    That's a good theory.

    And think about it this way.

    When you bend a paperclip, how many times do you have to bend it back and forth before it snaps?

    What kind of twisted logic is this?

    If a customer pays you $9,000 for material, but you spend the money on fixed expenses, where does the material come from? Do you pull it out of your ass?

    HSK is not more rigid than the equivalent 40 or 50 taper. It simply does better at high speed.

    It's a 12,000 lb machine.

    Who said anything about high torque? HSK63 and high torque is an oxymoron.

    The cut was clearly outside of the design parameters of the machine.

    Half a million bucks.

    That's the type of cut you take in a 50-taper box way HBM, not a high speed HSK63 5-axis.

    But in his first post, he took pictures of himself in his underwear. Apparently he wears boxer briefs.

    That's gotta count for something, right?

    A con man is aware of the shit he's pulling.
