    Looks like this has "man readable" shorthand that needs to get translated before it can be run. Do you have an example on a control that's been run?

    This is true; I'm using 4" gauge length holders anyway to reach into the trunnion, so gong to shrink fit didn't increase my holder length.

    An actual part. You can see some tooling marks after the media blast, but that's a tradeoff for cycle time. 17-4 H900, about three hours per part.

    This machine was installed brand new at the very end of 2015, and I've been the only user, so I know it's been treated well and not abused too much. I have bumped it a couple of times,...

    If you'd have asked me five years ago I certainly wouldn't have recommended a Haas, but this machine has been surprisingly good. I think part of the image issue is that a lot of people treat a Haas...
