    My 2 Canadian cents worth if I had to check this part.

    1: Get X0/Y0 for the bottom left hand corner of the part with an edge finder.
    2: Put a test indicator (e.g. Interapid) in the spindle and...

    I'm betting the OP doesn't have C-axis on his lathe. If he did, he'd have a way to orient the spindle already.
    Without c-axis, I don't think there would be a way for the spindle to orient at any...

    Pretty sure it wouldn't cause the problems that you're having but did you empty out the coolant that remains in the head of the Haas?
    There are a few liters, maybe more depending on the size of the...

    Yeah, the rolls in the first pictures are. I had to make 6 rolls over this Labour Day long weekend so my customer could start production asap. Some office genius' managed to forget to order these...

    Kind of hard to see the detail but these are rotary molds for cookies. Done on a Haas VF5 with a 4th axis, each roll takes about 8-10 hours to machine.

    Chump change, maybe for the Mazak head office, but tell that to the salesmen to sold the machines. I'm sure they each made enough on the deals to last several retirements.

    Besides why would Mazak...

    Have you even asked Mazak directly? They would probably know better than random people on the internet. Your company has probably 20 million dollars worth of equipment from them so I'm sure they'll...

    I'd look at using an indexable high feed mill, as long as you have the money for one. Judging by the part, a .75" tool would be a good size and would get you most of the way down the taper on the...

    Another Kaeser recommendation here. I have an SM10, the 10HP all-in-one comp/dryer/tank unit and it works great. Maintain it properly and it will last. It was overkill for my needs but it was like...

    My vote is for epoxy, if you care about aesthetics, except it will be more slippery if wet/oily. Unless you add whatever traction additive is recommended to the epoxy but then it will be harder to...

    Hey Aaron,

    That's some bad luck but this is the type of stuff that comes up with used machines.

    A few years ago the spindle motor and drive on my Haas had the same type of thing happen. I...

    Never seen that type of turret before but I'm certain it isn't VDI. VDI turrets come in 10mm increments from 20 to 60.
