    Happy day! Count me as jealous!

    If it goes missing tomorrow you'll have to come to Canada to get it back!

    I like the shot from the rear. Notice the broad span of the Z-axis column mount (providing nifty access to the Y-axis workings), and the brawny, solid one-piece frame. Very nice!

    Verrrry nice </borat>

    Keep the rapids a notch down from max until you prove your programs out... and keep some spare underwear nearby for times when you forget. Things happen *really fast* in a Speedio.

    Also make liberal use of the tool check macros. One broken drill or tap can turn into a whole turret of broken tools super fast, and the time it takes to check after each tool is done is approximately nothing.

    The manual tether to slow down the rapids.

    When you were talkin about parts that worked well in a Haas mini mill I was wondering when the Brother was showing up.

    Looks like it just came out of a showroom! Congrats Dave! I see a Blum wireless probe decal on the front of the machine. That device is possibly the Blum receiver if it was included.

    Looks like the probe receiver we had on our Blum setups at the old shop.

    Congrats, that is a fine machine!

    I was going to ask the guy who bought my mini mill if he'd sell it back to me or I was looking to pick up a used unit. I still have all the programs and fixturing for a mini.............it would have been a quick set up and go I guess. But when this one from Comatose came up for sale, it was a no brainer.

    I'm really looking forward to getting it tooled up and making chips. I need to make a run for some odds and ends electrical supplies so I can get some juice to 'er. Hopefully it will come life tomorrow and I can start to play with it.

    We need updates! At least for the important things. Like does the speedio have it's own pink chip bin yet?
