    I think the die makers handbook by jerry arnold might have a good reference.

    These are really hard to beat for the price.

    or just write a program better suited to vf2 travels?

    not trying to be a smart ass, but it's a simulation for training/learning so...? X "travels" 10" or 40" should not matter for that purpose

    Funny stuff... why does termite turn every post into some nonsensical BS... <sigh>...

    NGC does auto recovery by default, but if it doesn't work it will walk you through step by step, homing the arm, moving the pot up/down etc. Not sure what you mean about testing though.

    R8 is 7/16-20

    What is this "special tool" you speak of?? Last I knew it was called a drift (or drill drift), pretty standard tool in a machine shop.

    They were shiny... = expensive to a pawn shop! LoL... I might do $10-20 each for the set. likely a 1000+ grit paper would fix them up and still be within tenths (providing the rust IS just surface...)

    Yep, oil-lite would be a good choice. If your shaft is a nominal/standard you can buy to size too, no machining required (well maybe cutting to length).

    What version/year of solidworks? I'm not a huge fan, but smart dim's work fine for me... but I mostly use it in 2d, not creating planes and such to create models..

    You say ground by hand? like taking a small nick out.. or some clown trying to "dust" up the entire spindle??!?

    I don't know how old you are Dual, but I was a video game addict, troublemaking teenager in the early 90's and I managed to "turn it around". :D

    Are you giving it a tool change position (editing in by hand), or is the vps generating the entire tool change command line? Do you have a toolchanger on this? 4 or 8 position? Couldn't tell you why,...

    I didn't read all of this thread, but this was my opinion as well. I've tried the free stuff, after using Pro level stuff for years (MCAM, Pro-E, NX, Inventor, et etc) and that shit is free, or low...

    Maybe some one can clarify. On the mazak smooth controls, the spindle/machine did not like taking a tool out manually. Screwed it all up

    I bought a couple used federals in the early 90's. Expect they were a good ten years old then. Still working fine. Otoh, been thru 2 interapids since early 2000's. I gave up on them

    I think the bigger Capto are signicantly more rigid with the tri-lob/ellipse shape coupled with dual contact. Can't find it, but I believe you ^ are right about the graphs/studies. Tradeoffs for all...

    In my example, we often ran into the yellow, and squeaked into the red on every cut. Probably want to set at zero to figure out what machine will and won't do

    The LNMX we were using on 4140 PH. Both on OD/face tools and boring bars. No problem breaking a chip, sounded like nickels hitting the door. This was an SL series to not be mistaken, don't know how...
