She looks great. The appearance is stunning, the riggers, the machinists, the boss all commented on how good she looks. People like the Babin pinstriping.
Thanks so much for our new Hardinge HLV-H-CNC retrofitted with the Centroid control. From day one we began cutting very tight tolerances on parts with the machine and it handled it without any problems. It is very nice to have a machine with great repeatability on close work. We were also very surprised at how easy it is to program the machine with so little effort and training. Great to have a machine that we can use as a manual lathe when just doing a simple and easy cut or just drilling a hole. Surprisingly, for a CNC, it feels like you are just as at home running it as you are on a regular Hardinge lathe. The machine is also very nice, from the looks of the machine to the fits and craftsmanship, it looks and works like it was a well thought out machine. I hope this machine lasts us a long time because we really enjoy it making our lives easier on some complicated parts. Thanks so much for a great lathe and I hope to do more business with you and your team in the future.
