    David,

    If you can get it back to reading and remove the stylus, you can order the stylus from Q-Mark.

    No plans for the new D00 control on anything besides the new W machine. The M200 sounds like a good fit.

    There is not much if any real diffeence in pricing between the S500 and S700 or even the S300. They are all made of the exact same amount of parts. The head assembly is exactly the same. The base...

    The M140 was great for specific jobs. Not great for an over all machine. Half of the original M140X1's I sold were resold, some very early in their life. Everything Greg states above is spot on. I...

    The machine won't care about the heater. You might be building a bit of a sauna.

    Not a religion but Japan builds a whole lot more 30 tapers than 40 taper VMC's for a reason. The first machines I sold had a funny round toolholder that would fly off periodically. Built for 3500 RPM...

    It is exactly the same argument. If Brother built a 40 taper they would lose what they worked hard to build. Cutting dynamics have changed allowing smaller faster cuts that were not possible not that...

    If a 40 taper is good than a 50 taper is better? That is the argument you just made above.

    30 Taper is not the answer for evey application but for many, especially in small verticals, it is an...

    As Frank posted, those are both side supports not tail stocks. Spend the money for the clamping version if you are going to do off center holes would be my advice. Not the place to go cheap.

    A quick note on the Brother table and side support. Brother does not build a tailstock, so any option from the dealer is something they are adding to the quote. The side support has air assist in...

    What a great thread.

    Call your local Yamazen office. The salesman can drop off a thumb drive with it.

    Thank you. I was just checking out how our Japanese tooling group saw the market. I really appreciate the feedback.

    I imagine those machines will be in the need for close to full rebuild if they were worked that long on a set of the smae parts.

    S-2A or newer will be fine for support for a bit longer. I would pass on any 3 digit machines. TC-22B or TC-32 are okay but a bit more expensive to fix because of spindle types.

    Back to the topic of the thread. I could buy one of those Doosans. Much like years ago, I could have bought a VF3 or better yet, the Mori version before it became the Ecomill. A good basic 3 axis...
