    I bought a Kaeser in 2006 or so, to provide air for my then brand new DMU60 (installed 2007) Because it didn't sound like a banshie come to haul me away to hell, would make the volume of air...

    Usually forged steel, sometimes cast steel.

    That one looks like my Peddinghaus.

    There is at last one trade mag devoted to the forging industry, for example: December 2021 | FORGE

    Or maybe contact these folks: Forging Industry Association

    How is this relevent? Well, in a...

    The UPS thing is surely due to liablility or taxes (more later) - since they use very ordinary trucks,

    The liability thing is "this thing is used up totally really it's not ethical to let somebody...

    What is a "clutched" headstock?

    Uh, given the need for whatever that is, Kingston and Tos would be on the list of brands I'd be checking.

    True! On the other hand to operate foot shears sometimes smallish people (women in this case) have to hop up and down on the treadle (yes this is a problem) - that can't be the smoothest event for...

    Yes it's a foot powered (treadle) shear. And it's less than a year old, and only rated for 16ga (and that's likely optimistic for high volume.)

    But given that a foot shear goes that fast, the...

    In our experiments with a stomp shear, it seems if the backgauge is good 12 or even 15 cuts a minute are possible (actual cuts.) I haven't tried just cycling it to see how fast it will go, but 24...

    An endmill. If it's a small machine, pick a small endmill and make multiple passes. (Uh, mill/drill => try 1/4" endmill.)

    I wonder if this is like the story of widely used and respected machine tools having issues in places - lemons? Maybe. Or some subtle thing (vibrations in floor, bad air, power quality issues,...

    My Kaeser is now 14+ years old, and runs very few hours. But when it runs it's almost always supporting CNC machines that bleed air pretty constantly, so it maybe doesn't cycle on/off in the rapid...

    I hear you.

    One presumes that somewhere in the settings array for the machine are the values that M92 sets. The problem may be finding them, so you can save them. And finding the magic...

    I have a pair of Mitsubishis, (sp) one in each of two different machines, both sized to work with the tool changers -> they come in a variety of sizes.

    For a later BLUM laser, on a Heidenhain controlled DMU60 (in other words everything different) there is a tool that comes with the laser which is not very special (quite similar to one Mari sells to...

    Just blocking the G55 won't help you - the machine would just run the 2nd part code against the 1st part WCS - which is most likely NOT what you want.
    You want to do something like SeymourDumore...

    For what it's worth, I raced LeMans P1/P900 cars (car much heavier than F1 or IndyCar but with top speeds reaching 200mph at LeMans) and those cars used aluminum brake bells. They were considered...

    Strostkovy - just looking for a flap wheel - the problem is finding it *in Uganda*. (They're easy to find in the US, I have boxes of them, I'll bet you do too.) [Does your supplier happen to have...

    My colleague measured, and what they have is indeed M14. And they DO have the arbor nuts - so the open center option is indeed viable. Attempts to find the kind of disk (sanding flapdisk) needed...
