Newbie TAIG vs Pocket NC

Fri, 10/27/2017 - 22:16
Hi,
Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question.
I'd like to start my own rapid prototyping/small parts business, and I was realy excited about Pocket NC 5 axis machine, but today I found that TAIG CNC mill and lathe and they just look way more professional.
Is it worth going for 5 axes in Pocket NC, which is, actually, an expensive hobby grade machine with very small working volume, or stay with 4 axes and buy TAIG?

WTT ER32 headstock for 3/4-16 headstock

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 00:37
I have a brand new BB6 ER32 spindle. I thought that there was an internal stop for pseudo quick tool changes, but it looks like I was mistaken. It looks like what I really need is the old style 3/4-16 headstock with ER16 adapters or solid tool holders. If anyone with an old style spindle and a couple tool holders is looking to upgrade to ER32, I'd be thrilled to trade. If you have enough tool holders, I'd even be willing to throw in some of my Maritool ER32 collets as well.

Taig ER16 tool change/pull

Tue, 08/08/2017 - 20:48
I don't work for these guys but I bought one of there tools and said I would give them a review. I got a er16 tool holder that would be similar to a Weldon shank tool holder but it has 6 set screws to pin the tool instead of 1. It also has a setscrew inside the tool holder to help set the tool length. I think if I got a few of these holders and preset some tools it could be like a poor mans atc for the Taig mill. The company is called GenSwiss. I think their tool holder will help me with tools pulling out of my er 16 collets, and presetting tool length offsets for many tools.
