We almost doubled the price of the machine with options though, we got the 4th axis, renshaw probe, auger, high flow coolant with programable nozzle, 64 gig mem, high speed machining, rigid tapping, HRT160 rotary table, tailstock and chuck. So my Son and I are looking forward to it the activation should be tuesday or wed.
    Does the high flow coolant require three phase power or will it run off of single phase?

    Re: new Haas TM1P has arrived!

    We are running single phase power and have had no problems at all with the Haas mill.

    Awesome! What work holding solutions are you using? I was thinking of getting orange vise 16” double station model for my future T1MP purchase. What do you like and dislike as far as the mill and the options you chose?

    Re: new Haas TM1P has arrived!

    I have no complaints about the Haas at all everything is working as it should. Setup time is greatly reduced with the probe / toolsetter and definetly lots of coolant to clear chips the ridgid tapping is a great feature We are just using the standard collets though with no problem so far (tapping collets have a square in them to hold the tap ) for a vice we went with the DX6 Crossover Anglock Vise by Kurt but onlyone so far.

    I have a 17" Orange on my Mini Mill.
    It is oriented lengthwise with the table on a sub plate.
    I like it alot. That vise does some neat tricks.
    No handle came with it so I use an old Craftsman ratchet and deep well socket. Works like it should have came with it.
    If you are going to mount it lengthwise like I did, then get the longer one. That will provide another inch or so in each station.

    For bigger stuff, just remove the fixed jaw mount and you have a large clamping capacity.

    Re: new Haas TM1P has arrived!

    Hi tom o, its been a few months, how are your thoughts on the TM-1P now?

    I've been looking at them as an upgrade from a Tormach. I have some parts that I could do that are 20-26" long, and the table travel size is perfect for.

    Hersh -

    coming from a pair of Tormachs (still have them - 1100S3 and 770M) I picked up a TM2P 2 weeks back, used.

    Machining nothing but 304SS on it since we plugged it in. Really a huge leap from the Tormach products - huge. I doubt you'd be disappointed with a TM1P. I'd recommend chip auger, WIPS if you can (I don't have it and wish I did), and 10k spindle (thought the 6k has been fine for me thus far). Have 4x Kurt DX6 across the table and will probably add a 5th soon. Cool machine, really.

    Enjoy,

    WW

    Thank you for the reply tom o and wildwhl. I think I'm going to move forward it it, and it sounds perfect for my needs. I have some more questions, but I'll post in a new thread so I don't hijack yours.

    Attachment 420692Attachment 420692Use it if you like or start another, one thing the installer told me was it needs a air dryer or void the warranty on the spindle we have been using the decasent type so far but I have just picked up a Drystream 25 cfm that will be fitted after the decasent filter / water trap.
