    What is the coolant refill option? That's a new one to me, but then again I don't have any Haas mills.
    Push a button to mix and add coolant. I've got it on a 2015 VF-3SS and love it.

    We have auto coolant on every new machine....I wish every machine in the shop had it. Set it up right and it's fully automatic.

    IMHO I would build a decent sized sub plate with a minimal pattern and make the adapters modular

    That is one advantage.

    It is also way faster. The Lang on my 4th axis can go from a pallet carrier for production, to a vise, to a 3 jaw chuck in 2 minutes each. The one on the table goes from a 6" Orange vise to a pallet system, to the chuck, to a Lang vise in about as little time. Throw one 8mm screw, take off the old, slap in the new, tighten that screw down and we're back in business.

    Model up all the lego bits as library components, assemble them as-needed in CAM and everything can be driven off the COR. Even if you don't go that far and still want to touch off all your work, the ease of changeovers is pretty incredible.

    Agree with every bit there. I'm using 5th Axis' rocklock riser.

    One more you didn't mention is you can add the studs directly to (big) parts. Works great.

    Roughed this one on the horizontal using my old, repurposed 2x riser.

    Also in about 2 years you will have so many "legos" you can pretty much make anything without building any new tooling
