It was fun. Thanks for coming. I’ll figure out uploading the model for the dial indicator holder.

It was good of you all to come out today. I got to have allot of great conversations with many of you about machines and processes.

I had a great time, thanks for setting this up.

The 3D printing presentation was excellent! Been curious about that stuff for quite some time now.

Had to leave early, who won the door prizes?

Here's the pictures I took of the meetup...

sorry about the rotation on some of them - try what I might, I just couldn't get them to flip!

Double sided dial caliper holder .stl file attached for those who want to print. It's BXA sized. If someone can fix by moving the center height hole - that would be great. please repost! The bolt hole for holding the indicator shaft is M8 adjusted to 3/8 NC. Modifying in Fusion can be tricky sometimes and I'm having trouble with that.

If you print this then please post a picture!

EDIT -> Re-uploaded the right drawing. :confused::D

Please let me know if there are issues. 3AF7DFC2-8C9E-4D5F-8486-F89C224F08EF.jpeg Screen Shot 2019-01-13 at 4.46.29 PM.png

Thanks to the organizers, Modern and DGI Supply...I hope it pays off for them as well!
I have had no formal training so getting a tutorial while machines were running was priceless. One would think I knew what it took to drill a simple .500" hole, but I learned something there too. The tooling used on Saturday was an upgrade from what is under my bench, I like... that's going to cost me! Thanks for the shared knowledge, now lets see what I can do with it. I Googled the door prize, now that I know the vast uses for this thing I look forward to it upping my game.
Honestly... I am still pinching myself!
