    Something like this is what I was referring to. Just let the scale/ruler flap across the stock when rotated and save a lot of time.

    For quick indication square or rectangles I lay a 12" scale across the part diagonally with the end of the scale resting against the way or saddle then put the indicator tip on the scale so you don't...

    Both are good machines all around, It's just the small things that steer me more towards the Haas over the Doosan. I'm not sure where you got the $86K for the Haas but that's way off unless you took...

    How many cutting hours are on it? My guess is it may be time for a thrust bearing swap.

    Congrats on the new machine and you are right to have concerns about the touchscreen. Its a bit fragile so take good cautions when cleaning it. That 22" monitor works wonders for my blind ass so I...

    Post of the week right there!!!!

    I'm starting to think the OP knows more about aerospace machining than this kid.

    Most of the stuff we did was Nuke and Fossil turbines so that was limited to steam. I only got to tinker with big gas turbines when someone nicked a bearing surface during install. Either way steam...

    Yep, Thing of beauty till some guy scores it during install then has to be welded up with Stellite then field machined. That's an uneasy feeling up on the scaffolding with a 200 ton rotor spinning...

    Actually no I didn't. Yes, I see your comments with "My guys" or "My employees" often, but a shift leader could claim that.

    So it's a blacksmith shop because the customer brings in a part and a bearing and you need to know how to look in a book to figure out the shaft size? Or maybe it has a drawing with dimensions like...

    Tread lightly with that. The way I'm reading into this is you don't have a CAD/CAM seat, you are using someone elses version? Most EULA's don't allow for that. I was using my own seat of Featurecam...

    Nailed it, Nothing at all special about the so called "Aerospace" Machinist. From my point of view they are not responsible for post machining ops as Rob said. Sure maybe the part gets a coating but...

    The EC-400 only has 20" in Z so if your bit is 15" and the part is 17" don't think that's going to be much help. You could step up to a 1600ZT and get 40" but that's $200k base.
