    My dad had a saying, that if a material has a name, leave it for the next guy.
    Also, if it's real pretty looking in the stock rack, leave it. It's a little like mother nature, the prettiest animals...

    I used to work for a major MTB and we had several different spindle options on our VMCs. Much of this depends on what and how you will be cutting. Remember that what is a normal spindle today was a...

    My compressor will go to 200 psi, but I regulate down to 90 in the lines. Unless there's some process or equipment that "really" needs that kind of pressure, I can't see a reason.

    You'll need an ATF Manufacturer's license and, most likely, a manufacturer's license from your home state. Depending on how "urbane" your locality is, your local and county governments may have...

    I wound up using an old laptop and a USB to RS-232 cable. Works well. I've only got four CNCs and they're in close proximity to each other, so I don't have a lot of ground to cover.

    There are straddle type tools that can utilize the Y axis and straddle the part as you cut. I think Sandvik makes one.

    Usually, the Z axis hard limit switch is located at the rearward (tailstock) end of the machine and is accessible via sheetmetal covers on the back.

    My take is to learn G code. Relying on a CAM system can cripple you. if it's doing something you don't like, it would be difficult for you to fix it. Plus, even for simple shapes you would be...

    In my first shop, I made the mistake of using PVC from Home Depot. After a few startling explosions including one where a shut off valve ruffled my hair as it whistled past, I learned my lesson. ...

    As far as machining goes, hi-pressure coolant is quite beneficial. Depending on your coolant and other factors, you could wind up with a foaming issue.

    For me, not that much. Even the few times it did happen it usually falls clear and slams the chip conveyor belt. Like I said, we never really had a problem. The lube is constantly metered, the wipers...

    The big media and big corps are playing us off one another. Keep us fighting with each other over trivial shit while they sell the Country out. They fear the people.

    Doosan has exposed rails for X axis on many roller guide lathes. I never heard of a problem in the time I worked for them. They still have way wipers and lube so I don't think the machine would...

    There are a few advantages.

    You can boogey thru the part faster. You get a cleaner part off. The tool will last longer as it's more rigid.
    Downside, you have to tinker a little with the setup.
