    Smooth is nice. We have a Bartac with that controller. Pretty much standard 80/20 rule. The touch screen is addictive.

    Royals are centrifugal. They do not work well if you create a LOT of mist/smoke. Filter cartridge types are more expensive, but handle large volumes well.

    Check to be sure the target on the tool eye is not sticking. I have seen the same thing happen several times on Mazaks.

    Back to chairs. One operator tripped over his chair and fucked up his back good. There was talk of removing all chairs, but the natives grew restless and M'Bwana backed off.

    You might want to sit down. $200,000 will buy one. Considering that it reduces cut time by around 90%, if you have the work, it is money well spent.

    I was misinformed about cutting aluminum. It eats it up. This machine uses an MQL system, the material comes off warm, but without the mess associated with flood coolant. So far, the only thing...
