    I'm looking at getting one of these to run some checks for the replacement motor on my lathe. Is one better than the other?

    I was going to use the FS wizard but the online version doesn't seem to support turning.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you probably need to trial them both and see what suits you, I ended up with HSM Advisor because it suited me best but others have told me that they like G-Wizard best,
    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    As Nick says, trial them both.

    I personally preferred HSM Advisor, as it just seemed easier/more intuitive to use, however I've never tried GW since buying a HSM license several years ago. And I'm even less inclined to do so, since cnccookbook became one big G-wizard advert.

    Not only that g-wizards requires Adobe air to run and an internet connection. Adobe air is one big piece of crap, worse than Norton and takes over your computer

    Thanks, I was going to try the demos but thought is was worth asking the question.

    Do they sneak Adobe air in as part of the install then? I cant see any reference to it. might not bother with the trial and see how I get on with HSM.
