    A51 is a 400mm machine.

    Makino numbering is not logical.

    An A61 and A71 are both 500mm. A81 and A82 are 630mm.

    Shirley I doo...

    Horizontals are rated by the size of their pallet, not the stroke of the X axis like a Vertical.

    You can get 500mm pallets as an option on the A51, it's the way we get ours, but 400mm is standard. Our A55s and all A55s I've seen were 400mm machines but I can't say if they made any 500mm A55s or not. I've probably only seen about 20-25 A55s so it's not a huge sample or anything.

    It's a 400mm pallet with about 22" in X and Y. Some manufacturers label their horizontals somewhat randomly. Like Makino the a51 = 400mm, a61 = 500mm, a71 = 500mm/50 taper, a81 = 630mm, a82 has a rectangle pallet, etc.

    JH, how about an update on the amount of interst you've encountered in the used parts thus far? I'm curious.

    Tank

    I listed spindle and a few drives on ebay

    sold one drive to firm in India

    I am doing retrofits on 4 machines in shop in addition to parting the Makino--and
    components are selling
    there seems to be a significant degree of interest in working electronic components
    from cnc controls among big corporate buyers because of cost savings--example is board set
    I overnited to east coast yesterday-- company makes catalytic convertors--and saved 80 %
    compared to what allen bradley wanted

    same with largest producer of cold rolled bar-steel mill

    a few years companies doing 100 million or so a year would never be found buying used components
    off ebay
    but now everyone wants to save a buck---and that works for me

    May not be so much saving a buck on the part as it is getting the part in a reasonable amount of time. Still huge fallout of stocked inventory for spare parts from the downturn in '08. Lead times on some Fanuc components are 18 weeks. Same for some AB stuff.

    Default iron carrion

    so the process of ferrohexis is complete

    mutant birds of iron carrion hoisted the carcass flew a couple hundred yards and dropped
    the load in the adjacent rock pit

    ----where it has limitless possibilities

    I couldn't care less....have zero interest in parting out machines, esp ones that big. JH is a good guy but has an apparently uncontrollable compulsion to write "cute" topic titles, which are usually meaningless. All I can figure is he used to be the headline editor for the New York Post.
