    Hmm good to know about the Hurcos being hand scraped, I had no idea. I do know that we can in fact hold tenths on both of our Hurco machines without much effort, which is great because you don't...

    NLX or NZX sounds like it fits the bill pretty perfectly tbh.

    Will these machines only ever see this line of parts or do you foresee new styles of parts in your future, especially with the...

    Coolant Mist Collectors

    Hello fellow geniuses,

    I have had something in the back of my mind since I bought our machines a few years ago and that is COOLANT MIST! I regret not buying mist collectors when we got the...

    That free-floating cantilevered Y-axis assembly doesn't have a counterweight on it?? I feel as though that would be necessary!

    As far as using shims to align a $150K+ machine, well something seems...

    You're definitely right, but looking at both mid-high end mountain bikes and road bikes, the "simpler" machine argument may not hold. I guess compared to a vehicle engine, yes they are. Compared to...

    I've definitely sheared off my fair share of insert screws, especially the tiny ass ones on our Ingersoll hi-feed mills. I think they were like T5 or T6, something ridiculous. Didn't take much effort...

    Spindle crash costed you $8k on a 1994 Haas? Is that a typo? I crashed a brand new milling machine and got a brand-new CAT40 BigPlus replacement spindle cartridge for $5000 back in 2017. The spindle...

    On a separate note, do you guys feel as though a 3+ flute finishing tool in aluminum is gonna leave a better finish versus a 2 Flute design with large chip gullets? 45deg helix and 3 flute has been...

    This isn't for roughing, this is for finishing only, but I will check those guys out....damn $200 for a 3" long 1/2 diameter finisher. These small time guys sure know how to price gouge.

    Yes I ride a 2019 giant MTB and it is one of the least innovative bikes out there, and that thing is damn complex. Multipoint linkage is an engineering marvel.

    Anecdotally, I learned about pre-stretching new insert screws, because a new screw in a pocket will absolutely stretch. If you pre-stretch the screw before actually tightening your insert down, it...

    Is there such a thing as a non-critical screw or bolt on a high-end bicycle? Not really, everything is there for a very specific reason. I ride mountain bikes pretty heavily. Last season I had one of...

    If you're using a japanese whetstone it does need to be flat, because it will tend to dish in the center over time. That sharpening method needs a flat surface.

    Wait wait wait OP, what exactly are you stoning?

    Sounds like you went and stoned an aluminum subplate....which is bad. Or maybe it wasnt aluminum but it was dirty as others have suggested.
