    As far as machining goes, hi-pressure coolant is quite beneficial. Depending on your coolant and other factors, you could wind up with a foaming issue.

    Much of it depends on the conditions of...

    For me, not that much. Even the few times it did happen it usually falls clear and slams the chip conveyor belt. Like I said, we never really had a problem. The lube is constantly metered, the wipers...

    Not as dumb as you think. Distracted? Yes. Dumb? I don't think so.

    The big media and big corps are playing us off one another. Keep us fighting with each other over trivial shit while they sell the Country out. They fear the people.

    I've known Darryl for years, and worked with him when I was with Doosan. A real top quality guy and first class gentleman too.

    Doosan has exposed rails for X axis on many roller guide lathes. I never heard of a problem in the time I worked for them. They still have way wipers and lube so I don't think the machine would...

    There are a few advantages.

    You can boogey thru the part faster. You get a cleaner part off. The tool will last longer as it's more rigid.
    Downside, you have to tinker a little with the setup.

    Hi!

    I used to be Training/Applications for Doosan. I ran a few demos with Y axis parting as part of the demonstration. It worked REALLY well. It looked awkward, but the performance was terrific....

    Where were you 30 years ago? :D Dear old dad and my rotten Uncle made sure the family business got flushed down the toilet. Thankfully, I was smarter than they were, and was ready for them.

    I'm not sure where Doosan's pricing is anymore. Call your distributor. Doesn't hurt to ask. I do know they run specials.

    If you're cutting slots on the diameters, you'll *really* want a Y axis machine, or you won't be able to do much except rip a slot and hope for the best. The Y allows you to run the cutter around the...

    I know that Hopatcong Rigging will scrap it out. Call Gary and ask. Or you could put on Ebay or Craigs for $1000 with a vid of it running and someone will grab it either to use or for parts.

    I use PowerStation from Microcimm. Pretty easy to learn, inexpensive and you get to write your own posts. Great editor and engraver too.

    I had similar issue once - a voltage transient clobbered it.

    I make sure I've generated a nice chamfer at the top of the hole prior to thread milling, and that the hole is as deep as allowed. I start from the bottom and work upwards, this way I'm not cutting...

    The new 0i-Plus has the large display like the 30 Series do. I believe that they started fitting touch screens to them so current production may have it and they are probably starting to ship. One...

    Congratulations! Excellent choice.
    2 axis lathes rock and make money and the 2100L is a great choice. This one looks like it has the new Fanuc 0iT-Plus on it. You'll like it alot!

    Right off, you'll be successful.
    Other than that, the future is unknown. But - just keep powering through. Regardless of who is in office, you still have the ability to forge ahead.
