    What he said. Giving them a key - you might was well never lock the door. Have your lawyer send it on his letterhead. Utilities HATE dealing with attorneys because they always lose in court.

    I almost always use coolant. Save for plastics or certain materials that may stain. I used to run full synthetics, but I've re-discovered water soluble and prefer it.

    It isn't that hard to use. It can track minutes in the cut, or number of cycles.
    Can you post a better screen shot?

    It may have reacted with some left over Blaser? I've been using Trim for decades and never had an issue.

    Been running Trim-Sol likewise, since the late 70s, never an issue and hardly smell anything. Maybe it's his tap water?

    You're not going to get anything that's close to "state of the art" but, I make very good parts on 30+ year old CNCs and they still have lots of life left in them.

    I used plain old Trim-Sol for years. I switched to Zurn Aqua Sol 280 because of price, and it's worked well so far. Years ago, I ran full synthetic from Monroe - it lasted but didn't have the...

    Depending on parameter settings, the Fanuc could be reading the the feedrate as "F.0002" per rev or per minute. You may want to use a decimal (I always taught this in class)with the feed. "F.002" and...

    There are some who are just sooo cheap. I visited a shop once, and it was barely above freeing inside. Owner was complaining of part tolerances going all over the lot during the course of a day. He...

    Give Darryl Hardt a call. He's Doosan (Daewoo) service and VERY knowledgeable on this. Sounds like a keeper relay to me, but I'm just guessing. You can reach him at the HQ office in Pine Brook, NJ.

    OK, there's a few things you could do.

    EXACTLY what I was thinking. Many years ago, dad bought a Chinese CNC. It was "ok" for the first 2-3 years, then, quite literally, it fell apart. Oil lines that were supposed to feed ball screws, and...

    Your DNM can handle it, but the issue is that you can't go too slow or the spindle will stall. The DNM series of VMCs are roller guideway machines and the last I checked, the only geared head spindle...

    Sounds like someone was monkey-ing with the ladders or something. I have several OLD VMC's with Fanuc 11M controllers and none of them do that.

    First, if your 10T is using G code system A, it's G98 for IPM and G99 for IPR. Second, some machines have an M code for axis feed with spindle not running. You may want to check your list.

    All will make money.
    Of the three mentioned, I'd go Mazak. Excellent support, parts and service. A good heavy machine. Nothing wrong with the others, just preference.

    When I worked for a MTB I remember hearing of some pretty impressive invoices because the documentation was lost, no backups, and the distributor that sold the machine was long gone as well.
