  • Haimer 3-D Sensor

    I just received my Haimer 3-D Sensor. At just under 2lbs., it's a real work of art. Once you get it zeroed in, it's pretty easy to use. I find it a lot easier than my Starrett edge finder; although some of you with years of experiance may do just as well with the Starrett type (sorry I don't have the Starrett part number handy). It was a bit pricey, somewhere around $340.00 with shipping, but since I use the money I save by not suscribing to cable tv to buy tools, I don't feel too bad about blowing the dough on it. I'll send pics. when I get a computer that can handle photo shop, etc. Remember, it's tools or other stuff; guess which wins.

    Good for you. Who needs cable. You pay a big monthly fee for 2 watchable channels and 1/3rd of your time is wasted watching commericals to make the networks even more money. And thats assuming that there is actualy anything worth watching.. there usally isent.

      I used to watch the History Channel at a friends's house. One night we realized we'd watched an hour of show and had seed less than 15 minutes of content. I seems nowdays, most of what History C. broadcasts is recycled from previous shows.

        My 3D Taster is my most often used indicator, often a dozen times a day when I am doing short run work. I need to order another one so that I don't have to move the one between machines all the time. Congrats, I hope that you find it as useful as I do.

          I'm using my Haimer in the CNC lathe to determine the tool offsets.
          Haimer in the chuck and then you can adjust tool height, X and Z offsets.
          I once got that stupid idea that showed to work better than expected. Offsets are accurate to 0.01 mm.

            Mike, those three I found for $150 were a once in a lifetime deal. You'll have to pay full retail price for the next one

            Isn't that the price for the bare unit? I thought you have to buy the tips separately for ~ $50?

              The first tip should be included.

                  You talking about one of these? I just did a google search and copied the url of the pic. You don't need no stinking badges or computers to do that

                  It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                    A new Haimer 3D Sensor comes with 1 short tip included in the package and I think that the list price is $350, not including shipping.

                      Did the seller find a way to cut the price?
                      Mine came with a tip and I would be wondering a lot if the tip isn't factory installed. Quite useless!

                          So what do these items test for?? I see they are a taster so I suspect they must be used for testing for poisons in food, like the old food testers of years gone by..
                          Precision takes time.
