    I doubt you will need 6-axis for architectural work. It's much more suited to stage bending down the length of the bed. I think the part you are going to be kicking yourself over is getting a press...

    It doesn't need a flat for the entire length. Just a flat where on where a set screw is going to land at the desired gauge length.

    Why not a specialized extrusion machining center like a Modig? HHV2 - Modig

    I've had an AV-1000 since 2010 and it's been solid. I would defiantly go with the air/oil spindle on the AF over grease pack on the AV if you primarily cut aluminum. They are quite a big step up in...
