    Omniturns are <$40k I think.

    This setup looks like it's designed for your task. Omniturns aren't that expensive, and it will be much faster to put a bunch of blanks in the trough rather than load up and clamp a fixture.

    I haven't used their tombstones, but the AME rod locks I've used were top-notch. Their support is also very good.

    What's weird is that the Spiralock thread form dates back to the 70's. I've always been surprised that it hasn't been cloned/standardized.

    It shouldn't affect the free-running torque. Do do a proper test you'd need to torque up a joint and then vibrate it (e.g. Junkers test)

    You might call Northeast Coatings. I haven't done PVD from them, but they do a lot of it. On the non-PVD side of the business, I have always gotten a straight answer from them on the pros and cons of...

    In Maine, Millinocket Fab (in, where else, Millinocket) has blanchard grinding, but that's not quite coastal.

    In NH, Quality Flame/American Steel has blanchard, but I'm guessing they wouldn't do...

    The obamacare policies are also priced based on age (although it's not exact actuarially). The obamacare subsidies are based on income. So the net amount you pay may be (if you make under the cap)...

    I looked at it, and have family members who did as well. You can buy individual insurance through a broker or through the marketplace. Your purchase route does not, as far as I know, change any of...

    'Being anal' is good on safety critical things. The problem I have unfortunately seen a few times is people who are more anal on the test than they are on the real work. I've seen this happen a few...

    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.

    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:

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