    Couple things come to mind:

    1) Replacement of atmospheric gas takes a while, and argon's not free. How about using the stainless foil wraps, but with a stainless tube running into the wrap so it...

    Nah, he wants the levels to check twist of the bed, a fine use for 199's. Gross level of the machine, I agree - normal levels are OK.

    On that plate - presumably it's steel? For the weight, it's...

    I don't have immediate references, but I've read that the Vactra formula had too much paraffin solids in it that could precipitate out and clog lines and filters. I've noticed in the past solids...

    Looking forward to seeing the new design of pull stud. Will it be around the same cost as the J&M variant, or more? Will it have a pilot diameter, or is that feature protected?

    Thanks for that vid! It's not the same sound as mine, which comes and goes depending on how long the machine's been running and where in the range Z is moving. I'll try to take my own video when I...

    I have a '97 with the same CB, if you're sure that's the issue then perhaps you could block up the head, bleed the compressed gas to "0", then decouple the shaft and try moving it up and down on its...

    Are the die springs so closely constrained in the spindle bore that runnout and unbalance are never an issue? In that case, what about rubbing wear?

    To add to my post #261 - while I haven't run a 30T, I have run a micro-precision five-axis machine that used ISO 10 holders, which make 30T look like 50T (or bigger). So I have some idea of dealing...
