    I get it, they do the job.

    I think some play it a bit too loose with "Haas size fits all" is all.

    I agree with everything you stated.

    I do think the Haas financing and price transparency is the ONLY reason to buy a Haas. That means that any used Haas is a bad deal.

    I have had parts rushed through type 3 with blind tapped holes and the area surrounding the holes looked like that from not flushing the holes well enough.

    I don't think I've replaced them. They still look decent. I have a few others, similar style, USA made that are well used with some bent and shorter needles.

    The bolts are in the weekest place to keep the joint from moving during brazing. If bolts are done wrong they will pull the hole mess out of alignment.

    A heavy fixture for that is a simple job.

    prep w/bevels, preheat, fixture, properly braze, slow cool, done.

    That is a braze job. Adding bolts is unnecessary/dumb. Epoxy is not an option.

    I've had many machines with large braze repairs....

    That's my question. I use these regularly. Same tooling is used on both radial and HBM. It's dumb to have to pop a drill out of a quick change adapter so I can run it in the HBM.

    It's dirt simple. Just like a quick release air chuck only the balls fit into a short slot so it has some forward-reverse slop to it.

    Actually, Scratch that.

    My super magic trick for circuit sizing a CNC is to open up the cabinet and see what size wire the maker runs out of the main breaker. Look up the ampacity of that size...

    No, that's definitely not a 340. 340 is a 2 stage pump. That is a single stage compressor so it would be a 2XX model.
