    You've messed with his program. He doesn't have the one good-looking forklift to put in his ads anymore...

    Glad to hear it worked out, those guys seemed to have a lot of complaints against them.

    I didn't see the angle on the floor in the first pics.

    You can hemstitch it, but if you don't like the time or you don't have the memory to hold the program, you can use a form tool to finish the...

    Helical to depth on the centerline with an end mill slightly smaller than the finish width, then one pass around the outside and inside edges.

    Doesn't get any simpler than that part...

    That is such a meme. So Germany, with 20% of the workforce in manufacturing is not "grown up" as a nation?

    In the 80's we were told the future was all about "information". We were in the...

    I've made material recommendations too. I'm sure you are like me- when a material is agreed on, that's what the part will be made from.

    We don't tell our customers we will make one part, then...

    What's the bore diameter? With a 1/4" IC, I'm imagining not a large bore or you'd be using a bigger bar?

    If it's a 1" diameter you need over 7K to get 2000 sfm. Are you really getting that? What's...

    That's what I was thinking. If the callout is for aluminum bronze, there's a reason.

    That's really a honed or ground finish. Imo, you are asking for more than what's realistic on a lathe. You might be able to use a larger rad and bump up the feed, 3 tenths is so light it's just...

    I've done the spindle fans on 2 of my mills. Fanucs. They were obvious- you couldn't install them upside down if you wanted to.

    They are going up now, and will likely go a lot higher this year. The flooding in the midwest has forced them to delay the planting season- some farmers have just bagged it for the year entirely....

    I don't have any fadals- but on my CNC's, all the fans on the enclosures and motors exhaust warm air.

    The only fans that blow in (IIRC) are the little ones mounted to heat sinks. And my air...
