Mike, Jeff and all, If I knew what AFL was and how it could help me, I would perhaps be interested. At this moment, AFL is simply another acronym for something I have no clue about ( I am guessing it is not the American Football League). If it is my own fault for not keeping up with the forum, shame...

Is there an easy answer?

When we got the sales pitch on the machine, I thought that I remembered that the machine looks at each forthcoming operation and if the tool that is currently in the head is capable of doing the operation and the time it took to change tools was more than the \"extra\" time it took to perf...

Am I missing something or looking in the wrong place? I am specifically looking for Grass 12634 in the 3804 series. Baseplate ...

Hardware Hole Editor

I might have dreamed this but I thought some time ago I read that one could download and import the hardware holes for brand name hinges automatically either from Thermwood or from the vendor or somewhere. We are using lots of different hinges now and it sure would save me time if I could not have t...

Dave & All, We zero our machine to the top of the wasteboard and we then never have to remove it for flip operations. You do have to set the wasteboard thickness to .001 when it asks you during programming the job because it won't take zero. We don't remove the wasteboard for unloading so it wor...

Thanks for the input. No, Jeff, I am not intersted in buying a machine you don't like..... Not all of us Hoosiers are gullible! We also got the flyer on the anniversary deal for Butfering. Plus, SCMI has a good price on theirs but we aren't sure we like the machine. We are leaning toward TimeSaver, ...

Suggestions of other brands? I...

We have the same problem but are more novice than you. Where do I search to delete the mclock files? In Thermwood sdoftware? In whole computer? Somewhere else? I tried this back in Oct '05 when it was also on this forum but was unsuccessful at accomplishing the task. I assume I go to wordpad, open t...

If we are cutting a program in Rolling Nest and have 50 sheets total and somewhere in the middle of it a tool breaks or whatever, can we repair, replace etc and resume from that point without having to go back and X-out parts we already have and renest whole job? Most of our nests are big and we got...

Bill, Thermwood does still sell wasteboards direct. We tried using regular grade MDF for wasteboards and have since gone back to Thermwood stuff. Commercial stuff curved up and and warped and created all kinds of wierd situations. For a few bucks more, get the right stuff and it pays. They ship it c...

We print the sheets identifying the parts and only print the flip operation stickers. We don't use the labels other than to get teh barcode off them. We use a #3 pencil to ID the parts on the table and write them in a non conspicuous place. sand off easily if wqe need them to. Plus no adhesive resid...
