    Someone has done an unusual (not blue or gray) paint job on a Hardinge HC chucker. He says he runs the three phase machine with a variable feed drive. That would be a variation on the VFD theme.

    Agree. 50 cents a lb for quality American Iron in good shape??? Are we pretending like these are no longer useful?

    I saw one locally for about $2k. Also appeared to me in good shape. Man I'd have loved to have it, but what a monster! Way to big. Maybe a horizontal, they'd fit through my garage doors.

    but a big old hunker mill with a 6" face mill can really cut the mustard, with even using carbide.

    Vs a CNC in nearly every measure? No. For a company/individual that needs to buzz down some plates hunks of steel a few times a week? Perfect.

    Yeah depends on the line of work. I make a comfortable living on all manual machines and homemade line boring equipment made on those manual machines over a few Sunday afternoons. Newest machine is a 1958(?) axleson lathe. “Covered”the mortgage this month already with a 1925Lehmann lathe, the k&t 4h and a 1981 Millermatic 200. Could be location though, no shortage of repair and small run work. Will say I turn down quite a bit of production run type stuff people call about, because of this though. And hired labor, no one wants to run the manual machines. Might break a sweat. Had on kid from local high school on retainer said he’d run a lathe before. After talking seemed he wasn’t lying. Had him run some parts for a small batch and expeditiously trashed a 12CK right off the bat. End of outside help!

    Yeah I hear the oil field areas and such do really good with 1 off job shops and mom/pop spots.

    Up here in Ohio you can’t find a place that will send you any kind of work without 30 years in the biz and 1 million in insurance even for old rusty bent shafts and janky weldments.

    Yeah slantershaker oil field stuff, wireline tools etc paraffin knives,BOPs, consumable shit, hydraulic cyl build and mods and quarry outfits with all their own unique mechanical bust downs. People who never grease pins, job security. Gambling on the barber Colman don’t quite have that one figured out. Sticking to spur gears. Can pencil 350/hr per part if you jump when they holler. Sometimes this means at 3am, they’re on the way to the barn (shop!) with a busted part, better git up. All how you want to live life. Just got regulate and not jump at everything. Last week guy drug up wanting 5 dozen pair of barrel hinges for his sale barn renovation. Random as hell. 2” 1018cr. W&S turret spit em out. Daub of moly and drop in a ball bearing. Mate M/F ends and done. Simple but profitable. All on the shitty Warner Swasey

    I get what you're saying, but I think CNC can be huge even for your situation.

    I don't make a living with manual mills and lathes. Not even close, but that work is all cash or I'm not interested and I really enjoy repair work.

    That said, the last time my Bridgeport had an endmill in it for something other than drilling out a broken HSS drill bit was probably around 2007.

    CNC mills are cheap. Most one off stuff is faster in the CNC. You got the same setup time. In the CNC you got 30 tools ready for action. Do some BS 2D sketching in your cam program and send it over. Something as simple as facing a plate is done way faster in a CNC mill.

    Lathe is a different story. I would never give up my Axelson and Pacemaker. Same with the #3 arbor press, 40 ton H-frame press and acetylene torch.

    Heavy old mill is a big nope in my book. It's like a turret lathe. If you're making money with either of those you could be making a lot more money with CNC.

    While I agree. I have no idea what BS 2D is, messed with solid works some but that’s it. Admittedly. Old man was a machinist at Lockheed Martin and when he kicked the bucket I took off with what he had in the farm “shop”. Lots of big ass machines, scalped at company auctions. Some has been donated but it all makes money. I think a niche is more valuable than quantity but could be wrong. Lord knows it wouldn’t be the first time. As said repair work is enjoyable. Especially when you hit it off with customer After getting them out of a pinch and end up being good friends.

    Cylinder square anyone? in "used"condition, but MAY need some clean up according to the seller. It is an MSC item aka "SPI" but don't forget it is (according to the seller "get great deal")

    "MADE IN THE USA
    GOOD OLD AMERICAN TOOL"

    I took the liberty of sending a polite message. This video comes to mind for sellers like this, https://youtu.be/matxz-G9q8M

    Here is the ad if anyone is interested in this fine fine purchase.

    If you read the full description, apparently mics (micrometers?) are now how you verify lathe ways as well.
