    The Brother's tool change time is at max RPM. That's where the two specs differ.

    If you've never seen a Brother running at 16,000 RPM, change tools, and get back into the part at 16,000 RPM, all...

    One of ours (ATC wheel) didn't quite make it to 2 years, so as a preemptive measure, probably 12-18 months with the D-cell mains.

    The alarm trips when it reaches low voltage before you lose...

    You'll generally want to pick your work offsets off the vise body. The dowel pin bores (for XY) and the vise bed (for Z) are the most accurate features.

    "Spindle Speed Abnormal" usually happens when the programmed spindle RPM differs from the actual RPM by a sufficient margin.

    Vibration usually isn't the issue.

    An example application would be on a live tooled lathe. When switching over jobs, just swap the heads on a few tools.

    We grind aluminum all the time on our big 32x80 Okamoto. Just need to make sure the wheel doesn't load up, which can be prevented through good coolant pressure and plenty of wheel dresses.

    Got air blast?

    How about a whistle attached to a toolholder?

    Oh how annoying that would be. But also so effective at getting people to run to that machine!

    We're maxing out the X-axis travel on this tombstone, about 11" from centerline to hit the chamfers.

    The centerline of the bores are roughly 8.5" from the B-axis centerline.

    Impossible to know without seeing the toolholders.

    Chances are you have some tools that are perfectly fine and others that should probably stay out of the new machine.

    IME, the importance of full 4th has more to do with the ability to index in increments finer than 1 degree.

    For the parts we make, we're happy with 1-degree and it's bulletproof.

    Those venturi mixers work off tap water pressure, roughly 45 psi, although you can get away with less. The graduations are more of a suggestion anyway, since venturi flowrate is affected by inlet...
