Ok I think I've got this thread started in the right place now I posted this on a different page so if yall see it its basically the same question ! Does anyone have any experience with this machine ? I'd like to hear any pro's or con's about it ! I've been working with one for over 3 years now and ran into a few problems and a few advantages ! The machine I use is set up with a very fast swing arm tool changer , coolant threw spinal , portable double head 4th axis indexer , and the FANUC Series Oi-MB software !

Ok well I guess I'm not 100% sure what this page is about ! Could someone explain the ( digital machines ) ? I do a lot of work with hand tools in my shop along with manual mills,engine lathes and even more programming and set up of CNC machines ! Perhaps I'm asking a question that isn't pertained to this page ? Thanks!

OH, its about CNC machines, in general. But you are asking about a specific machine with a specific control that the chances of anyone having one or have ran one is slim to next to none.
On the PM forum there is a very good chance of someone having run one of these machines.
Remember, this is a home shop forum. Some of us do have commercial equipment, but not the majority.
