    OT: Property Damage question... How long should it take to get information or even a police report.

    When I moved to New Mexico, you have no idea how many people asked me if I had to get a passport. New Mexico... Its not NEW, and Its NOT MEXICO!!!!!!!! Its Hatch dude... Its 2 square miles, population just over 1500... No other towns, villages or cities within 30 miles.. Its just county...

    OT: Property Damage question... How long should it take to get information or even a police report.

    That's kind of what I thought, I've known the guy for years, met him at the bar.. He did the fencing at my house, twice (added more), and done some fixing for me here at the shop. The stuff at my house, he did cheaper than I could have bought the material for, and he cemented in all the...

    OT: Property Damage question... How long should it take to get information or even a police report.

    And the kid had driven off.. And you had all that within a week. This police officer had ALL THE INFORMATION I NEED right now, 17 days ago, while he was standing in front of my building.. And I can NOT get of any of that information.. Nobody will give me anything. Nothing. Not a name...

    OT: Property Damage question... How long should it take to get information or even a police report.

    So I'm sitting here at 5 in the morning a few weeks ago, and I hear a lot of bad noises.. Explosions, and things hitting the building, and rumbling noises.. I swear it lasted for about 30 seconds, but it was only 5 or 6.... And after all the explosions and roaring stopped, things were still...

    My Mazak doesn't read ISO files

    I thought everything from "+" had eia/iso as standard, not an option.

    UNS and UN thread

    Threadpal is pretty sweet.. I put off buying it for years.. Suffered through googling, and messing with the Machinery Handbook, looking up formulas, crunching #'s, trying to remember where I left this spec or that spec.. And then I got a couple of jobs that had a bunch of oddball threads...

    Customer requesting discounts / price matching

    Why is she wearing a belt? Those shorts wouldn't fall down if she was standing on Jupiter*. *IF one could stand on Jupiter, gas giant and all... Massive planet.. Lots of gravity (almost typed Gravy), blah blah blah...

    Customer requesting discounts / price matching

    Something? To me that's everything.. And I completely understand that I DO NOT represent all shops.. I get that sometimes, its just #'s and an essentially faceless customer. So.. I have one customer.. He does some pretty cool stuff. He does it smaller than he used to, and that's fine...

    Honing PTFE (Teflon)

    Is this the machining board, or is this relationship advice?

    Honing PTFE (Teflon)

    Years ago I got an RFQ for a teflon part that had some stupid tight dimensions. The one thing those engineers had going for them, is they had a table for the dimensions right on the print.. Different dimensions for 64 degrees, 66 degrees, 68 degrees, 70 degrees, 72 degrees, 74 degrees and 76...

    Measuring carbide insert nose radius

    Look at them? A "1" is really easy to tell from a "2".. I have a few .008"s, those are in a labeled box. So are the .004's and the few sharp ones I have are in their own box.

    Thinking about starting a shop...

    You don't even have to spend a ton.. Y'all can sit down, (without lawyer), write down what you want in your partnership agreement, then just have a lawyer look it over, fluff it so its in legalize, then have the mess notarized.. Quick story: I had an exterminator that was starting his own...

    What size Rotary Phase Converter do I need?

    My 2 cents.. Not necessary on a mill.. On a lathe, yes... Why? On a mill, you can control the horsepower you need, if you've ever run a small knee mill using modern cutting tools, you do have to back figure for HP, 2 or 3 horses.. You can do the same on a VMC,, keep it under 10 or...

    Math in Manufacturing

    Seems like mostly busy work and wrote memorization of stupid stuff to me.. As time moves on, new things need to be placed into your brain so you can function, either in society or in a job. Cursive for instance.. Its designed so you can write faster.. But now everybody types, and they have...

    Source for small volumes of ISO460 gear oil for cold saw?

    There is a really awesome thing you can do with google... Type in "ISO460 equivalent." Its 85W140. About $22 a gallon, and in stock, down at every Autozone. They also have it for about $7.50 a quart.

    Math in Manufacturing

    I have to disagree. Coordinates are the one thing that is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL in machining. Ever walk up to a cnc knee mill and see written in sharpie on the table... <--- X positive. That shows a total lack of understanding of coordinates, or at least frame of reference. Maybe...
