    How straight does it need to stay? 4140 likes to move during heat treat.

    Length to diameter ratio is a big reason since the fundamental difference is that it has a sliding headstock and tooling that is fixed in Z, so you are always supporting the material within a few...

    I made a 47" long part in that same machine! I had to remove the work collection cabinet I made and make a really long rear ejection tube. The part had a clevis on one end and the back side had an...

    Carmex are local for me. Fantastic product line, but not cheap. We would call them to get part numbers and then order through DXPe or MSC.

    That said I've got one of the Harvey multi-thread...

    Shout out to AD for great service

    Jergens also makes a "low rent" Lang-compatible system with 52mm or 96mm zero point patterns. Not a *ton* cheaper, but cheaper. And they aren't Lang.

    Plus, as much of a CAMplete fanboi as I am, I don't think you can make your own machine definitions in it. Give Jeff up there a call and ask but I think it is licensed on a per-machine basis. It is...

    Lang is the gold standard but they are pricey. We put a zero point plate on the 4th and then another on a pallet on the table, so we could take one part from the table to the 4th and even over to...

    316L is low(er) carbon. I think it helps weld embrittlement problems in the HAZ. I know it is used as a filler wire.

    Cast stainless cuts fine. I had a project for medical cart wheel spacers...

    I much prefer predrilling to helical entry for just about any through holes.

    316 is fine, just take a real chip and watch your SFM.
