Acra Machinery  Quality and Dependability

Important factors in a machine tool is Quality, Inspection and Reliability
Acra's mills and lathes are set to a standard of inspection and innovation.
This assures solid equipment that the customer can depend on.
Innovative new ideas like Inverter or Frequency Electronic Drive spindles.
Inverter drives eliminate the noisy mechanical variable speed pulleys that
give you chatter and vibration at the spindle. You get better finishes.
As a serviceman of Bridgeport Mills for twenty-four years listening to them
rattle and rumble, Inverter drives means less maintenance and a cost
savings to you.
My customers who own these mills will attest to it

Machinist Humor --- Machinist Jokesvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

Program: A magic spell cast over
one's CNC machine allowing it to
turn one's input into error messages.

CNC Programmers drinking song:
99 bugs in the G-code  99 bugs in the G-code
Fix one Bug reload it again 101 bugs in the
G-code 101 bugs in the G-code 101 bugs in
the G-code. Fix one bug reload it again
103 bugs in the G-code 103 bugs in the
G-code 103 bugs in the G-Code. Fix one bug
reload it again

Plan to throw one away,
you will do that anyway
Your choice is to whether to try
and sell it to the customer

CNC software:
Part of the machine that can't be kicked

Haas: Is user freindly-It's just picky
         about it's friends

2400 baud makes you want to get out
and push

CNC Operator: A red eyed, mumbling
mammal capable of conversing with
inanimate objects

CNC programming dept:
mistakes made while you wait

Warning: Young ladies if you wear
loose clothing be aware of the machinery.
If you tight clothing be aware of Machinists 

Let's play machine shop. You make something
and I'll grunt and reject it.

Any given program will expand to fit
available memory plus 1K

"640K ought to be enough for anybody."
- Bill Gates, 1981

Is reading in the bathroom Multitasking?

If you can't hear me, it's because I'm
in parenthesis

Smith and Wesson the ultimate
point and click interface

What approach does a Milltronics
salesman use? Sympathy

Excuses when the boss catches you asleep
*I was testing the CMM for drool resistance
*Whew! I guess I left the cap off the Dykem
*It's OK, I'm still billing the client
*"...And I especially thank you for the nice Boss, Amen"

Reasons to Go to Work Naked
*Your boss is always yelling
    "I wanna see your ass in here by 7:00!"
*"I'd love to chip in,
    but I left my wallet in my pants"
*People stop stealing your 6" rule after
    they've seen where you keep it
*Diverts attention from the fact that
    you also came to work stoned

Pessimists look at a glass that is 50% full
and say it is half empty
Optimists look at it and say it is half full
Machinists look at it and understand the
glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Programming is like sex, one mistake and
you have to support it the rest of your life   

I named my hard drive "dat ass"
so once a month my CNC asks if
I want to 'back dat ass up'.

An Enco lathe and a Horrible Freight lathe are in
a burning building and you can only save one.
What is the real dilemma?
Do you go to lunch or to a movie

Engineers give you the feeling
you're having a conversation with a
dial tone or a busy signal. 

You never finish a CNC Program
you just stop working on it

I don't have an attitude problem,
you have a perception problem

A machinist is like a blind man in a
dark room looking for a black cat
that isn't there.

Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train.
Are you going sixty miles an hour
or is the train going sixty miles an hour
and you're just sitting still?

There will always be beer cans rolling
on the floor of your car when the boss
asks for a ride home from the shop

The probability of being watched is directly
proportional to the stupidity of your act.
