im sure they do, but I dont believe they are for continuous motion cutting
they are not, like i said twice
they only moved the head
oh , im very sorry for not having paid attention, my bad
hmm im looking for boring mills these days... you know of any GOOD ones ultraprecision..
thiking about who these 2 dj's were that put that composition together
I can see them in my mind, one is asian, the other is some white guy, and they are just tearing it up
maybe it was a link I followed on myspace, dangit I cant remember, probably youtube
sry gezr, dunno
DMG has a P-type machine that sorta makes it look like thats whats happening.. but it is full contouring head rotation... NOT a rail..
motorcycle parts tommorow, integration by parts due tommorow,
dmess: not contouring
it has only two positions, up and down.
the control issued an axis unclamp when it moved
it was old looking, that was for sure
maybe some of their old stuff.. i dunno..
dunno, i'd give more detail if i had any =(
just saw a picture and heard some stories is all
[00:05:03] <dmess> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPCrTYwp2UY&NR=1
haha i saw that link yesterday, that machine is so hot
don't you have a couple?
they have a nice head control
no i have WFL mill-turn's
mill turn is so neat =(
we run a 68 hr cycle on one of or parts on them
mill here and there.. turn some... mill some more to make clearance,,, then turn some more... etc.
"see you in three days"
finish mill all the chamfers and rads...
sigh, dmess how is the hobbing operations going?
when it works its sweet... hen the machine goes down for 1-2 weeks we feel the hit
i doubt ill find the song im after :(
i dont think it started today as planned... but i will keep you aprised.
whats its name the song gezr
ide like a video if you can make a very short one
I dont know the name of the song, its more or less the base line, I heard another song, that used it as a sample, and i want to hear the other version by the 2 dj'
never gonna happen... v22 nose landing gear..
if you cant tape some, thats cool, it may be a protected part
ah, yeah, okay, then no big deal
that all probably need to know, I dont need to know
let me see if I can find the song I heard, maybe it ill help me remember
unless i find some to put in our capabilities section of the site... lemme work on it
no, its no big deal, dont get in trouble, Ive seen all sorts of gears being cut
my initials are on 95% of every disaster/distressed part that has left that building in the last 3 yrs... and all the parts were saved... 8-)
dmess you have an updated realplayer installed?
trouble finds ME for a blessing
oh heck I dont think this remix is the right bass line in it anyway
VLM is pretty versatile
yeah it looks that way
a lot of sheet to break down though
sigh, I cant find that track
what sort of musac is it??
[00:33:25] <dmess> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb9GUoiT3ts&NR=1
whooo hooo found it
just love the drum sample they used
[00:34:09] <gezr> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkyhqE_VOEE&feature=related
I cant belive i found that
and yeah, since I can't stand whats on the radio, I listen to techo for hours, or classical guitar, or classical
if you find an mp3 send it... we could ski to this...
oh, hehehehe, you need jump techno for sking
naw i can ski into anything
and jump off most things on a wish and a prayer....:-D
[00:39:22] <gezr> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kL8xmHotu0
its really neat stuff
scooter and few other groups are making that bouncy stuff
lose about a pound a month moving around to that stuff if you like it.
i can lose 3 lbs per hot yoga session... and i was doing 3 a week.. ;)
I need to do something, im probably 15lbs over ideal right now
and the babes are HOT.....
1 week at Rays... its gone
Im not doing the warrior, or the naked eagle or the twisted snake or any of that
if I have to twist that much, then something is wrong withme
nor do i... its just a good HOT workout that sweats the water & toxins outta you..
hahahaha, ive been getting a workout lately at home each day, no scale so I dont know
I should mount some sort of boxing glove to the shaper's working end,and see how long I can box with it
a real manual machine
you mean go toe to toe with a 25" chuck?
dont think... JUST DO IT... as a friend says...
and cranking on a big machine isnt as cool as the videos look, thats after a few hours of work getting thepiece mounted
yes... thats what the night shift is for... ; )
gezr.... what do you call a big machine??
as far as the 25" chuck ... no guts ... no glory.... grow some balls... learn it and MAKE it do what you want
dmess: oh, 30"swing, 20food bed
swing is a little small... as far as im concerned
for a lathe, 3x18meter mill
no that 1M x 4-5M at best
maybe I mean 6meter long
no, they get much larger
we need to buy swing bcz we need the max y-axis travel available
I can imagine
and the material takes its toll on the machine too...
[00:59:17] <gezr> http://www.monarchmt.com/gmcu.htm
there was a 30 foot y axis boring mill on machinetools.com
that's one tall boring mill
not that i know much about them, just seems to be rather large.

hey, anyone know how to unstick an x2 drawbar? it's a new mill, want to make sure i'm not doing it wrong...
(if there's a more appropriate channel, please point me towards it)
is the drawbar or collet stuck?
it's a drill chuck, the drawbar comes right out, but i should be hammering the drawbar to loosen the chuck, right?
is it a morse taper spindle?
morse locks itself in place. you are right that you will have to tap it to get it out.
i've been whacking it pretty hard... loosened the drawbar a bit a whacking the top of it
you should loosen the drawbar only a bit, so the threads still have good engagement. then tap the drawbar gently with a dead blow hammer.
how heavy is a dead blow hammer, i actually don't have a hammer, so been using the bigass wrench for loosening the alignment nut
hmm, is it possible you had it way too tight? are you new at operating this machine or are you experienced and this is a new problem?
it's a brand new machine, came with teh drill chuck installed
oh I see
wanted to stick a collet in there instead
reluctant to hit it too hard
but not going too softly on it either
your wrench is probably a bad substitute for a hammer, and it was also maybe installed too tight
can i maybe get it off by leaveraging between the bottom of the spindle and the top of the drawbar with a big vise?
no, don't destroy anything, get the right tools instead
ok, you reckon it's just the weight of the hammer?
I know (from experience, haha) that wrenches make bad hammers.
i'll pick something up, i have no intention of destroying anything ;)
ok, i'll take your word for it. thanks man
hope you get it.
me too, desperate to get a few end mills in it
look for a dead blow hammer. they have lead shot in the head so they don't bounce. you will also use it when mounting work in a vise.
and i'll be back in here whenever i get it converted to cnc
for this small mill you should probably get the lightest one you can find
still, that looks like a pretty wimpy hammer: http://www.mini-lathe.com/Mini_mill/Features/features.htm#Collets
I bet it's super easy to overtighten morse + drawbar
From a few days back "(6:19:50 PM) jmkasunich: 5-axis question: if I am at x0y0z0b0c0, and I issue G1x1b36000, will emc turn b around 100 times, or will it decide it is smarter than me and only do a single turn?" This depends on which is active G90 | G91
in emc, b will turn 100 times regardless of g90/g91
because of starting at b0
but I didn't read back :-)
I didn't read back to see any context, I only saw SkullWorks's paste right now
I was wondering about multi-turn moves - I really meant to say C, not B
sure, same answer
yeah, it got answered a couple days ago
thats why I questioned SkullWorks_PGAB answer
with W set so the controlled point is up the tool a bit, seems like you could cut a sphere-like thing with one move with B+C
thats what I did
actually, I used U and W
did you see the rendering?
yes, that's very cool
got the Y axis homing to a simulated switch
I'm gonna put switches on all axes of the model
(not parport pin limited, and its easy to mount virtual switches)
do the max kins care about Z? or is the only requirement that XY=0 is when the center of the rotary is under the center of the tool
I guess B=0 means tool vertical is also important
c=0 means you know which way x,y are on the table
head up/down doesn't matter
"Exceeded soft limit" doesn't say which one
JMK - I stated that because in many machines in G90 a rotary axis is 0-360 (and at 360 displays as 0.0000)
and therefore would cause an alarm in G90 put work just fine in G91.
Also strange movements (Code done by someone else in MC) - in G40 G90 A(4th axis) would move shortest path, but G91 A(signed value) moved as expected.
[05:30:39] <K`zan> http://wrlabs.shacknet.nu/~vw/MyMachineShop/PipeDreamMill/PDM-060408/
Reworked Z a bit, gets it within a few thousandths and my 1F cap :).
omg wai do you need a 1F cap
renesis: Reach for that screwdriver on the bench I DARE YOU!
Because I can :). Always wanted one and got it for $3 at the thrift store :-).
omg scary cap
Runs a led for about an hour.
jymmmemc: i dont need a screwdriver with a cap stuck to it!
I stand by what I said... wuss
yeah i was gonna say nice deadbug
I found out what it was for - for the assholes with the car stereos you can hear a mile away - their lights dim on the bass passages without one of these...
but i think you twisted it =(
Yep, just wanted to see how long it would run, not for NASA :).
they could prob get a better alternator for not much more $$$
Nah, they can put that money into a 10KW amp...
a) 10KW != $100
b) 10KW does not belong in a car
* K`zan real tired of hearing bass and never seeing the car.
We are in complete agreement Sir.
dB draggin is for lames
what I hate is getting next to the bass and hearing crap mids and highs
i need to build an smps for some nice car AB amps
haha yeah rly
Someplace, I forget where, got tired of passing out tickets for too loud car stereos and passed a law where they can confenscate(sp?) the card and crush it. Wish they would do that here.
whatever i dont mind
my biggest issue is its always lame hiphop bass
I like my music, not thiers at a half mile.
Nah, I'd love to have like 10KW with a system that has special mic's setup to counter their system
like, omg monsynth
you need hear someone working a sub out with some jungle distort bass
RPGs were made for just this kind of problem :).
im going to build a massive mecha dub system
Sigh, dxf2gcode docs are only German :-(.
like 60ft robots with massive bass drivers
with little doors to cover the bass drivers
Backto xfig with gcode export or mach3 under wincrap, sigh....
to protect the speakers when they gotta blow stuff up to protect little dancer people
I was right. The easy part is the hardware....
ph33r teh dub mecha
Or oops or something...
Got to come up with a better method of fastening stuff to the table. Double sticky is less than optimal...
use clamps and vises like a real machinist person?
tapped 123 blocks, 3/8" cap screws, spherical washers, and step block clamps work nice
renesis: Not likely with this little joke...
I just added changing software limit in runtime int emcmodule.cc
It works fine
no abort is nessesary
just must sync it with preview and so on
we must have this functionality becouse of dynamic change of Y functionality
in one program it will be rotary axis
else it will be long linear
well.. it's probably easier then chaning configurations
alex_joni: changing axes will be in runtime without reload emc
we can do that now
only limitation was axis
I guess it was a problem with autothingy and 6.06 on the sheetcam install ...
BigJohnT: might be
I'm off to germany for a couple of days.. but maybe it would be nice to make a deb for it..
I saw on the mail list where Les was having problems with the autothingy
what is a deb?
debian based distros
BigJohnT: the packages you install on 6.06 usually ;)
with sheetcam being a commerical product I guess that makes linux a pain to deal with...
could you have a commerical product and still use the synaptic package manager somehow?
sure.. but you have to build deb packages for that
and put them in a repository somewhere
and probably do it for ubuntu (each version), and debian
and then for SuSE and RedHat and FC you need to build rpm's
they use a different packaging method
then for slackware you need something else
and for gentoo yet another thing
see it get complicated
and there are probably a lot of other alternatives I don't know ;)
supporting _all_ those targets is a pain
but that's what autopackage tries to overcome..
(when it works..)
would not 99% be using ubuntu as they are running EMC too?
if they use sheetcam + emc
but you can't make that assumption (from sheetcam's point of view)
I don't think he targets sheetcam on linux _only_ at emc2 users..
btw.. older users of EMC don't use Ubuntu..
some use debian (BDI)
others use older installs (Redhat and Morphix based)
if it ain't broke don't fix it...
this is exactly the reason why we chose a platform and try to stick with it
if someone from the comunity wants to support something else, we are happy to include that
but doing it ourselves is too much trouble
autopackages web site is even broken ...
I never got EMC to work till the live CD came out and I tried many times in the years past
I was so happy when the live cd booted up I started designing my plasma cutter the next day :)
alex_joni: what part of Germany are you going to?
[11:00:32] <alex_joni> http://www.automatica-muenchen.de/
cool, an automation trade fair
are you going to be an exibitor?
a bit ;)
didnt a big fair just end in the hannover messe?
sendo: yup.. different one though
BigJohnT: there's a european project I was working on that gets shown at automatica
yeah i was supposed to go there
and the robot company we work with also has a booth
but I'll only visit during the setup phase, and a day when it starts
well.. see you guys later ;)
ok have a safe trip
has anybody worked with GCAM?
the GM volt eh? looks a bit heavy for an electric. but I guess 40mile/charge is enough
why Volt, when you can Tesla? http://www.teslamotors.com/
hmm want one
I cant afford an electric vehical
* Jymm hands SWPadnos the grounding rod
oh come on, they're only $109k
and the 5 year note on that is what 2.5k/month?
well, you'd have to do a European-style car loan, 30 years
Ican hire a team of men to pull me around in a rickshaw for less then that i bet
but it would likely last that long, it's just a motor and some batteries
in Bangkok, sure, but what about poor New Yorkers who can't get a rickshaw?
they cant get an electric car either, is my point
well, New Yorkers can - they just have to skip one mortgage/rent payment
maybe if they were modular, like you drive home, when you get home, the motor slides out, and into a cradel that lets the motor power your washer/dryer/air moving unit. while the batteries rechage
but making a 1.5ton electric car isnt what we need
I was wondering the other day why I needed a 3000 lb truck to haul 200 lbs around...
* BigJohnT needs to get busy on my electric motorcycle
its really simple, if were really wanting to be more ecologicaly friendly, then we need to modify our street/highway system, seperate freight, and commuter
if ups can ship stuff over night, then the B&B railroad can surely do it in 2 days
dealing with the RR is the biggest PIA I ever had
thats what im saying, our freight system is a joke
instead of being easy to ship they make it as difficult as possible
bingo, another problem discovered
but the government and the union say it has to be that way with the RR
do you think that an indy car driver would want to enter his little bittie car in a nascar race?
hell no he wouldnt, sure his car is safe, but in the event he hits a nascar semi out there, he is a gonner
thats all im saying really, our rail system is underused cause it sucks, too many semis on the road doing long haul, in fact too many huge semi's doing short hall too
you guys know what im talking aobut, semi pulls up to unload, he opens the door to the triler, and there is maybe 10k lbs in it
do those trucks burn more fuel if they are pulling 60k then when pulling 10k?
I may seem anti trucker, but im not, its a job for a lot of people, but I just think the methods their employers use are stoopid
well there are two classes of truck freight LTL and Full Truck Load. If you the shipper wants/needs to ship one pallet you have to use LTL...
yeah I know, but why cant a smaller truck be used to pick that pallet up, and taken to the distribution center, instead of using a full truck to do the exact same thing
jb hunt, saia, usfreight, calark, the list goes on and on, of compaines that will send an empty trailer to pick up one pallet, just to bring it back to the distro house to be put into another truck for transit
just depends on where you live. In the case of here LTL's don't just come to Poplar Bluff to pick up they make a swing through many towns to fill the trailer then it goes back to the big city
yeah, thats how it is a lot of the time, but in some cases its not
its all a matter of the routing
and who you pick depends on their price that day
it's all about price
I have to go to class now
I dont like the volt is all
too many old things to change i guess
what is a volt
the new electric car from gm
Oh Boy it's time to pay quarterly taxes
imho it's actually very simple, Do you want electric cars that run directly off the mains, at speeds around 300km/h (190mhp), are auto steering and can haul as much cargo as you want
BigJohnT: hey :)
Rugludallur, sounds like the ICE trains :)
High speed trains make a whole lot of sense in my mind
no, I just want to haul my fat butt back and forth from my fab shop to my machine shop
put your two shops next to each other, and walk your fat butt between them ;)
so mixed zoning is the solution :)
* archivist starts new company fat butt haulage corp
Rugludallur, over here they are busy seperating the old mixed zones
archivist: same here, I live in an area they designated as industrial, effectively i'm not allowed to reside at this address :P
SWPadnos: then I would not have a fatt butt if I walked
hmmm. that is a problem
well, you could eat more
now your talking
hmm a segway might help
Rugludallur: I live in the woods and there is no regulations
if the neighbors shoot at you you shoot back :)
BigJohnT: Sounds like the kind of place I would like to get, I just need to find a way to quit my dayjob so I don't have to commute
BigJohnT: the only difference is that we don't have trees, so it's just out in the open
right now you can't see 50' through the woods it is so green
well I have to reboot this windows machine... or as GM said if they designed cars like microsoft you would have to press the start to stop it...
you can use alt-F4 too, I think
SWPadnos: that is one of my favorite key combinations
be back in a bit
could be surprising if there's no application focused and you get a prompt ro reboot/restart/etc :)
tomp2: I now have like 0.002mm of slop in the Z axis
is that spring or slop
how do you measure that small? thats like 0.0000787"
the linear scales on the machine claims it to be that small
archivist: I dont know.. it's probably pitch inaccuracy of the screw
1um scales, time for a laser qualification! ( got 6 machines doing that now :)
2U is the absolute limit of my measuring here
I cut a circle and my digital caliper said 70.00
any difference in surface finishes ( in an X move )?
yeah all surface finishes looks alot smoother
I've just been cutting plastic today
great, thats a beauty of a machine tool
still the surfaces with the ball endmill dont end up as ~
* anonimasu nods
now I might finally stop having a pain with aluminium
tomp2: laser calibration -_- sounds expensive
we need an open sauce home brew laser method
hm, anyone got any neat tricks to make your own V bits?
for like engraving
hmm so I need to design a 10$ interferometer now ?
I grind up engraving bits here, not too hard
no coordinate tables or fancy stuff involved..
on a tool grinder but hand rotated
all guessed setup
on an approx 1920's (or earlier) tool and cutter grinder belt driven with hand movements
quality of finish is related to how the grinding wheel is dressed with a diamond
we dont allow any health and safety inspectors in here
I have a drill bit grinder
like a fairly big one :)
dress the wheel slowly with the diamond held in a traversing device
mount cutter in collet and remove 50% like a D bit
still not nice to get hss too hot
I dont have a collet to mount it in
use some bubble gum
chill with liquid nitrogen
heh, not on the grinder
oh come on, you dont have any crappy drill chucks?
Yes, but I have no clue how to make them mount into the grinder
grind the 45/60 degree ish
I've got a valve grinder that might be useable for it
with coller and powered rotation
then for the final gring dont go all the way rount so the is relief
you dont grind it eccentric?
then for the final grind dont go all the way round so there is relief
got any picture of what you mean?
not at the moment
can you make ascii art of it?
anonimasu: the wheel is round, so you will be making a curved concave surface as you grind away
I need to do a sequence of pics in the bowels of this place
so, the cutter lip will stick out a bit above the rest of the cone surface
[16:29:04] <anonimasu> http://www.yldor.cn/upImgFile/2008222153438J3.2001_0559.jpg
fenn not if presented to the wheel correctly
archivist: i thought making the lip stick out was the whole point
yes but no concave grinding needed
I actually use a cup wheel
seems like it should work either way
but side of a normal wheel will do
yes can be a small amount concave (will be miniscule)
as one tilts the cutter about 7-12 degrees to start on the last cut
we tend to make blunter stronger cutters than that pic
we cut out brass sheet with an engraving machine
* anonimasu nods
I think I'll just copy thoose bits
ours are tapered shank to suit the machine
who here was talking about gear grinding?
err gear hobbing I think
I was a while ago.
oh, archivist too
tey seem to do profile grinding of teeth instead of hobbing
Anyone around with experience resurfacing auto flywheels?
im pondering making some delerin gears
but im not sure how to grind the cutter
anyone machined Teflon? are there any special tricks?
YES did some today
and slow rpm and fast feeds
to add to what anonimasu said
hehe, plastic is fun
if you fuckup it foams up and gets all into the flutes then hardens
anonimasu: this may be of interest http://www.mec.ugal.ro/Anale/TCM/2006/L19%20-%20Annale%20UDJG%202006%20Fascicula%20V.pdf
renesis_: going a bit fast I bet to get to that stage
use baby oil!
acrylic chips in babyoil is awesome
looks like you put ice slushee all over the mill
I've heard some platic machines better when you put it into the freezer
yeah because you get kinda a headstart on keeping it cool
and more solid
yeh, so it chips instead of rips
anonimasu: superglue for holding the teflon
same as super sharp tools
plastic is fun
and it seems like some places age teflon for getting tolerances right
some plastics need to be heat treated for best cutting...
delrin is easy tho
i do that shit dry, fast, never had problems
* BigJohnT likes delrin
is like godplastic
same with me
delerin is nice :)
i love getting blocks of it and banging it on my head
its like light marble!
not like 100lb blocks!
like 6x6x.5 or something
omg 100lbs of delrin would be so awesome
this is a part I make on the side in delrin http://suburb.semo.net/jet1024/Rotating%20Racking%20Arm.htm
I have some 3m bars of delerin
well, about 1.5m left of them
they are damn heavy
SkinnYPup: I think that's overkill for me :p
SkinnYPup: I want some quick and dirty delerin gears
anonimasu: Know the feeling. I would like a quick dirty way to make single point involute cutters from lathe tool blanks.
I wonder if I should cut a profile on the nc mill and use as guide when sharpening the cutter
SkinnYPup: bench grinder?
how quick and dirty can it be
but im not sure im op to the task..
* anonimasu dosent want any involute crap or anything
seems like making a hob is almost as easy, and you get a more accurate gear in the end
hm, I were thinking of grinding a single tooth cutter
err single point
single point cutter would have an involute curve on it
it would be interesting to 'hob' a gear using a single tooth cutter with a straight triangle shape
well, that was the thought I had..
you could do it with cnc, advancing by one gear tooth each rotation, and then repeating the cut at a different Y axis position (or whatver axis it is)
so as to pretend you're using a rack cutter
I dont have a rotary table on the big mill
so it'd have to be made by hand
oh i see, the gear bootstrapping problem
hehe, I have a rotary table though
a manual one without divider attachment
I should do it tomorrow
acemi_ is now known as acemi__
fenn yeah been there with the bench grinder, but it leaves a little more to be desired in profile uniformness
acemi__ is now known as acemi_
acemi_ is now known as acemi__
acemi__ is now known as acemi_
I think I'll cut a profile guide on the mill at work
then grind the profile after that..
anonimasu: this guy seems to have a decent method by spacing the hob teeth RACK distance apart, theres 4 parts to this on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMS2un-kbg0
Yeah looks simple enough using a 40 deg tool for a 20 deg pressure angle
im not sure how the tools have to look
[19:26:37] <anonimasu> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fps0OR1eF_s&NR=1
I could turn thoose tools, by hand..
actually I could grind them if my bench grinder wheel werent like \
anonimasu: No problem... just tilt the whole grinder about /
anonimasu: Then it'll be |
oh I have a new grinder but the wheen is ~
Jymm: I cant grind a straight edge no matter what I do today
better quit before I grind a arm off.
better stop while im still ahead
now how the hell do you calculate the divsion for gear tooth?
like how many degrees you need to divide them to get the correct width of the teeth
circumfence / tooth width*2?
for the gear hob or the gear?
the gear is going to be the 360/ number of teeth
Yes, I know
then I don't understand the question
but the division.. is what im wondering about.
if my cutouts are 2mm wide at the top
and I want to calculate the spacing of them on my gear
do you understand the problem?
I drew a tooth in my cad program
and I want to know how to space it on my gear to make the tooth as wide in the top as in the bottom
oh, your wanting to know the profile of a tooth?
No, I want to know what kind of spacing I need for my cutouts to make the tooth profiles match
the tooth profile is based on the rack cutter profile, which usually has equal width teeth and not-teeth
ffs. do you not read the question?
I'm drawing a gear in my cad program and the thing im asking is how I do calculate the spacing I need to get my tooth profiles mesh properly
if you have a tooth already that you're happy with, just make a circle of radius (width of tooth*num teeth)/2pi
the mesh distance is where the pitch circles touch
He wants to know how to calculate the dimensions, etc toso that n number of teeth will fit a certain diameter gesr (iiuc)
ok if gear diameter = d, then tooth width = pi*d/n
* BigJohnT looks in his Machinery's Handbook
maybe I should open mine ^^
that's measuring d at the base of the tooth i think
depending on how you measure the tooth
See, I understood what he wanted the first time he asked, but had nfc what the answer was. No ho wy'all were to understnad my fscking typos yet not under his question is beyond me
wtf is a 'cutout'?
it's something you cut away
anonimasu: all the formulas are in the machinery handbook and there is a bunch of them...
yeah.. I know, just didnt occur to me to look inside of it :p
I'm looking at mine and it made me start drinking
it doesnt take much does it
any excuse is a good one
why do you need a excuse?
I don't really need one
I were just kidding
here is how you zip tie a $800 machine torch to a cnc plasma table http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?p=460166#post460166
BigJohnT: do you think a plasma cut gear rack would be usable for anything?
yes if it is done with hi dev plasma
we had flame cut gears on jackup oil rigs to lift the rig out of the water
waterjet rocks for making gears ^^
I've just seen some cut by waterjet
it was awesome
for something small I'd just machine it on the mill with a cutter
the ones I saw were in stainless
very very intricate
ok, I've slammed mach for the last time today on cnc time to go home :)
talk to you guys later
