    The following is opinion.. nothing more.

    I like the 5 Axis vises for rotary work, but for three axis work, I would really have to need one. They are pretty expensive for what you get. They are...

    I always try to tig on a nut before I try anything else. I just lay an appropriate size hex nut on top of the tap, and tig down in the hole with a little SS filler rod. Let it cool down and the tap...

    It shouldn't really leave a mark on the part, but I usually put a slight radius on the sharp edge out of principle. My guess is, your Haas/ CAM system overran the internal corner a little bit and...

    Isn't there some capacitor that bumps the motor on spin-up. Seems like I had one of those shit the bed a few decades ago. I found one at a HVAC supply house and soldered it on and never had another...

    Be thankful that you were truthful in the interview process, that makes it much easier to come into an unfamiliar job. Much worse when you fed them a line to get in the door.

    There are only two...

    Almost sounds like what happens to me when the CAM software randomly throws in a G92... as far as I can tell, that resets the entire machine coordinates, crashes the machine and forces me to do a...

    I never had much issue with them. They seemed to run decent in production; albeit, that was mostly in aluminum. I also don't recall any supply chain issues with getting taps in a timely manner. If...

    I run all of my composites with flood coolant... I checked with my accountant, and it is cheaper to replace coolant that to replace lungs. In production, we have an elaborate filtration system for...

    Thatís kind of the direction Iím leaning. Seems like a lot of iron to be moving for <1/2Ē diameter work. If it doesnít work out or I move on to full Swiss, I can sell it in about 45 minutes. Plus,...

    Iím not sure yet, it seems like a reasonably simple entry level Swiss is about $100-$150. That would probably work with my business model; however, if I could find a machine for half that, the...

    Sub Spindle Chucker

    I'm designing a new product that would run very nicely on a simple two axis barfed 5C lathe with a sub-spindle. Small diameter, nothing too tricky. Ideally I could find something like the Haas...
