    It's classic bench racing, dman. For the gearheads out there, you can get just as much heat
    without light by popping up among the gearheads and asking Chevy or Ford? Big Block or Small
    Block?In the Ho...

    So he might be implementing something completely unnecessary by your definition. Your servo
    system already does exactly the same. By your misunderstanding of controls.I gave examples for
    the outer loo...

    ROFL, I like the heavy weight boxing analogy!:fan:We're down to "He's wrong" and "No, it's HIM
    that is wrong." That means it's time to call a halt, especially on this board that does such a
    good job o...

    MuellerNick, furious tap dancing and name calling doesn't change any reality.1. Smoothstepper
    moved the unreliable part (pulse generation) of Mach3 to hardware and did so cheaply. Could it
    have initia...

    MuellerNick, there is nothing false about it. With a hardware controller such as Smoothstepper,
    Mach can do the job reliably. In fact, there is evidence it'll be more reliable than LinuxCNC
    without ha...

    If you don't already know Linux, coming up to speed on it is very painful for most would be
    CNC'ers. They already have a steep enough learning curve, especially if they don't already have
    manual machi...

    For those who are interested, I just completed a poll on what the market share is for the
    various CNC Controllers. You can see it on my blog here:

    I am using SFM = 1,000 for carbide end mills in 7075. This produces a 30,000 RPM for a 1/8" EM.
    Using a light feed load/tooth of 0.000,6 creates feed rates of about 90 and 45 for 4 and 2
    flute cutters...

    No idea why the "other chaps" like the shrink fit. As for me, it's easy to do. The difference
    in size is about 4 tenths, which is what I wound up with while shooting for 5 tenths. That was
    easy enough...
