    sharpen reamer cone tip from pipe threading machine?

    How is it different than setting up any taper reamer for sharpening? Tilt the workhead until an indicator swept along the cutting edge remains stationary ( or at zero ). Index and support the cutting edge with a grinder finger. Grind primary and second bevel like any other reamer.

    Well weathered vintage machinery at auction near me( smith Silk planer, #5 becker brainard mill, #2 vert cinci mill, lots of old blacksmith stuff)

    Better late then never. Beats finding an intact machine shop a developer bought. He has the excavator operator tear the roof off and then plucked each machine out with the bucket and thumb, placing them "gently" in the scrap dumpster.

Another lathe that's three times the price of the first machine, but half the distance. You expect the seller(s) to assess the bed and spindle wear for a prospective buyer...
