    Is this this One of the mills with tool sensor that is not spring-loaded?
    Just complete electrical circuit with tool touching a rigid hard metal surface?

    If so, I hate that design sensor!
    Cheapest piece of shit on the planet. Same with the Roland I think?
    At least put a $10 button on a spring to save tools.
    I never understood this design. :wacky:

    VHF is a great machine...till it breaks..and it will. They are not made very well in that sense. When they do break they need to be shipped directly to VHF in some cases this means going to Germany. From a professional standpoint You are better off going with Roland. The repairs for the most part can be done in house. Troubleshooting the issue is easier as well (if you have the service manual)

    [QUOTE = "Maks55, post: 21528, участник: 4256"] VHF - отличная машина ... пока она не сломается ... и это будет. В этом смысле они не очень хорошо справляются. Когда они разрываются, их необходимо отправить непосредственно на УКВ, в некоторых случаях это означает выход в Германию. С профессиональной точки зрения Вам лучше пойти с Роландом. Ремонт большей части может быть выполнен в доме. Устранение неполадок также проще (если у вас есть руководство по обслуживанию) [/ QUOTE]

    Спасибо за ответ! Мой друг

    Had vhf in old lab. Decent cam powering it not their out of the box shit and decent maintainence and we found it worked fine. No issues over like three years?

    Know a few folk destroyed theirs by milling metal and error in their cam calculations... as posted above - out to vhf for expensive repairs
