Been a minute since I posted, but yoda that looks awful similar to the machine I just picked up. Mine is an IKX3, has an enclosure but currently off the machine as I am troubleshooting a z-axis servo issue, if anyone is an expert on these I'm happy to discuss my issues and hear any recommendations... Kind of just throwing parts at it until something sticks.



Yours looks real clean, I'm betting its a real nice machine to use.

Dang guys, looking good! Anyone close to looking for work? I don't have anything ready to go, but knowing that somebody here is looking for machines to be humming along would be good information.

Currently, I am looking to just catch up on projects owed... Then I think I will be changing business models to short term only projects.

Made my first chips on the CNC622 today - drew up a quick little test piece in Fusion to test how well it would do circular interpolation and angles, as well as to double check dimensions.

Features all came out about .002" - .003" oversized. Need to dial in whatever caused that, but very happy with how it came out and how smoothly it ran. The circular boss is a very consistent diameter, and the angled feature has pretty much the exact same surface finish as the rectangular part.

That is beautiful! I am having a similar issue, but I suspect that my .1875" cutter is a little smaller than that... I failed to measure it first

Had a bit of an issue last night in the shop...

I was working on some inserts and a very thick and long chip of brass was coming off the lathe. I was working on something else, waiting for the cut to complete. When I turned back to see where the cut was, the chip tangled around my right hand. I immediately hit the e-stop. Unfortunately, I had the chip jerk when the machine stopped...

Warning... mildly graphic pictures below. Nothing to cause anyone to lose their lunch, as these are post antibiotic and super glue... I was bleeding like mad, so pictures of the initial injury were less important than first aid.

I believe I need to relabel the med kit "In case of stupidity, open kit, use antibiotic and superglue to repair idiot marks on the human"

Proof of stupidity... (Yes, you can click on them to have a better look at just how dumb this is.




This morning, the cuts are all bruised and the one around the small finger is painful to move... No infection, as far as I can tell, but a bunch of blunt force trauma in addition to the cuts.

Nothing a little super glue can't fix... I wish the stupidity of the situation was easier to repair

The good news... three more people's projects have left the shop. Just have a load more work to do to catch up with the back log.

Super glad you escaped with your digits, Ty, that would royally suck.

I believe it was Doc Nickel that said something along the lines of not much scares me, but swarf on a lathe scares the crap out of me. Solid words of advice
