    Had a quick visit with my friend Collector today. And picked up some stuff I need. Not as much as I wanted to buy, but reality (lack of space in my shop) does get in the way sometimes.

    Currently watching two people in similar processes to the OP. Would agree with CarbideBob- do as much as you can yourself if you have the time.

    It’s a very good thing to ensure your mill is getting lube and cleaning out gunk. I wouldn’t fit a new gib to your saddle without first rescraping the saddle etc. Just re-shim. Since you already...

    The rear item is a gauge block holder for x axis travel. Pre dro Deckel thinking.

    Front item looks to me more like a taper turning attachment rod holder from a lathe.

    Wow, that’s dirty. No idea what your local market is like, but $1800 seems way excessive for a tear down and rebuild.

    Can you at least see it in person? Runing? Otherwise, I’d pass.

    I assumed all Biax’s are made in Swiss/Germany. I could be wrong. Anyways, I’m not going to be buying another Biax anytime soon (I hope), just curious.

    Jersey John, just out of curiosity did you look into the price of a new black Biax? Saw Stephan Gotteswinter use one on one of his youtubes. Given the choice (if I didn’t have to pay for it) I get a...

    Even the much newer green Biax’s are now getting hard to find parts for as I found out last year. Thankfully the Detroit wizard can still fix em at a reasonable price and mine’s purring again. So, if...

    If I were a full time professional machinist, I’d no bid this. That tiny neck is fragile and the whole design is a PITA. You’ll need to design fixtures not just to hold part while machining but also...

    Actually, for nc5a, if from Alaska to California and return, the shipping price sounded cheap. Agree, grinding is such a nit picking job I’m amazed anyone makes money.
