    I know this is an old thread but you sir are a genius. I didn't know such things existed. I had this elaborate roll system all planed out and it was replaced with a $5 bag.

    With the frame being 40" long I haven't came across much that would fit it under the spindle. I found a Haas VS3 but it is more then the 5 axis. I feel the 5 axis would save us a lot of time and...

    The swing on the Mazak Slant 50 isn't large enough, it is only 32". The closest thing I can find as hanermo pointed out is a Haas TL-4. We might but have to make the 35" swing work and all our manual...

    When doing a similar operation a few months ago we used a face grooving tool and cut the whole core out. We were a bit short after coming in from both sides so we had to cut out a small section to...

    I found a FPT LEM 935 from 1998 with a Heidenhain TNC 430. I have heard of Heidenhain but never FPT. Anyone have any experience with them?

    We have designed tooling in the past to counter balance and allow a steady rest just off the end of the part. Some of the lathes I have come across have a high gear that goes 1500RPM. I know it isn't...

    From what I found on there website the swing is only 34". Other then that it would be perfect.

    What about tooling?
    I have planed for this separately. Mostly just common tool holder, end mills drill and taps. Nothing to fancy.

    What about fixturing?
    I have also planed for this separately.

    A tl4 would work great for us but the swing is an inch short, we need 36".

    The plan is to go CNC if I can afford it. The drawings are very rough. There is a lot more holes and details that are not shown. A smaller version of the End on our manual mill take 16 to 20 hours.

    I want to start by saying we only do custom parts with small build quantities; generally 2 to 10 parts. I am more interested in capability that I am speed. We out source many components that are...
