go for sl20
I currently have a Haas TM-2 & a VF-3 mill. I am ready for the lathe but am unsure of which one to go for. Any suggestions or input on either would be really helpful. We are a job shop, so high production isn't a big factor at this time. Thanks in advance.
I know you are upgrading your shop. If you are selling any old used Haas please let me know. We need it for south america. please pm or send email to email@example.com
we have 4 sl20s in are shop for 5yrs and they seem to run great!

I got a SL20 , this is a nice machine , this isn`t just a toy like TM`s ( I got one too )
We run parts from 10 pcs and this isn`t too difficult. I know how difficult work can be without property covers (TM) and I know how coolant is treated by a chuck (SL) I never ever go to TL`s. What I miss in the SL is a parts catcher ( don`t like to dig out small parts in the chip auger ) and a live tooling.
