    Skyfire CNC in China is the factory and they are quite busy and do not respond to emails very well, let me know if you have any questions or need information about pricing and I will get you going.

    Jan, I will email you shortly. I am interested in an SVM-2VMC Mini Industrial w/ 4th axis and tool changer. I assume that comes with the industrial controller or is that an option?

    Re: Skyfire CNC owners?

    Hi guys I have some good news for you. The G95 code does work in the Skyfire VMC2 with the EC200 VFD controller. I've tried it at 200, 300, and 400 RPMs while tapping a 1/4"-20 thread and using a Feed rate of .050" F.050 It cut perfectly at all RPMs without changing the Feedrate. Just make sure if you use the G95 before the M29 line of code that you do a G94 after the G80 so it goes back to ipm (inches per minute) mode. G95 is inches per rev (ipr). It will ruin your day if you don't cancel it after tapping. Here's a sample.

    O1040 (TAP TEST 2-25-18)
    (T2 D=0.204 CR=0. TAPER=118DEG - ZMIN=-0.5113 - DRILL)

    Nice, thanks for the heads up. I hope I won't be waiting too much longer for mine.

    How fast does it stop and reverse? Is there much overshoot or all nice and tight?

    It seems nice and tight but I do not have anything to compare it to. I'm happy.

    Seems like most of the machines hitting the US aren't working properly. At this point I wouldn't want my cash floating around China for a year to get something that doesn't work new from the factory

    Best put your cash in a tin box under the bed and hope the next POTUS doesn't foul up the economy and put a machine from a foreign builder out of your reach.

    Where's your sources for that?

    Every owner I've seen seems to be perfectly happy with their machine?

    And the lead time is less than half of that. Closer to a quarter, sometimes quicker depending on spec.

    Pristine.........I get my kicks from watching the program make the wheels go round as I want it.........but I'm getting some ideas that might generate a rush of blood to cerebellum and make me commit it to a cutting exercise.
