    I think it's an option from the 10MA-D version and later. I had a 1989 Mori that had the 10MD and it had absolute encoders with their own battery backup separate from the control. Whenever I'd change...

    The Kyodo Yushi grease most Japanese CNC's with grease ways use never dries out. Even after 30+ years it is like new. It's $50 a tube, but a tube goes a long ways.

    Condition is far more important than age.

    Way wear is not really a factor on decent machines. Not boring a round hole is more than likely bad thrust bearings, nothing to do with the ways.

    OP-

    IMO, your whole idea is pretty dumb. You just want the port geometry right? You can model it up and generate the toolpaths right?

    So you take a head that's ported the way you want. You set...

    If I hadn't bought a real VMC early on I never would have made it. My first CNC was a 6000 lb knee mill. It was not workable for making money.

    It's far more complex than that.

    Mass producing parts means you need to store and distribute lots of inventory. That has a huge cost. Tons of waste and inefficiency. I think there's a balance that...

    I believe Haas's claimed 30 HP is actually 300% of the 30 minute rating of the spindle motor and drive they use. The actual continuous rating is more like 7.5HP.

    That's what Haas ran up until about 2010.

    His Hitachi probably has a Fanuc 5KW/7.5KW spindle motor. That's the same thing as 30 Haaspower.

    It's a VMC.

    It depends on the machine. An early 80's Hitachi Seiki weighing 10k lbs with a 40 taper spindle is on the lighter end of the scale as VMC's go. If it's in fair shape as far as spindle...
