New Mill

Been wanting to upgrade my mill for a couple of years and finally found one in the right price and most of the features that I wanted. It took two days to get the old battle axe out and the new one moved in. My little Haas now has a big brother. make it nice for inletting stocks for bottom metal. I don't have to open the windows and worry about hitting the stock on the sheet metal. I also added a Nice HRT-210 4th axis so now both machines have the capabilty when needed and programs swap back and forth with out having to reformat.

Very Cool indeed!

I ran two just like this for a number of years and loved it. I can not even imagine what it would be like to have one of these let alone two of them for my hobby!

Well done

Re: New Mill

I don't know what to be more envious of, having the mill or a shop big enough to house it! Never mind having two of them.

Well done!
