    All the machines Im looking at are not dual voltage, and I dont want to mess around with re wiring and replacing motors

    bumping this back to the top, really hoping to find a newer square head m2200 to get the higher spindle speeds. I also met with my electrian this morning and the cost of adding a 440 transformer make buying one of these less appealing, so only looling for 220v machines

    Not yet, hoping to find one owned by someone. I have found one on ebay that is a contender.

    Im Looking to replace my old beat down W&S #3 with another of the same, but hopefully in much better condition. Im fine wither either a round or newer square head machine. Only requirements are good to great condition and bar feeder. 208v-220v three phase preferred, but will get a transformer if...

    Turning long tapers (42-47")

    I just went through this whole process, having to taper 350 spindles in silicon bronze. I also ended up building an extra long taper attachment for my Leblond lathe, but built a bearing block that travels on the carriage just in front of the cutter, works incredibility well, I can prep the ends...

    Folks I need a saw- Cold or Miterband?

    Bandsaw is the way to go if you are only going to have one saw. Id agree with cyanidekid and to try and spring for a true double miter band saw in the 6" to 10" range. I also cut a ton of stainless bar and tubing and process it through both a band and cold saw. We upgraded our pivoting 10"...

    WTB-2 axis CNC LATHE

    I’m about ready to take a step away from my W&S #3 turret lathes and buy my first CNC lathe. I’m currently looking a getting a new Doosan Lynx 2100lb, but dont really feel great about spending 80k. So I’d thought I’d look into some used ones. Most of our parts can be run from 2” or smaller bar...

    Camworks/solidworks cam in person help/zoom?

    I’m completely new to CAM/Cnc and am trying to learn solidworks cam that comes with solidworks so that I can use the haas vf4 I just bought. I’ve done a bunch of tutorials but really learn best by talking with someone. Is anyone in the southern New England are willing to provide some support...

    Welding and fixture tables.... was getting ready to order this one but

    I don’t know how anyone could compare these to an acorn or t slot table, the only similarities are they are both flat. After that there is about 100 years of improvement. I have a 1m x 1m and 1.5m x 3m Bluco with a fairly complete tooling package and just love them both. The best part of the...

    Spindle runout issues

    Yeah, I think I’m just chasing my tail on this one. I’m one step above a hack trying to figure out what’s wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle. Runout is the same, no matter how the tool holder is clocked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    I can definitely do that, but I dont see how that can be affecting my run out issues in a static position. I have 2 tenths at the spindle and 3 thou at the tool holder with no load applied. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Spindle runout issues

    I just bought and tooled up a Fryer MB-14 as my first CNC. I’ve been chasing a run out issue and it’s driving me mad. We are getting 0.003-0.004” runout at the tool and our surface finishes are horrible. The machine is from 2003 and is in what appears to be decent condition with the exception of...

    Marvel Old 8 blade tension?

    The pawl is the little cylinder to the left. You should just turn the tendon shaft until it drops down and stops moving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can you recommend a metal finishing machine?

    I’m sorry, but I think what you are asking for does not exist. There are timesavers and debuting machines for flat goods but not much for 3D objects. I wonder if just a sand blaster conveyor would work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
