    Such as? I am watching this thread as I too have the same needs, but mine are Type III. My experience with Chromate coatings is that they are totally useless for anything other than on-the-shelf...

    I think the only thing the OP has done wrong is to offer to do the work for a reduced rate. If he was getting his full shop rate then there would be nothing to complain about. Been there, been asked...

    I bet all you need to do is wire in a "pot" for spindle override. All the manuals for your control are available at Yasnac's website, no charge, no registration, no BS, to figure it out.

    To start...

    If only it had happened last night, it's socked in tonight.

    You do know the difference between an eclipse and the phases of the moon, right?

    Neither my J50 nor my J300/i80M allows much to be done when I pause a program, I guess that is just a Yasnac thing. Yeah, no overrides suck! My J50 doesn't have them, makes 1400 ipm rapids fun when...

    Considering it takes me just under 1.5 hours, 2.5 including the setup, to drill a .126" hole in 500 304ss 1/4" rods I would just do it manually. I only do these once every 14-18 months and have...

    Can't you do it in the program? That works for mine.

    Get your post figured out, that is the issue. Machining multiple faces with your 4th is a game changer as far as productivity goes. I have a good Fusion post with 4th axis for a Yasnac control if you...

    Considering dishwasher detergent is the closest thing to lab cleaner we can get I don't think it would make any difference to your dishes. Residential dishwashers don't do a good job of rinsing the...

    Sorry no spare, but my 17 year old one is humming along nicely as I type.

    She thought it was silly to test at -100f so she just approved tests that failed.

    It's in the video linked in the first post. Just imagine the skanky shit hidden behind those curved sheets after a few years!
  13. I always included the offset with the toolchange...

    I always included the offset with the toolchange and there was no movement so it must be a parameter thing. With only 4k of memory and nearly no canned cycles, such as G81 or G83, I had to be VERY...

    Feed hold is a little easier to recover from tha e-stop. I always proofed things out running the program slowly but the TC-2 I ran didn't do anything it wasn't supposed to. It was bug free, unlike...

    There is way more to it than taper size, my 30 taper Kitamura proved that to me. Drawbar tension makes a big difference too, Kitty has 900lbs, and purrs under a heavy cut. Try doing a demo with the...

    The closest thing I do is cut 1"x3" parts out of larger plates, enough to make 24 parts, by slotting them with a 1/4" 2 flute Onsrud router. I run a .02" chip load stepping down .3"ish then to .74",...

    That is what I would do, bringing along some wood skids and rollers just in case. Or if getting it that high off the ground makes you uncomfortable then rent a drop deck trailer.

    That travel is getting pretty extreme for a 3/4" wide Uniforce type clamp, IMO. The bigger you go the more travel you can get away with, the design isn't conducive to longer clamp travels. Keep in...

    I used to program, setup, and run a 1984 TC-2. It's been so long I don't remember the fine details but I would just back off from the work enough for tool changes so the tools cleared, I never took...

    How well do you know your local law enforcement? Drop by and get to know them, and not just once. Do they take "donations"? Some places I lived this was viewed very favorably, same for the fire...

    Err, how about the "three plate method"??????? The ops needs define it perfectly. He has 3 plates that need minor lapping to make them all flat.

    I agree with the electronic air filters. I was mistaken in my earlier post, I don't have a Mistaway, I have a Tri-Mist which has Honeywell cells just like the air filter in my house. The cells are...
