  1. Yep...I have an electronics lab I crammed into...

    Yep...I have an electronics lab I crammed into ~80sqft in my old condo, was looking forward to expanding a bit in the garage which is ~340sqft. The CAD layout really helps to gauge how much room...
  2. I agree. I'm certainly not considering repouring...

    I agree. I'm certainly not considering repouring a slab though some have suggested that. The floor should be plenty fine for a VF-2 with no changes needed. The garage door expansion, after sleeping...

    Eh, I'm used to working at home. I don't mind it as long as it's for myself. My day job is still 30 minutes away. :)
  4. I check about 1-2x a week, but either nothing...

    I check about 1-2x a week, but either nothing good or nothing remotely affordable. 80k/year, no thanks. Any place I have to drive an hour to get to is likewise simply not worth it. Unless I move all...
  5. Wait are you suggesting I quit my job, rent a...

    Wait are you suggesting I quit my job, rent a space in a different state, and fly in to see the SO on weekends? Really? Extending the cycle time on a design from "walk to the garage" to "buy a...

    Pretty close. But at a recent meetup they said they haven't heard anything from my house while I'm watching movies and blasting the speakers and two 18" subwoofers so... I'm leaving room in the...
  7. Meh...I don't see how a Tormach is materially...

    Meh...I don't see how a Tormach is materially different. As far as the various terminology is concerned it's the same kind of "thing" as the Haas. I sincerely doubt the city council, or neighbors are...

    For what it's worth, here are the most relevant codes I could find for the city:
  9. Holy shit. What. So they think someone...

    Holy shit. What.



    So they think someone will squeeze in with a hand cart and roll out a 10,000lb CNC mill? Maybe hoist it out the window?
  10. From what I've been exposed to as far as...

    From what I've been exposed to as far as insurance/business language is concerned, it seems to be more about checking boxes (in large corporations anyway) than about getting into the specific...
  11. Well don't leave me hanging, which words?

    Well don't leave me hanging, which words?
  12. Good point about the financing/insurance overlap....

    Good point about the financing/insurance overlap. Mike I am not sure what you mean when you say "manufacturing is specifically prohibited." Are you talking about home insurance or machine insurance?...
  13. 15 years of frustration (even minor annoyance)...

    15 years of frustration (even minor annoyance) isn't worth it to avoid a hypothetical support issue 15 years from now. If the machine has done its job in the interim I'll be happy to sell it for...
  14. That's the plan.

    That's the plan.
  15. Just got a quote for a Doosan 5700S w/ Fanuc 0i-M...

    Just got a quote for a Doosan 5700S w/ Fanuc 0i-M control. Looks like an incredible machine. Options are reasonably priced.

    $112k base pric for 30 tools, $115k for 40. That includes...

    -...
  16. Quick update. I'm talking to an Ellison rep about...

    Quick update. I'm talking to an Ellison rep about Doosan machines, but I have the sneaking suspicion that none of them will fit and that they'll be a little pricier than I'd like.

    The best options...

    The Haas models are on their site. Yamazen sent over an S1000X1 STEP file. I'm sure Andy (2outof3) or Frank (brotherfrank) in this thread can get you something quickly.
  18. All well and good, Brotherfrank. I have no...

    All well and good, Brotherfrank. I have no objection or reason to argue any of that. I'm on your side as far as Brother making stellar machines and Yamazen providing excellent and knowledgeable...
  19. Interesting! Thanks for clarifying. As far as I...

    Interesting! Thanks for clarifying. As far as I see it though, that recovered energy is really just useful for getting the spindle up to speed. There's not nearly enough energy in that storage system...
  20. Fair point, I didn't do an exhaustive study. More...

    Fair point, I didn't do an exhaustive study. More of "can I find a torque curve without having to ask a person." Where did you find Okuma curves btw? Can't see any on their site, although I do have a...
  21. To add to the above point about spindle ratings. ...

    To add to the above point about spindle ratings.

    Hell, even Brother does this. I'm looking at their S500/S700X1 catalog right now. The "Max spindle power" number, in big bold red letters, is...
  22. If they're the videos I'm thinking of, I've got a...

    If they're the videos I'm thinking of, I've got a couple issues with them, or rather the way people use them. If they are used the make the point that Makino makes higher performance machines than...
  23. They do, I actually saw one in Yamazen's Atlanta...

    They do, I actually saw one in Yamazen's Atlanta showroom years ago. Sounds like a Terminator when it changes tools. The work envelope is very small though. They have the M300X3 which is bigger but I...
  24. Yep, exactly what I'm thinking. Measuring before...

    Yep, exactly what I'm thinking. Measuring before and after a toolpath runs only tells you so much. I wonder if any MTB has ever made instrumented tools or toolholders. I.e. strain gages buried in the...

    Watching this thread with some interest, disappointed that these haven't been out in the wild enough for any real data. I do have a few thoughts it'd be nice to get comments on.

    1. As far as I see...
