sum bitch! i didnt know there was such a thing!

I'm gonna have to do some shopping lol.

I love my kurt. especially the ability to whack out fixture jaws whenever I need them. Mind you that leads to an awful pile of fixture jaws to store

yea I know what you mean about this... try tightening up the screw in the back of the movable jaw (tightens it down to the screw) and smacking the part down more consistently. Stepped jaws should be able to produce very good flatness consistency, same as you'd expect from custom soft jaws and the like.

damn it just when I get a day to do some mill work guess what takes a crap. So now I have to tear into it and I have a list of while I'm at it things as long as my arm. I know it will be better when I'm done but I am not happy to have to spend money on this thing. And when its done and I'm still in maintenance mode I have been throwing around the idea of converting my lathe to cnc also the question is how far should I go. it would be a great help just to automate one axis to bore barrels but if I am going to do one axis I feel like I should just do it and go for a full conversion but thats a lot more money but I can be much more productive argh decisions decisions.

Kinda I think its actually the PC power supply but I have to disassemble the control cabnet to get to it. Plus since I dont use pc spindle speed control I am taking the time to clear out the cables to no where put labels on all the plugs and diagramming the wires. marking voltages, why they dont give you a manual with all that stuff I dont know but it makes trouble shooting a real pain. Also since all that stuff is off I am thinking about pulling the table apart and clearing out all the gunk in the ways re greasing the spindle and checking the bearings ya know all that pain in the *** stuff that needs done but you dont want to interrupt a production run to do it.

Oh forgot to ask does anyone have access to an EDM I need a 3/8" hole popped thru a MT5 dead center. I was able to flatten the nose (sparks are cool) but once I did that and saw how hard the center was I knew their was no way I was going to get a HSS drill thru it. I intentionally bought an import dead center hoping it was going to be case hard with a nice gooey core.
