    People are going to want to know price as Digger said. Considering many have tried to fix it and failed it better be close to haul away for free.

    Not all Jets are poorly made. From what I gather they are all made in low end mainland China shops these days. I have a 14 x 30 Jet branded manual lathe manufactured in Taiwan in 1975. I have had it...

    How many amps are available? I know Arizona is machine shop friendly, the opposite of your neighbor California. Still, if you are in a residential area play nice with your neighbors. That 10 HP...

    On the other hand I have been through Arkansas a half dozen times or so, stayed in the hotels and eaten in the restaurants. Granted...

    Quite possible if running off an unbalanced phase converter in an area where the single phase service runs on the high side. I have seen single phase 220 as high as 247.

    As for the OP's question...

    I sold a smaller 3 position one on E-bay for $250 a couple years ago. I would think yours could bring $500 there for that size, but you will have to part with almost 15% between E-bay and Paypal fees.

    Thanks for posting the outcome so it could help the next guy that has a similar problem. I have run many different generations of Fanucs over 35 years and never had an encoder go out.

    Define local. I am in Virginia I don't think there is a full stocking machinist supply store in the whole state. When I was in Cali there was one 10 miles away.

    The only ones I end up breaking are parting blades from either being too agressive cutting off or trying to get one part too many out of an insert. I probably smoke one of those two sided types every...

    Why would anyone buy insert boxes? The only reason I keep an empty is to remind me to order more. As soon as I re-order the thing goes in the trash.

    Never had a sweet tooth, even as a kid but I remember prices. Definitely candy has went up over and above the cost of inflation. When I was a kid in the late 60's I remember candy bars being 3 for 25...

    Can't believe nobody has snagged that yet, looks like a good deal, almost wish I needed one. Usually the good deals get snatched up in minutes.

    Too drastic. All machines I have ran have a red feed hold button right next to the green cycle start button, use that one and then if needed turn the spindle off. A lot of machines don't like you...

    Speak for yourself. A bad crash can incur a $5-$10,000 service call plus whatever down time you have, preventing that is definitely worth "tip toeing." I would say "tip toeing" adds 15 minutes to a...

    I would also add on machining centers and barrel turret style lathes to program all tool changes far away from the work holding. It can be edited in closer once the set-up is complete.

    Don't know about the age of a Citizen M20. A lot of CNC machines arrive DOA from rough trips. An air ride trailer is usually the best way to go.

    I must of read something wrong. I thought it said you got an estimate for $30k for wiring a garage shop.

    One word of caution, I am guessing you will be using a phase converter. Make sure your...
