    Default Makino F3 vs V33i

    I'm considering the purchase of a new Makino vertical.

    Ideally, I need the best surface finish in brass, aluminum and stainless in thin wall 3D contoured parts. I would like to eliminate hand finishing altogether and can only justify this purchase if this is possible. The majority of my parts contain artistic details that are rarely milled. My Republic Lagun 3516 does a fair job now, but even with heidenhein scales, great software and slower feed rates, we have to hand finish everything.

    Does anyone have experience and thoughts on the F3 and V33i or other capable machines?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jason

    Haven't seen the F3, but Makino should have the V33i webinar in the webinar archives on their website. You should definitely check it out. That's a very special machine.
