    I agree if your gonna buy used make sure it is clean and has the big color display. 10k spindle, Probing, HSM, remote jog, auger are all nice. You donít want to add that later.

    Maybe I missed it, what oil are you running? Haas says to use Mobil 1 now. Maybe that might bring the temps down some?
