    Are you running this on a Speedio/Brother? Did you program with G77 and I for the metric pitch (I.5). I find a lot of users misuse the G77 and try to convert the metric pitch into TPI and use J. To...

    My experience tells me we won't see D00 control on anything except the new W1000Xd1 for about a year. It is not simply a keyboard and display change. Practically every electrical component, save some...
  3. Small parts is a relative term. I wouldn't...

    Small parts is a relative term. I wouldn't recommend the M300X3 for parts smaller than 4"x4" or 3x3 especially if you need to reach the centerline at A90. The M200 gets closer to the spindle face and...
  4. Very nice machine for sale. This Speedio will...

    Very nice machine for sale. This Speedio will help someone make money. It has been said quite often that having a Brother R450X1 with it's integrated work changer pallet is like having a license to...

    Major difference is the new W1000Xd1 machines are available to order and the S1000X1 machines are all sold out! ;)
    The new D00 control is not just a larger touch screen. Too many new features to...

    G68.2 Tilted Work planes and G54.2 Rotary Fixture offsets are now available on Speedios.

    Nice thing about BBT is it is compatible with BT. You can use BT holders in a BBT and vice versa. You will only get the Dual Contact benefit if using a BBT holder in a BBT spindle.

    Thanks for chiming in. It's always great to hear from a user. I am going to check the measuring force specs on those.

    Edit: Had it handy, .9 N for Zpico (Blum for tools down to .002" *), 2.2 N for...

    Pete, thanks for the kind words about Brother and Yamazen. Much appreciated. Have you seen these:

    We have a terminology situation here. A tailstock refers to a dead or live center on a movable quill. Rotary builders offer tailstocks in manual quill or pneumatic/hydraulic quill activation. They...

    Anyone else out there have trouble with a Blum Znano? Pete, we have installed easily over 1000 Znanos and I can assure you and everyone that they have been one of the most rock solid reliable...

    That is a great list Greg. I would add the Blum Znano tool setter and tool detection probe (on about 95% of machines installed, users love it) and a Renishaw OMP40 or Blum TC52 spindle probe...
  13. That's right. The quote shows the Spindle option...

    That's right. The quote shows the Spindle option and Tool Wash option separate. The Tool Wash is a mandatory option when the BBT spindle option is selected though. That is why I say it is included....
  14. Diameter does matter. If you look at the cutting...

    Diameter does matter. If you look at the cutting forces the machine is dealing with, you have an axial 'vector' (length) and a radial vector (cutter dia.or distance from spindle centerline). Think of...
  15. What size cutters primarily? How far will you...

    What size cutters primarily? How far will you attempt to reach out and what will your max side wall height be? I've done a lot without big plus. One of my clients was machining a bore in an aluminum...

    Try David Russell at Lucy's Machine in Prescott AZ. They have been specializing in spindle liners and lathe accessories for years. Pretty sure they do extensions and supports. No affiliation, just a...

    The Quick Table page is in the Data Bank User Parameter screens. Your set up is a bit more advanced. Are you with Raycon?

    It also needs to be enabled in the Quick Table parameters. If it is enabled, it will tool change during pallet change with G100 or M6 as I recall. Difference is G100 can also position X, Y, A, B, C...

    Are you using the Pallet Start Switch, the Pallet Select Switch and the Quick Table User Parameters? There is a setting on the Quick Table parameter page. This is where you tell the machine what...

    Lookin' good. Hope you get some rest. Machine run nice?

    I may have missed it, but I am curious about what the parts look like? Do they fit in a 40" x 20" x 4" envelope? Is the average size a shoe box, deck of cards or pizza box? Do you need/want a rotary...

    Back in the day, Nikken offered their 3/4" BT30 mill chucks (mechanical shrink) in 2.5" (65mm) or 3" (75mm) gage length. The 65mm was the shortest around and I would use them and recommend them when...
