    I'm running a new Sodick ALN 600G which is what I believe you are talking about. I've been running sodicks for about 10 years and they are really great machines. I have never run a Fanuc or Makino but I have heard very good things about the Makino Heat. I believe the extra pumps are for the heavy volume of flush and pressure using "heat" techs. I'm very interested in Makino machines for my shop also. The Sodicks will hold tolerance and thread excellent . Have decent technologies to choose from and very easy to program. I'm sure the same can be said for the other company's you listed though. I actually work for a large shop who has a mixed bag of EDM company's machines setting on the shop floor. And honestly each one has its strengths and its weaknes. good luck with what ever machine you get!

    Thanks JTB3,
    We make deal of new Sodick ALC 600 machine, this is Europe model I think.
    Sodick seller has best knowledge of the wire EDM and also I think Sodick is best machine.
    Next we need vises for round and square workpieces.
    Is here somebody who have make DIY vises?
    Also we need fixtures for gears where we will make slots?
    All ideas are welcome.
