    This is probably a bit too obvious, but could you throw an assist spring between the fingers? Most grippers can grip on closing or opening. It's an easy way to get 50-100% more force out of the same...

    Whelp, it ... was... on sale for 54,500. Maybe the advertised sale went away at the end of March. Thing with sale prices is they always come back.

    Couldn't say, haven't needed one yet. Well, other than a backup battery, but I bought that aftermarket.

    If 2008 was any guide, it'll definitely happen, but probably not this year. The thing that really cuts the legs out from under new machine sales is when companies go under and there are useful used...

    They're really not that similar, Ox. The Okuma is box way, for one major difference.

    A used Okuma Genos L250 might get you there, they're only about $55k new and they can definitely hold a tenth concentricity over three inches if you know what you're doing. I'd be interested to know...

    Yes, this. It takes about 15 seconds to load a page on my phone. On my PC, no issue. I assume a tracking cookie is trying to do something and takes 15 seconds to time out.

    Okay, sure. Do you have a clean room? Do you have a team of doctors to run it? Do you know how long it'll take to get approval for a vent? Do you have a whole supply chain set up?
