    It is neat... until you find out that the only holders you're going to find in wackadoo HSK50 are $400 a pop Haimers and Rego Fix.

    I would rather live in a world where 99.999% of the time, we use $100k ventilators that are masterpieces of technology, but we need to scrape something together in a pandemic that hits every 50...
  3. Gas driven paramedic vents are a thing and have...

    Gas driven paramedic vents are a thing and have been for years. The problem is that they are powered off of the input pressure from O2. Hospital O2 systems do not have anywhere near the capacity for...
  4. "Real" vent makers (Medtronic, GE, Drager, etc)...

    "Real" vent makers (Medtronic, GE, Drager, etc) are claiming they might be able to 3x-5x output, within the next 3 months.

    Problem is, the worldwide market for these things is about 40k...
  5. The talk about regulations/liability is so silly....

    The talk about regulations/liability is so silly. These are looking like the textbook of exigent circumstances.

    Look, the CDC is already putting out guidance on how to hook up 1 mechanical...

    I'm leading a small team working on a scaleable Automated Bag Valve Mask (BVM) project as we speak. We're rolling our first prototype out in a couple of days.

    Our approach is that you are sort of...

    Cameraman is curmudgeonly and english.

    His ideal motorcar is a Bristol.

    If you are so fussy about tool length repeatability to the micron, to the point where the HSK advantage here has a material difference on your requirements... you aren't buying a Haas.

    It seems like a total waste of money.

    HSK at 15k seems a bit pointless as none of the advantages over CAT-40 will really present themselves at those speeds. What you do get is a very lightened...

    Dumb-ass question, but why wouldn't MTBs just go...

    Dumb-ass question, but why wouldn't MTBs just go big on everything? The marginal cost between 45mm guide ways and 35mm guide ways should (theoretically) be quite small as a portion of the overall...

    I'm a fan of your products. In the last 12 months, I've been the driver behind over $125,000 in Big Kaiser tooling purchases across multiple production lines. I deeply respect your work and I often...

    Machine tool sales were in a big slump well before COVID. Trade war + big election put a big damper on everyone's equipment purchasing plans.
  13. What makes you think machine tool prices will go...

    What makes you think machine tool prices will go back in March?

    If anything, prices will be lower in the next few months.
  14. I think a Haas will serve you well. You aren't...

    I think a Haas will serve you well. You aren't holding tenths in Maraging 350 all day. You'll like the control, and Haas's video training is amazing.

    My suspicion though, is that you are indexing...

    I would avoid DMG, because we're all just bugs to them.

    In fact, I don't know who they care about as customers. I know not one but *two* multi-billion dollar multi-nationals out here doing Intel...
  16. This was true on the older Gen 1 & 2 UMC 750s,...

    This was true on the older Gen 1 & 2 UMC 750s, but is it true on the Gen 3 machines? Haas has significantly changed the castings and table support, so overall rigidity almost doubled. As such, IDK if...
  17. I would call Selway, but I would think the top...

    I would call Selway, but I would think the top cover and tool changer could be removed, along with the standard tricks used by riggers to get these machines in-place.
  18. I would really, really love to. There are two...

    I would really, really love to. There are two things that stop me. First, obviously, is the cost. Not just a mill but the prep and tool-up. I'd be looking at minimum like 300k with the Matsuura and...
  19. I don't think either mill is what you really...

    I don't think either mill is what you really want.

    Much of your post centers on questions about 5 axis. The problem with the 2 machines you are cross shopping for this is:

    Speedio- Is really a...

    UMC-750 Gen III is Here

    Haas finally brought the UMC 750 up to the Gen III design of the newer UMC 500 and 1000 offerings.

    YouTube

    Say what you will of Haas, but they obviously listen to customers. Some nice looking...

    The Brother is definitely faster on most production machining - so facing, drilling, tapping, contours, and HSM roughing paths. Back to back X1 Speedios vs new B5 Robodrills in production settings...

    Mode BI is actually 40 blocks of look ahead, but the control is monstrously fast. The reason BII offers 200 blocks of look ahed is not so the control has a buffer to keep up, but to more accurately...

    I think the answer here depends entirely on the parts you're making.

    Aluminum... but what size?

    Prototype? Low volume production? High volume production? Hobby?

    If you back up a bit further - why are you working with these 2" slugs and not from bar stock? 100k a month, and I would be asking the customer for the ability to add a bit more value + get the...
