    We bought a pump and kept our old one (that I replaced bearings on) so no core charge that I know of? I wonder if it varies by dealer? We use the Haas place out of Tampa, just a quick (HA!!) shot...

    Wheelie, is it just bearings going out, or do you know? I just rebuilt (ie put new bearing in, cleaned up a bit LoL) for a few hours labor and about $10-$20 in bearings from McMaster. We sucked it up...

    Masterccam does support probe routines, but its an addon. I agree with Larry, just use the quick code. Write it into Mastercam using 'manual entry'. Or you can use yours (once you figure out the...

    As much of a Haas fan I am, that is really true, and not a "Haas hater" thing. I had a job programmed at about 100ipm, I cranked the feed overide until it read 500+, but visually you could see it...

    Post for..? 3 axis, mill turn, 5 axis?

    Not sure about Gibs, but it cost us around $5k for a 5 axis post with machine sim for Mastercam programming a UMC750.

    I think #4 is your problem. I normally snug both bolts, indicate square, then go back and forth between bolts and incrementally tighten them. THEN you "tighten like a mother". :)
