    Alternative option:
    Figure out who the manufacturer is for the McMaster part. McMaster will be there tomorrow and right, but they are more expensive.

    HSMworks lead-in/lead-out

    I am trying to machine the part shown in the picture. The actual machining is a straightforward step down with a face mill. Unfortunately, after the cutter clears the part, it is taking a wide loop,...

    Understanding general relativity is rather important to our everyday lives. No general relativity, no GPS. If you don't do basic research, you don't get any of the good things that come from it later.

    Taxes are all distortionary. The question becomes how do you raise the required revenue with minimal distortion.

    If you have a sales tax and your neighboring state is lower, it will harm...

    I think they can use any standard 6mm shank tool. Which means tools will be harder to come by, but not impossible.

    I don't think he has much of a choice but to keep doing what he's doing. If he can deliver the product late and up to hobbiest-grade standards, his backers will be okay. If he doesn't deliver, at...

    Chicago Dreis & Krump makes very nice manual machines. I have one of their hand brakes. It's war surplus but still works fine. I don't have one of their shears, but the look nice. 16ga x 52"

    My rep calls or e-mails me about once a year to check in; that's the only communication I get from Keyence. He also replies promptly to all of my questions. I can't ask for much more from a company.

    Maine theoretically taxes personal property at the same mil rate as real property, BUT there is a giant exemption and pretty much the only thing you actually pay tax on is furniture or stuff to run a...

    I've decided I need to up my file game. We use them primarily for chamfering and deburring; occasionally for making a square hole in sheet metal or slotting something with a round file. We are...

    I don't think you're going to find one shop that can do it all for parts between 1 inch and 30 feet. Some of the shops that deal with the big stuff are all-in-one, but only for that size range....

    That's actually an easy one, assuming you have <500 employees. If an employee can't work because of school/child-care issues, you can pay them 2/3rd pay (capped at $200) and the government pays for...

    The killer on those big mills is not only do you need space for the mill, you need open space next to it to flip parts.

    How high is your mil rate there? We're at a bit under $18. The numbers on expanding must be very marginal if the capital costs are worth it but the property taxes make it not worth it.

    I concur that it's overkill for 1/3 acre. I would definitely look at a robotic lawnmower. On 1/3rd of an acre, you can probably get away with one of the less expensive models.

    Check out Keyence. They can definitely do the small parts, don't know about the tubes.

    Always try to buy the control they do a bunch of. My past employer made this mistake once. We were a Fanuc shop and had some of the best Fanuc controls engineers around, so they wanted Fanuc on a...

    We had one of these at my last job: https://www.unionchemnitz.com/products-services/p-series/ IIRC, it had 14m of x, 5m of Y and 2m of Z, and the angled heads had quill travel as well.

    Ring gages are the OD equivalent to plug-gages/gage pins. Any machining/metrology supplier or McMaster sells them. As Finegrain points out, you still have all of the gaging issues that you have with...

    I don't think he's suggesting anything that complicated. If you look at the video of the failure, the initial break doesn't affect the crane that much. The ship however, starts to list to port,...

    I have off-subscription CAMworks, but I use HSMexpress. It is much faster and easier.
