    I'm using a 1/4-20 threadmill to groove these parts. Its purely a stress reliever so these will press fit in a metal bore. Without them the id tolerance of the bore makes some parts not fit. It...

    Small part ideas

    What is the cheapest way to build 2100 ea of these? Length is 0.68" and right at 0.372" max dimension.

    I've been doing these with 24" x 0.9" x 0.5" strips held vertical in my vf2, but 40+ hours...

    I use this: CAT40 Tool Probe Calibrator - Made in USA MariTool

    But the main point without a tool setter is that somehow you link the haimer length to a wcs. But if you use the above with an Edge...

    I could see it being useful to be able to measure the WCS using the tool offset table. However, it would come at the cost of complexity, which is always a risk. If you don't use a toolsetter, there...

    Like others have said, coolant. Its the only way for consistent good finishes on plastics in my experience. I'd say a mister with alcohol might work, if you can get the chips out of the way well...

    Beware of STI taps, sort of a guilty until proven innocent approach.

    Personal experiences with 10-32 and M4.0X0.7 sizes:

    Balax form taps are oblong, basically don't work in aluminum, seem to...

    Its hard to say without seeing it, but the one way valve at the pump is working, right? Otherwise the thing will siphon every time it stops.

    Are you clearing out the MDI screen? One gotcha on these tool setting subroutines is that the routine always pre sets your tool offsets to whatever value you guess at. So if you accidentally hit...

    My vote would be the cr21 and cr22. Diodes types almost always have some temperature curve somehow. Of course you'll have to find that 15hp schematic floating around on the c n c z o n e forums

    It depends on size, ultimately you need to keep acceleration low, so if the interpolation is say, 0.100", its probably more like 15-20ipm I'd say.

    I think its a limitation of many controls, at least haas ones. My 2012 control does similar.

    Think of it this way. Assume a servo loop of 1ms, or 1000 blocks per second. This means there is a...

    I had a similar issue. I ended up putting the old screen back in. My gut feeling was that the video card was slightly off or something, and the screen would lose sync.

    Are you inadvertently using dprint? Like using renishaw reporting for some reason? Just for kicks you could up your rs232 baud and see what that does. For some reason I notice this on haas/renishaw...

    Sounds like it didn't get set up correctly. There are two macros in the upper 500 range, one is for spinning tools. You can fiddle with this until it's right if you have a reference.
