We don't want our airline pilots to fly by the seat of their pants and by just looking out their windows. We don't want our doctors to diagnose us by just putting their hand on our forehead. Even in machine shops, we don't ship parts that just look good, we measure and approve them, but for some reason, deciding what speed to run a cutting tool is still treated as some sort of magical black art knowable by only a precious few. Applying science and technology has been met with resistance. We have had wrenches thrown at us on shop floors and our cars keyed in plant parking lots. We have had more than one operator intentionally override the speed we gave them to make sure the tool snapped off during our demo. We do this at our own peril. Having "magic ears" is not a teachable skill, nor does it really produce optimum results. Who is going to setup tomorrow's jobs? We are freely sharing what we have learned and discovered now, in this venue, in hopes that we can reach a larger more receptive audience and help the industry move forward.
