    Do you have a CNC mill? We have made parts like that on the mills before when the lathe was full and they turned out beautifully. Four vises with soft jaws so you are doing 4 first and second ops...

    We ran for a while on a 15HP Kaiser screw and it never shut off under normal use. It would open the relief valve and draw enough amps for about 7.5 hp but really did not help our electric bill. ...

    Had a Hydrovane years back and while it worked it could not make high enough pressure air for the shop. Something about being limited to about 90psi so machines tripped a lot with low pressure...

    That looks like a very nice lathe. If you were down here in Texas a homeshop gunsmith would jump on it at 4K or more.

    Seems like a decent but not great deal to me. I paid a little more than that for my 84 model but it did come with a lot of extras and tooling. I would try to get him to throw in any extras that he...

    I thought that was normal operations for Mazak. I could never even get a quote out of them so I went with Okuma and have been very happy.

    One of my customers who buys about 3 truckloads of custom extrusions a week told me that new profiles are almost a year out now if nothing goes wrong. I used to be able to get them done by Tower by...

    They never could get the one for our Okuma L200M to work right. Got tired of jacking with it and just use the conversational in it. The one for my 560s is pretty good after a lot of wrestling with...

    There is a thread from about two years ago that went totally off the rails that has some broken stud pictures. I think what happened is his heat treater screwed up and Frank just went into full...

    We have run about 25000 of that same part without problems until then (and about another 6000 since) across 4 different machines. We put a couple of the maritool studs in a vise and they broke like...

    We quit using it about 4 years ago. Once you finally got a post to work (seemed to take forever by the time you found all of the bugs and went back and forth with your reseller) the interface still...

    Yeah right MF - Maritool pull stud broke and trashed the spindle. I noticed he quit selling the standard ones now. They make good tools but lousy studs.

    I have bought over 40,000 pounds of 6061 this year and the last batch came in at $3.35 a pound delivered. Sounds like I need to try EMJ when everything settles down. Is the $2.95 FOB or at your...

    I have a GX480 with the APC and it is more rigid than a Haas but not what I would call a good machine for heavy work. Think of it more as a heavy duty drill tap that is slower but a lot more rigid...

    Try a 3 degree ramp, 10k rpm (just for the ramp), and 25ipm. I have had 1/2" endmills blow up from a not steep enough ramp angle.
