Both of the ShopBot desktops in their custom shop were using Aspire.

Thanks Gerry!
VERY specialized for it's purpose, AND expensive in other words.
I've wondered at times, getting something with more than my HSD 18,000RPM...but the trade-offs to get 50K?....I'll stick with mine for now :D
Interesting how it was automatic tool change on the SHANK, AND had a spring loaded head!
Barely understood all of my Dad's Big Iron$$$ CNCs(all 9 of them),and was totally lost on the one that needed a new building with a 29'roof and worked with either vac or oil filled cutting chamber.
I know a Lot..about a Little!
I appreciate it Gerry!
