Thats the problem Brian, I'm yet again making chips, but on another machine!   Damn customers won't leave me in peace!

Didn't get the turret refitted but I did get a chance to fite the new cabinet on the back of the machine.   Quite amazing the new one is 600x600x350mm the original had double doors and I swear two grown men coulda stood up in there!

Dennis. Yes I'm thankful just wish they were!   Most of my customers seem to suffer the same problem.  BAD PLANNING!!   Seems I forever doing 11th hour work.

It would  help if this machine was ruuning though.

It's been a long haul completely.   The irony is I bought the machine the same week my daughter was born, she was THREE in April LOL.

You are right about the 11th hour, they want it done yesterday!

There is a good example in a book called "How to win Friends and Influence People"  on how to get customers to get their planing done on time.

Wayne,
I may need you to do a bit of testing of threading with an encoder... Tell me when you are going to be about ready and I will start that project (I need a month to get time to start)

All

Sorry been just too busy lately, and also just had a few days away down in Cornwall with the family.  (Needed that little holiday though!)  While I was down there got to meet up with Mark Vaughan and his imfamous Avon CNC Mill!   Runs very nice it seems on the new drives and Pixies. 

Re Cubloc.  So far it's working great and one of the most useful Mach compatible devices out there.

Brian.   Sure thing, the Hardinge is back on now, after waiting for one part for months!   Contact me offlist if you wish.

BTW did you get hold of one of the Leadshine boards yet?

Wayne....
