  1. I have the okay to replace one of our Bridgeport Mills this year. I am considering something like a Trak mill. I need something that has a similar foot print and also can be run manually. Any recommendations?

    Cleaning tool holders

    A better question would be, how do you make sure the people in shop clean the tool holders?

    MC 2018 Wire ---- Why is this so hard?

    I've been using MC Wire for over 20 years on Mitsubishi Machines. I am currently using MC 2020 to program 3 Mits. machines, one of them being a new MV1200-R. I have no problem programming tapers. I don't quite understand what you are trying to accomplish and where your struggles lie.

    Soft it machines like D2 but It's a pain to grind after hardening.

    What is the most efficient way to program countersinks? The flat on the end varies . There doesn't seem to be a spelled out standard for these tools. I have been physically measuring tools before I program them.

    X+ Tool list crashing 2018

    It has been my experience with X+ crashing in 2018 is when I open a part that was previously programmed and try outputting a setup sheet with doing a regen.

    1/32" End Mill

    Have spoke to the engineer of the part? Possibly that small of a radius isn't necessary and was over looked in the design. I run into that quite often.

    Stock model newbee

    If I understand it correctly, if I have a complex part and want to use optirest, I can set up a stock model using the previous operations to use for the rest mill setup?
