    kustomizer - i have long held that most riggers have a rule that for each job, they must "scare the owner of their wits!!!"

    (Finally found some that don't, and have used them all the time ever...

    Grant - how wide is that hand shear? (They list all manner of specs but I cannot seem to find a width of cut.)

    Ries - I'll look into that - and yes we may need multiple, we'll see.

    Oh, and I...

    OK, surface position is in "Z" (at least for the tool) - and you have rotated the coodinate system around a point on the top. So the Z of the top face is 0, but the Z of the side face (left face in...

    @Ries - thanks, some names I hadn't seen before. By the way the Benoit name was apparently bought out by some other folks in Kent or Renton (I got an email from them.) - I've not visited them yet....

    My shop is in WA (seattle metro) that's where the power beader is. But the project is in Uganda. (If they had the conditions of my personal shop this would all be trivial...) But a hand...

    I am involved in a project to improve the productivity of a factory making cookstoves in Africa. (Different from prior projects I've mentioned here.)

    In my setup things are done with PLANE AXIAL (rotates plane around) or M128 for some funky stuff.
    My system has not generated or used CYCL 7 for some time.

    I always work from 1 work offset...

    G-code survives because it's a kind of half standard - all of the pain of "compatibility" without some of the benefits. When somebody says their machine runs g-code, what they are really saying is...

    When I retired from motorsports in 2011, I was pretty sure I'd heard (and seen) every bizarre BS story with funky little side stories with some truth in them the world could possibly hold. (The...

    Incompetence knows no geographic bounds.

    And general evilness by oppressive governments (or governments in general) is, sadly, neither new nor rare.

    Here's a different question - if IMTS is canceled, or effectively canceled, what will, could, and should vendors do instead?

    Are downhole rubber products mostly drilling consumables, as opposed to pumping or refining? (Is this a sign that new drilling has stopped?)

    gustafson you are missing the point - which is that lockdowns have a finite effect. lots of households are not protected by them, and so lots of people are not protected. (By the way the source...

    2outof3 - yes to all of that, as time goes on we see a couple of other things.

    If we really get say 30% unemployment and a 30% or 40% drop in GDP by the end of the second quarter (which I suspect...
