    We did this on a project. Had the 17-4 sheet waterjet to size/shape and then slapped them on the surface grinder. Being magnetic, it was quick work.

    You see industrial machinery advertising all over the place in Japan. It was odd, but cool, to see Fanuc and IKO advertisements all over the place.

    This is OT to the original question, but, if you don't mind me asking, what was the driver for mixing Siemens PLC and Fanuc robots as opposed to using a Siemens-based robot like a Kuka?

    On a more serious note, I run some TG100 and TG75 toolholders because of inertia. I don't think I would buy more of them without a very compelling reason.

    Not on topic, but this reminds me of my wife's birthday quite a while ago, before we were married. She wanted a copy of Machinery's Handbook, so I bought it for her. She was happy, but my now...

    Yeah, no sane lawyer at Haas would allow that, nor would any sane school or college buy one if it did.

    I think making a better machine would be counterproductive for them, for a number of reasons:

    1) A school can buy a minimill education version for $21k if the goal is producing machined parts and...

    I don't agree, it's a different market than the hobbyist market. This has a few things going for it:

    1) fully enclosed
    2) it will just work. You won't be trying to get a commodity desktop...

    At the high school level that I've seen/heard about, it's mostly 3D printers and old Bridgeports.

    They will sell quite a few of these. They are small, relatively inexpensive, and don't need a shop space. You can put them in a classroom.

    I think we usually used Nelson for Seattle-Portland runs. Since it sounds like you have a little bit of time, it might be worth seeing if they can fit you in on a northbound deadhead run. It won't be...
