    That was my first reaction since it's been raining. Definitely oil(ish) though.



    I'll give it some extra attention with some mineral spirits. Thanks for the sanity check!

    Thanks Larry, don’t let my inexperience with Hardinge bake your noodle :)

    I appreciate the response. Sounds like it’s no big deal.

    Believe me, I drool over that listing at least a couple of times a week. I ended snagging a Schaublin 13 from our own Peter from Holland. Not that I also wouldn't mind that FP2 :P Pretty much the...

    20k for that '89 EE. Somebody's wallet was on fire this morning. The Schaublin is going for $$ too. Gotta be some happy auctioneers this morning. Made my train commute more fun at least to watch.

    I had my fingers crossed for this one, but it wasn't meant to be. Congratulations to whoever snagged it (if they visit this forum).

    I hear what you're saying, and if it were only a couple hundred miles away it'd probably be on a trailer right now. Problem is it's about 1500 miles away, and work's so busy now that hauling it...

    The conversion was done prior to the current owner's stewardship, so I'm betting he doesn't still have the original motor. I will ask him, though.

    You’re right I misread the text. I was sent this, but that’s for the old original motor.

    It appears to just be wedged in there. I'm pretty aligned with you on the price, and I think it's the 30" bed that's held my interest. I missed out on just such a turn-key machine a couple months ago...
