    Don beat me to it. YG-1 Gold-P drills. I don't know what they did right? Grind? Blank? Coating? Don't care really!
    They just work. I do zero super-alloy stuff. So I can't comment on anything tougher...

    If my haas would sell, I would probably turn around and drop the $$$ right in your lap.
    That is almost exactly what I am looking for.

    No kidding! I never had a bicycle that stopped decent until I got my current bike. An old Giant Rainier.
    First bike I never have to worry about my generous girth blowing an intersection on!

    I've gone deep in this rabbit hole! What I have learned is there have been zero NEW lifters manufactured since the '80's! :eek:
    100% of what people have been buying, no matter the "manufacturer"...
  5. Are you hip to the hydraulic flat tappet pandemic...

    Are you hip to the hydraulic flat tappet pandemic yet? Way worse then the china flu. Mortality rate is like 90%!
  6. It ain't just raw materials! I've been stocking...

    It ain't just raw materials! I've been stocking up on parts for a bunch of up-coming projects (car/truck related).
    Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is in stock! Ox, you know those hubs you bought for...

    You forgot one Gregor: No subscription bullshit. They would need to provide a perpetual license/key.

    That post wasn't directed at you. I did read your question. And I didn't answer it because as you "realized" the answer was right there on the screen.

    And another thing!
    If you are a broker? Do not bother contacting me unless you are ready to stroke a check for $45k.
    I don't care how many people you have "looking for a machine just like this"...

    Since this seems to be the only question I get asked........

    Not including the pendant (the control panel) Max dimensions:
    16ft long (tip of pallet changer to tip of chip-chute)

    To add, just like the post for the last Brother I sold:
    I may be inclined to trade for a live tooled lathe. As I turn away a lot of work that requires such a beast.

    What does the shop have for a floor now? What is your reasoning for epoxying the floor?
    I will never understand the reason behind people wanting to "pretty up" the floor.
    When the odds are totally...

    Yea, I know. I've considered it many many times. BUT! That is just more time sunk in to humans handling the parts.
    It is going to go in/out of the CNC as many times as it takes. So, those 7-OP parts...

    This is similar to what I do. If I get an order for 100pcs, I order 110 for scrap allowance.
    I'm lucky that the customers I have "get it" and will buy however many I can not scrap when the run is...

    In red ^^^^ Bullshit. I'm not experienced with haas MINI's. But I'm pretty sure in '07 they were air/mist cooled spindles just like the larger mills.
    I've owned 5 haas's and ran countless. I have...

    Yea, the parts I was running in my 650: simple parts, but lots of features. And a ton of deburring in the machine.
    Including quite a bit of 3-D stuff because it was the only way (very hard on the...

    That is definitely Speedio territory. As long as you don't mind being married to your machine. Because you just can't walk away. They are too efficient!

    I've done similar, with success. If you can, remove that roller bearing, and do an aggressive sand-blast down there.
    Clean-clean-clean is what it needs to be if it is going to hold. How thick is the...

    Load a part wrong in the beastly 40-taper machines?
    It doesn't trash your spindle. And you don't get to throw a fantastic vendor under the buss, when it wasn't their fault at all.
    Then you...

    Even though I liked your post, and agree for the most part. You kind of contradict yourself.
