    Another Couple "look what I found" things.....

    Both of these on Yahoo auction, I kind of troll through there looking for neat stuff, and looking for my next project

    This is a nice big slider, they want 180,000 yen or about $1500
    It is a well known brand, and I'm sure has a ton of life left in it, but a little large for the Dungeon

    Next is this thing, I guess it is a rip saw of some sort?

    they want about $800 for this one, again, the space issue, but for me it is neat to see this kind of stuff here, and to know that it IS out there.......

    The second one is indeed an inline rip saw. The chain conveyor on the bottom draws the workpiece through and you get left with a nice straight edge. The good ones have multirip cpacity so you can rip several components at the same time in a single pass. They tend to get very big (you would probably find it easier to fit the dungeon in it than it in the dungeon) very expensive and very heavy. Unsurprisingly three factors that also mean they get very expensive. If you could get the one you show for $800 or so it would be a bargain. I would love one but space and money - always space and money!!

    Love that sliding table on the table saw. I don't do much with sheet goods but would be nice when I do!

    Wonder if the second one could be a moulder? Of course it could be a rip saw too.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Well let me tell you gents, if I had the space, I'd FIND the money

    Nice to dream just the same eh?

    And if I had the money to get the space then I would find the money to get the inline rip. As it is I have a space marked out for one, it just has six more productive tools sitting in it at the moment.

    Tokai?

    Don't they make the cheap Fender guitar copies?

    Looks the wrong way round to me. Are there a lot of left-handed people in Japan?

    Nice piece of kit - bit on the pricey side by UK standards though.

    Yeah Stuart, nice stuff. I'm dreamin' a lot of nice machinery, but when I wake up I'm back to reality.

    That’s a seriously big yo-yo measuring out the ripsaw!

    I love the slider. That base casting is a work of art.
    It must weigh a ton!

    I love all that big old machinery, but unfortunately its not the space that really gets me. The money thing, that is always an issue, but there are ways around that. (Raid the Mrs Savings account ) but for me anyway, its the 3 phase issue. I am miles and miles from 3 phase power.

    By the way Stu...and a stupid question here, what does the Japanese do for power. 120, 220 in standard plugs and what about 3 phase?
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
