    I've thought a great deal about this and the conclusion I've come to is I think our 'elected officials' should be chosen by random like jury duty.

    I've noticed machine tool sales guys really coming out of the woodwork now. Emailing. Calling. "Great deals on everything".

    Used machine tool prices will take a hit for sure if this goes on...

    Sounds worse than Path Pilot. At least Tormach is open and transparent about bugs and provides easy updates.

    This isn't the first report of bugs with the Nexgen controller.

    Wow today was a blood bath. Good thing the PPT came to save the day.

    Feds moved in this morning before the market opened and basically said they would backstop pretty much everything. Good thing...

    Agreed. Walter - Titex IMO is a better drill (I think it is the best for the price but I'm a Titex fanboy). High end: use the DC170. Many people don't seem to know about the DC150s - the "budget"...

    There is a shortage of ventilators ... very true. But putting someone on a ventilator is very human intensive. It requires constant monitoring.

    I never understood why Haas didn't come out with e SR option (super rigid) and used upgraded cylindrical roller linear rails instead of the ball ones. Add an option for a more rigid spindle as well....
