    What is the problem? You posted some pictures of the disaster early on.

    I worked for them and they make a great entry priced slant bed lathe that has loads of torque, great features, and wonderful construction, service, and support.
    What's up with the past tense going on here?

    Is your shop up and running enough to be full time now?

    No longer with Doosan. Yes my shop is (finally) up and running! I'm also training and programming independently for a few local shops.

    Hey, does this mean we can dig the real skinny from you on Doosan?? Like, about differences in support around the country, and spares stocking? I'm still including Doosan in my list of potential vendors, but have some concerns given some threads I've read here.

    (For our younger viewers, here's one take on the origin of the phrase "the real skinny": What Does the Phrase “The Real Skinny” Mean and Where Did the Saying For the Truth Come From?)

    I was rarely in those, most of them are actors the marketing department hires. Yes, new shop thread with pics!

    I did not read every reply to this old thread. How deep was the snow anyway? Were the doors starting to get sticky? I thought back east snow was measured in inches. People from the east are surprised to see the snow load requirements for builders in the northern California mountains. They can be over 150 pounds per square foot. I think they kind of expect the seismic tie down stuff which is not much different from hurricane tie downs.

    There was about 36" of snow with a great deal of ice. The center unit was empty and unheated which caused the buildup. Landlord (who has since split for places unknown) was supposed to clear it. He didn't.

    He split, huh? Color me not surprised...

    On what I'd like to know - sort of what I asked, which is why did some folks have issues getting service for their machines (I can try to find the reference if needed). If I get new equipment I really want to get something more robust than Haas, but 'ol Gene does have (or used to have) a good service org along with the cheap iron. That means a lot to a small shop that may not have redundant equipment or maintenance techs on staff.

    Along with that, does Doosan stock a reasonable amount of spares in the USA?

    Wow, just read this thread for the first time. What a nightmare. I have nothing to add but just wanted to say I thank my lucky stars I have seemingly good insurance and a decent workshop space without the landlord.

    Hoping the best for MR Rizzo on his new place.

    Much of the service issues are due to differences in the dealers. Doosan America stocks LOADS of parts in the warehouses. But if a distributor is lax in placing orders, etc, it can reflect poorly.

    Thank you! This building is considerably more robust than the other.

    Must have been poor insualtion if there was a noticable difference in snow acculation betweeen occupied and empty units. Espically with only 3' of snow

    Based on the construction of the rest of the building I think we can safely assume that the insulation was at least poor, if not absent entirely.

    Unless you live above 10,000' (or Labrador) a 3' snow load is huge!
    I don't know where you guys are commin' from?
