    Yes, exactly! I hate hand editing. If I wanted to write code, I would have never bought software.

    Correctamundo! This falls in to that "there is never going to be a good time" to do it category. And, I am just going to have to do it anyways.

    Yep, I agree.

    Even still, for all the reasons barbter just stated, after slowing the Brother down from haas feedrates (a lot!) it made parts 100% faster than the haas.

    Technically, it undershoots tight corners if the feedrate is too high.
    And example:
    Cutting a .010 chamfer on a .2656 hole with a .250 drill-mill. 20ipm? Perfect chamfer. 30ipm? No chamfer at all.
