  • Karma got me!

    A few days ago, I called out Sir John when it took his granddaughter to point out to him that the plastic parts he cut with his laser didn't fit tightly because he didn't take into account the width of the beam.

    I, on the other hand, am much more diligent than that. The acrylic pieces I cut out Saturday with my cnc router all came out too big, because I took into account the entire width of the end mill, instead of just half.

    Go ahead. Say it. I can take it.

    The fellow who has not made a few mistakes or miscalculations probably has not worked fast enough or often enough to be a serious contender in the productivity department. Regards David ( just lost a few thous again) Powell.

            Puts you in good company. When the Hubble telescope was first launched they discovered the mirror was off by the diameter of the sphere on the measuring probe.

                I very, very, very rarely make a mistake.

                OTOH I spend a 'lot' of time 'modifying' parts

                  Better too big than too small. It's a lot easier to take material off than to put it back on.

                  Today while cutting a keyway the darned end mill slipped in the holder because I hadn't tightened the set screw properly. I had to resort to making up a tapered key to account for my inattention.
                  The way I look at it, instead of a screw-up, it is now a feature, as the key will be hard pressed to walk out on it's own now that it's tapered.

                        I think fixing your own is easy. Fixing others boo-boos is where the fun begins.
