    Default New (to me) Machine day

    Well I got it. It is here, wired and running.

    Now I just need to learn how to set up the tool locations and install a program and we should be turning tomorrow.

    And finally in the building and on the floor.

    Wiring, Air, hydraulics, coolant tank all functioning proper.

    I'm happy. It is adding cnc turning to our capability and for an old beast, I'm hoping she runs for another 3-5 years till I can afford to replace her.

    Dang, that truck looks to be in great condition!

    My '74 didn't have floor boards and had a wood flat bed in '84, and that's almost 40 yrs ago now!

    Congrats! New machine day is always exciting. The whole week really, in my opinion.

    I rent my shop space next to an auto repair facility so they always have a lot of cars to look over. Early 60's Imperial, 55 Chevy, 28 chevy race car conversion, and just a bunch of really cool stuff. Usually something really odd about ever 4-6 weeks.

    I have owned a '70 F-250 4x4 for 20 years now. It's spent all but a few weeks of it's life outside in the wet NW weather. The only rust it has is in the front cab mounts from dirt not getting cleaned out and around the battery box on the inner fender. The 67-79 Ford trucks hold up really well out here for some reason.
