    FS: Dalton lathe, Lot 4 SN#119

    Found this in the scrap pile of an old friend of mine, now passed. He'd started a toolmaker's apprenticeship at Pratt & Whitney and very quickly learned it wasn't for him. He was fond of his tools,...

    Are there no sources for used equipment in Uganda? Or Africa? Seems USA to Uganda shipping, customs, possible payoffs along the way would drive their cost way up.

    Well, yeah, but at least this one is on a very nice skid. No need to get a forklift anywhere near the machine itself.

    Uh, you might want to turn the tables and think about that.

    Poisoning the well. Replying factually to his specific points would improve your argument.

    From where I sit, knowing little about the stock market and high finance, Ray looks a lot more credible.

    Larry,

    It's true for machines using Wade 8W collets, though there are minor key modifications necessary, too. My 8A toolmaker's lathe uses 5C collets, without a key.

    Wade made a number of...

    My Sweco (3 cu ft bowl) sits on a piece of 2" styrofoam (extruded). Hasn't walked, in spite of the boss, for 20 years.

    You may be thinking of the Mark 2 machines. IIRC, Interact 2 means the heavy table with more x and y travels than Interact 1.

    I run a 151A, FWIW.

    Another possibility is VisualMill, which has a postprocessor for Heidenhain conversational that works for the 151. Maybe it'd work for your 145.

    It could very well be single phase. Most were 3 phase, but many were converted. Prob 220V, very unlikely to be 120V, but post some pix!

    Yeah, wood here, for sure. About 50 acres of it.



    We may be a bit colder here - 7500-8000 heating degree days per annum :D. Pretty much any sun is welcome here!



    Yup!

    My place is similar. Wings are not quite as long, though, but deeper.

    Did you read "Passive Annual Heat Storage", too?

    Could post here, or in the machinery for sale forum. Craigslist (IMO) would be a more likely venue. Your lathe is a good starter lathe, but the pros here wouldn't buy it as a working lathe.

    That topic went south in a hurry.

    China makes crappy stuff because it sells. And guess who buys it?
