    Well... a valid concern, especially if just having operators. Can you designate a 'dummy' tool? Just an empty holder or whatever as ALWAYS T1 or T20 or whatever. This way you 'protect' the spindle...

    Smooth control is "fancy" and all, but if you are familiar with the older controls it will take some getting used to. That said, cam programming is the way to go IMO!! :D

    Your tap is not too small* causing a breakage issue. We form tap 0-80 (.060" diameter nominal) all the time and have no issues on our VF2 & VF4 Haas machines,...

    I guess I worded it poorly. I didn't mean to say *only* Haas does it, I just meant that Haas seems to not have most of the quirky IMO issues I see pop up here every so often. Sure they aren't big...
