    What was wrong? You should post what was found so people who might do a search see a conclusion on how you fixed the engraving problem.

    The integrex I worked with was pretty roomy on the inside I thought. The only thing I saw that *might* be a problem is when the B axis is inline (90deg?) with the spindles and I could see some...

    I'm not convinced it is a strength issue. I've used inserted bars down to 3/16". The problem I always had was the teeny tiny torx screw to mount the insert, drop it and it's gone!

    As an aside, if you learn the Haas control well, Fanuc and Yasnac aren't too much of a stretch (on vmc's I have run) to learn. Mostly ease of use on a Haas vs a Fanuc/Yasnac. Homing sequences, menu...

    I wasn't trying to argue a point, other than a 4 axis on a vmc is not the same as a mill turn, or subspindle lathe. Yes, can get to 4-5 sides of part (depending on features), but cannot turn at...

    I think that is a short sighted statement (depending on your actual needs)-

    1) Can't really 'turn' on a 4 axis
    2) Can't access both ends of part using a 4 axis -vs a dual spindle mill/turn
    3)...

    True enough. BUT when/if you are used to buying sub $100 cat40's, then jump up to 2.5x-3x that for each holder, it can be quite a shock, especially with an 80 tool magazine! :eek:

    Does an Integrex have an option for a bar feeder? The one I spent a little time with had the tool magazine directly to the left of the main spindle. I am not thinking there was room for a bar to go...

    If you are just starting tooling up, I would skip the ER25 for now. I *think* ER32 goes from 1/8" (1/4?) to 3/4", so it will cover a big range of tools. Now, the downfall with using ER32 for smaller...
