    Yes that's the reference to tolerance standards.
    For machining Google DIN 7168 and use the "medium" column

    The other references are for:
    Casting
    Flame cutting

    I have not ran, but seen the HAAS VF-3YT with 50 taper a few times.
    They ran 70mm insert drills without much trouble, and also some heavy milling.
    A lot beefier than the ordinary HAAS 40-tapers.

    Our tech did'nt have the special tool to use with the tourqe wrench.
    Instead he used a small hydraulic jack between the two pulleys, with some wood blocks to not dent them.

    10 years ago i ran a SL 10 with bar 300 and dead length chuck.
    I used option 3 back then. You need a small macro to move the stop out of the way when loading a new bar.
