Now I know what you do for the wireless company, you run a cheap azz worn out fadel. Good thing you stocked up on all that inspection equipment.

A continuous diet of crashes tends to do that.

This might be a good place to start.

First, you find the part of the machine that's closest to the floor. That's called the bottom. Let us know when you've done that, and we'll move on to step two.

Oh shit, coughing up my Big Breakfast over here..... :)
I was going to do a big shit on Banquer as the Stone of Sisyphus, or the Lake of Tantalus, yada yada, but you pretty much whacked the nail on the head.
Ahm figgerin, at least a week just to get the sliding doors off the cabinet.....
jb has so little perception of what normal embarrassment/shame is or should be, I'm wondering, when he goes to take a dump at break-time (I figger he does this to save on TP at home), does he invite his co-workers to watch?
Goodgawd....

That's where I would find your worthless ass wrapped up in a flag, Kirk.
Selling a lot of drilling machines lately or is that now considered just something else you failed miserably at?
Tell us more about GM=92s mistakes with Saturn. Since you=92re an expert when it comes to failed business ventures I=92m sure you can offer some more worthless commentary.

I see no manual but I'll call em. They look like a good parts source. I though you only had Haas machines. You start buying used FADAL's to make your old "bubble" Haas machine not feel so lonely?

Try using: Distance To Go. It's there for a reason and it might help you finally stop destroying tools and machines rather than being so freaking clueless.

Impressive site for Fadal Documentation.
I was scanning through the documents section and already found something I didn't know about FADAL's. If I am reading it correctly, it seems the Fadal controller has the capability to prompt the operator for data input.

INPUT
An INPUT statement requires that a variable register be specified to receive the input value, this may be requested by the PRINT statement. The operator will enter a requested value and that value will be placed in the variable register specified in the INPUT statement then continue program operation. Pressing the return key without entering a value will enter a zero (0) in the variable register specified and continue program execution.
The INPUT statement is used to halt program execution to receive data input and to display a print statement. It is assumed that a print statement will request some action from the operator. A PRINT statement only displays to the screen. PRINT will not halt program execution and therefore may scroll off of the screen before the operator can read it.
EXAMPLE: #PRINT ?ENTER THE DIAMETER OF THE END MILL? #INPUT V100
Thanks for posting the link, -- Tom

It is on the "internet" Jon. Part of being a good machinist and a good biz owner, is the ability to be resourceful, you know, using all of the available tools at your expense to accomplish the "task" at hand. Nope, I dont need a headache, er Fadal, my HAAS's are just fine, Thank you. Besides, how does an attempt to help you turn into an effort to bash me on your part?, do I need to light you up again? You asked a question, I gave you an answer, what part of this simple exchange eludes you?

Darrell,
You have never "lit me up". In FACT when I called you on the phone to give you the price you asked for you sounded scared out of your mind as well as dazed and confused. Seems like you need to get out of the shop more. Do you sleep there?

Jon, that wasnt "scared" or "dazed", it was "I'm gonna hold back for a moment and see who I am talking to".
Since you bring it up, why dont we go there for a moment. you called me to give me a price on the Versa cart, after I yelled "HOW MUCH?" on another thread, when I asked who I was speaking to, you replied, "The person who has the cart". You were somewhat combative in your response to me, so, rather than fuck up MY day by going off on you over the phone, I chose to stay on topic, (Versa-cart) and finish the conversation. You didn't deserve the manner of my conversation, but you got it anyway.
Come to think of it, I was so surprised you called me, rather than bash me like you normally do, I probably did sound a little confused. LOL
And ya, like any decent biz owner, sometimes I take a nap in the wee hours of the morning, in between rush jobs, if you actually owned a biz, you might have experienced that at some point. Thats what the cot in the corner is for!
Have a nice day

You yelled "HOW MUCH?" even though I've posted many times what my tool sales policy is. Suggest a Google search for: My Tools, My Rules.
I wasn't combative at all despite your yelling of "HOW MUCH". You got a prompt and polite response to despite your yelling and despite the FACT that I've clearly posted what my tool sales policy is.
I did deserve it and that's why I got it despite what you say now.
I agree that you are frequenlty confused and that you easily get confused.
I have posted that I owned my own business for 13 years. If you actually read what I posted you wouldn't keep making the same mistakes over and over again.
I'm here working to get yet another "hot job" done. Feel free to call me and say hello. Thanks for the link on Fadal parts and services. I've got a chance buy three FADAL's very cheaply and I'm considering it.

Scheduling not done properly?
Materials/tooling not delivered in time?
Machine in bad condition, and need to run less efficiently to get good tolerances/tool life?
Job quoted wrong?
Program doesn't run properly?
Operator could not get done in scheduled amount of time?
Please note lack of sarcasm and reply in kind.
I spent my weekend playing golf and fishing.

Like I posted... a hot job. Time to market is critical for the company I work for.
Not a problem. Ordered Friday, arrived Friday.
Just had it's P.M. done including a ball bar test. Need me to post the result of the ball bar test for you?
Nope.
I programmed it. It ran properly.
Operator, setup person, programmer, person who quoted the job... one person.... me.
You know (or should know by now) who I work for. Who do you work for that's so much more impressive than who I work for?
Note serious answers to your direct questions and reply in kind minus your usual sarcasm that goes no where with me.
I don't like golf or fishing. Too boring.
