Machinists have a number of variables to consider when setting up workholding devices for a machining operation. There are some major differences between holding a duplicate part with loose tolerances with a 10-minute cycle time, and a specialized piece with tight tolerances that has a 10-hour cycle time.

OP1 and OP2 happening side by side, making some very nice looking parts ..... got a pile of stock to get through so i can change it up to the next part on the schedule 🤘 ...... could use a robot loader or a nice big horizontal to make these unattended.... but right now, I am the robot 😂

Sometimes I do dumb things. Sometimes that means breakage. And sometimes a body part gets in the way. 😖 Luckily no breaks or fractures, just a busted collet and some jagged gouges on my finger. Didnt even hurt the tap. The last pic is 5 days post incident. Table was moving and I tried to remove the tool, and got my finger pinched between the workstop and tap. Apparently my finger is tough! Keep your fingers safe, kids!
CNC turning for the first time ever! Fusion 360 made this a breeze. Now to write the postprocessor so my live tools and subspindle work. Running nice and slow while I get used to this thing, then I'll get it cranked up to proper speeds and feeds.
Wait till the end! A fun time lapse on the laser machine for our furry friend Fynn👆🏼Make sure you watch till the end! Custom image etched on a Western Maple block. Optimal images for laser etching are well lit, high contrast and high resolution- Contact us via direct message if you’d like to have an image etched or engraved. We’d be happy to bring your idea to life💯 Tag a dog lover in the comments below👇🏼 @saveourscruff @bcspca @fetch_and_releash @dogsofinstagram @trotec.canada @jacktait @barkbox @barkcommunity 💯
