    Shoes have been a particular PITA for me over the last couple years. After having 3 pair all crap out on me at the same time, I vowed to never again buy a pair of cheap Chinese shoes, that couldn't...

    That would be pointless. Every cutting tool manufacturer sells mostly through distribution, who sets the price. They will do some direct business to multi-million dollar accounts, but you can bet...

    Also, I don't want the conversation to get bogged down or distracted by programming. Let's assume that the program is fine, weather generated by CAM, or G-code. (Actually, the 3 rules would help...

    I'm writing some work instructions for supervisors/operators, and just drafted a section on "Preventing a crash."

    In a 630mm size machine no doubt. I'm not terribly surprised to see a 100hp spindle - Makino & others make 30k rpm / 100hp spindles for ripping out aerospace structural parts. A moderate amount of...

    The long-term view is what is somewhat discouraging. I'm 13? years into the trade now, with a wife, 2 kids and a mortgage to help 'recalibrate' my perspective.

    I'd like to earn more, but fear that...

    How's about putting an o-ring groove in the CAT50 holder, with an O-ring to seal it up?

    Edit to add: Glad it worked out OK for you.

    I wonder how much protection a patent really offers anyway. I have a ridiculously simple idea for a hand-tool that I can't believe doesn't exist already. One big fear before I even get out of the...

    Single-block edits. On a Fanuc control, if you put the machine in single-block, you can switch to EDIT mode, and jump forward/backward in your program as desired. Switch mack to MEMORY mode, hit...

    My only concern would be getting caught in a pissing match between Hardinge & Okuma for something electrical. Besides that though, it's probably a safe bet.
