Shop Talk!

General chit chat about the shop. Get a coffee and a smoke, then get back to work.

Redstar99 stopped by this evening and started the process of cleaning up the disaster I call a shop... I have this strange feeling he will be asking for some custom work in the near future

Maybe some pictures tomorrow.

No coffee and smokes for me either but I'll take a beer.

This might be a good place to trade tips , tricks and ideas on stuff.

I really like going thought other shop forum and go through the shop photos.
I like to see how others have there shop set up. Damn I got to clean mine so I can take some photos of it ....

Yep I hope we get a Shop Talk subforum for that reason exactly... we don't just talk about airsmithing/custom stuff, sometimes we wanna just talk about our shops! different machines, setups, tooling, work processes etc. Good to learn from your peers. and practicalmachinist just doesn't have all the great people we have here

speaking of photos, I just about done hooking up two new machines today (hardinge lathe and new compressor), new lighting next... then photo time!

and beer, more to come. I have come to realize it is not possible for me to work two full time shifts in a day and enjoy it without several brews throughout

I guess the best question I can think to ask, that would benefit me the most, is...

What CAM software are folks using, and what do they think of it for ease of use?

I am planning to invest in some software, but want something I don't have to fight with to get gcode out of... Specifically, I am looking for 3d and 4th axis capabilities.

for software i use hands left and right, they do a solid job of handling the hardware and a good job of bashing things when they misbehave i keep a small, messy shopspace/storage outside, and an even smaller shopspace/storage inside...

a corner of the outside:


little bit of the inside:
