New HSMAdvisor License Upgrade Options

March 24, 2024, 3:18 am by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

There have been some improvements in the purchasing system that I think our users will find VERY useful.

From now on here is how you can upgrade your HSMAdvisor license:

  1. Adding More Seats to Existing License (OLD)
    As before you can add more seats to an existing license.

  2. Upgrade from 1 and 3 HP Licenses (NEW)
    If you're currently using a 1 HP or 3 HP license you can upgrade to either the Unlimted Floating or Unlimited Permanent license.

  3. Transitioning from Cancelled or Active Subscription (NEW)
    You can now switch from a subscription-based model to any other license type.
    Your current subscription will be canceled (if it isn't canceled already) and a new license will be sent to you.

In all cases, you will only have to pay the difference between the new and the existing license.

The minimum upgrade fee is USD 10

Please read more about the upgrade process here: HSMAdvisor License Upgrades


Multilingual support in FSWizard is coming!

January 10, 2024, 10:21 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

Change long overdue. FSWizard now has support for multiple interface languages.

So far there is only 3 available, and only in the web app at

The only languages I know is English and Russian, so please let me know if the current Spanish translation has issues and you would like to help me fix it.

I very much would like to outsource this work to native speakers, so I will be releasing the language files shortly.

Good news, everybody!

HSMAdvisor now has a G and M-Code reference page:

Also in this update, I have fixed error messages that appeared after the clean install.
These weren't critical as they appeared only once, but I assume they caused a few new users not to continue using the app, which is quite unfortunate.

The latest update can be downloaded from here:

Thanks to everybody who sends feedback and suggestions!

FSWizard v2.1.1

April 10, 2022, 8:50 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

FSWizard Machinist Speed And Feed Calculator has a new feature!

Filtering was added to the Cut Cloud tool list, making it easy to find the tools you are looking for:

You can filter by the library name, Tool type, and/or by a plain-text search.

Additionally, the list now checks the version and updates in the background, which means the page now appears almost immediately. No more waiting for 15-20 seconds to download all your tools each time you open it.

Thanks to everybody who made improvement suggestions and feature requests!

As usual, you can find the links to the FSWizard app here:


Adding more seats to your existing HSMAdvisor License

March 24, 2022, 11:08 pm by Eldar Gerfanov (Admin)

Who likes to send emails and worry about additional invoices just to add a couple of seats to their existing license?

Nobody that's who!

HSMAdvisor customers can now purchase more seats right from the page.
All you have to do is enter the same First Name, Last Name, and Email you used when purchasing the original license.
The multiple-seat discount will apply to the existing license!

More information can be found on the new help page:

HSMAdvisor and FSWizard Speed and Feed Calculators are being continually developed and enriched with new features.

Help them get even better by providing your feedback and suggestions!

Best regards.
