    Only northwest Ohio is that flat. Ohio got rid of their personal property tax, but they swapped it for a commercial activity tax, which is .25% of your gross. Whether that's better or worse depends...

    Oh, I don't know, I have a $10,000 jointer/planer and it's clearly a hobby machine. Wood could be more genteel than metal (or, let's be real about the machine in question, delrin) but I don't think...

    FEA's pretty easy. Selecting material parameters is pretty easy. Getting your constraints and load set to encompass everything reality will throw at your design? That's the real trick. Without that...

    I mostly 3d print in EZ Cheez. The extruder diameter is pretty coarse, at about 2mm, but my customers are very happy. I find that Townhouse are better than Ritz as a baseplate due to the extra width.

    If you're going the Ebay route, why not just buy a used pneumatic press and call it a day? I would never in a million years resell a shop made press (liability) so if you build something the resale...

    Are there good machine builders in China? I'm sure there are, there are good everything builders in China. Are there crap machine builders in China? Oh my sweet lord yes. Can you tell the difference...

    My perception is:

    Germans (and even more so the swiss) take something they've already been making for 100 years and make it 5% better every year by adding one more moving part.

    Japanese take...

    Can you say what the machine is? Scales added by the importer adds a whole host of other things that might be mis-configured.

    Also, "just remove backlach compensation" seems like questionable advice. It's gotta be there for a reason. Are you measuring near the edge of travel (easy to read an indicator, but typically less...

    Fairly new isn't new... have you verified it's not a mechanical/mounting issue before changing control parameters? A scale with loose mounting screws isn't any more accurate than the screws or dowels...

    The funny thing is, a number of us here WOULD be potential customers (man does it hurt any time I have to buy the Schunk ones) but if you have a product worth having, why do you need to sock puppet...

    This is probably a bit too obvious, but could you throw an assist spring between the fingers? Most grippers can grip on closing or opening. It's an easy way to get 50-100% more force out of the same...

    Whelp, it ... was... on sale for 54,500. Maybe the advertised sale went away at the end of March. Thing with sale prices is they always come back.

    Couldn't say, haven't needed one yet. Well, other than a backup battery, but I bought that aftermarket.

    If 2008 was any guide, it'll definitely happen, but probably not this year. The thing that really cuts the legs out from under new machine sales is when companies go under and there are useful used...

    They're really not that similar, Ox. The Okuma is box way, for one major difference.

    Okay, options you might have to add include: tool setter, bar feeder "interface", part catcher, rigid tapping...

    Now, it's Okuma, so you'll overpay by about 3x for every... little... option, and some things that...

    A used Okuma Genos L250 might get you there, they're only about $55k new and they can definitely hold a tenth concentricity over three inches if you know what you're doing. I'd be interested to know...

    Yes, this. It takes about 15 seconds to load a page on my phone. On my PC, no issue. I assume a tracking cookie is trying to do something and takes 15 seconds to time out.

    Okay, sure. Do you have a clean room? Do you have a team of doctors to run it? Do you know how long it'll take to get approval for a vent? Do you have a whole supply chain set up?
