    Yea, Agreed. I had all those contacts. But, out of integrity and respect, I ignored them because I did not want to step on toes.
    When enough time had passed that I felt it was okay (and had the...

    It is not just your area. My local HFO is terrible (used to be fantastic). My old haas machines take a beating, and are crazy reliable actually.
    But, I will still NEVER buy another one.

    The simple, short & sweet (very accurate) answer to your question?

    I wouldn't offer the parts up front. But, being able to back up what you state your capabilities are is a good plan.

    It is. You just have to put the word out there.
    You will do well to get your CAM on site as well. When you do get something in the door, time will be a factor.
    Good luck.

    You make chips. Chips = $$$$. It really is that simple.



    I did exactly that as well. But, at least I knew what I was doing.

    The problem is they are solid carbide. And 1" diameter. So they have to start with a 1" blank.
    Too expensive to grind the shank down to a smaller diameter. These are well over $300ea already.

    Bull-crap. I pulled an old Baldor spindle motor out of a 2005 VF2ss. It said 10hp right on the motor-plate.
    The Yaskawa motor that replaced it is a much better unit. But, still not 30hp.

    Nope, 3/8"



    I never complained because a Watler-Titex 3/8" x 90' HSS spot-drill fit (albeit very tight). So, it lives in there permanently.
    I must have tried 50 solid carbide shanks in there...

    I use a sheet-ton of Accupro CAT40 holders. Last I knew, they were made by Pioneer.
    Every single one I have checked has been well within spec. And, the quality of fit/finish is very...

    Are you speaking of Allen?
    Allen was a fantastic tech. Probably because he has been working on haas machines for eons.
    He was a much better tech, than he is a service manager.

    That is a complete deal breaker for me. Not that I need a deal breaker to not buy a haas. They gave me that when they dropped control support on 10 year old machines.

    That is bullshit. I run 5 full-size CNC machines off a 60hp phase converter, simultaneously, every day.
    Two haas VF2ss, one haas VF3ss, one Brother R650, and one Okuma-Howa HL20 lathe.
