    [QUOTE=Ox;3216344]I see multiple listing for Cobra 65's rating them at 7.5 HP.

    I expect these to be 25hp.
    These only meant for finish passes after H/T or what?

    The cause of your failure was most likely the PO using a cheap or nasty coolant. Coupled with not changing/cleaning out Sub collets. AND (and this is big) Not using the Wiper during long runs!

    I agree with 62.5% of what you said too!
    All kidding aside. My Bimba lock pin had an electronic failure. Not air.
    And Hardinge missed this potential problem when designing the machine.
