    You must have been using some cheap holders in the Haas? Same programs and same style holders don't even run on the Brother vs the Haas in steel as the stepover has to be way smaller in the brothers...

    Brothers don't use a program number as part of the program (they are however listed by a number but it isn't "in" the program)...none of my programs use a percent sign. Mazaks and Brothers. And...

    fwiw I'd never compare any other brand spindle meter's to the brothers. They are very strange at what they actually show.

    Mazaks have their own control...and it's one of the best imo. They actually have a full on board windows computer on them. I'd take a mazak control over a Doosan or any other fanuc any day.

    Speedio's really aren't that expensive. But he is correct. They are ultra weak. Certain toolpaths I took for granted even on the Haas turned out to be too much for the speedio. With the right...

    There's no reason not to run them at the recommended surface speed...Often with the usual 12k (or 16k for you now) we end up running at well below what they can be run at.
