I don't mean to be "know it all" but a few things I've learned regarding equipment like this.

Your floor is where good parts and long trouble free machine life begins.

I say min of 10" slab with 5/8 rebar on 6" center where the machine sits. If you have intentions of more than one machine like this have the slabs be monolithic and isolated from one another. less vibration transmitted through the floor when both machines are running and that means better surface finishes.

Clean stable power is a must! Get a voltage conditioner!

This may sound dumb, but it's true I promise. Avoid having florescent lights close to the control. I know they probably used one inside the machine but for some reason a florescent bulb gives off "something" that can (not always, but can) screw with a control.


These are lessons I've learned after over 15 years of playing with these things.

Last: Program it like ya' stole it!


Best of luck on your new machine!

"know it all"? You seem way to intelligent to be one of those ;)

Very good advise on all accounts. I would just add "have a temperature controlled environment."


It arrived today at about 3 P.M. got her unloaded and in the shop by 5 P.M.
Got her set, wired and leveled by 8 P.M. Played till 11p.m then my wife said I needed to come eat supper and go to bed.... what a let down Not that the supper wasn't awesome....I just didn't want to stop playing.


Nate

Sambo,
Yes, it's here. My wife does think I'm acting a little funny

I took a 20 min part to make down to 3 min 17 sec on my cnc and the quality is better. Good luck with you new toy.
Thanks Kevin!

Yes, before I decided to invest in this I did a whole lot of figuring and pushing pencil and am excited. I know things always look better on paper, but feel in a worse case scenario this would still easily pay for itself. I will hopefully get some pix up soon.

All the best,
Nate

Does it have live tooling Nate?

Rigid tapping?

Oh how I wish I did on my Daewoo/Doosan!

Good luck!

My Deawoo has live tooling, it's great for 2nd opp. But you won't like the price of the tool holders when you go to buy more of them. Allways have more thrown in on the purchase of the machine and work it into the financing. I like to learn the hard way.
