explain why someone should never buy some lame assed Casio calculator
that is being sold as a machining calculator with standard machining
formulas written to it and then protected by a password?
This type of unit is usually sold by loser tool salesmen who have
nothing to offer and are looking for a quick way to make a fast buck
off of some sucker.

I don't need or want one, but I can't see any reason why somebody else shouldn't happily spend their money on something that will help them in day to day activities.
Not everybody has cracked seats of Mastercam and Surfcam to work with, like you, Jon (or Jim Jarvis, or Larry, or whoever you're posting as today).

"Basic stuff that works on my $15.00 TI cheap calculator doesn't work the same on the TI-83 Plus. I can't even get the sine function to work. WTF ? " -Jon Banquer -

Jon,
I must say Jon Jon, your memory is pretty good to remember my little effort in actually helping people figure speeds and feeds and other STANDARD MACHINING FORMULAS.
I guessed the Casio Calculator gig would be brought up in your response rant. Why would it bother you if it's password protected? If you want the formulas I would give them to you if you asked nicely. It bothers you simply because you don't know, nor have never known the formulas, how to apply them and probably don't know where to find them so you want to rip them off and put them into YOUR Blog and take credit like the 20 year old dovetail vise jaw tip. That was impressive to say the least for your 1st tip. What angle dovetail was it anyway?
Here's the reason why they are password protected. When I initially sold them, the endusers were curious as to what the formula was. They would go into edit mode and while they were in edit mode they would push a key somewhere that edited the formula, thus changing the syntax, thus resulting in that program not working.and then they would pay to ship it back to me for a reload of the program.
I could give a Rat's Ass if some low life wants to copy my programs to load them into other calculators they may already have. There are several shops doing it. ( Interesting if people are copying my programs it must work for them, hmmm never made the connection)
Yes Jon I'm a loser. But I'm not a Salesman. I'm a Machinist (actually cranked handles on lathes, mills & grinders) that helps reduce costs to machine shops. The end result of my efforts by helping machine shops compete in this Global Market is they purchase tools from me. I get tools running effectively, reducing costs, creating open capacity to get the next job in the machine, possibly eliminating the need to purchase another expensive machine so as to keep their profits high or reduce the cost to their customers to keep the jobs from going overseas.
So let me summarize this: 1. I'm a loser 2. My Calculator Sucks Big Time (over 3,000 in shops today) 3. I'm an idiot to even to look at this newsgroup more than once a year. It just happened to be today was the day I looked. Got caught up with things just like a good Soap Opera. You can be away from the drama for months, see who is screwing who, where the new actors are coming from, watch the old timers scare them away, over and over again.. 4. Since you ruined this newsgroup and other newsgroups so bad, in order to see anything that you write you had to create your own BLOG ???? 5. Your Joy Stick Jockey Ego must be suffering severely these days Jon Jon.
So when is your CAD/CAM system hitting the market? Since nobody can make a system to please you, I'm sure your release will be ready for IMTS, right?
Oh by the way, I'm going out tonight to play with my Loser Friends, that's F-R-I-E-N-D-S not my mouse, keyboard and monitor like where you will be all night, so don't expect a response until like 3 years from now when I come to check on your mental status and new meds mixture.

Jim:
I wish you'd rethink that proposed action. I've always thought highly of your contributions to the group. And have actually benefited from some of your advice over the years. Just ignore the negative posts.

Instead of purchasing some crap Casio calculator from a tool salesman who is a world class loser and often has no clues in regards to CADCAM, as well as many other areas of machining, here is a piece of software that I'm sure would pay for itself very quickly. I use the free version that Michael Rainey gave away for years because I don't need the estimating part of his program. I use ME Consultant to load values into my Mastercam tool libraries that I define by material. I could also further define my Mastercam tool libraries by machine but there is no need for that where I work.

I was also given Machinist Toolbox by the author but I have not taken the time to see if I like it better than ME Consultant.

Yeah, I'm sure that's a great replacement for a calculator, when you're standing in front of an engine lathe or a knee mill without a PC anywhere in sight.

Machinist Tool Box is a good program. Don't write it off just because Jon said he got it for free.
PC, PalmOS, PocketPC, Windows Mobile. Should run on some smart phones meaning at your fingertips unless cell phones are not allowed on the shop floor.

Certainly. But you're talking about replacing a simple calculator with a several hundred dollar piece of equipment with teeny-tiny buttons (or a touch screen)that very few machinist have or use. (Though I personally use an HTC Mogul, and plan on swapping it out this week for a Samsung Instinct).
