    If I have to invest any more effort than driving to Ellison and picking it up?
    I will be adapting one of the Grundfos pumps I already have to the sump.

    Those are 3ph and the wrong style for me.
    I need this one: PUMP, COOLANT 3/4 HP 1-PH, TWIST LOCK CONNECTOR | Pump | Standard Coolant | Coolant Systems | Find Replacement Parts | Haas Parts | Genuine...

    Time is money. I don't have the time to figure it out.
    I already have some Grundfos pumps that operate on the correct voltage laying around I could adapt if that were the case.
    I just wanted to go...
  4. The state of haas support these days (pitiful)

    Called yesterday morning (5/27) on a coolant pump for a 2007 VF2ss. Parts girl @ Ellison Tempe jibbered something about "system down, can't see ???, not familiar with, let me ask service writer and...
  5. I used to be okay in both MasterCAM, and...

    I used to be okay in both MasterCAM, and FeatureCAM circa '07-'08ish. And, it was obvious to me where each's strengths were.
    Need to go from print/solid to part NOW? FeatureCAM was the right tool....
  6. Right along those lines, the reason fusion is so...

    Right along those lines, the reason fusion is so much cheaper than everything else is because it is internet dependend, cloud based.
    It has to be cheaper, because: If it was priced more in line with...

    I would believe that now that Delcam isn't the FeatureCAM mothership.

    250C is hit or miss as far as what results you will get.
    I used to love love love it! Then, it went to shit (for me). I have a good buddy that experienced the exact same things I was with 250C....

    Yep, gonna be a stretch loading the rear jaw.
    Got a tape-measure? LOL
    Watch the clearance with the Z way-cover guides. You cant hang very far off the back of the table.

    It would be excellent supplemental heat in the winter!
    My A/C has a much easier time keeping up without the compressor in the room.
  12. That is a really nice kit for $25k!

    For another $20k a guy could buy a Doosan VC430 and have a "real" machine. Seriously, not just haas bashing here.
    The Doosan VC is freaking BEEF. And, if a guy options this haas to come even close...

    Yes, no denying that they are whisper quiet, as far as air-compressors go. But, the noise they do make is very un-pleasant.
    And, gets very annoying after a while. It was a happy day when mine went...

    Don't do it! Trust me, BTDT. (at least don't completely enclose it)
    These screws actually generate quite a lot of heat, and need fresh air.
    Unless you can incorporate some kind of cool/fresh air...

    I have been told the 8k direct drive is the exact same spindle as the 12k SS, other than a few parameters.
  17. How fast are they trying to stop that spindle...

    How fast are they trying to stop that spindle from 27k? :eek: (I didn't even realize Brother had a 27k spindle)
    Are you running it up in that range? That is a lot of regen to burn off!

    Ironically...

    Same. I hear people all the time: "I only run my 12k spindle at 8k because I don't want to hurt it". I just laugh!
    Mine live at 12k, all day, every day. I have one on borrowed time. It was crashed...

    You guys are kinda on the right track with the spindle bearings.
    The deal is: after sitting idle for a while all the oil will pool on the bottom bearing basically submerging it in oil.
    For a...

    I can vouch for that. I'm not a player on this RFQ. But, years ago I did a couple small jobs. They paid right away.

    They use a delta/wye switch to give the spindle a broad torque curve. It seems to work really well.
    But, how they label these 30/40hp machines I have no idea? It is way over my head.
    All I know is...

    Actually, they are 10hp. Pull the cover off your spindle-head, and look at the motor plate. Every single ss machine I have been behind the cover of that had the old Baldor motor, had a 10hp motor....

    Read the last couple posts. What the fuck is a "handler"? And, why the fuck do they put the job out there at pennies on the dollar hoping some dumb ass will bite? Only to have people come back and...

    I'll throw an update in here soon. Doing about 90 hour weeks right now. No time for silly shenanigans.
