    So when are you gonna buy some cheap Chinese PCB boards with LED's and stick them into a holder? It'll be a great intelligent tool. If someone buys it, you know they aren't the sharpest tool in the...

    I'll answer for you then. Marketing had NOTHING to do with what happened. It's just money and ONLY about money. There are no morals involved. At best it's some grieving parents being taken advantage...

    What marketing? The hate-filled, self-projecting left owns 95% of all of the media market to advertise on and bans any form of firearm advertising even for stores that just want to sell accessories....

    Well, one reason I can give is certain "machinists" I have worked with seem to revel in using every bit of tolerance they are given. You give them +-.005 every part will be +-.005. So for Daniels...

    To be fair if you aren't into power sports I don't know who would be in the know of them. Only reason I know of them is at a shop I used to work at, the owner rebuilt them complete with a small...

    Field Company is one that comes to my mind. They machine all of their pans. I got 2 of them out of curiosity. They are difficult to start the season on, but so far seem to be holding it fairly well....

    Mitsubishi has a similar line, but for us at least, the tended to be more expensive than the ISCAR line when we looked into them.

    They are really handy in turning centers because you can quickly...

    I use an optical comparator all the time for checking threads. Usually though I have to use molds because the parts/threads are too big. Still accurate enough for good fits.

    I love people having no idea of the difference in cost of tools. Like the 5mm drill we use to drill into 55Rc 4340 that costs $150 and they can't grasp the difference between that and the $15 "drill...

    Amen. My dad recently had this problem where he works. The distributor said the pipe came from Poland. Instead of a nice clean strait seam, it spiraled the whole length of the pipe. He couldn't work...

    Yea I don't see it either. You can do a quick glance at a dial and see exactly where you are. Not to mention trying to train somebody new in how to read verniers. It's why I've always kept some handy...

    I'm in this spot now. Years ago in between jobs I paid for myself to take training for MasterCam X9. Now they expect us to use GTAC for every little thing because they are paying for it. I'm sure...

    My guess would be like all great advances it was a mistake that worked. The first company to really make and sell them messed up their first batch and just ran with it. They were successful so...

    Best term I can think of would be a form cutter. As Matt says it would be a special order tool who's value would depend on how much use you could get out of it.

    Got mine already. My shop does them for free. Cheaper to pay for the shop to get shots than to have half the shop out with the flu.

    Seems a bit of a PITA to have to buy a $450 dial probe or a $1000 and up probe to do a simple set up where a $12 edge finder would work.

    Well that sucks. It's been years since I ran a Haas, but I still remember my start up procedure: Settings, 51, down, right, enter, power up restart.
