    Allied machine threadmills

    I always though about burning a hex into a roll tap that breaks. Then you can just use a hex key and back it out. Never tied it though.

    Way less stress then tapping. At least with a threadmill you can just pick out the tool if you break it off. We don't have time on this wind tunnel model to sit there and burn out a tap.

    You probably have to post up the whole file

    Just finished up doing some 0-80 in 13-8. way easier than tapping.

    mastercam 2020 question

    I just copy and pasted a toolpath. Then I changed a little of my geometry and suddenly I am getting a machine home posiotion in my code. I don't know how it got there? Also it looks like Mastercam 2020 removed the post debugger. % O1212 (FDSJFSKLD) (DATE=DD-MM-YY - 29-03-19 TIME=HH:MM - 07:54) (MCAM FILE - C:\USERS\ASMURPHY\DOCUMENTS\WORKFOLDER\MASTERCAM 2020\A9SP-1804-M1) (NC FILE - C:\USERS\ASMURPHY\DOCUMENTS\MY MASTERCAM 2020\MASTERCAM\MILL\NC\FDSJ) (MATERIAL - ALUMINUM INCH - 2024) (T2|2 SLOTTING TOOL OR SAW|H2|D2|TOOL DIA. - 2.|WEAR COMP|XY STOCK - .01|Z STOC) N1 G20 N2 G0 G17 G40 G49 G80 G90 / N3 G53 Z0.

    lathe tool inspection

    I have found what I needed but coolant is not being called up after the tool inspection point. There is no M88 recalled. But it looks like there is a coolant call in the post.

    lock G-view

    How can I lock my G,C & T views to only stay on my current view? I am running a ton of lathe and every time I do an alt-1 or a top view button from my space pilot it changes the G,C&T views back to top. Normally this is not an issue but when I go to analyze my geometry it keeps defaulting back to mill coordinates instead of lathe view I am using.

    Best toolholder for 1/8" shank tools?

    I like the Showa M-Series chucks. They work great for tight spaces.

    What's the starting price on that thing?
  15. We have a Haas SL40. The low pressure pump M8 is hooked up to the wipers on the steady rest. The High pressure pump M88 is hooked up through the turret for the tool. But the controller is not letting me engage both pumps at the same time. Does anyone know any ways around this?
