    You know, these plates are aluminum. Why mess with all this stuff ? Put a carbide-tipped blade on a Skilsaw, set the blade to an eighth above the table, then cut a big square around the stuck bolts....

    Sure, TR, but you have to admit - there is a huge problem. See above, $3500 for a simple fracture. A couple hours waiting, an x-ray and a cast, $3500.

    That's ridiculous.

    It appears that the problem with that is the owners of this giant gantry mill have decided the spindle is too fragile to help by removing the bolt heads. But your idea did spark a new approach in my...

    By the same token, why is it that people (countryside/rightist types) are not protesting that there's a trillion dollars wasted in the health care system we have, and why are we not figuring out this...

    Do you notice that no one ever attacks this ? They get all worked up over whether it is socialist or independent or responsible or flaky or whether there are lines or not, but as far as I know I have...

    They are fucking you with version control, has nothing to do with 32 or 64 bit, files do not have bitness, you can store the same files on an 8 bit dos floppy as you do on the newest apple 64-bit...

    In the Windows world I'd go you one better - 2000 was the peak, XP was okay, after that it's all been downhill :)

    Outside Windows, OS/2 was the best (don't tell me about the SIQ thing again,...

    You're not supposed to look at it, you run your fingernail across the surfaces and compare. For exacting work, you use your teeth.

    You won't get cheated, it just may take a while. Considering there's 75,000 people who have caught this thing and 2,000 dead, people are doing the best they can. Local deliveries are moving again (at...

    Not for this bumpkin. 0 for me is the OTHER end. I hate working in negative numbers. Plus if you make your zero a spot on the fixture or a stop in the jaws, you can actually find it.

    The 2200 watt Honda is 45 lbs, the 1000 watt one is 30. The thousand watter is pretty handy and very quiet.

    It's a lot nicer to charge the batteries than the ol' 6-71. 2 8D's don't take that long...

    How fast will the spindle turn ? How about using an abrasive, like a 1" cbn grinding wheel ? Then you could even program the head to do the job, controlled feed and tight position holding and all...

    This one you can fix pretty easily. If it won't let you turn off "updates" (that's the first thing I do with any software) then you can find out what the domain name for the update site is and put it...

    If you wanted to play around, you could make a little box, set two parallels across, lay the blade down on those then fill the box with wax up to almost the surface you want to grind.

    If you want to save a good $50,000 or more, price is right, factory retro, about as light as you're going to get with a horizontal ... these were real versatile, lots of travel in a smallish space....

    It's worse than that. By changing from an objective comparison to a subjective comparison, it makes the entire "indicator" into a pot of shit. It's trash.

    Kind of funny :) But I'd agree, if you pull horizontal then the "let it self-align" method is going to be a failure. The fit on the broach seems to be the only thing we do the same ... I do like the...
