    I would just get a large (like 120gal) auxiliary tank and hook it up to the Kaeser. The Kaeser will want to run for several minutes at a time so it heats up, as opposed to frequent short bursts, but...

    I could be wrong, but I think G41 has to be immediately followed by a G1. That G1 is where the offset happens. I could be wrong.

    What types of parts? What are you making them with? If in a CNC mill or lathe, what is keeping you from deburring in the machines?

    Or, are you blending/smoothing, and not really deburring?

    Hmmm ... my Mori Seiki SL-2B just took a dump, alarm #35 whenever I rapid in Z.

    The 2100LB is practically the same footprint as my SL-2B, but more HP and a tailstock. And faster. Much faster.

    Depends on the brass. 360 will not gum up unless something weird is happening. There are a zillion different brass/bronze alloys though. What alloy do you have?
