    It's like an F-35. Trying to do too many things at once, no good at any of it.

    H11 IS a tolerance. Your scenario was throw a part at a guy and ask him to make it without a print, and you ridiculed the concept that they had the gall to ask for a print. Yeah, if you bring in a...

    If you hand me a part and ask if I can make it I will ask for a fully dimensioned and toleranced print (or a model that includes tolerances on every dimension) before giving an answer. If you don't...

    Got a lot of Maritool holders here, ER-11, ER-16, ER-32, and a couple endmill holders. Coolant thru studs in all. Can't find a fault with them. I've also got their induction machine, which is...

    That's a hobby machine, and as such is against the rules to discuss here. That said, either use a flycutter or take multiple passes with a much smaller solid carbide cutter.

    A 3" indexable is probably too big to run on a VF-2 in 4140 prehard with good results unless it's a shallow finish pass. You have a Yamaha R-6, not a Ford F-350. I'd use a smaller solid carbide...

    Better rigidity is always better, all else being equal. It also tends to be more expensive. Is it worth paying for, for your parts in your shop? That's up to you. It can also have some...

    I run 15K for hours on end in Titanium for finishing small surface details with a 1/32" ball. I'm getting a quote for a Toodle so I can run it faster.

    I just did that a couple weeks ago on a VMC with trunnion to make a fixture mounting plate, but with a much finer stepover. It ensures that a circle at any given radius on the machined surface will...

    Okay, here's your helpful answer. It's a bad idea, and you could have had the right stuff delivered by now if you had ordered it when asking your question. Some people spend a lot of time and...

    I only use line numbers at toolchanges. With 10,000+ line computer generated programs you're not going to be restarting in the middle of a tool anyway. In Mastercam you can click "force toolchange"...

    On top of what was said above, every CNC knee mill that I've seen can be used manually. No need to strip anything off. Many will use the encoders as a DRO in manual mode.
