    Look what I found.....

    ....Dunno if I can get it or not, it has 7 days left and is at $10

    Lots to look at there

    Wonder what it will go for, it is in the WRONG category, so I might have a chance at getting it at a reasonable price?

    One thing, it is in Osaka, that means at least $200 for shipping

    It looks well used but not abused.

    Oh yeah, that would fit, no problem, I might have to take it apart, due to how much it all weighs, the electric hoist is rated at 120 Kg (260 lbs).

    Have to look at the much abused tool fund.....

    Need to sell some clamps!

    I would love to have that!! Don't let it get away.

    Two tools I want/could use are a mill and a metal lathe. Not even looking but man would they be handy rebuilding these machines!! But I keep remind myself my shop it almost complete and I don't expect to be restoring many more.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,

    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Beside my sink there is a stack of shelving, that really, if I think about it, do I really need it?

    As it is, I have way too much junk laying around the Dungeon, it I don't use if for a year or two, and it is not stuff like rough pieces of wood, I wonder why the heck I'm keeping it in the Dungeon?

    I could move a lot of that stuff over into the Annex and free up a spot for that milling machine.

    I'm going to watch closely and see how high it goes, if it stays reasonable, I'll go for it, but, I think it might just go stupid expensive, as I've been watching these things for about two years, and they usually don't go cheap, but who knows.

    What would you guys that could use one, or want one pay for it?

    Cheers!

    PS, Greg, I saw them gloves sticking out of the top cover too and wondered what that was about



    Cheers!

    Look what I found.....

    Stu,

    That looks like a very desireable machine indeed. Hope you do get it.

    I have to repeat Mark's question, "Where the heck are you gonna put it?" That looks like it'll have a decently large footprint. Do I recall you saying you have 3 phase in the dungeon?

    But I DO like it, and wish I had one, too. I do have an older Duracraft (Taiwan made) 16 speed, 22" swing, floor drill press with a compound vise on a "production table", (coolant too) that I use for light milling. It has enough beef to hold up pretty well, but not like that one you're looking at.

    I'll be watching for it.

    Aloha, Tony

    Well, if anyone can make it fit and work somewhere, it's you Stu.

    Hope you get it and get it cheap.
    Thanks, Mark.
