    @empower

    Like I said; my feelings about machines being old is subjective. Also, old doesn't necessarily mean bad. The DMG MORI NMV platform is freaking awesome, but they are a very old design. ...

    Good luck.

    This is going to vary so widely it's not even funny.

    I look forward to AS9100D chiming in to let us all know that his shop somehow generates more revenue than it takes in sales.

    Mazak definitely won't be out of the budget. Hermle would probably be the biggest stretch, but you might be surprised at the affordability of their smaller machines. All of the big builders make...

    Almost everybody makes a 5 axis machine with a stand alone pallet pool, and for 500k you should have a ton of options. Personally (and this is subjective) I wouldn't consider either of those...

    Scott I never said anything regarding infection rates, etc... I absolutely believe that the media is fear mongering, and it is totally possible that this is blown out of proportion.

    Are you fucking kidding me? So damn sick of everything being charged with identity politics. When is it a confirmed fact? When your cousin's brother-in-law's doctor says so? Once they declare it...

    Bob, either you are being combative or shamefully ignorant.

    For Pete's sake, have you seen how overwhelmed the medical infrastructure is right now!? You are absolutely being flippant.

    Mortality rates will go up significantly if we run out of medical...

    Assuming that it is still the same basic casting, rails, etc... as the 460/560, I think you'll be way happier with the 40 taper. While they are quite robust, it's not the type of machine where I'd...

    And contrary to popular belief; I'm pretty sure that long reach Haimer ER-16 costs less than the Accupro CAT40+ it is sitting next to.

    So nobody chiming in has actually answered the question?

    As for the "why?" -that's a dumb question. Even if there was no performance advantage, there are plenty of reasons for some folks to...

    I guess it depends when everybody else stops paying. If cash quit coming in tomorrow; 60 days would wipe out all of our business savings. We could maybe make it 90 days if I dug into the personal...

    I did clean out the machine with Whamex prior to filling. However, we just drained the sump and then recharged. It could be reacting to the old coolant that was still in the lines, etc.

    Not much really. But if I don't keep up with their 5 service packs a year I can't open native solidworks parts sent to me by about 25% of my customers. It's absolutely a scam, but I also don't want...

    I typically leave about .0005in of clearance all around. The sides trap the part and keep it from rocking/twisting. At least in my experience it seems much more secure that way.
