    The sounds reasonable to me. Twice the cost of the bearings.

    With the Doosan, a guy has to come out and pull the head stock. That's probably 4-6 hours plus maybe 3 hours travel. Then the actual...

    There's probably at least $4k worth of bearings in there. I would think $10-12K would be the starting point.

    It's little risky doing a spindle rebuild on site. You never know what you could run into. If a journal has to be chromed or something you might as well just pull the whole thing. You need a good...

    Spray welding is used when you don't have much other choice. It works OK, but it doesn't hold up for very long. But, when something is worn and can't really be replaced, there's not much else you can...

    No. Spray welding to build up shafts is basically a cladding process. It's not welding. There is no chemical bond. It's mechanical, kind of like brazing.

    Haas is good if you want to:
    Walk up to the machine and have it set up and running as quickly as possible.
