    Chip Trap

    ^^ Yup and also you can add the Scratch Bright in fine med or others for a added parts catcher / filter system for the fines and those little parts that are hard to find when they get parted off and go somewhere else other than were you wanted them to go . Its makes the Easter egg hunt a little easier. That Is for the lathe but in the drop tray on the haas works also.

    Rookie Mistake

    I always use X+ for set ups and just for the notes also, since when you bounce around on multiple machines and then things sit for a while you can get back in sync with the jobs just by reviewing the X+ notes that you made and your ready to go . + GAZILLION TO Gunther !!! I and Others Thank Gunther For The Fine Work That He created For us all to use.

    Optical Target Tools for Vision Systems

    Hi jlw thanks for the link i checked it out and it has some nice projects to do things with. I just need something i can position parts on a fxt in the machine and then after the work is done maybe go back and use the mill to verify the work before i remove the parts but if it looks good and measures good with the optics i can check a few places to verify location of features but as you know there is always the chance that one may get away. We may just have to get a dedicated machine for all the work instead of moving things around.

    Optical Target Tools for Vision Systems Vision System/CNC Vision Measuring Machine/$catalogue/mitutoyoData/PR/364-713-10SY/index.xhtml if i could find something like this that can be adapted to put in a cat 40 tool holder so i can pick up targets and have a large display to verify positions but it needs to be adapted to fit in the spindle.That is kinda what i am looking for . ???

    Optical Target Tools for Vision Systems

    Hi Colin Thanks for the link on that . We have one and its ok for some things but what i am doing is a little closer than what that does.I was at a start up a few years ago and we had a optical microscope by Sony or Mitutoyo and it had a camera and digital read out that could measure and magnify down to i think 500x to 1000x and we could use it to check radius's and distances and also get third angle iso projections with it. But i can not find anything short of a cmm or laser measuring tools on a cmm or optical comparator .Even some engineers have said they remember the tool mounted devices like the Centering Scope but they had better optics and microscope tube that was extended out so you did not have your head under the spindle to see anything and the view was much better.It has been a steady search on my end and we have others looking also . I was thinking some of the Optical Tool MFG guys should have something that we can make work and as said above if we can mount the rig in a tool holder that we could make work. But If you know of any Super Precise Optical Scopes like you have on microscopes with a decent field of view and they can be adapted for the process that might work for us.They might be calling it something else now and that might have some impact on the searches . Thanks for your input Close But No Cigar Yet
  14. I have a need for a optical camera or a microscope / Bore scope to set up a position that varies all over the place with some projects that need to be located on a fixture before we can do any work to them. It would be nice to have a tool holder that would hold the device so it can be centered in a VMC since that is what we are doing the work on and then we can verify the parts and the machine gets the same numbers.I have been looking for a while and have not found what i am looking for so the more users that may know of this search the better my odds are.Any and all help will be Very Appreciated . Ultimately If it had blue tooth or wireless capability to project to a larger display nearby for viewing the locations of the parts,that would be Very Handy. I used a Bridgeport Optical Set Up System a few years ago but i can not find anything near that system that was very simple and it worked. This needs to be close enough so we can also use it to measure features after the process to verify locations before we remove the parts from the fixture. These items need to be withing +-.005 from a distant feature over or inside of a 24.00 rectangle. Thanks To all Cheers
