    On my 96 VF3 there were pretty large openings at the top of the enclosure. I don't think a mist collector would work without making some panels.

    "Were"? Did you sell the VF3?

    Mine seems to be working well, even with the gaping holes around the pallet-changer, and the large void at the tool-changer.
    This Mist-Away unit moves a whole lot of air compared to the Tri-Mist that was on it. Even after I figured out the Tri-mist is a 208-230v machine.
    Plugged in to the 110v receptacle on the machine (as it was when it showed up), it was pretty much worthless.
    I got it connected to 220v and it came to life. But, the Mist-Away is even better yet.

    As for backlights on monitors, the CCFL tube usually turns a pink color as it dies, over a long period of time. If the whites were white and not yellowish or pink, then it was probably the backlight inverter. You can typically get these for $4-10 on Amazon. The type you need is based on the input voltage (12v or 24v?) and the length of the CCFL tube. The length is based on the width of the screen typically, 1 tube at the top or bottom that runs the full width. A 12" tube driver will work with a 10" screen, but a 6" driver will not work or work well, with a 12" tube.

    I got a bunch of 12" tubes from Parallax from the free table during their annual meetup. I had a bunch of CCFL inverters from years ago and used them both to make under-shelf lighting for my metal storage cabinet. There is a switch in the door-jamb that I can turn on manually and turn off automatically when the door closes. It's not a lot of light, but enough to see stuff on the shelves.

    I have been googling the heck out of all that.
    YES, the display was showing a pinkish hue upon first power up in the AM. I did notice that!
    And, I have found both the display, and the inverter, available on the net. Both obsolete from the OEM, but available.
    Having the pinkish hue present, it sounds to me like the safe bet would be buy a new display (SHARP LQ10D421).
    Both parts can be seen here:

    I am tempted to swap this backlight inverter in to one of the other mills, and see if the display goes black.
    That should tell me for sure if it was the inverter, or the display, correct?

    If it works, I will order up a display ($100ish) to fix this monitor for a spare for the other machines. That way, if one goes, I wont be out $600 again!
    The replacement monitor I installed yesterday is completely different.

    Yeah, do parts swap. That display has dual lamps, somewhat unusual in laptops, but I guess for older spec industrial...

    $100 is a good price for a new panel assembly.

    HAAS 600% markup strikes again!

    If anybody is on the fence about whether mist collectors are worth it or not: DO EET!
    I should have done this years ago!
    Shop looks really good Wheelie. Clean too! You getting any work done in there? Kinda surprised that you've got a mill right in front of a bay door, but trust you had your reasons. Would probably make sense with pics of the whole shop/layout - hint, hint (which you probably posted 50 pages ago, but I've forgotten about).

    Make sure you prime the OSB board with an oil base primer. I tried using a latex primer and large halos would show through the latex paint. Must have been something in the glue that was used in the manufacturing process.
