    Clear plastic thin wall rigid tube

    I get tubes from petro packaging. You'll need to buy 100 or whatnot.

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    Had to look those names up. Keith was the one I talked to at the show and mentioned the 9 second toolchange number on the Syil. He had said he'd known Titan for 30 years and came over the in Texas move. Funny the cutie in the new videos is his daughter.

    Boombastic Open House: Manufacturing trade event Dallas Fort Worth May 2nd & 3rd

    There was pretty good turn out from what I could tell. Parking lot was jammed. Free admission and nice looking catered food. My only complaint was big tvs playing machining videos really loud and on repeat. There was plenty of noise with the real machines running, but whatever. The big DN 5ax...

    Boombastic Open House: Manufacturing trade event Dallas Fort Worth May 2nd & 3rd

    I went. The Heller was cool to watch. Facing steel with maybe 6" shell mill spraying the door with chips. Maybe 1/4" doc. Cutter was about eye level. The only torsnos running was the one with 8 spindles, knocking out a hose connector type part every 11 sec. Titan must have been up in the office...

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    Here's the video of the X5 running. Focus is crappy, but you get the idea. Kinda painful to watch if you are used to a Speedio or Robodrill. Apparently this part is chapter 1 in his academy. I've never watched a Titan video. The production quality is so awful. Like you have to have ADHD as...

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    I forgot to mention about the Syil. That f**cker is short! I'm 6'1" and would like my Speedio to be jacked up a few inches. The Syil is worse. It made my back hurt just looking at it. Here are the only pictures I took. They had two Syil machines, bunches of DNS machines, 5ax, mill turn...

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    Not sure, he (salesguy selling these with Titan) said 9 seconds. they did not have that style on display.

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    Yes, I think the umbrella style is what he was referring to. Then you can upgrade to a double arm deal. Not sure if you can get the burgmaster/robodrill style on the X7

    Titan is peddling Syil?

    I just stopped by Titan's open house and saw the X5 and X7 running. They seem like decent little machines. Of course they had a nice Schunk vise in it. I'm not sure about the control. Coming from running a Speedio, they just are not in the same class is how I felt about it. They seemed to...

    Mist Collector for Brothers

    What model is that? The Royal is is squirrel cage fan IIRC, piece of foam and drain port. They consider that good enough for your lungs, so it can also go outside. If you try at all to do some reclaim (good fan type, blow it into something that can catch some and drain it) I'll bet you'll be...

    Mist Collector for Brothers

    a Royal is just a loud ass fan with a little centrifuge action and a piece of foam and a drain line. I'm just missing the foam and drain line, and I use a quiet $60 fan. I was looking at HRV units for a while. Looking at the spec sheets, they really seemed like bs. Not really doing any heat...

    Mist Collector for Brothers

    My setup was $200 plus a couple hours for the bare bones get the crap out of my face. I lose more to evap. but good enough until I have time to fancy it up. Blowing the crap back into the shop is a losing scenario for me. I'd rather spend money on a little conditioned air lost than having my...

    Mist Collector for Brothers

    I had a Royal Mist Creator for a while. Yeah, so you're not supposed to turn it on and off with each cycle, so it sits there and runs (and loud), forced convection through a wet box, creating more mist.. Just blow it outside. I had it where I had return air back from outside, so the enclosure...

    Sentry Business insurance

    My policy renews every year. If I want to ditch them, I just opt to not renew. Maybe there's a cost to cancel mid year? I can't think what else they'd be talking about.

    Sentry Business insurance

    Man, that's weird about them changing stuff on your policy. They've been fairly squared away for me. I've had three claims. Bumped a spindle when I was just starting out (should have just eaten that one), got robbed 10k. Just recently shop heavily damaged in fire, about 200k. No hassles on any...

    OT Ok now that I have quit smoking what do I do with my hands.

    cold turkey is the only way to go. Congrats. It gets easier the longer it's been. I failed multiple times before it worked. If you can make it 3 months, you got it. Good luck

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

    pardon my ignorance, but I don't see any links to the collets. Are they special? MSC seems to indicate it just uses ER16 collets? i'm trying to understand how they are so much better if they just use run of the mill ER16 collets. I must be missing something

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

    Can you post a link to these holders? I keep hearing about them, but when I google, I'm just seeing ER holders made by Rego. Thanks

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

    Just received my 1.75 gauge length 3/8" dual contact side locks. Thanks Frank and Tom at Maritool! Kinda wish they had a new products section to see what's just in. https://www.maritool.com/product_info.php?products_id=24432
