    Silly me...it dawned on me this morning that I hadn't figured the "out of sight, out of mind" miter saw that was parked in the upstairs of the old shop into my temporary shop plan. Fortunately, it's...

    I agree with Bruce...the workholding and human time required to do this "seemingly simple" job would be darn expensive, especially if the machine doesn't have an indexing lathe/4th axis. Check places...

    I share the same concern as David...it doesn't sound like there's a legitimate license for the software. Therefore, he/she can't "sell" it to you. You'd have to buy your own license from Vectric at...

    I agree with Bill...there's more to an oil change than just new oil. I'm not enamored with "frequent" oil changes...like the proverbial "every 3K miles" that continues to be some folks'...

    The manufacturer's maintenance schedule will likely have a "time or mileage" interval for oil changes. Given the vehicle is "out of warranty" and given using good quality synthetic oil, I'd...

    Having that Aspire license with the used machine isn't a horrible thing, honestly. Even if you don't use it to make 3D stuff, it's a great platform for 2D and 3D work as well as for the CAM side of...
