    Got this in my FacePalm feed. Pretty small but it'd be handy for some small jobs.
    A five-axis mill.

    Oil based coolant will leave a film which will stop it rusting for maybe a week (at my work anyway, we have lots of coolant in the air from the grinders which doesnt help) . Other then that rustilo is what you want, we just use some generic brand of it which does the job

    Some parts that i machined up at my last job, everything was done on a CNC lathe with live tooling. most parts where for plastic injection mould tooling, so attention to surface finishes and real tigh tolerances on part sizes

    You know your okuma's. Loved the IGA one step and 2 step programming. No Y axis, it would have been handy those particular times it was needed, but we just done that operation on a machining centre.

    Cheers,
    Just grabbed a 20L drum. Not cheap but if it does what they say it should be worth it.

    Not quite the same PE ratio, but he'd probably accept a reasonable offer. A guy on the northern beaches here was offering one of these toolroom mills for several years, which he probably still has, if you're keen for obsolete controls (grundig?) and could cough up for transport



    he was using it for surgical implants. From memory, poor man's 4th - universal table - you're the toolchanger and the enclosure is/was removed, so you wouldn't rust.....just get dermatitis!

    Had an interesting day yesterday. Air blast copper tube got jammed in the spindle during tool change so powered it down. Needless to say the old boy wasn't thrilled about spending an hour to reset the tool change mech. Anyways get that sorted then it throws errors saying spindle not indexing so won't complete a tool change. Do some investigating and spindle only has 30 deg rotation before hitting a mechanical stop. Gear changes okay so pull gearbox covers off and inspect. I found there was a 2 piece collar with a gear for the encoder on the main spindle shaft which was sitting about 40mm higher than it was supposed to be and the cap screws holding the 2 piece collar was fouling on the encoder gear. I figure that's weird something should be holding that collar to the shaft so look in the parts book and there is supposed to be a plate with 2 cap screws holding it on. Pull the encoder out and pull the collar apart and find the said cap screws were missing. Find some m6 x 15 cap screws and reassembled it all. Got it all up and running again but have no idea how it moved up or how long it's been like that. There were witness marks on the shaft from the encoder gear so it may have been like that for a while. Was thinking fark, lucky it did it during a tool change and not during milling.

    How big do you reckon it is?

    All academic really - I've got no 3 phase, 6ft ceiling limitation where I'd need to put it, and no cash to buy or transport...

    Probably 8' to the top of the head hydraulics, no travelling column though. To ensure a reasonable electronics supply, you'd probably have to buy a second one too!

    If the electronics took a dump I'd rebuild it with kit controllers - Know a guy in the UK who's done this a couple of times now...

    The next iteration of this caliper will be the final design what will be released to the market.
    The full range will be ready in 4-5 weeks

    These would also look good on the front of an xw
    xw Falcon 393 full race cam, NGK spark plugs.

    It has been a couple of months and the BryPar team is happy with the final designs of our brake calipers. There are some minor visual adjustments we will be making. Waiting on some CNC x-over pipes and we are ready for go.

    Input/thoughts on the designs/look would be great...
