    I've said it before: There has to be more interaction between designers and builders. This is just the latest example.

    You beat me to it! Minimum Z is just that in a G76, but the 1/2 width of the insert has to be considerd if you set your offset to tool tip center.

    Like I do.....

    As a student I discovered that methanol and acetone worked well for tapping aluminum. One benefit it the rapid evaporation rate that helped the chips fall right off of small taps. It makes sense that...

    U and W for incremental commands. X and Z for absolute. G90 G91 are not used for absolute and incremental. Hope this helps.

    My Sag 14 came with a 4 KW motor about 5.4 hp. I've replaced it with a 3 hp motor and this has worked out well. If that lathe actually has a 20 hp motor, you would need to use that power...

    Not doing what you've suggested I could notice a small pause between sub iterations. I will give this a try.

    Thanks!

    I agree with your logic. Including a G92 or G50 in the part program means that you must start and end the program at the same position. Entering it with MDI instead sets the absolute zero which...

    I think we still have a box of a dozen rolls of blank mylar tape. You're welcome to it if you can't find some anywhere else. We're in Canada tho.

    Essentially yes. This older Fanuc 6 doesn't have G52 so once the tools have been set (I use G59 for setting tool length offsets) subsequent machining is done relative to fixture offsets G54 to G58.

    I set a Z zero at the surface of my setting block. What that means is the spindle face when touching the setting block would be at G90 Z0.

    Bringing the tool to the face of this block sets the tool...

    Does the control have a single block switch? You might be able to go from hole to hole using that function.

    If you end up going with 7075, I would be curious to see if you have any problem with corrosion. I had some of this stuff on a garage floor and it ended up getting wet with road salt. Over time,...

    Stickies

    I participate in the Cox model engine forums from time to time.

    The entire first page is full of stickies. Just clutters up the whole first page.

    Fewer stickies are better IMO.

    A very real consideration when looking at an old machine is the fact that its brothers and sisters are probably mostly dead or retired.

    So finding one with the same configuration becomes a much...
