Alright! way to go! You may be the winner! I've missed a few when
they were every 2yrs.

manufacturers are investing in new state of the art equipt?
even going to a show to "kick the tires"

"deals on wheels"?

YouTube cnc crashes playing on a big screen.

I wish. I have to work it. With any luck I'll get a few hours off to wander
around. I usually try and take a 1/2 day during set-up to wander around
too, but it ain't the same.
I'll be in 9410 in the South Hall again.
are you involved in selling those high end lathes?
After that video...samsung sucks. lol
But it is new, and new kicks ass for a while.
It's the kia sportage of machine tools.
That thing in your video is like a loaded bmw.
Does going in spirit count?
We will be there in the form of a drill mounted to a Kentucky Gauge / Hymark
machine. But as far as bodily attendance? No. I wish I could...
Someone shoot me some photos or video of my drill out there, eh? Daddy
wants to see his kid at the game but has to work.

I haven't been brewing a whole lot lately but I do have a couple batches
going--an aged barley wine which has been under airlock for nearly 2 years
now about 1/2 of which will be going into a corny possibly this evening with
the remainder going into 22oz bottles, and there's an imperial stout in the
primary that my youngest son and I brewed up a couple weeks ago thats about
finished--will probably take a reading and rack to secondary and put in the
fridge for a couple weeks let it clear up some more...probably bottle the
Also, I'm going to be making several batches of blackberry wine in the next
few months-- I simply couldn't resist since the amount and quality of ripe
fruit we have this year is waay above average--I've got the harvest routine
almost down to a science--getting 2 lbs of fruit for 10 minutes or so of
effort....clipping off the entire berry clusters with felco pruners and
setting into a wheelbarrow, removing the individual berries from the cluster
into buckets later....
We'll be showing the EZ-Comp / X System in the DMG/Mori Seiki (S-8900)
booth. It will transferring tool geometry and tool wear data from a
tool presetter and CMM to multiple machines in the booth. We'll also
be in the Caron Engineering booth (E-5322). Hope to connect with some
Ovation Engineering, Inc.

Yup. I used to teach people how to program, set up and operate them and
I ran the engineering dep't for for a bunch of years before I crossed
over to the dark side.
Nah, like I said, they are a decent middle of the road lathe.
We have much cooler older stuff too.

The owner of the shop Im at went wednesday, thursday he came back and let
the programmer go. Says he bought a cnc edm and a robot for the mill/edm
interface. So now we are expanding into another room, pumping up computers
