    I don't know... I doubt there is anything reliable enough that I would use it. That said, I don't do much lathe work anymore. If I did, maybe just make a chart with some guidelines...

    You'll have better results getting your process* dialed in, other than buying expensive diamond/pcd inserts IMO. Also, I think for the exotics to function well they need really high sfm (but I am no...

    Yes, or changing it to see if the behaviour changes. In your vid the Z moves back, what would happen with no offset in Z, or change it by +1 or 2"..?

    Is the offset call automatically bringing Z to the zero maybe? Have you tried removing or changing your Z offset and see if that makes a difference?

    So drilling ejector holes for the actual mold core/cavity, or the ejector plate itself? In ejector plate, just step up your drill size a thou or so if you want to "one and done" it. If for a cavity,...

    See, but Haas won't. AND there a whole lot of Haas users here. Either started their shop with one, or worked at a shop with one. Kind of like driving a sports car vs regular car. If you were used...

    Actually list for one of the drills at MSC (which are notorious for overcharging, than "discounting") is $470, so I expect you could get that for $350. You probably need to be about half of new...

    Don't know about that, but you should be able to adjust the handle so it is not putting pressure on the mechanism ie -adjust it so it is loose, then re-position handle so it is hanging straight down?...

    You missed what I said, if your only selling point is being faster, (which is what you implied) someone else will soon be faster than you and take your work. I'm talking about offering a service that...

    I think that is a pretty bold and untrue statement. It all depends on your industry/goods you sell or service. What you are describing, IMHO, is the very definition of the race to the bottom if you...

    On a Haas, It's G187 P1 = rough
    G187 P2 = medium
    G187 P3 = finish
    You can also add an E value for max corner rounding on each of those. The difference is, I think even setting a G187P1E.1 the...

    Interesting, but seems like any gains you might get are immediately taken away with a gage length that is 3x longer than needed. :crazy:

    That is ridiculous!! If you were trying to hold tenths, I could see needing to compensate somehow with accuracy codes, or a slower feedrate, but for .010" ?!?! ouch! :ack2:
