We do a terrible job advertising it, but most of G-Wizard Calculator is free.  Seriously.  You sign up for the 30-day free trial, and when that ends, even if you don’t purchase, most of the tabs will go right on working for you.  There’s a giant treasure trove of useful calculators, utilities, and reference information there including:

  • Fancy scientific calculator with automatic unit conversions and much more.
  • The ultimate productivity hack for busy people–the same ToDo list with Pomodoro timer system I use myself to get all this crazy stuff done for CNCCookbook.
  • Geometry and Trig Calculators for Right Triangles, Oblique Triangles, Bolt Circles, Dovetails, Tapers, Chamfers, Drilling, Chords, True Position, Points, Turner’s Cubes
  • Fits and Tolerances for ISO 286, ANSI B4.2, and DIN 7172
  • Thread Database with all the dimensions, tapping drills, and more
  • Drill Chart
  • Fastener Database with dimensions for Socket Head and Flat Head Cap Screws
  • Weights and Volumes for standard metal structural shapes as well as standard lumber sizes
  • Thermal Expansi0n Calculator
  • Electrical Ohms Law Calculator
  • Resistor Color Codes
  • CNC Servo and Stepper Motor Sizing Calculators
  • G- and M-Code Quick Reference
  • Hardness Quick Reference with Rockwell (A, B, C, D, 15H, 30H, 45N), Brinell (Std, Hultgren, Tungsten), Vickers, and Shore scales
  • Rigidity Calculator to help figure your tool rigidity
  • Chatter Calculator to figure the right spindle speed to stop chatter
  • Geometric, Dimensioning, and Tolerancing Quick Reference

Phew!  I can hardly keep up with all of it myself.  I know there a lifetime subscribers who are still delighted at the new things they discover.  And we just keep adding more all the time!

I thought I’d make a quick video showing how it all works:

All of this will save you time digging through machinery’s handbook or trying to Google for it.  It’s all stuff that I use constantly and you will love having it at your fingertips.  So what are you waiting for–give the G-Wizard 30-day Trial a try:

PS This just gets better if you do subscribe.

First, you have the choice of buying the software outright (lifetime subscription) or subscribing.  Now I hear all the time from hobbyists who don’t think they can afford G-Wizard.  First thing is that one year is cheap–not much more than a single cutter costs.  But okay, let’s suppose you still think that’s too expensive.  The thing is, at the end of that 1 year, Feeds and Speeds keep right on working too.

What’s the catch?

The catch is that once the subscription expires, there’s a spindle power limit equal to 1 horsepower for each year you subscribe.  This is perfect for a hobbyist.   A small CNC Router may not be able to use more than a 1 horsepower cut–tiny machines just aren’t rigid enough.  That means a lifetime of Feeds and Speeds, limited to 1 HP, for just the cost of 1 year of subscription.  It’s perfect for the hobbyist trying to save.

And, if you ever get a more powerful machine, just re-subscribe to unlock the limit.  No muss, no fuss.
