    The giant crack warrants a $4900 discount at least.

    The Cinciports are decent machines, but they never get anywhere near what a Bridgeport goes for. I thought the price was about double it's value then I saw the base was busted.

    I'd like to know what happened to it to bust the base.

    I can only imagine it was dropped from 4' in the air and that guy bought it for $100, didn't do a thing to it except use it for 20 years and now wants a 10 times it's value.

    Reminds me of the time years ago when a local bought a nice BP at auction about 60 miles away.
    Got a guy to haul it for 'real cheap'. That idiot never tied it down on the flatbed truck and it bounced down the highway while
    disassembling itself. To make matters worse the guy didn't have a license and was wanted by the cops anyway so they impounded the truck and BP remnants. Machine scrap was tied up for weeks before owner got it to his place. What a mess.

    Default Retirement plan?

    If people are paying $850 for a SB taper attachment, I'm gonna part out my shit and retire....

    Not sure why this one is attaching/loading so small...

    The Cincinnati Toolmaster is a much better machine than a Bridgeport.

    I have one and it would be a big step backwards to trade it for a Bport. I know they sell for less because people don't know what they are but that machine is so much more rigid and can handle cuts a Bridgeport could never dream of taking.

    On the Toolmaster if you take too heavy of a cut you stall the motor. On a Bridgeport too heavy a cut and with no warning you crash the head and ruin the work piece!

    The only question is if it has the 40taper spindle option or if you are stuck with the Monoset collets. Parts availability isn't really issue with those machines as they are built like a tank so you don't need to worry about stuff breaking that often. Back in their day those things were really only ever purchased by big defense plants or shops with deep pockets as they cost several times what a Bridgeport sold for but are much more iron.

    The good news about the damage is it appears to be in the least critical part of the machine. If it bothered one too much to look at bolt on some steel behind it and some bondo and paint and no one would know.

    As for the price I thought good iron is a lot harder to come by up that a way. Don't know what a good mill should cost out there but I would recommend a Toolmaster to the Bridgeport any day.

    Hydraulic Press--- LOWER PRICE--- - tools - by owner - sale

    Tonnage might be optimistic. Price might be as well.

    I'm familiar with Toolmasters. The heads are pretty junky and the mechanical powerfeed system is complex and failure prone. It's just a knee mill that is not a Bridgeport. I wouldn't put a toolmaster very high up on the list of great knee mills myself. If I was to pick one that was pretty good all around it'd be an Excello. They're good all around.

    The NW is not lacking machine tools. Maybe at one time that was true, but since WWII the West has been pretty packed with machines. After the war many ships were disassembled here. The war department strategically placed thousands of machine tools in schools and suppliers. That stuff has been in circulation for many decades now. Aerospace is huge here. We may not have many forging presses or 30 foot VTL's, but there is an abundance of everything else. The aerospace stuff is usually in pretty good shape too. It's not like tier 1 automotive where they run it balls out and then scrap it. A machine that made turbine blades gets rebuilt or retired when it has a few microns error. It still has 20 years left for those of us that work in the thousandths mostly.

    Well, this is O/T, but a laughable artical at the very least.
    Not seen this much mis-information since the last Global Warming writ.

    Especially if you ever participated in trying to devise an airborne computer that could self recover from an EMP event.

    TGTool -

    That's nothing compared to the short field takeoff. LOL

    Structure is the best part - zero metal in it if my memory from about 40 years ago is correct. If I'm wrong someone will correct me.

    I guess one thing you can say for it is that when you get to the end you're indubitably in the air - unless we quibble about what "airborne" really means.

    Now that's just about as interesting as the other. That would have been a good design challenge.

    5 Vehicles That Can Handle An EMP Attack - Ask a Prepper

    Until they run out of gas.
    And likely they can't go far with all the roads blocked.

    Schwinn two-wheeler, roller skates, boots, sailboat, soapbox cart, and a long downward hill.
    But with craigslist down you may not be able to find one.

    Wouldn't you be better off with something like MuMetal? If nothing else, less neck strain...

    Or maybe copper:
