Word of the day:
In other words, Saunders has his 5-axis Haas machine, and he’s spending some time lately getting to know it and CAMplete. He talks about his 5-axis starter kit, and moving up to technology that seemed almost unreachable before.
AND it’s helping Grimsmo thaw to the idea of learning more about 5-axis machines himself.
Becoming Swissish ROUND 2!
Grimsmo talks about his trip to Elliott Matsuura to check out some Swiss Lathes (one of which might just be purchased by the next podcast episode)
It's all about design, baby
The Johns discuss which design programs they use for their machines, and which ones to use with Swiss Lathes.
Bonus at Matsuura:
THEY HAD A ROUGHNESS TESTER! While Grimsmo visits, he gets to check out the roughness of his blades and handles. In this episode he lets us know the EXACT measurements.
Grimsmo bought an Ultrasonic Cleaner, and Skye approves.
“I wash the parts with water afterwards, and they’re cleaner than I could have gotten them before [having the Ultrasonic]” - Skye
Want to learn more about different kinds of cleaners? Saunders mentions this Wikipedia article as a great resource:
The Johns finish off this episode with talk of other cleaning supplies, cleaning methods, and a couple more notes on Swiss Lathes. Stay tuned.
