    Got my first shot on the CNC milling machining center. Removed the vise, cleaned the table, cleaned the bottom of the vise. Reinstalled the vise and installed the indicator. Trued the vise in 0 to 0 both ends. Locked it down and checked both ends again. 0 to 0 both ends. When the vise was removed it was set down on a table flat. Flipped the vise over on itís side and cleaned the bottom with my hand. Barry, why do that. Vises are never set on their bottom mating surface. Gotta keep it clean and undamaged. Iím still behind on remembering codes and running a program. My mind/brain ainít what it was.

    Writing a simple program, then running it. A small step to complete the class.

    Hope Ur enjoying the machine shop class. Itís a little different from the usual motorcycle stuff. Been a little eye opening for me as well. I spent over 25 years in all types of machine shops, this has been a challenge for me; probably due to me being a senior citizen. Got some more of this coming, then back to bikes.

    Danny and Jacob did excellent on on the CNC lathe. They wrote a program to run on the mill. I was fixen some of the shop tools. Barry, come over and watch the milling operation. Yaíll do a dry run. Yep. Ok, letís see what Ya got. Yaíll do know aluminum loads up, itís supper malleable. No answer.

    Walked over and watched from a distance. Iím thinking crash and burn; train wreak. End mill working hard, chips flying, that little divot is coming pretty quick. Thatíll tell the tale.

    Danny and Jacob re-evaluated their procedure to make part. They decided the best way to machine the part was run the same program, but do it in several layers. They rewrote the program to do just that. Worked like a champ.
