*Tech Support is just a Voice Mail
      or busy signal away
*Fadal Tech Support on the phone:
  Bug? That's no bug that's a feature
*CNC troubleshooting:                                                      
   If it's not on fire, it's a software problem
*Nice CNC's don't go down
*Life would be so much easier if I had
   the source code
*Maintenance free CNC:                                           
    When it goes down it can't be fixed    
* Be aware of Programmers who
    carry screwdrivers
*Diagnostics are the programs
   that run when nothing else will.
"Save a tree - disband an ISO9001 working group today."

CNC Humor   CNC Jokes

Q. How many CNC Tech Support people
does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. Four
*One to ask for the Lightbulbs serial #
* One to ask you to reboot the Lightbulb
* One to ask you if the lightbulb
     is grounded 
* And the last one says " It must be a
   hardware problem because all the
   lightbulbs here at the office are
   working just fine."

*There is an artistic element to CNC machining,
   but nobody cares what color the bridge is that
   killed fifty people

*Q: Why don't the British build CNC machines?
   A: Because they can't figure out how
   to make them leak oil!

*Apparently I snore loudly, it scares everyone in the shop

* The easiest way to get your old CNC to run better,
    Check the prices of a new CNC

* A CNC consists of three main parts
  The enclosure
  The jammed toolchanger
  The blinking red light

*Why is the CNC cabinet always locked?
 The cash register is open
Invoices laid out all over desk
The safe is open
but the CNC is locked
What are you afraid someone will steal a relay?

  Problem exists between keyboard and chair
