    At my shop it likely would have ended with the meat wagon coming for him as I keep my doors locked so anyone that is in my shop without my knowing is breaking and entering and likely means me serious...

    I don't have an official answer but I use feedmills on non ferrous when I need to reach really far or am too lazy to swap out tools since I don't do a lot of non ferrous. My best guess is you can...

    While I've seen some far more educated responses on here than I do in the general public, IMO this crap doesn't belong here. Machining, manufacturing, showing off your new tools, yes! It's about as...

    They used to be LB metals and were much better back then. They can be kinda high on some of their stuff and their alloy selection kinda sucks. Most of the employees do not speak English and beat the...

    I actually own a shaper. It's setup for large internal keyways and that is how it will stay :D

    I paid $300 for the shaper and the general rule of thumb is if a broach cost more than the shaper and...

    I've tried a chamfer mill in the past and you need to go very slow to not break the sharp tip. The serrations on a Kitagawa have a very sharp crest and require a sharp root on the jaws. I would be...

    That's a very bold statement, If I don't have more junk than you I likely know someone who does :D I just pulled a DRO and scales out of the dumpster the other day and fixed the bad power supply. Now...

    It's official, I'm retarded. Didn't search "milling" cause in my mind what other kind of cutter could there be?

    60 degree cutter, whats it called?

    Likely a stupid question but I need a 60 degree 3" cutter like you would run on a horizontal arbor. I want it to mount on a heavy slitting saw arbor to run in a VMC to cut the 60 degree 1.5mm pitch...

    Why not make your own? Milling a small slot is by far the "most difficult" part of making them. I would use 4140 or maybe even prehard. I spend as much time making tooling as I do working on actual...

    You are absolutely correct and if I was Frank I would list both, but he didn't ask what we would do if we were him, he asked what we/I/users search for. That's what I want, obviously too much info is...

    432, I despise metric, not because there is anything wrong with it but because I believe using 2 units of measure is asking for trouble and standard is what I'm used to and will stick with.

    If the controller has dc voltage I would suspect the power supply. Needs to be tested with a scope. Could be lots of things but that is where I would start

    The private message system on this forum is half a step better than useless. It does not keep track of any of the messages I have sent but rather only received, so I have no idea who I have responded...

    That's a good question. I'm and I.D.10T and didn't think of that. But it does make me curious so I'll likely take a look in one of my Fanuc manuals later today.

    There are lots off different ways to do this and I don't claim to know the correct way but your code is really long. I would use a G92 threading cycle to shorten it up and make it a little more...

    Surely I'm not the only one who runs inserted drills and sharpens their large twist drills by hand on a pedestal grinder. I can buy a lot of drills for 27K :willy_nilly:

    Doh, I need to get some sleep. I'm still skeptical if the company is out of business and I can't talk to an unbiased owner of one. $4+K is a lot of money to throw away......
