  1. Was....11x with 3x different languages mixing between 2ax lathes and 4ax mills. And ditto #Rekd™ Somedays were gravy with the vast majority of repeat work and then the phone would ring. Usually, on a Friday morning....
  2. +1 for milling the thread core but in steel with the same tool, I'd rough the C/B undersize too. The less work the tool has to do, the sweeter the parts will run
  3. Yep where possible - talking predominantly aluminium. For steels I'd be running a bull mill - say 0.5 (20 thou) corner rad on the tip as a strengthener. Only talking chamfers or angled walls.
  4. I would also use the "up and down" as often as possible - on average (neck out) you get a better finish for a lot less toolpath travel (= less cycle time) @Jake L nice explanation
  5. Josh - you'd be great in politics - I'd vote for you Edit:- my bad, I got the products and owners/writers mixed up (with name of Bob). Same comment though, buy HSM and integrate it!
  6. Yes - mine did as you say after much modification but original post didn't - just retracted and stopped spindle and then press go and away it went. Very dangerous and hence me saying probossibly!
  7. Probossibly this! I would also look to do a forced toolchange if you're in knarly mtl....purely from the point that you can then change inserts/tool, set tool length, move the table or head and even go get a coffee etc, and then when you hit the green button re-position and importantly height offset etc is all correctly recalled. Toolinspection can be fine, but if reset is hit (depending upon the specific machine parameter configuration) it can be a real bad 10 seconds if G43H isn't called....
  8. I have a notepad doc with tool diameters, type/make, stickout, holder and material as default go-to's for what has previously worked (well). But if I was still doing "it", I'd buy this. Yours is the best explanation I've ever read on this. For what it does compared to the Mcam RCTF (disclaimer - which I never used), if I was CNC i'd "buy Bob" and properly integrate into Mcam....
  9. Yehbut in my world, at least you'd look good....
  10. "Oh, Yeh, but print is king anyway"....
  11. Don't forget to scale the screw to get the pitch diameter correct, and then add the appropriate root radius to the thread
  12. 3 thou and 7 thou DOC's? So that's where the name "ever lasting carbide" comes from?
  13. Alex's post now seems more relevant than ever with the glutenous b4stards around the big table squeezing us all ever tighter and tighter. And yes, this place was awesome, and we're all just passing through....
  14. Unsure now but if it's a few hunnerd it pays for itself easy https://www.gmccs.de/xplus.php
  15. /swerve X+....1x click and it can tell you G54/55 etc, RPM, T=D, Coolant, etc....
  16. ....and a thread that's a through hole, but with the annotation stating the material thickness and a plus/minus on it!
  17. Also....surfaces give the easy ability to manipulate (the drive) by extending/trimming etc....
  18. Outta likes - I'll have to approve your post tomorrow!!!!
  19. To be specific o, we must mention Pacifico.... Anyway - where's the OP? Is it too early to start drunk posting
  20. As i said John - talking levels primarily but also as Matt said. Anything to stop the fat finger fudge!
  21. I just blew the cobwebs off the 'ol memory bank and bashing the abacus I reckon a max for me is between 10,000 to 15000. But I am TheeNewbeeee and prolly spent most my time in OT
