    That is funny, I would get flack if a proper "assortment" was not offered; for projects requiring more extensive bribes, bad coffee from those coffee-vending machines was sometimes also required....

    Regarding Windows 10, also beware that certain old programs may not run on it, while they do work on Windows 7 (a couple of examples: cadkey=nogo, corel=nogo, and old versions of Word are unstable). ...

    I always ask a surgeon what his hobbies are; if it's wine-tasting, stamp-collecting, opera, golfing, or similar, I pass. If it's woodworking, mechanics, machining, or similar, OK. Also, there are...

    I'm running TNCServer (don't need TNCRemo) on Windows 7 (exactly the same version I run on XP, in fact just copied the file from the XP computer) on a Panasonic CF-51 "Toughbook" laptop with no...

    I'd turn and taper it between centers with the taper-attachment, then hold it in a chuck or collet on the 5/8 end for drilling/boring (or vice versa).

    You can still find decent condition reasonably priced used hardinge-taper 3 and 4 jaw chucks on feebay. Also with the hardinge-taper you can use all the 5-c step chucks and accessories available....

    If you can access the feature from the edge, you might be able to find a radius-cutter. Using either, most of the material could be removed with regular end mill(s), and then finished with the...

    Also, I'd beware of that HLVEM on that auction, just from looking at the few photos: shiny repaint with a few new badges, compound broken and repaired (both sides of t-slot), cross-slide and...

    Not sure exactly what vise configuration you're needing, Record or Jorgensen quick-release iron woodworking vises can be found for reasonable prices and in various sizes. There are also various...

    On H1B visas that all the benevolent, flush-with-cash, employee-focused, high-tech companies strongly advocate and lobby for more of... the "call center programming" model.

    Not to hijack the thread, but the smallest piece of debris or nick on the plate on faces of the dial assemblies will cause a problem. I also put a second thin "locknut" on those handle/dial nuts. I...

    Thanks Plasma, I'm familiar with brazing, preforms, pastes etc, but that's more complicated than the loctite with the quantities we need, but i appreciate the feedback on the spot-welding. Maybe we...

    I don't think it's "amateurs" that are any issue, rather it's the handfull of perpetual trolls who think they're experts on everything, and feel compelled to comment/attack people who think are...
  15. Attaching 3/32 Stainless Tube to #55 HSS Drill; Will Spot-Welding Work?

    Hello,
    We're trying to get a "simple" solution to attaching a 3/32 O.D 0.02 wall x 0.7" length 302 hard stainless ferrule (hypo tubing) onto a #55 HSS drill. This ferrule has about 0.002"...

    For various fixtures/bases that slide in miter slots, I keep a stock of hard maple slats cut to the slot size(s); easy to make on the tablesaw, and adequately durable for non-production use. Glue...

    I use one on an hlvh, very handy for repetitive stuff that is within its capacity and geometry to be cut off near the spindle nose. Not extremely useful for one-offs. With the cutoff slide, normal...

    Stopped paying maintenance on NX (5), about 9 years ago, after paying $212/month since V18 (~8 years). The FlexLM license is node-locked to the machine ID (microprocessor ID), and it runs on XP, on a...

    As described above in my previous post, US companies using Chinese vendors using stolen software can have issues when those pirated files make it into their systems.

    Aside from the ethical aspect of using pirated (stolen) software, better be careful about the legal aspects of using it. I have an acquaintance with a small company, one of the employees...

    Thanks! I retrieved those manuals from Heidenhain's site also, but it looks like they've organized and added things since I went mining in there.

    My second-hand info is from several years ago, but for one seat of basic modelling/drafting it was considerably north of that ($16 ish IIRC)--perhaps that has changed. Maybe if someone is buying a...

    I have a Series 1 Interact with TNC2500 circa 1995. You can probably use any of the programming manuals from the 151, 2500, 360 to get the info for a post. The VisualMill tech wrote one for the...
