Dear List,

This is a little off topic for RP, but I felt some would have some
insight for leads in the area.

I am interested to learn more about 5 axis milling. Particularly the
large scale applications (I've seen web sites with machine build
envelopes of 10x5x5(z) feet.)

Whats the current wisdom on 5 axis mills vs 5 axis lathes--aren't they
essentially the same thing at that point?

Can anyone give a lead on companies doing this kind of work? Maybe a 5
axis large scale bureau? Any leads are most appreciated.
