOADED IT WRONG DUMBASS)" rather...

    Are you measuring the hole your drill gives you?

    You can drill a bit under and ream to size. This also allows you to make up for tight/loose % engagement by tenths if needed.

    I would not use...

    I second the idea that you should be mixing it before you put it in the machine. If not manually mixing it in a bucket, there are also mixers that mixes coolant for you; just hook up a water hose to...

    I'm not real confident in my troubleshooting so hopefully someone else comes along with better information and more knowledge of it.

    Looking in a 15MB manual, I've found a couple things worth...

    Also, can you post some of your code that you are sending to the machine?

    I don't have much to add because most things said already I agree with (distance to go, rapids, dry run, etc).

    But if you're making a manual or instruction pamphlet, may I suggest you make a...

    I don't have experience with your brand. We use Iscar (tools are made by the same manufacturer as Carmex threadmills too)

    Googled your threadmill number, found the catalog. It says the minimum...

    I know you said you've tested it but have you checked for the status of whichever X signal it is going into the PMC? Is that bit switching when you toggle the switch?

    I guess see if you can get ahold of mitee bite and if they will swap em out for you?

    If it were me, I would modify that fixture slightly and have 2 talon grips per part instead of one. For...
