    I'm not able to get to the main MC forum because I'm unable to Link my account (work computer on lock down). Is it possible for someone to post this .pdf ?

    Duel Hasps

    Funny thing is I just talked to the reseller on Friday and we're gonna switch back to a USB dongle. Too many times I have to call the IT gods and let them know the license has been kicked out and MC isn't working. Heaven forbid someone opens MC in another building and leaves for the day My programming computer is a laptop, so with a USB dongle I can program offline. I'm the only user of the software, other than the random engineer that "wants to learn MC" $80 charge to switch back to USB.

    Long Reach strategy

    Thanks Colin, Management decided It was too high risk of part at the moment with what I've got going on. There were other stupid features on the part as well.

    micro endmills

    Looking through that PMT site, they have sub .001" endmills. .001" and up actually have a square end cut. How do you generate enough rip-em's to use a .001" endmill????

    Wouldn't it need a .125" R ? I was thinking .187 ball and step down/over

    Yes, it's normal to Z. It's not just a full radius, there's a .05 wide flat section. the slot overall width is .3" But, yes that little ledge outlined in green is also normal to Z It's 7050 T7 Aluminum

    Long Reach strategy

    I'm attaching a snapshot of a part I may get stuck doing. I can't share the file, but You can get the idea from the pic. The corner radius on each side of the groove is .125", the small flat section - In the bottom of the groove is .05" That's easy to cut, but that feature is 3" deep right up next to the wall.... I don't have a way to tilt as I go around (3 axis). I know long reach Harvey Tools (possibly specials) will be needed, I can purchase pretty much any tooling within reason. Anyone have any secrets they're willing to share?
