    Re: coolant bleed down problem

    Thanks for the follow-up post. So many times, we never hear what happened.

    I might do this to my VF-2. I've had problems keeping the tapers clean on the tools and a good chunk of the problem is...

    Re: tm-1 and a seven foot door

    You have NINE foot ceilings? I can't speak to the TM-1 but, you may be able to get away with a VF1 or 2 in that much ceiling. I'm almost positive the TM-1 would be fine as well.

    As for moving it...

    That's a damn good idea! Thanks for that.
  4. Re: Looking for lexan cover for my Mini Mill

    Sorry. A guy had one for about six months on the Inland Empire Craigslist. I've searched ever since you posted this thread and it's never been relisted. He either gave up or sold it.

    Re: VF8 with Trt210 5-Axis

    I'm also no expert on 5-axis but, I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night. :)

    Re: speed and feed recomendations

    Aluminum? With flood coolant and a 0.5" endmill, you should be running at whatever max RPM your machine has. In my machines, that's 10K RPM, A 2-flute at a very conservative 0.003" per tooth should...
  7. Re: VF2 Spindle Drive Fault F, Falls out of high gear

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, that does indeed sound like a bad vector drive. I had a similar failure on my 2004 VF-2. Mine only had the 123 error, not the second one. It turned out to be...

    Bump! Next week. This is a must-do event. It's also great for engineering and manufacturing students to see. The factory tour is amazing.

    Re: fixture offset Z values

    On a 1994 machine, the settings may be more basic than what I'm used to, so I can't point you to a specific number. Page through the settings pages and look at each one. There are a couple in there...

    Re: VF-1 Height (head down)

    I didn't personally do it. The Haas tech was here for the delivery. If the z-axis is parked properly against a block of wood or the spindle shipping bracket, the screw shouldn't move when the motor...

    Wait, why aren't you using the probe to set the Z height?

    How were the tool lengths set, using the Renishaw presetter or somewhere else?

    Yeah, I'm afraid that buying a used tool room mill, cutting a hole in the wall and replacing it after installation would be cheaper than a used Office Mill.
