    I looked hard into those a few months ago. It sounds like some of the main components are imported now. There is no way I could justify buying one of those units for the same price as a Kaeser, when...

    For that exact same Kaeser I was quoted $10,600, not including tax or delivery. $7,700 sounds like a deal to me!

    I carry a ZT 0350 and it has been excellent. It doesn't hold a razor edge at all, it stays moderately sharp forever. Now that I'm reminded of it I bought an Emerson CQC knife from them and it's the...

    What level of equipment? That's probably a 4-5 hour drive for a semi. At that distance if you can move everything in one load it might be cheaper to have the rigger drive from Portland to Bend (or...

    I vote we go as the Village People. We'll blend right in in downtown Portland when we go out, and we'll stand right out inside the event. The perfect combo.

    I thought the *lathe* (M140) machines already had Inverse Time?

    What are these parts? Can you show us a picture or drawing or tell us what they are? How many sides need machining? Any weird features? Any true 5-axis craziness? Are they super simple? Lots of holes?
