CNC Jokes   CNC Humor

You know a Machinist has been at his CNC
for too long when:

* Hasn't left his machine since he found Internet
     Casino Video Poker
* When programs disappear blames the
     CNC disk fairy
*Calls the drill press mommy
  and the Bridgeport his uncle
* Runs System check on that Tetris game
* Claims to be the love child of Giddings & Lewis
* Downloads naked pictures through the Ethernet
* Monitor plays Pay-Per-View
* Finds Fanuc software upgrade to run GOOGLE
* Drinks Simple Green like it was Root Beer
* Wife makes sarcastic remark about his software
*Illegally downloads Mastercam 2D
   to run the Integrex

Three most dangerous people in the world
* A CNC programmer with a Soldering Iron
* A CNC repairman with a program patch
* A CNC operator with the password

How are a Bridgeport Mill and a Tavern alike
     -- Drawbar

Signs your shop boss is spying on you
Wherever you go you're followed
    by a Tool Cart with sneakers
* The bracelet he gave you for Christmas beeps
    when you leave your CNC machine
* Shop coffee has a hint of Hazelnut
   and sodium pentothal
* Find yourself getting Tasered more
   than with previous shop leadman
*The bandsaw just coughed

*"Feedhold is your best friend"
    It won't steal your lunch
    It won't steal your girlfiend
    But if you are quick enough it will save your butt

*Said sweeter things to my CNC Machine on a finish pass
Than any woman ever

A man applies for a job as a CNC Machinist
The Boss asks "Can you play Solitaire"
Machinist says "Yes", confused.
Can you play lightsaber with your wrench
  and another mans screwdriver
"Oh, yes" says the Machinist
"Can you bounce your screwdriver off the cement,
  grab it, whirl it around and put it in your belt like a gun?"
"Sir, I've been doing that for years!" says the wanna-be machinist.
"Well in that case, I can't use you.
I have 12 men doing that already!" says the boss

CNC Humor

You might be a Haas Redneck CNC Operator when:
* The Monitor is up on blocks
* Program hardcopies have tobacco stains on them
* Empty toolchanger slots have Ford truck parts
    in them
* The numeric keypad only goes up to six
* There is a gunrack mounted above the monitor
* There's a can of Skoal in the floppy disk drive

A CNC machinist is someone who
fixes things that aren't broken

CNC's follow your orders not
your intentions

CNC programming is 10% science
 25% ingenuity and 65% getting the
ingenuity to work with the science
