Re: Learned something about drilling today

For accurate hole location, I am with the wiggler/centerdrill/spotter school of thought, even on the drill press.

Re: Face plate options?

Re: Inexpensive DRO

Mr. Ron, I know nothing about these DRO kits. Having said that, I bought an electronic 1 axis scale from a well known Chinese importer and found that when the axis was moved, it took the display a bit of time to catch up. In fact one could stop cranking and the display would still be changing. Final...

Dial Indicator warning light

Being too cheap to buy a set of DRO's for my ancient horizontal mill, I use a dial indicator on my z axis. Well I have damaged a couple of them because I apparently can't think, crank and watch at the same time. So after I bought a 2" travel dial indicator it was time to put a warning light on ...

Re: Geometry Puzzle

Look around on the floor, you may have dropped the part covering the hole. :shock: The surface area of the two parts is still the same no matter how they are arranged. This is how all those funny plastic puzzles work wherein they only fit in the box in the proper orientation. Basically you have a 2 ...

Re: Solidworks question

Mr. Shields is right. You should open up a new SW model, set all the parameters in the options settings and then save the model as a template which will have the extension [prtdot] as in PART_3PLC.PRTDOT You can name it anything, but I prefer to let myself know that that template will have 3 plc dec...
