Looks like we have a used one coming in 3-4 weeks. maybe 5 years old, not sure. Just read theyv'e been in buissiness since 1908. Wild. I bet they built the machines that built the machines that killed 50,000 americans in the phillipeans in ww2.
Since BD doesn't let his posts be archived, it's difficult to search for his past comments. But he's been talking about his running of at least one (and possibly more) Roku Roku's for many years, probably almost a decade. So you can safely assume his comment was simply sarcastic.

Well he stole another company's patented technology, got sued for patent infringement and lost. So he had to pay millions. Then he decides to steal his money back from the government though tax fraud, got caught, convicted, and is sitting in jail.

Something like that. He was stealing money at any rate. When he got caught he threatened to turn the lot of them in if they fired him or turned him in. I have the indictment somewhere. It lays out the government's version of events in a convincing manner.
Why are people in leadership roles always surprised that their employees behave exactly like they do?
Well Haas did give them all a very small percentage for participating in his fraud. Guess the VP figured committing numerous felonies for Haas was worth a little larger percentage of the take, no honor among thieves and all. You are right Haas opened the door and the VP just followed his lead thinking Haas couldn't/wouldn't do anything about it if Haas caught him.
Sounds no better or worse than a Fadal w/Fanuc 18i-M control. The only thing the Haas has over a Fadal w/Fanuc control is less buttons to push during setups. But that could be resolved with a tool presetter so it's a wash.
On the GR-658N's w/32K RPM spindles, Z moves a bit after extended use at real high RPMs. Thermal spindle growth. Since you're cutting graphite there isn't much of a need to be running sustained speeds over 25K RPM anyway so you likely won't notice it much. X-Y location was never worse than .0002" (TIR) all day at any RPM.
Attainable feeds are going to be dictated largely by the shapes your cutting. If you think you're going to be racing around 1/4" dia electrodes at 200IPM and doing it accurately, it ain't going to happen.
