    Remind your management of the advantages of commonality of parts, training, etc.

    I would be inclined to *think about* a scheme with some number of vises with large v-jaws in them. Said vises have fixed jaw very carefully aligned to table (and each other). They have a jaw that...

    Reminds me of looking up speeds and feeds in machinery's handbook, then looking at the footnote, and it was assuming something like '8" facemill and a 70hp spindle" !?!?!

    Yeah, I make it about 11 seconds - would be a special case where that was a deal breaker.

    Is there a way to precall the next tool, so the wheel starts sooner? (I got the impression not so from you post above, but maybe I was confused.)

    Rusty - what are the dimensions of the floor space it takes up (the footprint if you will?) [Likely a key reason you want it gone, no?]

    Here's a side track - the link Orange Vise pointed to claims that it is normal to "indicate in" VDI tooling. Really? Mine fits over a pin, I doubt it could move - of course I'll have to check. ...

    Zephyrous - on my dmu60 with iTNC 530 the boot sequence will automatically end up at a screen where you have to manually cycle start for the 4 (out of 5) axes that need to home. Does your machine...

    Here are some pictures. I bought this used, I think from a PM member.

    The device needs a better gib than I have, and is very heavy, so it doesn't get used as much as you would think. However,...

    Doall made (and I have an instance of) a miter gauge with screw drive - so you set the angle and turn a crank to cut the workpiece. The doall piece is quite heavy - it mounts to the faced holes on...

    Cash - do you use conventional coolants (at least conventional for grinding) in a system like that? Or does such a system require coolant that is "special" is some way?

    You might be ahead to focus on some kind of bug-O like track for your plasma or even for angle grinders.

    Your product makes sense, but those ends will be difficult (for the long case)

    Rereading - a marvel-8-mark-III goes up to 60° left/right (leaving a 30° included angle) - which doesn't get you to 20, and it's a big pricey saw. (I have an 8-mark-II and love it....)

    Mlinka - are you using iMachining, or a conventional pocketing operation? (I've never heard of volumill in conjuction with solidcam - but iMachining is their solution for that part of the market.)
