    Nice job. Nice hunka iron and a fun looking part too.

    There is no "crash protection" on this machine. Yesterday I "bumped" one of my soft jaws with a live tool when I switched from LT 1.002" to GE 1.002" parts. Alarmed out etc. Spent the next hour confirming everything was still lined up. This is part of why it takes me forever to get anything done.

    Spindle clamped at 3000 because a full bar of 1-3/4" stock vibrates pretty bad above that.

    Nice machine, I know It runs circles around that old haas. I myself have been wanting to get up to speed on macros, I do have the Peter Smid macro book. I just gotta make some time to teach myself....

    I'm in northeastern AL, maybe I could come by and check out your set-up one day!

    I have the same style but the Lsy. You should get some trusty cook spindle liners for the draw bar. No vibration

    I've got Trusty Cook liners. Either the clearance is too much or the 1-3/4" x .5" wall tube has the center hole off center.

    Ah. I figured you didnt as you said it vibrated too bad. I have 2 doosan lathes and dont really run them over 2000 either unless it needs it.

    Definitely check with them on that. We use those as well and run jobs all the time 5000-6000 rpm.

    Great looking parts and a nice setup for sure

    Yep, did the salt and pepper shakers. Haven't done a fun project like that in a while.

    I write short macro programs to do a few things in the shop that change (dovetail stock, go/no-go plug gages, go/no-go thread plug gages, facing saw cut stock, bunch of little cute probing macros). Super useful. Not nearly as complex as the one you've got, so props to you! To anyone out there who "should get up to speed on macro programming", I highly recommend it.

    Macros make quick work of a lot of features if you get fluent in using it.

    On one of our lathes we ran 3' lengths of 1.5" stainless just in the spindle with a liner than had like .005" clearance and the thing was really stable at 5k rpm.

    What kind of LNS loader did you get? Does it have anti-vibration wheels, and are the set too tight? With too much pressure the wheels push the bar off-center, which can make a heck of alot of vibration.

    3k is pretty good for a 12' bar of that size, some guys would make lots of noise or very little. Loader alignment, bent bars, spindle liners, and anti-vibration unit(s) is where I would start looking if I needed to get that 6k rpm

    Experienced programmers commonly have their personal library of macro functions.

    Using whichever are appropriate for a given program can really speed up s/w development.

    The barfeeder is just a spindle-length (3') one. Not trying to spin a 12' bar or anything.

    When I started in the industry I was running a Doosan Puma 240 and it was an amazing machine unfortunately we ran out of work for the machine and I moved onto the VMC's before we could get the full potential out of it. Would be nice to have another one or similar in the shop again.

    The Army must pay better than they say, for you to buy that kinda equipment!

    The Army doesn't pay as bad as it used to. When I was still paying for both my TL-1 and VF-2, I was pretty much breaking even with the machines at least paying for themselves. I'm pretty upside down on this one so far. Double edged sword...if I were doing this full time I think I would do pretty well, but as a part time venture I just can't seem to get enough done. That was a major reason for going with the Doosan: trying to automate as much as possible and get a lot done in the time I can spend out in the shop. Goal is to have everything paid off by the time I retire. It will be a challenge...
