    When we got our Hermle with the Heidenhain 640 control, we did some test cuts and the Okuma's OSP control was a complete puke running my programs compared to the Heidenhain.

    Not that it matters anymore, but I hope that 50SFPM is a typo. I cut hard mold steels S-7, H-13, all in the mid to upper 50's R.C. and do it all day in the 450-550 SFPM range for rouging, and much...

    I use comp at the machine for sizing pockets, lately been using 3d comp on my mold surfaces when needed. It gets a little messy for 5x work, you need to output vectors to make things work properly.

    One thing we did was get rid of the time clock years ago. We log in on a computer when we get to work and get paid by the minute. Some guys start at around 3 A.M. some at 5:00 ish, some at 7:41 ish,...

    I didn't read thru all these posts, but I think the original poster has it completely backwards. MM is better for fine measuring, but hey that's just me. Also considering every planet in the solar...

    I guess accuracy is dependent on how and where you hunt. I overlook allot of flowages and old logged out areas, this I why I can really reach out for a long shot. I have a great shooting area and...

    I read thru pretty much all of these responses and I still don't understand the monkey eating bananas reference.

    This site is getting quite useless for getting any sort of useful information, which is why I normally come here for entertainment only. For example we went from a 5axis build, to a monkey eating...

    Toolsteel nailed the answer, I would add Dijet to the list however. No matter how much experience you have, D2 is tough to cut.
