    Bore gage setting fixture cross compatibility?

    +$129.99 shipping for that particular unit, approaching the cost of the brand new Starrett, I think id rather have the new tool. There was another one that you posted in the related items priced at $1000 so I’m not sure they would accept an offer of $250. I do appreciate another option though

    Bore gage setting fixture cross compatibility?

    this is A very specific question so I may not get an answer but figured it wouldnt hurt to ask. I have the Mitutoyo 511-931-20 dial bore gage set. I was looking to pick up a setting fixture but didn’t really want to spend almost $2k on the mitutoyo fixture. I saw that both starrett and Fowler...

    Carbide inserts that don’t need to be ran at crazy high speeds

    The spindle rpm seems to be what im fighting more than power. 2000 is all it will do but I’ve put the numbers off the packaging into calculators and a lot of them wind up well past the rpm capability of the machine. Like wellll past it

    Carbide inserts that don’t need to be ran at crazy high speeds

    10hp. 3058lb thrust on X and 3504 on Y. Weighs 2500lb. Not sure if the thrust or weight is relevant but seemed like it might be. The website also says 2500rpm on the spindle but I’m 99.99% sure ours only goes to 2k, that’s all info off the website and ours is around 10years old iirc. Also, now...

    Carbide inserts that don’t need to be ran at crazy high speeds

    Carbide inserts that don’t need to be ran at crazy high speeds

    This is a great idea. Thank you. my thought process behind “burning“ them up is I’m having a hard time with chatter and gradually lose surface finish. I think a lot of the chatter is coming from not having a good starting point for speeds and feeds. I usually. Try to figure out what the...

    Carbide inserts that don’t need to be ran at crazy high speeds

    For starters, I’m admittedly not super experienced with cnc machining so take it easy on me. over The past year or so I’ve taught myself how to program the cnc lathe at my job. As you might expect this has been a pretty monumental task but I’ve gotten the hang of it for the most part. One issue...

    “Invalid tool pos”. Fryer et18 lathe.

    Hey guys, I’ve been getting this message and I cannot figure out what’s going on. I finished up work one night after it finished a part, shut the machine down, came back a couple of days later, load a fresh part, go to execute the program and all of a sudden it doesn’t like the tool position...

    Suggestions for new automatic surface grinders for very basic work

    Right now I’ve been using an acer 1224 automatic grinder. The spindle bearings are roaring so loud I have to wear hearing protection, the ways are worn, and the controller for the cross feed works sporadically. So I’ve been tasked with getting quotes and what not for a new machine. This will...
