    You are quite right! Yet suddenly I’m feeling really stingy about the money I saved. :D

    Awesome advice and warnings.
    I probably shouldn’t use my plain-Jane RPCs on this machine. I’m not excited as out getting a Phase Perfect; maybe there are “better balanced” or “CNC” RPCs that will...

    New Machine Day! Little Fadal 2016L

    Absolutely no idea how to use this machine, but it’s here!

    Next on the list is leveling, cleaning it inside and out, and then wiring it up.

    And extra bonus was a box full of Collis CAT40 tool...

    No help here, except to say:

    I HATE mayonnaise also.

    And miracle whip.

    I would rather eat ground up fingernails that that nasty stuff.

    With the lead screw reverse, threading on those 60/61 Monarchs is a dream!

    Wish mine had the bed length and SWING yours has!

    Thank you.
    I think $5,000 is a score on that lathe.

    Thanks man!
    We have 48” long tines on the forklifts, and I can add extensions but they will widen the tines.
    48” ought to be long enough, surely?

    Other than overhead lifting as the online manuals state, can this 2016L be lifted with a forklift? I thought I saw tine pockets in another picture of a similar Fadal.

    And if so, I imagine a...

    Just realized I wrote "advise" instead of "advice" in the title. :dunce:
  12. Fadal 2016L coming: Any warnings/advise appreciated!

    I appreciate all of the answers to my questions in the Haas thread that I started.
    Right as I began the ordering process for a TM-1P, I flip-flopped and bought a used Fadal.

    I realize it isn’t a...

    Suddenly a 2002 Fadal 3016 pops up that supposedly has 860 total hours. Pics sure suggest very little use/not repainted, etc.

    Is that Fadal any good? Much more rigid and powerful than a TM, but…...

    Finally got news today that it is still possible to order an existing-design TM-1P. :cloud9::cloud9::cloud9::cloud9::cloud9::cloud9:

    I realize this question is a sudden derailment: Is it...

    I hope that is true! I have heard that software updates from the factory rep resets the hours (or the rep can, anyway)?

    TM-2 is indeed only rated for 350 lbs max table load. And there are nine of the previous generation available. I’m STILL waiting to know if they can sell a TM-1P as shown on the Haas website.

    Very impressive; your shop has some serious order and cleanliness. No hype, either...and your shop doesn't need any! My honest first impression was "that is a high standards shop".

    The salesman just called me back, and after hours! Very helpful. He gave me a glimmer of hope and said he will make sure on the TM-2 weight limit change. He also gave...

    Bummer time!

    Last night I was scrutinizing the options for the TM models, since I still haven’t been able to get sales to answer. As I looked at the TM-2P specs, I suddenly couldn’t find machine...

    I got the price hike email & reached out to the Utah rep today! Haven’t heard back! :ill:

    I am sure wondering the same. The local dealer is working on finding a time to connect and discuss the machines. I took that to mean: 1) too busy, 2) none in stock, or 3) the models I’m interested...

    It is tempting to modify the side windows into full walk through doors. At least one of them. Probably turn into a leak nightmare.

    Also, I was wondering on MQL to ease my worry about coolant. ...

    Anyone have the latest TM-2 that can confirm?
