    those are cool Chip! I don't know why shirts like that always have a huge image on the front though, wish they'd put it on the back

    Who needs work. Just being able to look at that thing sitting in your shop is worth the price of admission!

    Cool t-shirt by the way. None with my but I might grab the one linked anyway

    There's lot of power there. Things can go wrong rapidly if you're not careful. One place I worked at had a similar machine and they were using it in conjunction with a large electro magnetic table to mill some fancy plates.

    The shop was being painted by some outside painters and one of them was looking for a place to plug his ghetto blaster in. You can see where this is going. Without asking he just pulled out the nearest plug - which happened to be the plug for the electro magnet.

    I was working in the next bay and I heard a tremendous crash, looking around I saw one of the plates flying down the shop at testicle height. Luckily nobodies testicles got in the way.

    The gearing in the head came in for some expensive damage though.

    Be careful, regards Tyrone.

    Nice machine! It basically is the vertical version of my #4. On my rotary table there is another piece of shaft that hooks to the power drive that allows it to telescope.

    Getting this big girl away from the wall, out the door and on the trailer was no small feat!
    Going back to hopefully find some tooling and the rotary table shaft

    Hi Keith, do you still support the " Kearns-Richards " line of horizontal boring machines ?

    Regards Tyrone.

    I ran a No. 4 high-speed almost exactly like that. Most powerful mill I ever used. Had to lobby the boss for almost a year to be allowed to buy decent setup hardware, as the BP-sized stuff being used in that shop wouldn't hold the workpiece under a real cut.

    Haul a thing like that down the street in front of a row of machine shops and you'd need a mop to get the pecker tracks off.

    24-inch-rotary-table-1.jpg24-inch-rotary-table.jpgLooks like you t a 20 or 24 inch circular milling table. manual Pub. no. 2341 Serial no. will be stamped on the top of right clamping flange, like this sample. CUD - 5R. Ask if they have indexing plates. They may be hidden in a drawer.There is a drive shaft extension. It has a u joint on each end.

    You can request to have it put on the back. It's really not a problem.

    Just send me an email. [email protected]
