    Scurffy887 - great examples - if you don't object I'll copy those photos into a document I'm making about what can, and cannot, be done on a box-and-pan/finger brake, as opposed to a press brake.

    Check into the tooling question a little bit - yes 30 taper is smaller, but 40 taper is ultra common and very high volume. For example Franks's site (maritool) lists BT30 ER16x50mm at $104.30 while...
  3. graphical reference showing parts a press brake can make a finger brake cannot

    I'm trying to educate some folks on how to make designs that can be fabricated using foot shears, finger brakes, and similar. As part of this I'm looking for a chart, table, or the like that shows...

    What are you cutting Jbcourt? Which CAM system?

  5. OK, the forklift functions (for at least a few...

    OK, the forklift functions (for at least a few minutes) and the battery charger now turns itself off rather than running for hours and making everything hot - so it seems back to a usable state.

    Update - it charged for some 8 hours yesterday, eventually got hot so I did a STOP on the charger and unplugged it. (And opened the door, strong battery acid smell) It wasn't super scary hot, but...

    "send everyone to college for computer gaming design" "or nursing"...

    Really evil reality check on such schemes. Nursing is a demanding (and very important!) task. And professional computer...

    OK, I got the voltage up to 29v or so, and now the factory charger does something instead of pouting ERR and sitting on its hands. I've been unable to find any documentation on what the symbols on...

    So far it's cool to the touch. Spent a few minutes fiddling with the emissitivity on the IR thermometer, and then realized all that matters is change (does it heat up) - draw is down to <2 amps,...
  11. OK, I finally put a voltmeter on it and got...

    OK, I finally put a voltmeter on it and got 17volts. Not good for a 36volt battery, but not 0. I now have a power supply that is in theory outputting 30volts and just under 4 amps. (Because no...
  12. how to recover from battery maintence blunder

    <snip long list of excuses, some quite valid, involving heat, pandemic, general distractions>

    My little red forklift wouldn't charge. Examination of batteries reveals 0 water. Clearly bad. ...

    Sadly, the older I get, the more deeply I understand some things about history and the world. And they're generally unpleasent. Can I go back to being young and blissfully ignorant? Or at least...

    I think I at least skimmed all the posts. Some were a few days ago, so perhaps before some things were not known, and I may have missed some posts. I invite you all to consider:

    Sigh, I only clicked on this thread because I was wondering if there is any real different in the materials? As for the companies, ages ago, one would sell to me direct and the other wouldn't (I...

    This cuts three ways (at least) - shops/people inside or close to development, where even next day shipping may be too slow, will succeed if they can revise and produce parts very rapidly. Quoting...

    I've never called for a quote, so have no idea where they fall in price range, but Parker Majestic does list a 6x18 (though it's maybe full CNC)
    Their website suggests they may also have 6x18 manual.

    @implex - the "pick one up used off ebay or from a dentist" sounds fine, but the local dentists are barely open and I don't really know any of them, and I'm a buy one off the web kind of guy. May...

    So if I grok this machine, it compares rather than measures - you must always have some exemplar part to start with. That would let it do inspect-every-part production things, but it does not seem...

    Fixed costs - at the root of a lot of things.

    Anybody know where to order such things online low hassle in the US? (Hopefully less weird in refusing to sell here.) Good brands to look for?...

    I'm going to make just one (kind of recurrent) observation on the business aspect:

    Just because it's paid for, doesn't mean it's not capex. It's less vulnerable (cannot be repo'd), and changes...

    Make no mistake, I keep bringing up DFM, and they get it. But right now, for obvious reasons, there is a crises. So a 2nd rev of the device could account for all of these things - but right now...

    @ss_user -

    actually, this block is for LAMP rather than PCR, but same function via different chemistry.

    and it is held in a sold container rather than water.

    but in general you have the gist...

    So part of this question is about what sorts of parts your shop is good at setting up to run efficiently in quantity. Not just good at running well, but good at efficiently setting up to run...

    @gkoenig - point taken, but that assumes one can get an extrusion for that small amount of material. (I've never tried it, is that hard? easy?)
