Re: Machinist Jacks

RSG and/or Steve:
Looks like you have hit on a cottage industry.
Send a cut sheet when you get it off the ground. I'd be interested.

Re: CAD conversation to G-Code

Mr. Shields, your points are all very true. The Cincinnati T-10 was a 10HP horizontal with a 2 pallet changer, 2 45 pocket tool chains with automatic tool changer, an electronic probe and an operator that was really good. Not exactly a simple machine. I guess it probably cannot compare to a home sho...

Re: CAD conversation to G-Code

Long ago in a (job) far, far away, I was tasked with programming a Cincinnati Milicron T-10 horizontal mill. I was sent to Cincinnati to learn how to program the machine and I was also sent to a Numeridex training class in Chicago to learn how to use their software to draw tool paths and have it con...

Re: Next step to learn wheel cutting

Let me be perfectly clear, I know nothing about making clocks. Having said that, you might investigate the WORSHOP PRACTICE SERIES of books available on AMAZON. #17 is Ivan Law's book on Gears and Gear Cutting and #33 is a book on Making Clocks. A guy on Utube called ClickSpring has a bunch of video...

Re: Free and easy to learn 3D CAD

Ok, thanks for the guess. There was never this kind of lag with a local SolidWorks installation, but OnShape is a more powerful program. You may have the right of it. This pc has a 3GHz processor, 8Gbytes of RAM and 750Gbytes of storage space on a Windows 10 64bit OS. It only has an Intel HD graphic...

Re: Free and easy to learn 3D CAD

Question for Patio: When you use fusion on the web, do you find an annoying lag between your mouse movements and the curser movement? In OnShape, it occurs, especially when making drawings, and adjusting Bill of Materials. Not so annoying with the models and assemblies though. I am using a local DSL...

Re: SS is toxic in California

I have no excuse but ignorance. The Italian coffee pot is made from Aluminum and I can't find a Prop 65 sticker anywhere on the pot or box or instructions. My apologies for the "alternate truth".

Re: SS is toxic in California

My daughter and S-I-L gave me a coffee maker that was made in Italy from Stainless steel. On it was a Calif sticker about the dire threat of cancer or birth defects. The instructions came on a sheet printed in 19 different languages. I can hardly imagine the assembly workers' comments as they apply ...

Re: Gear sources

The few gears I have bought for the ATLAS lathe have been from Boston Gear. Good stuff but pricey even in the small sizes.

You spelled Zorro wrong. And the different rates are for a larger or smaller "Z"?

Re: Backing up computer files

Mr. Ron, I am sorry that you lost all your data. That is devastating to a hobbyist. Before the copy of SW I used timed out, I made hard copies of all the drawings, and electronic copies on a thumb drive of all the files and put them in a notebook. I also made a copy of the SW Viewer software and put...

Thanks, rudd. I have directed others to Vintagemachinery.com and when the time came, I forgot to go there myself. DUH! :oops:
