Re: It's on it's way!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice job! Good to see more CNC equipment being used for this stuff.

I don't mean to be "know it all" but a few things I've learned regarding equipment like this.

Your floor is where good parts and long trouble free machine life begins.

I say min of 10" slab with 5/8 rebar on 6" center where the machine sits. If you have intentions of more than one machine like this have the slabs be monolithic and isolated from one another. less vibration transmitted through the floor when both machines are running and that means better surface finishes.

Clean stable power is a must! Get a voltage conditioner!

This may sound dumb, but it's true I promise. Avoid having florescent lights close to the control. I know they probably used one inside the machine but for some reason a florescent bulb gives off "something" that can (not always, but can) screw with a control.


These are lessons I've learned after over 15 years of playing with these things.

Last: Program it like ya' stole it!


Best of luck on your new machine!

I would imagine that your new toy has probably arrived by now, Nathan. I'll bet you are like a kid on Christmas morning! Glad to see that your business is flourishing. From my customer experience with you I can see why!

It is quite amusing to watch a grown man all giddy He's having so much fun figuring that thing out, that if he didn't get hungry, I don't think I would see him for a week!!!

Congrats Nate. I'm sure you'll find lots of jobs for it and production will go faster and easier once you get it all programed. There's nothing cheap about stepping up to cnc but you'll make up for that in speed. I've got a Hardinge cnc lathe for my reloading parts I make. I took a 20 min part to make down to 3 min 17 sec on my cnc and the quality is better. Good luck with you new toy.
