I wish I would have seen those end mills for sale.  I spent almost all of my free time between seminars taking pictures of models.

I walked away with some loot also:
8"x18" CNC ready machine.






I paid a lot less than asking price.

These machines were not properly protected on the overseas trip so they
have some rust scattered about.  Dealer just wanted to unload rather than
sell a "blem" machine.  The rust spots cleaned up nice.

They come ready for servos and controller.
Also supplied is a second set of ballscrews and thrust bearings to replace
the ones on the machine that have some rust spots.

Spindle motor is 3/4 hp inverter duty.  2000 rpm spindle.

The hole on the left accepts a 15" monitor.  It looks like the whole
control can easily be incorporated into the cabinet.  The dealers machine
had a huge electronics cabinet on back. 

Toolpost has a 3 phase motor to rotate it.  Also has a position sensor.
Figuring out how to make that work will probably be the biggest problem
in this retrofit.

It would be something to bring this machine back next year and have it
banging out parts running Mach, while it sits next to their $14,000 machine.

Have to finish my latest 4 axis mill first....

As far as the small stuff goes, I was most impressed with the Luhrs display right in the center of the building, at the partition.
These actually RUN !
Notice the penny for size reference.
Fantastic to say the least.

The Cabin Fever Expo 2010 site links back here for the Mach Seminar. Is it going to be held again in January? If so, when can we sign up?

We have not settled on an exact plan, but I do not think we will do a full Mach seminar as last year. There will be at least a couple of 1 hr seminars, and I will be running a demo of some kind.

Note the CNC workshop that was held in Illinois has been re-created, and wlil be in Ann Arbor (outside Detroit) Michigan in June 2010. That will be a full week long event and Im sure there will be a lot of Mach sessions. Its all in early planning stages now

Ron,
Keep us informed as it progresses. I thought the full seminar was a good last year at Cabin Fever.
