    I was told the HEPA filter is mostly for smoke-type filtration. I bought one with my first Mistaway but never used it.

    As you mentioned there isn't an option for DWO or TCPC on the coldfire machines, other than a UMC-750 of the era. They went back and forth about it but ultimately ended up not offering those features...

    Even if you wanted to do it, the controllers have protections to prevent hacking the activation codes.

    The o9000 programs are easy, Haas has them available for download. But as you found out, the actual software option to operate the probe probably needs to be purchased.

    I replaced our busted window with a compatible double pane that we bought locally. Haas wanted $275 for the pane, local company was able to cut more than 100 off that price. The shape was easy to cut...

    For a band-aid fix, you could increase pressure to the machine up to around 100psi. It won't hurt, in fact the machine has an alarm if pressure goes too high, just as it does with being too low.

    Unfortunately the "spindle orientation" feature doesn't actually engage a physical brake, so it's not very stable. It basically turns it into a servo where the spindle is neutral until you move it,...

    To the original question, the Haas spindle doesn't have a physical brake on it, so it won't be able to hold a turning tool steady. Putting the lathe workpiece into the spindle is a better...

    What's the actual feedrate you would like to use for the finish pass? The reason I ask is because milling inside bores requires calculating the feedrate at the tool's outer edge which will need to be...

    I heavily agree with DDMachine's thoughts on it. It really depends on your budget and what you want to do in the long term. In terms of spindle power, Minimills and SMM are somewhat similar to DT/DM,...

    It sounds like they're going to retrofit the entire controller to something more modern. That will certainly do it, but that's a huge undertaking for just using probes.

    Check your Tool offset table, is there a tool height stored in the register associated with your spindle probe? If not then you'll just need to run the OMP height calibration routine again.

    A couple quick notes:

    TNC is only used when the tool has a nose radius. In the case of "straight" groove tools (tip 5,6,7,8) the tool must be completely round. It cannot be flat with rounded...
