    I imagine those machines will be in the need for close to full rebuild if they were worked that long on a set of the smae parts.

    S-2A or newer will be fine for support for a bit longer. I would pass on any 3 digit machines. TC-22B or TC-32 are okay but a bit more expensive to fix because of spindle types.

    Perfect Chiron long bed work, where they split the fixed table into two work zones. Cut one side while you load the other. Chiron would probably get the cycle down under 2 minutes. BUT>>>>> Not...

    What material are the parts? What size of parts do you consider large? What quantities? Does a pallet changer on a HMC make more sense running 24/7? How many operators are you planning on using? Is...

    If DJ is in Virginia, that probably was Morris South. One of the big three Okuma reps. You don't want to go around them because then you would never get service.
