    Nope, no more info. I contacted Shizuoka in Japan directly and just received that PDF, quite helpful.

    I haven't laid eyes on that Shizuoka I had in about 10 years. Dunno who has it now, but...

    I've yet to order anything bigger than a computer case that UPS hasn't trashed.

    I don't know a lot about them, but IIRC they went out of business due to patent litigation.

    Those Aerodyne turbos were the hot ticket for motorcycles and stuff, but they stopped making them. That turbine housing is what they call VGT or Variable Geometry Turbine, today. The VGT turbos are...

    If you don't mind getting a laptop, I have good things to say about my MSI gaming laptop.

    I disagree with this characterization of CAM software. They way you describe it is exactly backwards from how it really is.

    I don't think anyone remembers passwords today, they use a password manager.

    A dab of the ole high carbon hot-glue ought to keep those things going the way you want, no matter if it's forwards or backwards.

    I'd worry about re-engineering it when that bridge comes crossing.

    I was reading 7Kw motors and 1.5m on a side with NEMA34 steppers that have 0.0004 accuracy per full step and my brain exploded. I'm a quivering mess of jello now.

    But seriously, I know how big a...

    Those high shear tools also generate a lot of upward pull when cutting. To get good results it's even more important to have a rigid setup. I have a Shear Hog and have used it on a variety of...

    IIRC, Carvesmart has a patent on dovetailed jaws. I was skeptical of such a patent, perhaps someone challenged the patent and it was invalidated? Now Orange doesn't have to pay the Carvesmart tax...
