    Man, this is one of those situations that will be different for almost everybody.
    With different variables and priorities for almost everybody.
    Speaking for myself:
    Getting enough power was a PITA...

    Yep, that is exactly what the repair place it took the pump to yesterday told me.
    He didn't want to work on it. Said it was too small of a job to take on right now because they are slammed.
    Told me...

    I saw that! LOL

    No clue on the GPM of the pump? But, I am walking out the door in 5 to run to Ellison and grab the new one.

    Never experienced lazy coolant either. But, my newest machines are...

    Definitely a mill part. Unless you have a beast of a live tooled lathe with a bar-feeder and parts catcher. That could probably run them for a couple days straight.

    Going to have to be creative,...

    Pretty sure he had Sprutcam way back when? I initially though I remember him playing with Esprit. Then thought, no way.
    He jumped on the fusion bandwagon like day three.

    Well, I need to eat some crow here!
    I called the parts chick. She sent the email yesterday morning. It was in my spam box. :o
    Pump is in stock @ Tempe HFO. No shipping, I can take and leave my...

    I agree. They definitely love the trade. I'll give them that. Nice guys, both of them.
    But, C'mon! Quit the charades already. Not so much Grimsmo. He is just obsessed with making his knives. He...

    This right here! ^^^^^^^^^^

    I have never even used it. But, it only took me a very short time to figure all that out vicariously.
    I mean as soon as I heard "cloud" and knew that the machine you...

    You are correct. Here is what I gather (correct me if I am wrong).
    The entry level pay is too low for anybody to stick with it long enough to become seasoned.
    So, when (Ellison in this case) gets...

    I originally though bearings. Pulled to disassemble. And, once I got it out, found the bearings to be silky smooth.
    The noise it makes is strange. If you have ever heard a 3ph motor wired wrong to...
  12. I disagree. Do you think it was Ellison's...

    I disagree. Do you think it was Ellison's decision for HFO's to quit stocking parts? I would bet NO
    This was haas's way to get shipping costs off their back, and pass them on to the customer. On top...

    If I have to invest any more effort than driving to Ellison and picking it up?
    I will be adapting one of the Grundfos pumps I already have to the sump.
  14. Those are 3ph and the wrong style for me. I need...

    Those are 3ph and the wrong style for me.
    I need this one: PUMP, COOLANT 3/4 HP 1-PH, TWIST LOCK CONNECTOR | Pump | Standard Coolant | Coolant Systems | Find Replacement Parts | Haas Parts | Genuine...
  15. Time is money. I don't have the time to figure it...

    Time is money. I don't have the time to figure it out.
    I already have some Grundfos pumps that operate on the correct voltage laying around I could adapt if that were the case.
    I just wanted to go...
  16. The state of haas support these days (pitiful)

    Called yesterday morning (5/27) on a coolant pump for a 2007 VF2ss. Parts girl @ Ellison Tempe jibbered something about "system down, can't see ???, not familiar with, let me ask service writer and...

    I used to be okay in both MasterCAM, and FeatureCAM circa '07-'08ish. And, it was obvious to me where each's strengths were.
    Need to go from print/solid to part NOW? FeatureCAM was the right tool....
  18. Right along those lines, the reason fusion is so...

    Right along those lines, the reason fusion is so much cheaper than everything else is because it is internet dependend, cloud based.
    It has to be cheaper, because: If it was priced more in line with...

    I would believe that now that Delcam isn't the FeatureCAM mothership.

    Tell me more! because I paid my last FeatureCAM maint. payment Dec. 2019. I'm shopping!

    250C is hit or miss as far as what results you will get.
    I used to love love love it! Then, it went to shit (for me). I have a good buddy that experienced the exact same things I was with 250C....

    It would be excellent supplemental heat in the winter!
    My A/C has a much easier time keeping up without the compressor in the room.

    For another $20k a guy could buy a Doosan VC430 and have a "real" machine. Seriously, not just haas bashing here.
    The Doosan VC is freaking BEEF. And, if a guy options this haas to come even close...
