    Yeah the MAM jumps you up to around $800k I think. I never got any formal quotes on them but chat with the Yamazen guys from time to time and have gotten some "ballpark" numbers. The MX-520 PC4 I...

    It is 1000psig. I've got some relays laying here to get the low pressure hooked up (basically uses the feed pump through the filters into the spindle and bypasses the high pressure pump) but I need...

    That part picture just gave me a PTSD episode.

    It's the part singing, not the endmill, for sure. I had something similar that I was running on my old Sharp SV-2412 and I found exactly two nodes...

    They might not be those inserts - they look the same, but they were in the drill when I bought the company and I've only ever rotated them.

    I will use the "Racetrack" ramp contour method every time if given the choice. I always prefer to have that extra bit of chip clearance.
