    I think you are shooting yourself in the foot. Horizontals absolutely kick ass for this kind of work, and a ten year old Toyoda hori will eat a brand new Haas for breakfast, if the work is anything like in the photo by BROTHERFRANK.

    Okuma is selling the Genos M560's for $99,999 right now. Same with their l250ii lathes being $54,000.

    I already placed my order.

I will have multiple quick change tombstones, 2 for every production job that I do.

    Doing it this way also allows me to have ball locks on the table for quick change pallets or vises so I have practically the whole table to use when I'm not using the rotary. Where a trunnion would tie up the table all the time.

    Thats the base price. I have a quote on my desk for 3 of the M560's and with basic options, Offsets, Probing, 4th interface, Chip conveyor (Drag Slat), and a few control upgrades and the price is just over $154K even with the multi machine discount.

    I'm Guessing you are working with Jeremy Shuman since he is the GM over Arkansas, Alabama, and Tennessee?

    We're doing some head to head testing with the Genos M560 and the new Haas VF3/50 with the 60HP High torque spindle on the new Haas castings (15,200# with the new HSR-45R rails over the HSR-35B rails) at Columbus McKinnon in Chattanooga on S7 Tooling and for MRR the Haas is killing it. Okuma still runs circles around the Haas with the control and high end accuracies so our plan is to Put five of the VF3/50's (60 HP spindles) and do all the roughing and medium tolerance finishing and just get 3 Genos for high tolerance finishing.

    Being you have several Haas now you may want to wait and see some of the new stuff Haas is Unveiling in the next few months. This whole move from California to Nevada is bringing some big changes.

    I used to work for Doosan and the machines are a great value. For the money, they're tough to beat. However Okuma is getting VERY competitive with their pricing and the Okuma OSP control is a winner. I think Haas has really come a long way from the ones I ran in the 90s. I have Okuma in my shop and it's never let me down.

    I got this email from Gosiger last week, If I was in the market for some new machines, it would be very tempting.
