    New horizontal bandsaw recommendations needed... Budget max $5k-$6k

    i have an ellis 1600. i love the saw. i like that the head pivots instead of having to pivot it the material. i originally wanted a saw with coolant but have never had any issues with cutting dry plus there is way less mess and cleanup with no coolant. it’s also easy to set up a stop on...

    Weld sequence for this part?

    i would tank every thing together with 4 tacks on each joint. i would preheat it with a weed burner torch and weld the ends and work from one end to the other. i don’t think it will warp too much with some preheat since the tubes will be trying to warp into each other. the other thing you...

    AMERICAN Tool Works Lathe serial number 57691

    i’m assuming there is a tapper pin holding the handle to the shaft. as far as the handle it self, it looks like a slotted screw in the side of it. it’s possible that it’s just gummed up witch stuff from over the years of use.

    American 20" lathe apron mounted leadscrew reverse not working

    i have a 16x54 pacemaker and it has the reverse on the apron as well. on mine there the switching of the lead screw is in the feed/speed gear box and not in the headstock. im assuming yours is the same way. if you follow the rod that the lever hooks to, you can follow it to the side and...

    plasma multiple pierce

    whats the pierce delay, i know on mine if its set at .02 or lower it does the same thing. i set it a little higher and it has no issues. also make sure the clamp is on the material and not just the table.

    why go to the trouble to make an insert, i have used keenserts on a few four wheeler's that had issues like that. easy to put in and they cant spin.

    Bead roller for thicker aluminum sheet (0.100-0.125")?

    thats just what i was thinking. pullmax, thrump, lenex, should be able to find someone around that that has one. I have a trumpf and i would bet it would have no problem doing that thick of material

    True-Trace For Sale

    looking for K&T rotary head mill

    I was looking for a K&T rotary head mill and figured i would see if any one around here was getting rid of one before i look other places. I would prefer that it has a dro and a power knee on it but beggars don’t get to be choosers. I did see a couple on ebay but i’m guessing that’s it’s just...

    Pullmax or similar wanted

    I have a Trumpf 701. it’s a very well built machine. as far as moving parts go, they are a super simple and way over built machine. the head has all the moving parts in it and ther is basically just 2 off center rings inside of it. one is controlled by the motor the other by a hand dial...

    Pullmax or similar wanted

    if your looking for a machine for shaping metal i would look at a Trumpf. They have a lot more features that i think have an advantage over the pullmax. I like that the head moves up and down on a foot pedal vs a hand lever. that lets you hold the work with both hands. you can also...
