    I've not ran one with a drum but I assume the process is the same as ones with a chain you should just need to move the drum now. It is likely between positions and you should be able to jog it with...

    It isn't ideal but you should give it a try with the keyboard. Our has a small hole through the side we routed the cable through and the keyboard just stays at the machine. Not sure if we put it...

    From what I saw of the EZ control at PMTS a couple months back it's not worth it. The Smooth G control has quite a bit of functionality you will want. Also Smooth G runs on Windows where as EZ runs...

    There are M codes to turn Chuck barrier on and off. Check your book and put them in the program. I can't remember the numbers right now.

    If doing a plunge cycle it will be in rapid on the way out of the hole. Turn rapid down and hit single block on the way out..

    If you can get away with a slight step I would recommend only holding your fixturing tolerance as deep as you need it. As far as step over I would say 25 to 33 percent of the cutter step over. Feeds...

    Ghuring Diver series may be a good option here. Very good at plunging and they have off the shelf options with through the tool coolant. Remove most of the material with plunge milling, That far of a...

    I'm a second for magnetic milling chuck. If blanchard was that fast we wouldn't have used the mag chucks in the mill to prep for the blanchard. They come in handy for other jobs too. You can get ones...

    From the conversational guy I don't see contours I can't do in the part pictured above. I can't contour it with a ballnose and 15K lines of code but I sure as hell can index a horizontal mill and cut...

    I want to give the conversational side of the perspective. I work in a job shop that runs exclusively Mazak conversational and does all programming on the floor. We have a pretty busy shop with about...

    Even if you get it to do it tool life would most likely be better interpolating. At the least a lot of pecking may be in order.

    Why not try some helical interpolation using the C axis? Make a bigger hole or use a smaller tool to make the hole. You should be able to ramp at 10-15 degrees if the machine can handle it. Endmills...

    At our shop we use those keyless drill chucks for all our HSS tool holding. These work perfectly fine for that and give you 1 holder that holds a range of about .03 to .5. The Accupro ones are...

    Same story here, I believe it is intentional and does stop after so much time stationary. It gets a bit quieter when the spindle is oriented. I tend to orient mine when doing programming and not...

    What if you extend the open ends of the wrench to make contact with the walls of the part. That way it wouldn't be capable of spreading when under pressure. Looks as though taper would keep it from...

    Why do you have an S500 in there? I would think it is alarming because you are telling it to turn the spindle on but not which direction. (M3,M4) Not sure why it would have worked in any machine...

    I would recommend a Gorilla Mill brand Knuckle Dragger in 3/8" to do most of your roughing. The variable geometry of the flutes and chip breaking shape should eliminate most or all chatter. From...

    What you want is called shift. I believe it's in the end line of the program. You'll probably set it to .65 or so to accommodate a .125 parting tool and a finish pass on the face of the next part....
