    Yes, this. It takes about 15 seconds to load a page on my phone. On my PC, no issue. I assume a tracking cookie is trying to do something and takes 15 seconds to time out.

    In my town there's a little "dealer" that only sells work trucks. Not sure how or why, but just rows and rows of plain white fords. I've never stopped in to inquire why, I always assumed it was for...

    Well, it was an interesting few hours this afternoon at our Pittsburgh R&D shop. Mid-afternoon the governor announced a closure of all "non-essential" businesses in the state for two weeks. No...

    No structural problems? That's... optimistic. The amount of zombie debt in China is staggering. Compound that with a complete loss of revenue for a couple months, and it becomes... problematic.

    Amps are amps, the mill doesn't know it's in a residential space. I run a CNC router (12hp spindle) with a 10hp vacuum pump in my garage. Works fine. You'll pull about a hundred amps with the load...

    Which is great, but a spiral flute tap pulls the chips up behind the cut, so once you run out of flutes, they pack up and snap.

    Or keep faffing about looking at your collets. Your choice.

    I'd be shocked if your tap even had .65" of flutes. The deepest M2.5 tap on McMaster only goes 1/2" and Balax doesn't have anything deeper in that size either. If you run out of flute, you snap...

    If you intend to do a lot of live milling, get a bolt-on turret rather than a VDI one. I have one of each, and aligning cross tools on the VDI one (an Okuma Genos L200EMY) is a bear.
