I'm interesting joining the CNC industry and have been looking at job posts.
A number of them mention Bring your own tooling. What does this mean?
Obviously it means bring your own tools but do you have to bring your own collets/chuck, vises, hold down clamps etc? It is basically bring but the CNC machine?
I know the CNC industry is all about precision and in this case I vague idea what they mean but I would like to know specifically!
Thanks in advance
"Have own tools" generally means have the hand tools and measuring tools necessary to do the job you are applying for. The only way to know for sure is to inquire to the employer. Generally "own tools" means and wrenches you might use in a set up, hammer, dead blow hammer, hex wrenches, scale, combination square, edge finder, dial and test indicators with brackets and mag bases as needed, caliper up to 12", o.d. mics to at least 4", and scientific calculator. Employers are generally expected to supply things that wear out or take the most abuse like, clamps, studs, nuts, cutting tools and parallels, and things that are too costly for most people to afford like, vises, collets, collet holders, boring heads, boring bars, surface plates, height gages, thread gages, calipers over 12", o.d. mics over 4", and calibration standards.
