    HSK is not more rigid than the equivalent 40 or 50 taper. It simply does better at high speed.

    Higher drawbar force doesn't make up for the thin walls and the short taper.

    It's a 12,000 lb machine.

    Who said anything about high torque? HSK63 and high torque is an oxymoron.

    The cut was clearly outside of the design parameters of the machine.

    Half a million bucks.

    That's the type of cut you take in a 50-taper box way HBM, not a high speed HSK63 5-axis.

    But in his first post, he took pictures of himself in his underwear. Apparently he wears boxer briefs.

    That's gotta count for something, right?

    I remember someone posted a question about Xometry recently. I looked it up, and it was you.

    It sounds like he has yet to assemble a complete machine. So to say that making them is easy without fitting them together is premature at best.
