I worked as a machinist and programmer for about 12 years in the Aerospace industry, and we used a lot of Japanese and Chinese machine tools.

Some of the instructions and placards on the machines were pretty good.

"During times of abnormal stop, do not touch the machine recklessly, while for touching the machine, confirm the state well" (Okuma Mill)

"Attention! If there are oil and will rotate!" (Yang Iron Radial Drill)

"The Great Big Electric Company" (plaque on a spindle motor of a chinese bridgeport)

When Fanuc first came out with their 3 axis CNC controls, there was a feature called 3D cutter comp. At the machine, the operator uses cutter comp to offset for undersize tools, so the program doesn't have to be modified. This works good for cutting profiles (2D), but you run into problems when cutting pockets and ramps with radiused tools, because you can't compensate for the undersize radius.

In a training session, I asked the Fanuc Rep. how to use the 3D cutter comp. His reply: "Armost impossibor for human mind to comprehend" LOL

We had a German guy come in and set up a CNC router one time. One our guys asked another guy to get him a BFH. The German guy looks around and says "What is BFH?" Our guy says "Big F***ing Hammer" The German guy starts laughing his head off. All that week he kept saying "Beeg Fokking Hammah, I love that" /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
