    I think I'd rather deal with an extra cable.
    Just need to add better chip management is all. Roughing endmills to powder the chips, high pressure flood coolant with nozzles in the right place to clear out problem chip areas.

    Adding another $2500-3500 for extra flood coolant is a drop in the bucket compared to the $32,000 on that setup.

    I've got some little steel parts running right now with a kinda long cycle (40 mins). And, I need them done ASAP.
    So, I figured today was as good as any to finish the big-fat-haas project while I kept the little steel parts rollin'.

    Ready to molest some pallets:

    Well, I hope I measure well. Can't change it now:

    I love the fact that they cover all the existing holes, and there are no clamps on the sides:

    Nothing I hate worse than a chip/coolant shower. Didn't used to care. But, I've paid my dues.

    No pics of molesting "pallet 2". But, it worked. It is a tight squeeze. But, "clearance is clearance".....



    Sorry about your anxiety Perry, LOL

    Yep, two dowels, two 1/2" cap-screws.
    I was skeptical at first. But, it seems to work really well.

    Great set up. You might want to slow it down a bit.

    Why the left handed rotary?

    It's your other left.

    I use two verticals with 4th's and one has it on the right and the other on the left. The one on the left has a steel subplate that overhangs a foot just for the indexer and I like it. Can't really hit the 4th with the toolchanger. The one on the right has some clearance issues that make it a PITA, but that's mostly because it's a big 4th on a small machine.

    I'd imagine with the pallet changer that Haas homes X to the right and it makes perfect sense to keep the indexer on the right. Saves a lot of length on the hose and wires I bet.
