  1. [QUOTE=Kurt Learning;3402181] First of all, if...

    First of all, if you 'knew' this community, you would know I am not a "troll" but since you have asked twice now, apparently it upsets you. Second, you are the definition of a classic "conspiracy...

    I wonder if you had a bad holder with a faulty insert pocket, or a drastically different grade...? I dunno. I've never tried to (personally) push a cnmg to those specs, but I have heard people doing...

    We had a Hexagon machine a few years back. It did not repeat for poo if you ask me BUT I think that was purely the operator IMO... Never used laser or point cloud so no clue on that stuff.

    Maybe, maybe not, I don't know if that is true or not, but, still about 10x cheaper than going to a local HR Block or Jackson Hewit(?).... for the average joe taking standard deductions anyways. Last...

    Ok honest question(s)-

    Was he there for an offense of some kind?

    Did he draw the un-lucky straw of random testing?

    Would you fire him other than company policy of no drug use?

    Our education system. Too many people wanting to move right into the corner office. MBA-CEO-CFO-BA's-AD's-CPA... everyone wants a title/office job... :D

    I'm glad I got my work experience on the...

    These are funny stories indeed, but hopefully you cut some slack where needed... I think I would do respectable on a Fanuc Gcode 'test', but I am sure I wouldn't ace it as I have been a "cam guy" for...
  9. lnmx vs cnmg vs..?

    I would like to add, and maybe this is opinion, or maybe a difference in cutting tool geo these days...

    I do remember our LNMX tools (boring bar and OD tool) were from a different supplier than...

    I don't know, quick googlefu just shows iscar, but i thought we had them in tungalloy... (hmm..?) ... I remember having a different rep at a different job having that style of insert, but not screw...

    I realize we are going to have these comments, but IMO, the OP asked a serious question.

    I think we can assume you should be sober < flame away. :leaving:

    Well to be fair... we have guys setting up and running machines that can't read Gcode (not like read as in follow along mentally for shapes), like not read / not understand the difference between a...

    Interesting train of thought. You vmc is a robot of sorts. It automatically changes tools thru a pre-determined cycle with a simple - M6T1/T1M6 command, same thing with a lathe (and even more so when...

    I would look for an apprenticeship program is it more 'real world' is going to teach you things, assuming it is similar to what I took with 4 years of night classes and 8k hours on the job...

    You don't know the half of it! :sleepy:

    Last job I was "strictly" a programmer, there was NO interaction with the machines. Once in a while I went into the shop to double check a tool or material...

    I would add some stubs onto your air plumbing for future uses. Also, a couple water traps with valves, even if you have an air dryer.

    Don't you run an Okuma? You should try one of the LNMX -.047R inserts, if you are removing lots of mat'l. We could get your almost exact rough specs in a Haas*, except feed .02-.022", .03" for...

    I don't have any direct experience, but it has been around for a long time so I am thinking it prolly works just fine for those that use it.

    OK, but I don't think using the pc as a metric is entirely fair. I am not arguing that is hasn't taken jobs, but it has also improved quality/ease (I know I'll get jumped for that :hole:) of life for...

    I agree with this, but I have seen way too many applications (after they have seen my resume) wanting hobbies and things (even got one asking for a few of my favorite magazines). :crazy:

    This is the perfect reason to not have them on a resume, but in a portfolio you bring along with you if you get an interview. I don't think I would personally do pics, but a little common sense goes...
