    Personally, I don't think it's necessary to level a BP if all four corners are making contact. Unless you need it level for reference to make a set up. My shop floor is not level either and my BP...

    Reading this makes me furious. I'm at a lost for words to express my disappointment. How could Kennedy let this happen? We all need to send a link to this posting to Kennedy to make them aware of...

    I have a CNC that's an off white color. I like it that way because it shows the areas that need cleaning. When it arrived new I sealed it with an oil resistant wax/sealant so the oil just wipes off...

    Yep, used them for over 20 years. Never seen a BP spindle go bad because of just the fly cutter. As for finish, that all depends on how their used, ie speed, feed, depth of cut, etc. We had many...

    Weellieking71, nothing wrong with what you said. I think it's always best to have a print and better if you have a model too. I quote 90% of the molds I make from Solid models, rarely see prints. ...

    It's not mine personally so I can't sell it and I'd like to keep it around just in case. The individual that owns it has retired because of illness but said I can use it whenever I want to.
