    If you use a somewhat slim holder you could get away with 4 inches of stick-out I *believe*. That's just shooting from the hip. That is for stepping down that angle.

    You need almost Zero axial and radial run-out on a saw that flimsy. Titanium is shrinking down on your saw just like it does on a reamer.

    Wish I had better ideas... good luck

    I've Never had the need or even seen the need for a drill chuck in a VMC with a tool changer.

    Huh? It should be as simple as posting the next tool coming up soon after the current tool is in operation.
    I'm not sure of any software that isn't doing this easily?

    A Whole lot of this depends on the INTEGRATION with FANUC and the MTB. If the MTB just "throws" on a controller it will suck.

    I can tram 4 vises square to one another quicker than you can cut soft jaws.
    The exact distance between vises shouldn't matter, that's why you have offsets.
