    1. We actually make critical components for big pew-pews that protect us.

    2. Big pews huh

      Makes me think of that Johnny Cash song “One piece at a time”

    3. You mean, you supply the enemy who is just now working on a big gun control bill, to be enforced by the very items you're making? I'm sure you don't think of them as, or want them to be, the enemy. But that's just magical thinking, it's not reality.

    5. Actually you’re both wrong. We make Components that are used it in various configurations in our fighter planes.

  3. I used to work at a company that had five five axis machining centers and two lathes that had limited mill capabilities in addition to a half dozen other standard CNC lathes and mills. As an office worker, I was continuously amazed at the things that those machines could make out of bar, plate and castings in steel, aluminum and brass. The machine shop was not a contract shop. It was dedicated to producing parts for products manufactured in house.

    I read the sales blurb at the manufacturer's site. From the description, I'm thinking that you must be machining large steel parts that require high precision tolerances.

    Have fun. That is a serious machine tool.

  7. "I Remember....." when the early NC machines read their programming instructions from punched tape. Except for it being plastic tape instead of paper tape, it was identical to the punched tape they used for Teletype machines; used the same 5-bit "Baudot" code.

    1. I do too, you and I could probably swap horror stories involving keeping the early CNC machines running.

      Nowadays all I play with is a 3018 running GRBL - I use it for woodworking and making metal/plastic parts.

  8. Shiny!
    When I worked in the machine shop, I'd have loved to play with that.
    For my part, I'm now in calibration, & found out today they're getting us a Pratt & Whitney 504: I'll be able to measure the dimensions of the parts you make put to six decimal places.

  9. As a maintenance electrician I work with COMAU CNCs. Fine machines for engine blocks and heads. Amazing what these things can do.
