the second one offered has a possibility for trademark infringement but if my old law classes memory is accurate it needs to be at least 30% different from trademarked material. I think it actually meets that.

Hehe, yah, if the shoe people send a cease and desist, it would actually prob help your publicity, lol. I actually dont think you would run into any problems till you get to making a couple hundred of these things a month, or if you start making shoes Just keep your dba something unique and change the slogan later if you run into a problem.

funny storry about cease and desists:
 
I once registered a domain name for a friend of mine who was making an independant movie about serial killers. the domain name was something along the lines of J*hn W*yne G*cey dotcom. can't remember exactly what the url was but it had J*W*G* in the domain. Anyway, I got a 10 page cease and desist from the cowboy's lawyers. never heard anything from JWG people though (if he even has people).

I think I need to Qualify something in my last post. It meets the 30% if the "ND Systems-" is left in the sign without it though there could be troubles but I agree with the answer of just changing it at some point. But it is catchy obviously or the original wouldn't have caught on as big.

as far as a logo goes, it should be a simple one, so that it can be easily engraved in the new machine.  I am close to having all the parts for it.
 
I have been sandblasting all the blocks, and I didn't realize how long it would take with a seriously underpowered air compressor.  My options are to take the next MONTH sandblasting (because I can only get a 2 second burst out of it), or to bring the sandblast cabinet to work & use the ginormous one there.
 
All blocks will be sandblasted, and those who want it brushed metal, will have that done after.  The sandblasting helps to de-bur the material, and clean up the edges.

yah, small compressors just dont cut it with sandblasting or painting. I use a 250 gallon, 28hp 3 phase 220v 65amp, and it even runs pretty much constantly with the sandblaster going.
 
seems to be a big gap between hobby shops and shops that will efficiently make you money. its getting easier and easier though. machines keep getting smaller and faster and cheeper

Almost all of the cap cutouts on the back of the block are taken care of.  Took me like, 2 hours to re-zero the machine after the power went out.  Not sure about the rest of the county, but we have been getting some KILLER rainstorms this past week in the north east.

Nate.
 
once you have the machine zero'd, drill a .500 hole dead center in the jig.
(I would suggest drilling it .004 'ish undersize and honing to .500 if you need precision)
 
now when you do a fresh setup...
, insert a .500 pin into hole, put .500 collet in spindle, drop spindle onto pin, gently tighten collet, rotate jig to align properly with X and Y axis, clamp jig, loosen collet and retract spindle, remove alignment pin from jig.
re-zero'd and aligned parrallel in 30 seconds.
 
Or in the case of a step loss or power outage after jig is clamped, simply manually move X and Y axis until spindle collet smoothly slides over alignment pin.
re-zerod, 15 seconds...
 
your welcome buddy
 
(Ive made all my waterblock and evaporator jigs this way, massive time saver)

thats a great tip. too bad whenever I lose my datum, I'm usually in the middle of a 5'x8'x 4" 3d sign that is screwed to a 6'x12'x1'' kerf board, lol. I always just drop the bit into my 0.0 before I start the job. same thing sorta but your way more accurate.

Thanks, Im just loaded with obscure info ...lol.

lol, totally hijacked as CNC thread, but its totally OK.  What better place to talk about it?
 
The shortcut I was using was to insert the drill bit into one that was already drilled in my jig.  I only had 1 bolt holding my jig in place, so once I installed an SR2 block, I aligned it then put another bolt into it to self center it. 
 
Now all I have to do is get the drill bit back into an existing hole, and change the coordinates to what the known hole location in.
 
Once I make my new table, I will do a much better job of installing the limit switches and use machine coordinates, this way it will always be where it needs to be and it will be easy to re-zero everything.

So my boss came down and expressed his thoughts on personal tools at work.  Needless to say I have to find a bigger air compressor, and fast.

FINALLY:
after weeks of drafting, coding and just saying GO for it, here is the Vreg O-ring version:

 
Its pretty nerve racking watching your 1/16" bit come withing 0.03" from the steel screw holding it in place, but thats why it took me so long to CAD & code it properly. 
 
Next step is the top, then copper ones will follow shortly.

A closer look. 

 
The O-ring gap is 0.0625" (1/16) and the gap between the O-ring and the screw holes is.... less.

Look's beautiful Nate, though I have 1 question. Is that O-ring deeper then in the buss blocks? or am I imagining that; or is it just a trick of the picture?
