MAXNC 10 speeds and feeds question

I have a maxnc 10 I bought used and then had upgraded by the manufacture. You can see a picture of one here https://c1.staticflickr.com/7/6240/6259602241_97c65915c9_b.jpg .

Re: cad drawing of a 1" scale tie?

Are those dimensions for 1.5" scale? If so, what would the dimensions be for 1" scale?
Thank you!

Thank you for the thought Adirondack, but I really sort of like not having advertisements on the pages.

Re: Milling a helix

This looks really really cool.

Re: Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Water Putty!
Wow, I wonder if it can take the heat ? ZA-8 I think requires 750 degrees.

Or could the water be baked out of it before trying it?

Re: 3d printed parts

Are you asking about 3d printed patterns for casting bronze or is there a process people are doing and printing bronze directly?
Thank you.

Re: Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Thank you! Oxidizing the aluminum seems like an interesting idea. One of my friends needs some journal boxes.

Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Would it be possible do you think to use aluminum for a mold to cast ZA-8?
The melting temps are 2 or 3 hundred degrees apart.

Or would the ZA-8 bond to the aluminum like that aluminum solder we see sold on late night TV??

Thank you,
