    From my experience selling things, you should put the asking price in the ad.

    Or otherwise don't bother placing the ad.

    The Graziano could be used as a semi production machine. The five position stops could be set up so that a repetitive job would require less measuring. Not a turret lathe, but faster than measuring Z...

    I never thought about heat. Mine is in an unheated garage. It works ok when cold but there are times when it spins slowly in the neutral position. As this machine led a sheltered life in a warm...

    I recall being asked by a supervisor why we didn't stop our Whitney punch press to remove a sheet metal corner slug. Whitney taught us to just nibble the whole thing out if it was ten hits or less.

    I've said it before: There has to be more interaction between designers and builders. This is just the latest example.

    You beat me to it! Minimum Z is just that in a G76, but the 1/2 width of the insert has to be considerd if you set your offset to tool tip center.

    As a student I discovered that methanol and acetone worked well for tapping aluminum. One benefit it the rapid evaporation rate that helped the chips fall right off of small taps. It makes sense that...

    My Sag 14 came with a 4 KW motor about 5.4 hp. I've replaced it with a 3 hp motor and this has worked out well. If that lathe actually has a 20 hp motor, you would need to use that power...

    Not doing what you've suggested I could notice a small pause between sub iterations. I will give this a try.

    Thanks!

    I agree with your logic. Including a G92 or G50 in the part program means that you must start and end the program at the same position. Entering it with MDI instead sets the absolute zero which...

    I think we still have a box of a dozen rolls of blank mylar tape. You're welcome to it if you can't find some anywhere else. We're in Canada tho.

    Essentially yes. This older Fanuc 6 doesn't have G52 so once the tools have been set (I use G59 for setting tool length offsets) subsequent machining is done relative to fixture offsets G54 to G58.

    I set a Z zero at the surface of my setting block. What that means is the spindle face when touching the setting block would be at G90 Z0.

    Bringing the tool to the face of this block sets the tool...
