Amazing machines! Do you need to teach them a zero point to start at with each block you chuck up?

Yes they all have a zero point. On the raw blocks there is enough material getting removed that putting them in about the same spot is good enough. On the operations after that alignment is critical and I use stops or dedicated fixtures to locate the parts.
 
I made a quick video of some machining stuff today. Don't make fun of my video skills, or my shakiness.


In machining culture, is it considered a vice to stick a vice in a vice?

Looks great thanks for sharing.

Well ive gotten Jeremy's Intake/exhaust stud kit and WP overdrive pulley and it keeps my jeep nice and cool for the few days i've been driving after breaking in my cam 😁
That pulley definitely looks as good as it performs cause before my jeep would hold steady a bit over 210 now my temps are happier and the needle is about less/about 3/16ths below the 210 mark,note this is in the fall time (about 50*F) so it should be around the same in the summer time in this hot Texas weather which is prone to making my jeep a bit warm and especially in the trail !

The stud kit is amazing good ARP hardware but the cake being the washers, They are awesome and they'll look great for a while since i cleared them and they wont crack like my stock ones😁 All of it looks amazing and it compliments for what i have done !

15 Outta 10 id buy again from this man, He's a great guy and is passionate about what he does and we spare the same interests and after talking with him for like 2 hours i learned alot from him ! And Jeremy if your'e reading this, Again it was a pleasure meeting ya :D

-Dylan :D

Edit- Also will you be making that 1.5" Body lift still ?
 
Very cool. Compared to doing this on something like a Bridgeport, does this machine require that much coolant because it is so much faster?

Looks like an awesome shop.

Thanks, they will cut dry, but the heat created will start welding chips onto the bit eventually. It's a combination of the high rpms and large chips.
 
Just curious, I know this is your build thread and technically you're building stuff on the CNC, but what is that coolant made of? Looks like it'd be a PITA to clean up.... Sweet process. I love watching these videos and the hydraulic brake press ones that bend up all of our cool brackets. Absolutely fascinates me...

The key is to keep it all in the machine. It's a water soluble oil that is mixed with water to about 10%. When it is left to sit the water evaporates leaving only the oil.

Just to add...This type of machine is fully enclosed, so the coolant spray stays contained. Its a closed system that drains back to a tank and pumps back through.
