    The machine we use most is a Power R. It is a very good machine, also. Is your 'R' machine windows or DOS driven? I would like to hear more about your machines.

    Sounds like we are running about the same things. You don't use pkg 4? I've had 2 years on them too. Maybe we can help each other out with any problems.

    No i dont use P4 for the moment , its easier and faster to use
    P32 and you also have more power for grinding complex profiles
    i think you have a limitation in P4 that the steptool only can get bigger in diameter and that limits me , the dxf loading is a nice thing since all drawings comes in dwg or dxf files , so its just to cut out you profile from the drawing and load it into P32 and your
    almost done.

    on the other hand in P4 you can gash the inside rake angle on the differnt steps so you dont get negative rake angle on the smaller steps in diameter, but there is for sure more nice things in P4 that i dont know about .

    if you have any problems just tell me , and i would do the same.

    I think all of our Walters are in the 500 series. We have the mimi, powers and loader.
    I sure hope they make the sofware more user friendly.

    I have a few questions about pkg #1. I've been running this package mostly the past several weeks. When hired in the took me back and said here it is... make it run.

    Have been running a lot of 3 and 4 fluted corner radius ( anywhere from .009 radius +/- .002 to .050 radius +/- .002) the machine will hold this once its dialed in. But whatg is the best way to adjust for the misblends on the diameter and ends? (tangent points of the radius)
