    Floor pans are pretty gross after awhile. I had to remove a couple large HMC's that had been in floor pans for 15 years. It was pretty gross.

    Not true at all.

    I find farmers want it laid out in no BS terms so they can make a quick decision. Usually it's "yes, I can do that, get it over here now so I can get it done for you today."

    I...

    I see it differently. I see it as any lathe that has that much worn off the bottom of the tailstock is not worth one iota of anyones time to try making it nice. The rest of the machine is probably...

    My 800 number is just forwarded. I just pay a flat fee every month. It's like $20 and I can forward the number to my landline, smart phone, whatever.

    Wouldn't that be better than paying for talk...

    I can't imagine sending the wrong drawing out and then asking the vendor to eat it for me.

    The only time I ever had anything like that was a powdercoater that took 6 months to coat parts (5 months...

    Mine was WWII. Crazy how well built they are. I mean they have all the beef and HP, but they were very well thought out like a Jap CNC. The way covers were really cool and still working after 70+...

    I'd have pushed that lathe right out of the way and hooked onto the arbor press behind it!

    I would just shim it and use it. Just throw some oil on it now and then and it probably won't get any worse.

    You can still turn a dead straight shaft between centers even if the tailstock is...

    Why no CNC?

    I do a ton of repair work and I could easily live without my Bridgeport. I could not live without atleast one VMC.

    I would keep an eye out for a small press brake.

    WTF are you going to do with those pallet jacks?

    A pallet jack is like 5000 lbs or less evenly distributed. It's just formed sheet metal. You put that under a machine and you're going to tip it...

    I always put them on the machine after the main switch. Transformers are a load. No sense in paying for that when you don't need it.

    That's an appetizer cut for a 50 taper. The load meter might move a little.

    That makes sense. I have a nice machine torch and feeder setup that came off a huge tank welding machine I bought by mistake once (auction $20 kinda deal).

    Stationary TIG wire feeder setup

    I think it's been discussed here before, but couldn't find it.

    If I have a mig feeder and a TIG welder what else do I need?

    I want to switch up a product from an aluminum hogout to a steel...

    If you are not doing a bunch of the same parts then a manual 4 jaw makes sense to me.

    These fat squatty things are a bit tricky to move sometimes. The base is very narrow and there's a whole bunch of weight on one end.

    You'll be in for a ton of work, but it will probably clean up fine if you put the work in.

    I'd rather get gross and greasy than rusty, but it's yours now.
