    Sorry guys, I just saw the notifications that you wanted the manuals. I emailed both of you, and plan to get the documents scanned and will have them available to you ASAP. My apologies for the huge delay... I haven't visited the forum for a few months.

    I have a manual already scanned if anyone needs it. Got mine courtesy of bosleyjr, and thanks very much again sir. I too would still like to see what Matt has to see if there's any additional info.

    Happy to share, Lee! The thanks should really go to Jim though. I couldn't find squat until I ran across that old 2009 PM post from him and inquired about it. I'll set up a dropbox file and link it here shortly.

    Very pleased to help. A pic of the renovated table woudl be cool.

    This actually brings up a question. In my table, there's a hole in the base, and it leads from the oil sump to the top of the base at the bearing surface for the rotary top. This hole has a wick in it. I was going to clean my table out completely, remove any rust, repaint the painted surfaces, and reassemble. One issue is that wick. Is this a common item? I can't find anything to replace it. Suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks Bosley!

    I can't answer about the wick for you, as I haven't had mine apart (yet, anyway).

    I would like to see some examples of how to make the most of this thing, though. Ive seen several comments along the lines of "you can make anything" etc, including in this thread, but some photos or descriptions would help a tonne!

    Thanks again,

    Ler

    I hate to open myself up for a possible shipping nightmare but "if" I had an Advance rotary like the one in the OP's picture, what would a fair price be?

    Jim I haven't done any refurbishing to my own table other than getting the stuck worm disengagement loose. It was already in near new condition other than a little worn paint. Backlash on the worm is right at 2 divisions and backlash on the cross slide screws about . 002" - .003" - so no work to do for me.

    I don't have any sample work to show yet, just got mine not too long ago, but some things you can do that are pretty handy: use an endmill to circular interpolate instead of bore; use a woodruff style cutter to cut internal snap ring grooves down in a bore; mill internal or external hex, square, rectangular (or any other shape) pocket or protrusion with any size corner radii you like; cut eccentric external or internal cam shapes... The list goes on. One of my initial projects is to resurface a cast iron wheel hub for a dump truck that I welded to repair a brake disc pilot fit. After that I want to make a new wing cam for my Black Diamond drill grinder, just to do it, won't save me big money or anything.

    And Bluechip, shipping one of these puppies would cost an arm and a leg, they are 250+ pounds. I'm guessing selling local would be much better for you in terms of price you could get. I managed to snag mine locally for $250.

    If you make me a cracking good deal you will not need to ship as I will be happy to pick it up!

    Moonlight: see bluechip's post in the tooling for sale forum. I'd call that a cracking good deal

    That was a good deal. It was also already claimed when both of you posted!

    Yeah I would have gone for that! I did leave a post that I will take it if it falls through.

    Yep that's for sure. I was somewhat shocked the first time I tried to move mine!

    Yes, heavier than I can move by myself...

    And at 10" tall, it puts the controls on my Van Norman's knee way too low for comfort. I need to build a foot tall pallet for under the mill before I can plonk the rotary on there (and hopefully never take it off again!)
