    Yabutt... didn't Billy get screwed over by his one time long ago business partner? A certain place that makes $1000 smart phones and $1200 monitor stands (yes just the stand)... maybe he learned...

    Keep in mind- personal opinion here. I have no doubt NX is more "powerful" on multi-axis stuff... and when properly setup (from what I have heard), but I think MCX is pretty much good to go out of...

    Not sure what this quote references originally, but in Changi airport (I think) there is a high end booze place where a 12K bottle of scotch would be low rent. :D

    Not singling out this ^ poster, but just the general statement/attitude.

    Degree's and cert's won't get you far in a "working shop" (job shop, smaller aero, etc) IMO, but they will certainly help...

    OP may never come back and let us know... If HSS drills, just sharpen yourself by hand, a little practice and off you go. I used to be able to do smaller drills (1/8") but the eyesight is not so good...

    Not sure what cam options you have, or if this is using a G47 engraving cycle. In my cam I can set a different retract and feed plane. So to 'fix' something like you describe you could have a retract...

    They are also tangetial (sp?) so there is a lot of carbide under the cutting edge.

    Ok honest question(s)-

    Was he there for an offense of some kind?

    Did he draw the un-lucky straw of random testing?
