    Your cycle time with the new cutter was 1:00 and your old video with the 2" cutter the cycle time was 1:04? Am I missing something? So all this hype was over 4 seconds a cycle?

    What about Okuma? Robert E. Morris Company would be your distributor I think. I am assuming they are just as good as Morris Great Lakes who have been nothing short of fantastic to work with.
