    Jones and shipman veterans/experts

    Im now in a position where Iím the only toolmaker in my firm and now responsible for all our surface grinding. We have two late 60s J&S one 1400 and one standard 540. they both had the ways done a...

    Ah okay, hopefully Iím not in the shit. Will the machine remember which orientation the spindle needs to rotate too so the LED windows line up? Iím not sure if itís a fixed setting or if itís set at...
  4. Deleted renishaw probe from tool library on XYZ Vulcan 810D with Siemens controller

    Hi guys,

    I made a mistake when calling my probe and deleted the probe from the tool library as the tool call and tool delete buttons are adjacent for some helpful reason...

    TP and TN are just the positions of each plane for top and bottom respectively. And always that way round, regardless of top or bottom open. This becomes clear when we do a job which has angles of...

    Yes too coolant, I requested it be reinstalled as the previous toolmaker doesnít believe in coolant...

    And yes itís an 8inch when new but we use them down to 6 inch so we loose a lot of surface...

    Yer it has powered feed, itís a Jones and shipman 1400 itís in amazing condition and grinds to 2 microns with ease. Probably one of the best condition J&S Iíve ever used.

    Wheel speed goes from 22m/s up to 26m/s (the wheels recommends either 40/50ms) depending on how much left on the wheel.
    Iíve been changing the step over from 1.5mm to 2.5mm which is the max step...

    Itís no where near as frustrating to grind as D2, but I feel itís being far more of a pain then it should be.

    I will put all your wheel suggestions in to the mix, but Iíve already tried a 38A...

    What wheel grade did you use for D2 just out of curiosity?

    Thatís the thing, the steel is in the 30-35 HRC range where other stainless tool steels are normally fully hard.
  12. Wheel Recommendations for 1.2316 stainless steel tool steel

    Has anyone got much experience grinding 1.2316?

    In my previous experience Iíve ground a lot of 1.2083(stavax), 1.2085, H13 and ramax and have used a Norton 3GS 60/46 J/K type wheel and have had...

    Insize tools arenít too shabby for an occasional use/personal use tool. I wouldnít vouch for them being frequently used and wearing well though.

    These differences are in the seconds. But weíve been doing highly repetitive forms. so these seconds are all forming large differences over the jobs duration.
  15. Different steels, different speeds... our toolroom argument.

    Hi guys,

    Not posted in a while but I need some expert info on why some steels cut quicker then others in EDM. This applies to WEDM, sinker and hole drilling.

    We have been doing some jobs...

    Excuse my typo, I meant 0.005mm not 0.05mm but regardless, the proof is in the pudding. If it grinds well, then it works, just no guarantees for the longevity.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have the belt attached And tensioned on the spindle? On a good machine Iím used to seeing 0.005mm total endplay or less. Plus how much force are you using on the...

    Spend an after noon with a depth mic and select each feed at a time while rotating the spindle exactly one turn. Then mark our what combination does what. Should give you pretty good results.

    EDM will be the lowest risk option. Put it this way, if you break the tap, youíll only need to EDM it anyway. So save the hassle and EDM!
