    Some people here need to chill out a little. The guy is frustrated that his machine is not perfect and that's understandable when you lay down 8 grands on it. Don't take it so personally, he is not...

    Actually I am pretty sure you can change it in the configuration file (I remember playing with it a long time ago, until I decided it was better left unchanged). It may void the warranty, though I am...

    It may accelerate wear and tear but I would not be too worry. You can change the bearings anyway.

    Here is a review of the Kx3. Unless you can get it for much cheaper, I would not even consider it. Probably a good machine but certainly not as good as a 770.

    If you need to replace your worn out endmill with a new one, it is faster with an endmill holder than with a collar. Not that I care about the issue in any way, just trying to help you getting it.

    Smithy also sells a TTS holder that takes 3/4 shanks. They are cheap too, like $15. I have a couple from them (not the 3/4 though) and they are fine.
