    Apparently they are ...

    London Metal Exchange: LME Steel Scrap

    No idea how big the effect is but .... ?
  2. Flat belts and plain bearings are better for...

    Flat belts and plain bearings are better for precision - look at a Crystal Lake some time. They just don't transmit as much power, so the South Bend is not big on hogging. But it's nice to run, for a...

    I wonder if this wasn't maybe an anomoly, maybe caused by people playing in the commodities market or some other mass hysteria ? Tulips once brought big money, too.

    I've never got doodly for...

    CellCon maybe ?

    I would toss it. The blades are not very expensive, even if you did fid a box or two of 1980 inserts, you'd just have the same problem again next time. Get a new holder and move on with life, in this...

    Pacemakers or the old clunkers ? I would not buy American or a Monarch that's older than about 1942. 50's is better.

    They are just too slow and clunky. Even 1,000 rpm and the small thru-hole of...

    In other words, you've never run silicon carbide in a bead blaster so you have no idea what you're talking about. As usual.

    Oops, those aren't daffodils ... what's that little white flower called ?


    Sigh. Another hard night's work in the reanimatorium ahead, then :(

    Cute. But no relevance to reality. You've obviously never done this. WITH a ground lead alligator clamped to the part you're blasting, WITH the blaster heavily grounded, WITH clean fresh beads, WITH...

    Try blasting with silicon carbide beads. It'll zap your teeth out, even through those heavy rubber gloves.

    But it sounds like his ground fault thingy trips even before he turns on the blaster, so...

    Maybe toss up a photo of the part ? I don't think anyone is going to graze through all those points to see what you're talking about.

    If it's a swoopy shape, search "import point cloud" for some...

    Bridgeport ? Milland, shame shame ! You wrote '.005" wire' in that same sentence as Bridgeport ! That's the worst advice I've ever seen from you !

    One of those little Electro-Mechano high speed...

    Yes, first step, take the tubes out and run them down to your neighborhood Thrifty drugstore and check them on the tester :)

    Boy am I glad I never had one of these easy-to-use controls.

    G92 is killer.

    Cleveland and I think Lees-Bradner built eight-spindle hobbers. But what they did was, they put eight individual machines on a huge merry-go-round with one operator station. That's kinda like putting...

    It would be better than a tinkertoy if he wanted to do a Linux CNC project. And had about ten years to make it run :)

    You're right, I got it twisted a bit when I found out much of what they were selling is made in Asia. They do not advertise that fact. The whole enteprise now seems very Harvard MBA, peddle the "Made...

    For two people that agree, we sure managed to turn this into an argument :)

    I do agree with you that hardware is much better. I just don't think that commercial software has improved for the last...

    I thought they were great, thank you.

    Did you notice how the advertising has changed ? Surface speeds, materials, depth of cut, feedrate ? In an ad for a machine tool ? Whoa, what will they think...

    We know what actually happened now, but I'd like to correct you on dates a little.

    San Francisco was fine until the late seventies - some time between 1978 and 1980, I'd say. I worked there in...

    Space cutter and a dividing head is good enough for these, actually.

    Been that way for quite a while. I think they have new owners (new meaning, not the people who started and built the company.) It's some kind of corporate subdivision now. Well hidden but if you dig...

    Yeah and I got slammed for it, too ! It's called "paying your dues" and I think it's a custom that goes way way back. Maybe it's some kind of touchy-feely defense mechanism, that keeps out the people...
