Do you plan on participating or just selling?
Participating? As in using the boards for activities other than pluggin' my merch? Absolutely. I found a gentleman on these boards that was knowledgeable regarding a Tiger-5 control for an old Sharnoa I coudn't get up and running and I helped another gentleman by pointing him in the right direction in having his ballscrews rebuilt.

(Hows that for an over-caffeinated Smurf?)
Wow! This is exactly the 2nd machine I've posted in the 'wanted & for sale' thread. The only two machines I posted were machines that I picked because I thought they were somewhat rare & sought after by enthusiasts. I certainly didn't post a Bridgeport Series 1 and nor would I. The 1st machine was an Aciera F5 and now this machine. But, regardless... I was unclear that dealers were unwelcome. I will refrain from posting in the future. But the rules do state clearly "And be kind to each other". Does GTFO fall under that category? Sorry my plug on a public forum upset you so much Chaf. Have a great weekend. Btw.. price on the Hardinge is $20,000.
There, there; of course you're not going to be banned for not posting a price. I've debated with the site owner and I think with Mebfab, the moderator, that people who bring items to sell are meeting a need here whether they rack up a big post count or not and the response has been PM is a community first and a market second. He's accused me of being a "blue smurf" for trying to get people to be kinder - thus the parenthetical comment at the end. "Nice" here is a relative term - spend some time here and you'll see what I mean. I will say I really don't care for the sales 101 POR approach or the jargon as I pointed out, but I'm not at all upset. The "GTFO" was generic slang of disbelief, not an imperative command. You have a nice weekend too.
Why? Your posts are interesting.

What tooling is included? Are their pictures of the tooling? More pictures at all? Do hlv-h-em lathes really sell for $20K???
Personally I have no problem if you post nice machines like this. As long as the price is included.
Yeah. EM's retail between 18-22K depending on condition, tooling, year.. etc. The higher price tag as compared to a standard HLV-H is due to its rarity. Standard HLV-H machines only utilize an Imperial thread gear box, while this machine has dual Inch/Metric. Out of fear of upsetting an already over-caffinated Blue Smurf.. I won't want to use the work "cream-puff", so I'll use another "used car salesman" term... cherry. And.. she really is. We purchased from the original owner. Original paint, DRO, faceplace, 4-jaw, 5C's, Live & dead centers, Drill chuck and something I haven't seen in years. An indexing turret attachment that replaces the top slide and essentially turns the machine into an HC Chucker. Kinda cool. Not sure what the EM's went for new, but a standard HLV-H last time I checked is $45,000 from the factory. Will post additional pics asap.

Subsequent calls after the auction to buy it went unheeded....he just decided he had to keep it.
Re the Hardinge turret, yep, same one I had. Cost a fortune new but nobody seems to care.
