    Re: BOY 15 Injection Molding Machine Manual

    I just scanned my manual. I broke it into four pieces and total is about 20 megs so can't upload it here. If someone has an account on one of the file share sites where you can put it somewhere and...

    Re: Mold base

    Thanks Doug. This will be an interesting learning experience. Hard to even know the right questions to ask until I get into it and get my hands dirty.

    Re: Mold base

    Thanks Doug.

    I assume it would be the U frame bases I want?

    I was also looking at the F.I.T.S. aluminum frames from PCS. Can you comment on them vs. the MUD frames?

    For small parts what...

    Mold base

    I have a Boy 15S injection molding machine that I have not used yet. Since I will only be using it for short runs of relatively small parts I need an economical way to make aluminum molds that are...

    Re: PathPilot 2.x and PathPilot Simulator

    A company that sees you are working on improvements to their product and instead of shunning you they invite you to participate and help them improve. Good to see. Three cheers for Tormach.

    Re: CO2 Laser absorbing paint???

    Blackened, I don't think it is withstanding the laser is what is needed. If it is a material that absorbs the wavelength of the laser it will vaporize, burn, or at least get very hot. What is...

    Re: CO2 Laser absorbing paint???

    I think most paints will absorb laser, hence be burned away. I used a blue engine enamel from a spray can once as a solder resist and removed with my laser. The harder part will be finding the...

    Not sure how anyone else can tell you what you need. I would think you would know best what you need based on what you are doing.

  12. Re: Inexpensive TTS ER20 Collet Chucks Still Available?

    I just got the ones I ordered a few days ago. Some of them have the cone on the end and the groove for ATC and some don't. The low cost ER collet holders from Ebay I recently got don't have the...

    Re: PathPilot 2.x and PathPilot Simulator

    I don't remember the version number, but I just got a PP upgrade kit a few weeks ago and it was three or four versions old.

    CNC tool carts

    I would like to make a tool cart for my TTS tool holders. There are a lot of nice trays, etc. that can go on the Tormach machines, but I think I would rather have a rolling cart type since I use the...
  15. Re: Is a Tormach capable of making this part in small production qtys?

    Looks good. I am always amazed at some of the things people sell that you would think there is not much of a market for. And that comes from somebody that makes a good part of their living on...

    Re: black ox TTS tool holders

    Be sure to let us know how it works out. You likely won't know for a little while how it holds up on the holders in use, but I would like to also know about the ease of use and quality of coating...

    Steve, can you give a link to a web site with your stuff or share a few pictures?

    black ox TTS tool holders

    Has anybody tried to have their TTS toolholders black ox coated? The areas that are already black oxed on their holders hold up very well to corrosion. I am wondering if I do the entire holder if...

    Re: Tormach 440 Part Success

    Looks great. How long did it take? I assume you used a thread mill?
  20. Re: Is a Tormach capable of making this part in small production qtys?

    Don't forget about the option of getting your turned blanks from another shop and then buying a Tormach to finish the milling parts of it. Not sure how much you would save getting the parts with...

    Re: Rapid Turn

    I got a new hard drive for my controller and put Pathpilot on it. Could have put the Mach drive back in if it didn't work good, but all is fine and I don't see ever going back. Plan to do PP on my...
  22. Re: Inexpensive TTS ER20 Collet Chucks Still Available?

    OK, thanks. Not really sure that I would need super accurate set screw holders. I use them for larger size end mills and will use my most accurate ER collet holders for the really small end mills. ...
  23. Re: Inexpensive TTS ER20 Collet Chucks Still Available?

    Thanks Ray, I didn't know that Novakon sold those. Not sure what the deal with the no stock is.

    Good idea on the reamer GL. Could also bore some out bigger. I did order ten of the ER20s from...
  24. Re: Inexpensive TTS ER20 Collet Chucks Still Available?

    Wondering if anyone has found a low cost set screw TTS type holder? Ystool is still selling the ER TTS clone chucks on Ebay, but no set screw holders.
