ANCA software, Zoller equipment improve longevity, repeatability, and predictability for California Tool and Cutter Grind. Regrinding – Small in scope, the service offers cost-effective tool life extension by regrinding tools with complex geometries Complex cutting tools can have many different geometrical features – hook, helix, clearance angles – within the same tools. That variety is why California Tool and Cutter Grind has remained outside the catalog market. “We’re not trying to compete with catalog companies,” says California Tool Manufacturing Manager Jordan Armitage. “We are trying to diversify and operate as a high-end, high-performance house that can grind anything.” An area of particular interest to the company is diamond- coated cutting tools, due to their longevity, repeatability, and predictability. Diamond-coated tools are essential to the aerospace industry because they are used to cut carbon fiber. “There’s a specific grade of carbide required to make the diamond-coated tools, and we stock all that in-house to enable us to move quickly on our customer enquiries,” Armitage says. “We manufacture cutting tools to specification and send them out for diamond coating....

If this is the year that you’ve decided to allow your pony-mad kid to get in the saddle for the first time, here is our expert guide to what they need to wear. The two essential bits of riding kit for children are a riding hat and correct footwear. Optional but advisable extras are a body protector, a pair of jodhpurs and gloves. There is so much choice when it comes to riding wear for children, but it is really important that you choose products that fit well and comply with the right safety standards so they are safe and comfortable. NB: The shopping links below are provided to help you buy these items. We may earn a small commission from some of these links.

Hats are manufactured to comply with safety standards and here are the most up-to-date standards to look out for: Little children’s hats should be lightweight as their neck muscles are not as strong as an adult’s. All hats should be fitted by a BETA-trained professional, a service that it available in most tack shops selling hats. We do not ...

Gulls soaring as they near halfway mark of inaugural AHL season

The San Diego Gulls are nearly the halfway mark of their maiden season and, by all accounts, the American Hockey League club has surpassed all expectations. The AHL serves as the top-tier affiliate of the National Hockey League and local fans have flocked to the Gulls’ new nest to watch top young prospects on their way up to the NHL as well as players with extensive NHL credentials working their way back to pro hockey’s “big show.” The San Diego Gulls are nearly the halfway mark of their maiden season and, by all accounts, the American Hockey League club has surpassed all expectations. The AHL serves as the top-tier affiliate of the National Hockey League and local fans have flocked to the Gulls’ new nest to watch top young prospects on their way up to the NHL as well as players with extensive NHL credentials working their way back to pro hockey’s “big show.” Besides being a hit at the turnstiles (the Gulls have the second-best attendance average of 8,621 in the 30-team league), the team – the top affiliate of the NHL Anaheim Ducks — has also proven to be a hit on the ice with a record of 17-12-0-1 heading into this weekend’s set of games at the Valley View Casino Center.

Trump’s USDA is letting factories with troubling safety records slaughter chickens even faster

Sixty miles northeast of Atlanta, a chicken statue atop a 25-foot monument proclaims the small city of Gainesville, Georgia, the “Poultry Capital of the World.” In the rolling hills outside of town, white feathers trail the trucks turning into a slaughterhouse operated by a local company called Fieldale Farms. The Fieldale factory employs about 1,900 people. A lawn sign advertises jobs for $11-plus an hour and a big banner shouts “Think Safe, Work Safe.” But in recent years, according to federal safety records obtained by ProPublica, the factory has been the site of several grisly accidents, resulting in hospitalizations, amputations and death. Those accidents didn’t prevent Fieldale from getting special permission from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to speed up its processing lines. Chicken companies have long wanted to operate their plants faster so that they can boost profits, either by producing more chickens or using less labor. But speeding up increases the risks to employees already working in dangerous conditions, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. It’s been only a few months s...

England 35-3 Tonga: five talking points from England’s World Cup opener | Sport

There were echoes in Sapporo of England’s opener four years ago against Fiji. Back then the bonus-point try did not come until the 80th minute, here with three and a half to go, but it may not have arrived at all save for a moment of individual brilliance from Jonathan Joseph. Just as when beginning their campaign against Pacific Islanders in 2015, England were scrappy. There were 14 handling errors and four early penalties against, including one for obstruction with Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola not on the same page. When it was given Eddie Jones appeared on the big screen, furiously banging his desk. Ultimately it is a case of job done, the kick-chase functioned well, there are no injury concerns and Tonga never looked like scoring a try. You could hardly blame the waves of neutral supporters who streamed through the exits well before full-time though. Given the added scrutiny on referees in the opening few days it was inevitable to see Paul Williams take his time over major decisions. He and the TMO Ben Skeen communicated well whenever Williams needed assistance and Williams made the correct decision when opting against reaching for his cards after Sione Kalamafoni’s tackle o...

ThirdLove controversy: Bra company employees allege bullying by male CEO David Spector

Employees at the bra company allege policies at odds with the brand’s progressive stance and bullying from the male co-CEO. The fiercely worded letter ran as a full-page ad in the New York Times on Sunday, November 18, and took direct aim at Victoria’s Secret. “I was appalled when I saw the demeaning comments about women your Chief Marketing Officer, Ed Razek, made to Vogue last week,” it began. “How in 2018 can the CMO of any public company — let alone one that claims to be for women — make such shocking, derogatory statements?” It was signed by Heidi Zak, co-founder and co-CEO of ThirdLove, a direct-to-consumer bra company and Victoria’s Secret competitor. Razek had indeed made appalling comments in Vogue the week before — among them, an out-of-touch excuse for the brand’s outdated beauty standards (“We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes. No one had any interest in it.”) and a direct attack on the young bra startup (“We’re nobody’s third love, we’re their first love”). The comments confirmed what many people had long suspected: Victoria’s Secret, a company synonymous with long legs and six-pack abs, did not represent most modern women. It was the perfect oppor...

iFi Zen Blue is an affordable aptX HD Bluetooth receiver

British hi-fi brand iFi is readying a new Zen Series range of compact desktop audio products, the first of which is a Bluetooth receiver designed to plug into a system to gift it offline streaming functionality. The Zen Blue can connect to any component in need via its RCA (unbalanced), 4.4mm Pentaconn (balanced), optical or coaxial outputs, and impressively supports all the latest, high-quality codecs: Qualcomm’s aptX HD (24-bit/48kHz) and aptX Low Latency, Sony’s LDAC (24-bit/96kHz), Huawei’s HWA (24-bit/96kHz) and the AAC codec preferred by Apple devices. An LED on the aluminium casing’s front panel lights different colours to indicate the Bluetooth codec being received, while another on-unit LED lights up to communicate the sample rate. The Zen Blue is the first product of its kind to utilise Qualcomm’s QCC5100 processing and digital-to-analogue (DAC) chip, although iFi hasn’t relied solely on this system-on-chip architecture, employing some internal tweakery of its own in order to optimise performance. It has separated the digital and analogue stages, and signals being fed to the latter are not only routed through the QCC5100 but also an additional ESS Sabre DAC chip, which...

Louise Redknapp flashes midriff as she ‘kisses’ ex-footballer after Jamie split

Louise Redknapp flashed her toned figure in a tiny crop top after being spotted kissing male model John Halls The singer, 44, who is currently on the promotional trail for her album Heavy Love, flashed the flesh in her latest Instagram reveal. Taking to social media earlier today, the natural beauty looked incredible as she flaunted her svelte frame. With a jumper tied around her waist as she covered her shoulders, she kept the autumn chill at bay with an oversized camouflaged jacket. Ditching the make-up, and letting her highlighted tresses cascade past her shoulders, the mum-of-two flaunted her ageless looks in the sexy post. The picture comes just days after Louise was reportedly spotted kissing footballer-turned-model John Halls during a night out in London recently.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv X review: Not exactly towering above its competition

This chassis often emanates quality, but it’s expensive and has potentially key features sold separately The Evolv X is a plush PC case in the extreme. There’s the hinged, tempered glass doors on each side, the reassuring sturdiness and heaviness of a chassis that hasn’t scrimped on materials, and the strips of addressable RGB lighting running down either edge of the front panel, as well as along the PSU shroud. There’s also the small matter of it costing £200 – about twice that of a decent ATX mid-tower. This is clearly a bigger and bolder option, in fairness. It can hold larger EATX motherboards in addition to the usual ATX, microATX and Mini-ITX form factors, and the build quality is a step up from most cheaper cases. It’s not too tall or fat, however; at 520 x 240 x 520mm, it’s well within mid-tower range. Happily, there’s still room for an abundance of cooling. There’s an agreeable fan configuration installed by default – two 140mm fans at the front, one at the back – but there’s room throughout both for additional fans and watercooling radiators. The front set of mounts is particularly welcoming, with space for up to three 120mm and 140mm fans apiece, including space for e...
