    These are the major misconception, right here.

    First off, I pay a hair over $18k/yr just in insurance premiums for our family plan. Of course this is not pre-tax, so you could add about 30% to...

    Also, to all the people who jump to the defense of our medical system here, WTF!? Have you had any major medical requirements recently? Even here it is a nightmare of long lines, red-tape, and...

    Yes. They might charge a lot for it, but this would be pretty easy for the MTB or Renishaw/Blum/Marposs/whomever to implement.

    Not sure if I am allowed to say? Have a good relationship with them that I don't want to jeopardize. It was "around" 300k, and like I said; within spitting distance of the price tag on the Okuma.

    When I got quotes the DMU50 3rd gen was discounted at an "introductory price" or something. Seems like Okuma went the other way and priced their early machines too high. By the time I got the...

    @ cameraman

    Yes, I got the 3rd Gen. Siemens 840D. Scales on everything.

    For the price I am very satisfied. DMG MORI is dumping way more resources into R&D than everybody else, and it...
