This page will be used for information about using the Haas OM-2A CNC machine.
A brief guide to operating the mill can be found here. Note that this is only a brief guide, and not sufficient to establish proficiency in operating the machine. Please ask a trained user for help if you are unclear on any aspect of machine operation.
Note that the largest tool that may be used in the Haas is 3/8" diameter. The maximum tool projection is 3.5" from gauge line.
