    Do you know other programming software? I'm just a little curious how you got the job if you don't know the software I suppose... :crazy: I've interviewed at places where I had 99% of the skill set,...
  2. Well no... not if you know what you are doing......

    Well no... not if you know what you are doing... I've ran parts where the (cnc lathe) spindle was at or near the max 4k rpm ALOT. It didn;t scare me because I knew the process and workholding... Now,...

    "We" say you are nuts! :D

    Pics worth a thousand words here. Are you grinding a profile or something into the shim stock??

    This number sticks in my head, but I won't swear by it... I *think* to have 100 "lids" (.063x1.5x2" ish) gold plated is around $500. So--- $5/each? Keep those costs in mind in your research.....

    I've never seen (in person) a holder pull out from a 40 taper either. Either the machine alarms out, or a part gets thrown. I was one time running a "quick and dirty job" of facing down some parts...

    We make our own product, and we get alot on the "wholesale" end (I think that is the correct term as we don't sell to the public that I know of)... but the machined portion is just a small percentage...

    Meh... not much different than being a programmer IMO. Last job the programmers were mostly "office bound" and we had operators, setup people, and a guy working the tool crib. We programmed, released...

    Why would it? :confused:

    Ass-u-ming a 'real' machinist and not button pusher. I have my personal feelings about QC in general, but what makes their skillset more valuable than the guy making the...

    Usefull to index to a certain tool to change an insert, or check an insert/cutting edge. You'll find out in machining (in general- manual, cnc, tool&die) there are about fortyeleven different ways to...

    My exp is pretty opposite of SIM. We used the 3/8 guy on a good 50% of our work and never broke anything, even at 6x-8x diameter in not so rigid setups. We did chip a flute here and there, and they...

    A couple things to be clear -

    1) It is perfectly fine to not know how to do something and ask for help. It is another thing to proclaim something is broken (canned cycle / machine /etc) when you...

    This one of those threads that make you go "hmmm :crazy:"

    Is there a tool to "widen" a hole? Yes, it is called an endmill.

    Now to be more serious, get an endmill maybe 3-4mm diameter and just...

    I think that is pretty standard on Fanuc/Haas controls. If I go into mdi and type in T1 atc fwd (or T1M06), it just calls up tool 1 or turret position 1. How does the control "know" what you want to...

    Exactly the point I was making - - OP doesn't understand how it works, but spouts off about Haas. I get it, people think I am a Haas fanboy, and I am to a degree. But it just pisses me the EFF off...

    I think OP said he is making mating part so not applicable here. But on some things, form tapping is "not allowed" per customer specs so be wary.

    I agree it is a stronger thread, and much easier...
