Very funny Brent. What's wrong with a TI89? I could never get the hang of RPN.

Nice rifle Chad. Great looking calculator.

Re: Final assembly.

I can't use 99% of the functions on that thing. I bought it for the big screen so I can use it as a "note book" when I'm sorting out CNC code or to record offsets, etc.

quicker for me than lugging a pad of paper around all day.

Thanks for the kind words.

Making guard screws today. JESUS what a crap day. I was proofing the program and topping off my coolant tanks at the same time.

Forgot to shut the hose off and now I have my own little version of NewOrleans on the shop floor.

What &^*)#@! mess!!

Re: Final assembly.

Absolutely nothing wrong with TI's. The TI92 I was really impressed with to be truthful. Had it's own derive program on it. The HP's equation solver was a pain to use. Most of the time I would walk into the computer lab and use derive. Ahhhh, the good old days when I got to solve complex equations and apply myself. Now all I do is some basic math to make sure we aren't over on our lbs/8ms delay and time out a few sequence patterns. Oh well what ever keeps me getting to build rifles I guess.

HP32SII all the way. If I need multiple lines that's what computers are for.
