    using ChatGPT and other automation solutions, custom machining chatbot?

    Definitely going through the first peak of the hype cycle right now, this stuff's going nowhere though. It's so concentrated in the programming and copywriting fields rn, and want to bring it to other fields. See a lot of potential for it to speed up physical product development and...

    kind of OT: Open AI / ChatGPT

    2FA is gold standard now. Look up the list of companies breached this year it's astonishing (includes some PASSWORD COMPANIES) It's definitely a data harvesting operation...just not for your personal data which is everywhere. They're data harvesting training data by letting people talk to their...

    using ChatGPT and other automation solutions, custom machining chatbot?

    Yeah machinist world definitely more prone to physical than digital data since it's physical lol. In my the best sources would be: a) forums like this, b) manuals, c) transcripts of videos (might actually be really good), d) blog posts, e) internal company documentation (much harder to get). As...

    using ChatGPT and other automation solutions, custom machining chatbot?

    Wondering if people have had good experience using ChatGPT in the machining world. Been using it like crazy for programming (Javascript web-apps) and it's at least doubled my speed. Been thinking about making a custom fine tuned model with embeddings based off of scraped data from this forum...

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    here are results of a blue spindle taper check, think I used a bit too much but what do people think? it made contact everywhere, but less on that one side.

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    If I get a refrigerated dryer would I need the water trap, auto drain (assume so cuz this is just for the compressor), and motor guard as well? Only have one machine so would rather not spend $800 on a refrigerated dryer just yet (tho willing to if it really makes the difference, will pay for...

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    Have a California Air Tools compressor, don't have a water condenser or anything but Haas has a bleed valve that goes off every 10 minutes. Drain the air compressor about once a week, never have water shooting out of the hand-hose. Does seem to be a moisture issue tho, whether that's air or...

    what's so specifically bad about horizontal grease line? indication of anything in particular?

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    was going off this, maybe I'll bring it down to 50 ft-lb tho?

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    torque ~65 lb-ft (as advised by Haas) do not use Loctite, have heard mixed things about necessity on roughing a few of them, nothing crazy though getting grease right now, can't find Red-I (Haas' recommendation) so planning on getting Mobil XHP-222 not sure on drawbar force, might do...

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    yeah I've only been using the green/gray pads, tho will lay off and get some what grease do you use? looks like Haas recommends Red-I tho it's hard to come by, will Mobile XHP-222 do the trick? Haas has it listed with Red-I on their website, from my research they seem pretty close. what...

    does bright dipping affect part thickness?

    Yeah think I was overthinking it in the beginning. I'm press-fitting magnets and had a few experiences of magnets breaking on the press that spooked me and made me overthink it. Anytime I've thought it was an issue it turned out to be some other variables.

    fretting marks on toolholders, problem? how to fix?

    I'm getting fretting marks on my toolholders. Below are some examples, it is like that on most of the tools. Those lines can be rubbed off with my fingers, mostly those bigger dots. I also attached pictures of what the inside of the spindle taper. Only one side of the taper has marks. I have...

    does bright dipping affect part thickness?

    I am bright dipping my part along with anodization, my type II anodization adds a thickness of 0.0003″ and was wondering if bright dipping affects thickness. From what I know it's a very chemically harsh process that flattens out the surface, and strips a tiny bit away, is it enough to factor...

    CNC machine monitoring camera/microphone for broken tool detection

    are most of these models compatible across machines (I have a Haas Mini Mill 2)? Looking at this ETS, meant for a Tormach trying to figure out if it would work. Also looking at a really cheap option to play around with and test out, something like this

    CNC machine monitoring camera/microphone for broken tool detection

    Yeah this seems like the best solution until I can get a tool setter setup, also good to stop before tools break.

    CNC machine monitoring camera/microphone for broken tool detection

    Yeah I've been a silly goose, somehow didn't think to look for cheaper versions 🤦. Agree that anything I do would be rife with error. Still hoping for someone to make an all-in-one machine monitoring camera + microphone that could do all of this and more for cheap.

    CNC machine monitoring camera/microphone for broken tool detection

    very expensive and don't need that level of accuracy or the tool-setting features yet, might be able to justify in the future maybe with very small tools or tool chips, but tool breaks are very distinct from the constant drones of machining or coolant (my shop also not very loud otherwise)...

    CNC machine monitoring camera/microphone for broken tool detection

    I am looking for a cheap camera and/or microphone system that can automatically stop/reset my CNC mill if it detects a tool breakage. I want it to be quite cheap, and does not need to have any other features. In my mind, this seems like a no-brainer product that should be quite cheap (a few...

    BEST METHOD for cleaning coolant-machined Al parts for blasting and anodization??

    Yes, think this is the solution I will go with. In my last batch half of them were bright dipped and none of those seemed to have staining issues (also looked better anyway). Do you know if they're traditionally bright dipped before or after blasting? If before, would I still want to give em a...
