    For ridged tapping the feed in IPM is pitch X RPM. For a compression holder I usually increase the feed by 5-10% to allow the holder to compress.

    Tap depths are nicely repeatable with ridged...

    I just had the septic tank pumped on our rental property earlier this week. I was talking to the tech and he said our system was in good operating order (original to the house built in the '50s) but...

    I think I might try greasing up a 6-32 bolt and force it back and forth with a cordless drill to try to stretch or burnish the thread til the gage goes.

    See that little disc? That's the wrench to remove the stylus. It goes across the little flats and unscrews.

    On my Mitutoyos, there is a slot on the back of the dial. You can unbend a paperclip and push it down in there. It disengages the gear and you slide the calipers open or closed a bit while pushing...

    In a nutshell? DON'T!

    I just looked in my book, no help there either.
    Just a guess, but VZOFZ may preset your work Z zero.

    I use VZSHZ and I know for sure that adjusts your work Z zero from wherever you have it set. ...

    Don't know if this will help, but if you search Amazon for "clip on sun glasses", you can filter by brand.
    It list all the brands they carry, so it might be a starting point for a more in-depth...

    Type V1=0 in MDI, cycle start. Leave it out of the program altogether.
    Or if your control can run a schedule program (.sdf I think) you can do it easier there.

    Did you get the above code working? That will make switching to macro programming so much easier.

    Gonna want to make sure G54, G55, etc. Z surface is within .100 (initial level) of each other or you’ll snap tools going between work offsets. Or make initial level bigger. ie G43 H1 Z1.

    I would put the G10 as the first line of the program. Use the actual Z of G54. Worst case if you reset and restart, it will cut air til it reaches the stock.

    The G10 in the sub looks good but I...

    I used to do a lot of medical work and I was dying to justify a 5 axis mill. In the ten years that I was heavily into it, I saw maybe 3 RFQ's that were truly 5 axis.

    I made an adjustable stop for my drawtube but it's a PITA for short run stuff.
    I usually caliper off a jaw to do the first side then mill oal. Then you can stop off the front to do the second side.

    AFAIK you can't pass over features defined in the NLAP profile.

    If you must use the DNMG tool to rough, you'll have to leave the undercut out of the NLAP profile and program a separate finish...

    I quit chiming in on tool offset threads because everyone has their favorite way of doing it and you’re not going to change anyone’s mind.
