    Is that a fair comparison. . . I don’t know? I didn’t run much soft...

    I think your seriously selling yourself short with the emphasis on “CNC Shop”.

    So, a hundred parts is a large number for me, so I don’t cut any volume.

    But. . . .

    I bought a $100 Wellsaw that’s probably 30 years old and it cuts better than your saw.

    My material...

    Funny, I mentioned this in another thread, I’ve broken 3 pull studs in a Cat 40, thankfully that hasn’t happened in my Brother.

    Definitely want the spindle probe, I’ve never used another probe, other than renishaw, have run machines with no “setting”, and it sucks. Maybe not for production.
