    Shouldn't we define professional shops I have made a bunch of money on an Atlas lathe, enough to buy a W&S #3, Rockwell 14 40, and a B&O turret lathe, And even make more money with them.

    Though I started with humble beginnings. an Atlas lathe, and a Mill/drill.

    No, none are for sale. LOL

    This may not be the proper place, but I have a couple of NIB Nederman Fume Extractor kits that I want to sell. Please let me know if this is allowed or not.

    Many years ago I did make some simple tools on a small Atlas upstairs in a manufacturing facility that had lot's of larger machinery downstairs. That did not make it professional grade by association.

    Website traffic costs money and the decision to exclude certain low end machinery certainly reduces traffic that is better served by existing HSM sites.

    "Hi, I'm new to machining and wonder what you guys think of the new HF 7 x 10 precision lathe?"

    Conrad, I don't disagree much about statements others make, but your statement of a 20 year service life as a criteria is just flat wrong. Although your 20 year number may be applicable to CNC machines, and in fact even that may be generous, it does not apply to manual machines. Manual machines can easily have a service life of 100 years.

    'The community' hasn't found it ...yet..

    but the 'holy grail' is network technology that can sense state of mind from DNA and sweat on the fingers as they key or tap in a post....

    ..so as to automagically create 100% packet-loss immediately the 'angry FOOL' factor is detected.

    You selected shite, you BOUGHT shite, you GOT shite.

    Be happy.

    It was YOUR choice.
