    I am pretty sure in some areas you would have to pay to have them hauled off, unless they have been run through a chip wringer. Solid steel scrap is as low as $60 a ton in a lot of areas.

    With everyone questioning your phase converter how long did the machine run off it, without incident?

    That was what I was getting at when I asked if he had the manual for the spindle drive, I should have explained myself.

    Have you downloaded the manual for the spindle inverter? It would be available on Yaskawa.com for free PDF download. They should have a troubleshooting guide in them.

    Post multiple clear pictures including the tags on the machines that show the specifications. The founding father of this site is an expert on those very machines if he decides to chime in.

    What? Haas controls are only on Haas machines and have been around since 1988. Fanuc controllers are on too many brand machines to name and if their website speaks the truth they first shipped an NC...

    If they ever have a CNC Tech version of Jeopardy you will dominate it. You seem to have been exposed to every CNC controller made. Seriously how many shops have you been in, a couple 1,000?

    That actually could have a proprietary control made by or for Chevalier and not your typical aftermarket PC based control you could slap on any manual mill. Some Goggling says the company has been...

    It used to be against the law to deface United States currency, not sure if that is still the case.

    No kidding, when I was in Cali 10 years ago I paid $100 a month for a 2 yarder dumped weekly. Now where I am at there isn't any available trash service. I have to haul my own. The landfill is free...

    I towed 7500# from coast to coast a couple times with a 2wd 4.8 liter gas Chevy Tahoe without trailer brakes without incident. The trailer had brakes but the controller failed. I just left plenty of...

    On a sliding head stock Swiss people are going to want to know the Z-axis head stock stroke. It can vary quite a bit. Typical is 8", but I have seen models as low as 4".

    It is probably still the same but when I had a California tax exempt card and was also collecting sales tax as I manufactured my own product there was a boat load of different sales tax rates from...

    It used to be a seller only charged sales tax if they had a physical presence in the state the item was shipped to. It appears that has changed, McMaster Carr is now charging me sales tax on shop...
