    LOOKING TO BUY CRAFTSMAN 12'' METAL LATHE ...QUICK CHANGE GEARBOX
    this guy is getting annoying. has been posting the same request for the last 2-3 years.
    i would spend the time to design and pay a friend of mine 10$ to 3-d print one just to make him go away lol...
    Might be that guy deals in Craftsman and so put out feelers often to re stock.

    A fire carriage is just like the carriage on a metal lathe, but only has the handwheel to move along the bed, and is much less precise/light duty.

    Here is what I meant.

    I paid $10k for glass lathe, made in 1984ish.

    I paid $2k for metal lathe, made in 1979.

    The glass lathe is just a cast iron bed, headstock and tailstock are almost the same so it essentially has 2 headstocks(just the tailstock moves though). It turns under 300 rpm. The only thing I could see really expensive on the machine are the headstock/tailstock bearings, since they have a 3-7/8" bore. Weighs about 2500 lbs with the stand. 1/3hp variable speed dc motor, belt and chain drive.

    The metal lathe is cast iron bed, with induction hardened tool steel ways. Coolant pump, full of hardened gears, expensive bearings, turns 2500 rpm. Magnetic brake, powerfeed X+Y, turns 2-184 threads per inch, also does metric. 1-3/16" bore, weighs 3400 lbs. 4hp gear head drive.

    The metal lathe is much more machine, and much more accurate. I also know a lot more metal lathes have been made in the last 50 years than glass lathes.

    I have a Litton glass blowing lathe I've bee meaning to list for sale. Bought it year and a half ago intending to learn glass blowing on a lathe, but owing to family issues and not knowing anyone who could teach me, I have decided to sell it. Just haven't got around to taking pics etc. It's complete with chucks , table , hoses , gas lines and all the connections and eletrical panel/connections.

    Maybe it's a metaphor? Like the "application support" doesn't have to fully engage the taper to "drive results"?

    I think there's more to it than what you see! The guy with the pen is holding the wing of a fly down, while the other is ejecting the tool holder to squash it.

    Who knows what might happen with a 5 pound tool dropping 6 inchs. You can tell from their expressions that those guys are serious about their break time.

    And the guy with the pen isn't wearing safety glasses. Protecting the noggin, but there's no brain there to save...

    Somebody save us from advertising folks who know nothing about what they're selling!

    There's a guy here in Connecticut who has been trying to sell the same Starrett surface plate for $350 for probably at least five years, maybe longer.

    He's a local joke with machinist in the area.

    I saw the video in the links below and thought of this old thread on glassblowing lathes. Almost exactly a year old. It's a guy hand making nixie tubes. The first link is the whole video, the rest are the portions of the video that show the use of the glassblowing lathe.

    A year ago or so, a local fellow had at least two of those glass-blowing lathes,purchased from one of the college's surplus, complete with the carriage and gas manifolds, and chucks advertised on CL for $10K I think it was. I met him at the sale of some other tools later on and he had no problem selling those. If one is doing specialty lab and technical glass work, guess it's a useful investment if not in the business of modifying machines. Those glass lathes have very large spindle bores and chucks designed for glass and low speeds.

    I have even called people when I am going to be 15 minutes late to look at something, they seem to react strangely to me being courteous. Also if I have scheduled multiple stops for a like item, but buy on the first stop, I will call the others and tell them I bought blah,blah,blah for $1500 earlier that day and am no longer interested. I am the weirdo that treats others how I would like to be treated.
