I love this idea. Any room for 3D printed ornaments, or should I put them in the CAD category?

Have questions fire away.

Do you think it is more efficient to have everyone program their own jobs at a medium sized job shop or have 1 or 2 programmers that control the programming for the whole shop?

Tye IMTS is defiantly worth going to see!

believe it or not.. I find small jobs for now on craigslist.

This market in my area is competitive. We are very fair on our pricing, but how do you stay competitive without putting your profit on the line. Do you work at a loss just to get a job in hopes more will come later?

25 years of design engineering.. working for others.. Bought a used mill 1995 Fadal.. what transmission advice do you have reguards to doing the day job and transitioning to job shop and own products. right now we are in 1000sqft shop one mill.

Small Group #1 tuned in!

Hello From Southern Cali!

Best Regards from Germany 👍

Checking in from Detroit, MI!

So where do I get an application? You hiring? 😂😂😂

Portland Oregon!

Boom from florida

BOOM! 👍👍👍

You mentioned imts on your page earlier. Would you recommend a guy looking to start out on their own to attend these shows?

I would like to put my son on the pay roll for the jobs he runs. But currently we are just running jobs and paying bills. Will this put us in any crazy tax or insurance costs?

Would you increase a lease on a bigger, more expensive machine to increase income potential ( basically over Capitalise) or just buy a machine specific for the jobs on hand.

Braddah Ty I was wondering. If Cnc machining would be profitable here in Hawaii. After all no more sugar cane and puneapples.

pro/engineer was my block to entry into the business for years 20K per seat.. Fusion is the game changer.. 25 years of crazy product development on other cad systems makes fusion a total game change.

What recommendations do you have for a small shop just starting out, to choose which vendors to buy tooling and materials from?

When starting out would you recommend leasing/financing a new machine or starting with a quality older machine you can purchase out right

I work for a company and I'm trying to get them intrest in cnc. But they are a set up production company, very short runs 4parts mabey at a time, what would be your suggestion for this type of production?

So many machine choices and as beginner whats the best entry level low maintenance machine,even foreign?

I just missed the broadcast but what is your take on a set up production shop? 4 parts but repeat jobs?

I think they should , started mopping floors , and being shown how to run grinders , lathes, and ram edms 28 years ago,

I just wish these guys weren’t sponsored by all these major manufacturers/corporations. It’s great that they are “leading the way” but it seems a little less genuine having unlimited resources.

It all starts with Philosophy!. I like what your doing. Jab,jab,jab, overhand right ,finishing with a solid left hook, and a straight right down the pipe. Boom!

Ready from the upper pensula! We need machinists! The trade died here and need motivation for the younger generation!

Great. I will be looking forward for Facebook live.

Thanks Titan for the wealth of knowledge that you offer. Very much appreciated.

I’m excited! We will find it here right?

Are you gonna have this available for viewing after?

I'm feeling the itch to start off on my own. Can't wait to read more and watch more.

You guys really do lead by example.

YESS ANOTHER EXCITING LESSON THANKS

Your an inspiration bro!!

Can't wait

It would be nice

BOOM!

Can’t wait!

How long do those inserts/tools last you at that rate?

Yea...great in most applications. But in job shop work.... Not practical.

Do it in stainless now lol

The problem with running this fast is the chips get ejected way further and in every direction including straight up through the gaps around the head of the machine. Once you drink a few aluminium chips in your coffee you'll slow it down. Totally impractical for drinking coffee.

TITANS of CNC, I have used the Micro Drop systems with 6061, I wonder if you could get 800 with that. I had over 100k holes on a 4-40 roll form in a Tapmatic at 2500 RPM. I changed it becaues I thought I was getting greedy. Still have the tap, that was 25 years ago

Entertaining video Titan! I’d like to see what happens when you increase the depth of cut along with it. Can’t wait for more vids keep it up

Impressive stuff. We're running a 4 flute Mitsubishi face mill on a makino A51NX at 14k and 850ipm. .05 doc.1.8 engagement. Like butter all day. I love my trade!

Jaw hit the floor when I seen the 800ipm pass. Love it.

Love Titan's attitude and how he gives back. True American, thank you.

That poor Haas Spindle 😂 Fun to watch and experiment with!

Now that's some real hoggin!

Titan, another great lesson, having worked selling tools and machines I believe you are doing the industry a tremendous service in trying to educate the end users, and bring a,sense of pride and excitement to what was a dying industry and trade. Hats off to you sir.

In my opinion radial engagement is too much. Anything over 70% create too much force and is almost slotting. This would be 90% engagement. I've found around 60% to be ideal. Just my experience though. Throwing it in an Okuma would reduce the single load also 😁. Still cool stuff.

Love your videos man ... My shop was running a " endmill" test this weekend and I told them it's a waste of money and time ... Harvi 3's 5 flute hands down ... But no they want to do it ...I'll find out Monday what they break

Love this - definitely cannot stress enough how important real world testing and data is. Numbers in books don't know your machines, your software, your fixtures or your parts. The only way to learn is through doing. Try things, make mistakes, don't be afraid to experiment. I'd like to see a version 2 of this test at half the RPM, full axial depth of cut, then see how much radial you can take. I'll bet you can still blow those MRR numbers out of the water.

Tooling one. Machine(spindle) 0. I really hope kennametal never goes outa business. They truly rock. Oldtimer.

God that looks like so much fun. I’ve tested our iscar face mill the same way (well I tested it on a job though haha) except I only pushed to 150% load at 3000 RPMs 60-90% stepovers and .15” depth of cut . I want more indexable tools in my life ! Great video as always! 👍

My employer need to see this and crank up the ipm on on DMG 210 zooom... zoooooom... zooooooooomm!!.. If it brake then it will be Titan fault 🙄

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but what was your RPM? Also, did you ever increase your RPM to maintain a constant chip load per tooth?

TITANS of CNC, can you give me some good tooling ideas for speeding up our machine time on 303 & 304 S/S? Looking forward to your response.

I was wondering how you got above 180% load. Not saying it wasn't a good video but at loads like that I'm wondering when the retention knob is gonna snap and send my spindle to snap city. Re-grinds aren't cheap. Ask me why it makes me nervous. We had our vf4 at 120% with a 1/2" alumigator and that was about it for my nerves.

Best thing I have seen all day Titan 😂. I was literally LOL ing at the 600IPM when you put the drag cars on! lol

I am glad you advised 300 IPM or so at the end. At 800 you will be replacing spindle cartridges. I learned on VF0E and VF3. And it is not if you have a crash but when you have a crash. Or ten. Like your work. I am the one that manually wrote programs to mass produce beadlock assemblies on a CNC. I worked for OMF at the time 20 some odd year ago.
