    Originally it was 440 volt but that has been centered punched out.
    When I got it it was 220 volt.
    I've had people asking how much wear there is in the ways like it is a brand new machine.
    When I put an indicator base on the carriage and the tip on the tailstock flat way it dips down .001
    up near the headstock. So I guess it's a clapped out piece of shit and I should just haul it to the dump.
    As long as it cuts straight who cares. Cool machine, GLWTS.

    Lots of people in Spokane want it.
    Have you ever been to Spokane ? Loserville. Nobody has any money.
    They all want a Duesenburg for the price of a Chevy Chevette with a blown head gasket and no muffler.

    Don't get me wrong. I love Spokane. I'd love to move there because the town I live in is even more loserville.
    And to be fair, I did sell My Holbrook to a guy in Spokane for $6500.

    PM me long before you do that. I wish you the best with the sale. I'm hoping someone on the forum buys the lathe. I won't have room in my shop for a little while. But if it doesn't find a new home, PM/email me.

    I was stunned at some of the questions I was asked here when I was having a fire sale as I needed space when I switched from being an OEM to a job shop. I had dedicated machines for a product line the recession of 2008 killed off and did not need all the multiples any longer. I had a CNC Mill I was asking $1500 for and one guy asked if it would hold .0001s on position, another wanted a machine tech to inspect it and send him a report on my dime. I never listed another item here, I used Craigslist and E-bay. I think some guys are just tire kickers and others like to screw with people.

    If I sell the Rivett I would like to replace it with something of equal quality with tooling.
    I figure that will cost at least $10,000 and probably a lot more.
    What are my choices ?
    Schaublin, Hardinge, Mori Seiki ?
    Maybe I'll just keep it.

    In Idaho? 'Just keep it" is probably what you do.

    If the 20" is a big show stopper, email me.

    Before I bought the 30" Cazeneuve, I was working on a trick to extend the 10EE's 'tween centers range, not steady-rest enhanced range.

    We might find you could do the same on the 1020s.

    I came across someone selling a cauzenove in denver recently, i think its still for sale. I don't remember the model but
    supposedly it has some special spindle lock to cut splines.

    Cazeneuve's are WEIRD.

    But like many things French, get used to them looking at the world from a different basis, and find more good weird than bad weird!

    I sent the guy a message, its in greater denver somewhere. Maybe worth a day trip.

    I'm not sure if it was ever even on craiglist tbh, i talked to the guy about a month ago.

    PM has had some REALLY good guys do VERY useful threads on them. Well worth the read.

    Look for the special capstan tailstock. It is HOLLOW, has a fair-sized bore.

    Need to turn a feature on a long rod or tube? Run it through, mount a support bearing to the taper in the arse-end of the TS ram!
