    Another vote for Curtis. He suggested a couple to try, and they worked well, in fact really well. His prices seem very fair to me, and getting support from a guy that knows stuff is worth a lot. One...

    I tumble 7075 and anodize later often. Use the appropriate solution with the plastic media, and blow them completely dry after. If you don't use the right solution, the chance for corrosion goes way...

    So we shouldn't talk about Brad and his shenanigans (Dynamic CNC) either? Just give him a free pass, don't talk about him, so no one is aware of what he does?

    Lots of good thoughts above.
    As others noted, wait for a letter. Fair chance they are bluffing and just want an easy way to eliminate some competition.

    I never owned that particular version of a Haas mill. My general experience is they are sorta ok, used to be better in terms of parts cost and service. In my experience they are not in the same class...

    He scammed some people while "selling" steel targets and armor plate. Threads on this on calguns.net. Use his last name for a search.

    Might need to use another M code, depending on the machine. IIRC on my R450 M400 turns on the wash down coolant system, M401 turns it off.

    Frank turned me onto that tool a couple of years ago. It's powdered metal, so I think it's more heat tolerant than HSS. They work pretty darn well.
