Hass seems to have a good service organization and that can be a big deal if you have a breakdown on  a critical machine and can't repair it yourself.

The seller who is the original owner says that the machine is tight and was in good operating condition when it was pulled from service 10 years ago.

The machine was used primarily for mold making back in the day, so I'm pretty sure it has full 3 axis.

The main decision maker is having cold feet, now and thinks it would be a better plan to buy something 4x as expensive and 20years newer, that would have a serviceable control as is. (and he may be right.)  But I was kind of looking forward to the challenge.

Now He thinks this might be a better deal for us.

Haas have lightweight linear roller guideways which causes short working life.  I was astonished to see the same size guideways on a 10 Hp Haas milling machine we got at work as I have on my pick and place machine which has no cutting forces at all!  People who use them do love their controls, however.
