    Default New machine day. DMG Mori NLX.

    The new lathe arrived yesterday after many delays due to snow and such.
    DMG Mori NLX 2000 SY. After seeing one in the flesh in Sweden before christmas I made up my mind.
    The Mazak QT I had did things fine but the build quality of the DMG seems a notch up.
    Will post some more once it's installed.

    Excellent choice. We have two of these machines arriving in June. I will be watching to see how they work out for you.

    Congrats on the new lathe.

    Would love to see more photos of the shop. That place looks immaculate.

    I finally got the live tools that was to come with the machine. The bad is that it took months, the good is that I got to order whatever I wanted (6 pieces), and I got 2 extra 6000rpm Sauter radial holders because everything took so long. So I have 4 radial and 4 axial now. The axial ones are from MT Marcehetti. All 4 are 10.000rpm. The single holders have coolant through, the double doesn't.

    I have made up a simple coolant filter system since the MT holders required 30micron filtering. I am working on a bolt-on plenum for my Mistaway also. Will come back with some pictures later.
