    www.laserbits.com

    That's the site I do my purchasing through. You won't find cheaper sheets of acrylic or laserable media.

    Here is a sneak peak at the new toy that just arrived...

    - - - Updated - - -

    It is a CTX800TC. I am pretty excited about this one because it is a full 5 axis machine with a loader and loader system so we can run "lights out" or unattended.

    It is pretty neat to see the evolution of machines. We have old and new here. FYI: I scrapped that FADAL mill.

    I was trying to find a place to put it, but couldn't find a place w/ 3 phase that I could access it when I needed.

    We scavenged all of the good parts for spares for the other one. It is in much better condition but we will probably be upgrading it as well before too long. if you find space, let me know.

    Goddamn. I was impressed watching it chamfer the edge of the bolt holes before tapping.

    Then the fuckin' part hand-off for the backside. WTF.

    Let me know when you're ready to build a motorcycle with that thing. We can go into business.

    It is a little scary when you spend that much money but obviously I see a good ROI. (Let's just hope the politicians don't f**k up our economy.) As far as everything I can control, that half million should be coming back to me before too long.

    Yesterday was a big day in the history of Springville Mfg, this is the first part from our first fully automated machine. Instead of hand loading this part 5 times in 3 different machines, it is machined complete from bar form. There is an old saying, "you don't get paid to move parts around the plant, you only get paid for making them." Scheduling and transactions obviously get minimized as well. Prototyping should be easier to push through as well. Deburring will also be added to the program to eliminate that op as well.
