    Looks remarkably like one of the chinese machines to me, the omni mini maybe: https://m.alibaba.com/product/601949...nc-router.html

    Get a Sneak Peek! The Haas Desktop Mill is Coming Soon! - Haas Automation, Inc.



    Must say after seeing the title and then the Haas name I was a little disappointed in what was unveiled, he says "we've been developing" and "our engineers designed the desktop mill" but I don't see anything new or different to the typical as linked above...

    What did these amateur eyes overlook ?

    Surely they have the power in every sense of the word to deliver something of a higher calibre ☹️

    Snap! In my view all this is about is trying to get the younger generation familiar with a Haas controller so the new generation want to operate Hass controlled machines because that's what they are familiar with! I see it as a simple cheap way into training and marketing ploy for Haas controllers and no more.

    Thats's exactly why they are doing this.! . . . But it will backfire on them because while Haas are marketing it for use with soft materials the users will not stop at that and try to cut harder materials, then the true nature of the beast will rear it's ugly head.

    To me the idea is a good one but Haas will regret the choice of using Chinese Crap.

    Haasholes - it surely is a chinese machine in a purty box. It can machine plastics and wax and probably marzipan and chocolate too.

    What have I just watched?

    I guess they've got to make money to pay for their F1 team some how, especially since their co-sponsor has been shown to be a sham...

    No, the Rich Energy shysters.
    Their logo was removed quite quickly after they lost their trademark case against Whyte - https://whyte.bike/pages/stag

    Didn't know about this but I had spotted the Whyte Logo as I have a Whyte 46 and just thought Whyte bikes sponsored the team.!

    The guy behind Rich Energy was quite a character.
    I had a chat to Whyte's marketing guy at an event after the court case, and it's cost them well into 6 figures, but IIRC they can only claim either 25 or 50k in costs back, but they don't expect to see a penny. Last I heard Rich Energy had been 'sold' to a company that specialises in preparing companies for insolvency.

    The consensus was the guy behind Rich Energy was playing everybody off against each other to establish the brand.
    He got a million tins made*.
    He went to the supermarkets saying that this will be the big new drink, as they've got a big sponsorship deal about to be signed.
    He's then gone to Haas saying he's got customers lined up, and they've had a million tins produced.
    Hass have agreed to the sponsorship.
    He's then gone back to the supermarkets and said they've got a big international sponsorship deal.

    Unfortunately, by that point, the court case was well known about, so rather than write off the million tins he'd had 'produced', he thought Whyte would rollover and not defend their trademark, and when's that not happened, his only option was to lie about the source of the logo.

    *Apparently the million tins do/did exist, so he could legally make the claim over a million tins have been made, It's just that they were never actually filled..
