    90's - 00's European VMC's Mikron, Hermle, etc.

    Agree with the others about being able to work on the machines. That being said I have a 1991 Hermle UWF-851 with an ancient 4-axis TNC355 and have received awesome support from the US based office. If they don't have an answer they shoot the question over to Germany and I hear back in a day...

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    I agree that this test wouldn't be something normally done if say the linear rails are new and installed properly. A machine with the linear rails loosened, screws that had somehow backed off on the linear rail mounting surface or say damaged linear bearings could show more than acceptable...

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    I'll do some more testing this weekend and report back my findings. I'd doubt I'd see much deflection from manipulating the sheet metal but only way to know is to test.

    Suggestions for BT30 Dual Contact Tool Holders for a Brother Speedio S700Xd1

    Yes, please do. I've got a few in my cart that I've been looking forward to trying.

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    No I suspect not. But I guess I was expecting a bit more of a detailed response like..."We don't publish that spec but we use XYZ linear rails and the part number is ABC so you could run the calcs if you'd like"; which I'd happily do. It was just a total disinterest in the question and the...

    Looking for a good mid grade 3d printer to get started with.

    For inserts, if possible, I stop the print at a specified layer and add a nut or threaded body and then continue printing around/on top of the inserted part. Works well. Here's a good video showing that process...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk6MkW1eRiY. Also, check out @ 4:26 where he...

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    Yea, 0.0002" sounds more reasonable. I called Yamazen (central office) and they said they didn't have a spec (?) and that "yea, it should move a little". A bit underwhelming to say the least for my first call into the technical department.

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    I'll do it with 50lbs as well to compare and report back. I was using more like ~20lbs.

    Brother TC-S2Dn-0 Z Axis Deflection Spec in X Direction

    Doing some cleaning/checking on the mill this morning and noted about 0.0007" deflection on the Z axis housing (measuring directly below the spindle face on a tool holder) when I pushed/pulled a bit in the X direction. I was looking in the manuals and didn't see a spec for the Z axis side to...

    Pricing on a part...I lost my time logs.

    WAG...$3300. $1500 for reverse engineering. $100 for material and fixtures. $1750 for machining and setup. But if you told him $750 like I would have made the mistake of doing, start crying now. I do have 3D scanners that would help make the model quickly and then would just dial in the...

    How fast can I feed with a carbide slitting saw without a keyway?

    Was I dreaming or did I sense a pull in the force as you were finalizing the design for the flush mount saws 😉

    New to 4140 pre hard

    Can't speak for the OP but if this was me I'd just pay for the inserts myself, finish the job like it should be done and then hand an example off to the boss with the crappy insert. As long as their isnt any arrogance or condescending attitude it should be a great learning experience and may...

    How fast can I feed with a carbide slitting saw without a keyway?

    I run a staggered tooth 1/16 carbide saw (from Maritool) and run it normally at 1547 RPM and 12IPM through aluminum as deep as I can go. A bit slow but I've run hundreds of parts with this same formula without any issues. I run much faster (RPM and feed) in plastic and much slower RPM in 17-4...

    Thanks Kevin, nice parts. I'm looking for 100 series accessories and these (I think) are for the smaller version. Thanks again.

    Looking for a good mid grade 3d printer to get started with.

    AMS has been working great for me. Only issues I've had is broken filament in the AMS system which must be pulled out (3 min fix). I've only seen this issue with a single roll of PLA Tough (Bambu brand). Game changer for me (besides the speed and quality of the prints) has been the Bambu...

    Speedi Sleeve / Shaft repair sleeve questions

    I've used the SKF a number of times with success. Only issue I've run into was the sleeve slightly deformed around a keyway that I was attempting to cover with the sleeve. Makes sense as that was outside the design intent for the sleeve. Used properly I've never had an issue.
