    I am with Milland on the low end, not so sure about going so high on the high end. I see this as a custom tool and the 4th axis job. I am also figuring in on easy payment, like not dicking around...

    Wait until you are trying to get over the 4th axis and under the collet nut to clear the chips in a deeper slot, then that extra stick out is most desirable. As long as you can clear the chips then...

    If you're going to have power to it in a few days I wouldn't worry about powering it up now, wait until it is in its final spot.

    I know this is a pain in the ass but you may try removing Fusion completely from your computer and reloading it fresh, this can certainly help clean things up. I don't have nearly the issues you are...

    The machine is a Kitamura with a dead spindle, one of the last jobs I did before rebuilding it. It was shot with my cell phone, which I have learned smooths out volume levels to make it consistent. ...

    I think it makes a difference but so does the extra coolant and chip evacuation. I am not as worried about how far the tool sticks out as I used to be. I think tool holder projection is a bit more...

    How much stock do you show on your second op model? .2mm???

    I too use Fusion and never use a stock offset, I do that with my fixture offset and stop, which is a pin in a tool holder for lower...

    The video shows how I make a similar knob. I start with bars for the 1st op, machine the wings and threaded hole, then screw them into matching pockets for the 2nd op with minimum waste and no need...

    It really depends on your neck of the woods. My business is totally legit and I am incorporated, sole proprietors are only if you don't make money because of the labor taxes. I did build my shop on...

    Funny how much difference the machine makes. On a new Fadal I would chase close to .003" in Y and a little more in Z during the day, a 30"x16". My old Kitamura, a 20"x14", is dangerous. It holds...

    Removing a garage door and installing it is not a big deal, your not touching the tracks. Cutting out a section and patching it back in after your machine is in the garage is 15 minutes plus any...

    Removing the door and cutting a hole above it is by far the least amount of work, it wouldn't be that hard once you get to it. You don't need to bother with permits or anything, just do it quick and...

    Move the header up a foot or so and fill in below it with a dummy wall section you can remove, the dummy wall doesn't have to be the full span. Yes the header is load bearing but from looking at...

    Starrett 93-A, used it last night to tap a 4-40 hole and that tap is still in it now. No idea if they are as good as they were 30 years ago though. Definitely a lovely tool.

    Is that .0003" of burr or do you need to remove that much from a surface? I too like the idea of a cheap little granite surface plate to deburr but not to remove that much off a surface. If it is...

    For parts like in your picture a flat plate with sheet gasket works great, but you will need more CFM than the tiny venturi pumps, and at least a 1 gallon coolant trap.

    What you need depends on what you are doing with it. If you are going to do a good job making fixtures with good o-ring cord stock, foamed is best, then you will need minimal CFM. What are you...

    Holy shit that's a rip off! I have the same thing without the low vac safety button, I use a vac gage which does the same thing but is more informative.

    It looks like Pierson uses Vaccon pumps.

    Hmm, considering grinding a 2"x6" stone flat on one side would take me about 15 seconds of machine time, if there is a market that could be something worth looking into. It would be way easier than...

    Out of curiosity is it the fact they are flater or the abrasives all have flats ground on them so they don't cut that makes them so desirable? Or is it both? You can lap them flat with loose...
