THE SCOOPS AHOY OF CNC MACHINING

Grimsmo's KERN will be used as a positional 3-axis for knife making at first, meaning he doesn't need crazy tool or gauge lengths--at least until he decides to get fancy.
IT'S A GRAVY SITUATION!

EARTH TO SMW!

Saunders and his team are back to Earth from visiting the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., where Adam Savage, Andrew Barth, and Jen Schachter assembled the Apollo 11 Hatch Door Replica for Project Egress.

3D Pit Stop
On the way back to Zanesville, SMW stopped at Xometry. Although they're primarily a software company, don't be fooled. They're all about lean manufacturing with some LEGIT 3D Printing machines. The next time you go to the break room and reach for a donut, it could be HP Polyjet tomfoolery.

Smart People....Smart People Everywhere!
At Autodesk Toronto, Grimsmo sees some familiar faces and picks some brains---smart brains.
Nothing beats getting to hang out with a new Robo drill and The True Croatian Sensation.

Haas releases their UMC-500!

With a base price of $121,000, you can be sure that all the bells and whistles will give you an amazing machine for under $200,000. While Saunders generally sticks to his debt-free preference, his experience with the benefits of 5-Axis machining make him slightly lean the other way (as long as the circumstances make sense, of course).


10 Top Notch Things About KERN

They can machine through a human hair but....the big question is: how do they set THAT up?
If you think about it...chances are, you'll be able to figure it out.

ADVICE FOR A BETTER WORLD
Do the best you can as much as you can.
What would happen if you had to visibly put your name on every part?


COOLANT SPILL. CHECK YO CANISTERS!
A clear filter canisters from McMaster bites the dust and Grimsmo's not the only one!
IF YOU HAVE THESE, MAKE SURE YOU REPLACE THEM!
