    I would grab a multimeter and start probing with the power on. Just look for voltage. If you're not comfortable working around electricity then it's time to call in someone.

    What's the power...

    Probably running something nasty and abrasive. Now, you could get a machine designed for that environment...or you could throw away a Haas every few years.

    I'm not sure what impresses me more, the stable of vehicles or the fact you've got an M560 on the way.

    Very cool operation you guys have going.

    Writing software, working from home, and getting paid way better than they can in manufacturing.

    You say that likes it's a truism, but it's not. Increased cost of living, especially when it comes to housing, has changed the math even in my life time. Note that most entitlements go to people well...

    Pretty sure equating gustafson's defense of Millenials carrying more debt and higher costs of living with sticking up for a the bunch of deadbeats you know is a straw man at best.

    Best way to determine what control is in it is to check the part numbers on the boards in the control cabinet.

    Can't say I've checked into a Haas of similar vintage, but keep in mind that older...

    Multi-processor CNC may or may not have any real meaning. The 88/88HS/32MP controls all use multiple processors (one on each axis card, plus the main one, I believe). For a 2010 machine, it could be...

    Have you thought about using an archiving solution? GitHub would work for this, if you have a PLM you may be able to put it in there.

    You're forgetting that reducing the travels also reduces the moments, which reduces the deflection that drives total mass of the machine.

    There must be some makerspaces or something in whatever borough you're in. I would start there, they probably have a mill and a lathe and a basic training course.
