    The philosophy is, run the chit outta it for 3 years and by then the technology will have advanced so much that it is worth it to throw it away and buy another.Nothing wrong with that and I cover all of SoCal from Paso Robles down to Mexi and there are several THOUSAND shops making tons of money that prolly.

    In my experience, Okuma for turning, Mori Seiki for VMC

    Haas, Fadel, Mazak I have locally, they're cool. Crash it, now lets really talk about whats happening.

    Reset, move away from the problem, go again. Try that with a Fadel. aaah, NO!

    DanSinOhio "I won't even tell anyone what my tolerances are. It would be too embarrassing." OK, that's funny! Been there.

    edit: The cost. The tooling. The "gear up". All considerations, the cost.

    second edit: I have a mitsubishi lathe, RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!

    MORI SEIKI!

    It costs, box ways, absolute pulse coders, BT drive pins, ceramic spindle, induction head motor, I can be out around 10.000 RPM's in a second and a half. It's scary!

    The cost, its all that matters. Be careful, stay in budget.

    Doosan has really stepped up over the last few years.

    Had I been able to find one...I would have bought a Okuma. Lathe, not mill.

    Interesting turn of events since this thread started 9 years ago!
    As I was primarily Mori, then Okuma for turning. For basic mills and lathes now, I'm Okuma. Mori imo has gone down the white swirly hole on a lot of the machines, and service is non existent. Okuma has really stepped up the vmc line.
