    I would need to look at it more closely, but I think a Brother S300 may fit 36-37" if you remove the sheetmetal on the opposite side of the control. I've done something similar on a S700 size machine...

    No. I suggested a test. It would require finding and using a tap capable of making the thread, and preparing the hole properly with correct drill and possibly reamer. Of course the material (import...

    Literally millions of standard BT30 pull studs are in service. They will do just fine for you. I would suggest keeping an eye on the angled area under the head where drawbar contacts them. You should...

    what are the exact alarm descriptions (not just alarm #s) you get when you try to run in NC (gcode) mode? If I recall correctly just the tool magazine (ATC) data had to be reset to go back and forth.

    Actually, the 300, 500 and 700 use the same castings. S1000 is completely different. They are the same depth wise as well just depends on what coolant tank it is spec'd with.

    It's possible you can try to reformat the memory and re-input all the parameters/data. Make sure you are well below the max amount of available memory space with your programs. There needs to be a...

    A brother spindle should stay cool or maybe slightly warm after extended periods of milling. feel the casting near the business end. I've seen shops get years out of them after a bump and the sound...

    I second what Frank Mari posted. For the most part the standard round collet works great. Depending upon the size, type, pitch and material being tapped it becomes more critical. I am working on a...

    The Blum triggers by a light source and a photo sensor through a window in a shaft attached to the stylus. no laser. It works well, but so do the Renishaws with a lot of upside to the Renishaws as...

    My preference is Renishaw OMP40 spindle probe and hardwired Blum Znano tool setter/detection. I am not crazy about how the TS27 tilts to trigger. The Znano is a straight down plunge. Very consistent....

    One thing I vaguely recall is there is a spacer on the shaft that the magazine rides on. If you weren't careful you could put it back together without the spacer. Sorry I can't be of more help. It's...

    Are you rotating the shaft with the spindle all the way up in the tool change area and the power off? Can you do the same thing on your R2A and compare how it feels? As I recall, the magazine motor...

    That was a Cleveland PM rougher in a side lock. $32 from Rutland back then. They changed their recipe though since for the worse, Hanita PM rougher now is my workhorse in 6061. Can still find those...

    The S1000 is really nice and is close to your price range including the tilting rotary. 10k High Torque or 16k spindle available. To do a 30" part you will need the S1000 (40 x 20)
