Re: CAD CAM software

It's very simple, have one computer running XP for your Rhino software, and your other computer running Win 10 for everything else. I have Mastercam V8.1 (2000 vintage) on an older machine running XP. You can get the older machines for next to nothing, or in my case it came from someones trash. It i...

Re: ASR Major Corporate Sponsorship Announcement

" All we ask is that you wear a mask when inside the roundhouse and are within 6' or less of other volunteers." Rob, so if there is no one else in the roundhouse or your 6'3" away from a volunteer you don't need a mask?? You need to change your wording/policy a little bit to protect everyone.....mas...

Re: Mill tooling

Re: Looking for D1-2 chucks for a Pratt a d Whitney 1689

Harold, when I first saw this post I thought the same thing, there is no D1-2 taper....but I too stand corrected. There is however something wrong with the chart attached above: http://qfguides.tripod.com/american_lathe_spindles_specific.htm The chart says the D1-3 taper "B" dia is 2.5", where it is...

Re: Woodinville Shops

Glenn, Keep a good eye on everything once you get the trolley on the rail and start using it. Being that the I beam is tapered as are the wheels, the weight will try to force the wheels away from the center of the beam. You may have to stiffen up the side plates. I also would advise a thick walled s...

Re: Packing gear cases with grease

My understanding is once the gear box heats up, the grease warms up and flows/ works it's way back into the gears. Overfilling the box with grease will actually cause the box to get to hot. I've been told that spindle bearings on Bridgeports, lathes, CNC machines, etc should not be more than 1/3 pac...
