    The local place doesn't do in place grinding, but there is a guy in Bend that will travel for only a couple hundred.

    He will be here Wednesday to re-grind.

    Those are all I use. These might be some of the original Maritool studs that were not High Strength, but he doesn't sell those any longer.

    I'll take another look at it tomorrow before I go out of town. I think there is a guy within 30 miles that does the regrind. Maybe I can get an appt next...

    Damaged BT30 spindle. grrr

    Had an issue, crashed and broke the pull stud in my speedio 16k RPM machine.

    I got it out and have been trying to clean up any damage inside the spindle taper.

    It blue's up pretty good, but...

    There should be a solenoid that turns on and off with the spindle. It controls the air flow to the nose seal to keep contaminants out.
  7. Are there rules about how far out you can hold material blanks?

    I have some parts, made from 3/4 x 2-1/2" 1018 cold drawn steel. Saw cut about 6-1/4" long has some work on both faces and one end.

    OK, it sounds like you are turning parts, not milling based on G71.

    It also sounds like your material blank is just too long, forcing the first cut to be .100 more than it should.

    As to why...

    I would hope so, however they still establish a value of it so they can "give" you X dollar value.

    One thing that always makes me cringe about a Haas machine is that they offer a second year of warranty, and it costs $5-6k.
    Are they really thinking that paying $5000 now is a savings for year...

    My old Fadal 15XT had a manifold of about 10 zerks. You just greased there where it was accessible and ran hoses to the individual locations.
    You might consider that, it would save you having to...

    My shop dynamic is that I may have the speedio set up and turned off for 3 days, but then run it for 4 hours to get parts out and shut it down again.
    It is a 2016 machine and I still am under 2000...

    I got rid of a Fadal when I bought my Speedio 700. Best decision ever.

    That being said, I paid $46k for that Fadal new back in 1993, so I reckon I got my payback on it.

    I have ONE part that needs a 8mm internal keyway cut in it. My Hardinge Conquest has a disc brake to immobilize the spindle. I bet I could do that.
    How do you program this?

    It does depend on your market. Personally virtually all the parts I make fit in the palm of my hand.

    I don't run huge runs, I set up and run out 50-100 on my speedio.

    It is incredibly simple...
