    Default Nakamura TMC3 lathe - FREE

    Well, not entirely free, youll have to show up next weekend and pay for the forklift rental (about $800).
    Machine works, but dont expect pristine for the price.

    I need the space as I've decided to bring in another VMC.

    Tow truck driver from Toronto is planning on coming for it.
    Wants to learn himself some CNC, and has a place to put it.

    Will update if deal fails.

    Machine went out today. client refused to take advice on strapping it down on 5 ton flat deck. Strapped over sheet metal, and bent the shit out of it.
    Such a shame.

    Ill be watching the news tonight to see how far he made it before it cleaned the cab off, or ended up in the rhubarb ;(

    "Tow truck driver", eh? Mought be heading straight to the metals recycler with it for fast cash anyway, same as a dead toy-odour or Bee-um F**kyah. One pile of metal looks much the same as any other to that lot.

    Also possible the average IQ of Canadian tow truck drivers is about to go up, statistically.

    This sounds likely. Shame, but his marginal cost was much lower than a regular scrappy.

    Steel and iron has been trending lower with the Chinese tariff situation, so if it's any consolation he'll either get less for it, or have to hold onto it for a while to see if prices go up.

    Yeah -when a guy "in the biz" that has the gear and experience to do a PROPER load-secure at near-zero extra effort just casually crunches sheet-metal instead, no concern over it, it does sorta send a signal.

    I wouldnt bet on the IQ portion.
    Was reminiscent of tits on a rooster.

    Thermy was talking about the opportunity for the tow driver to remove himself from the aggregate (by embedding himself in the aggregate once the lathe overtook him). Hence the remaining collective IQ increasing.

    "Free at last" might inspire an ambitious lathe to try its hand at being a planer, yah.

    Interestingly, a buddy of mine alerted me to my old machine being advertised right back on Kijiji same day.
    For $6000...

    Wish him luck selling it with the fucked up tinwork... I'm amazed he managed to get it home.
