    I like that L base. I saw a 7' arm Carlton that had a 1/2 moon base. Thing musta weighed 50K lbs, but you could have a party on the base.

    I have a 1990 MV65B and it had the same problem when I got it. The switches and wiring were torn to shit under the way covers.

    With the way covers off the switches are pretty easy to get to.

    I want one powered by pellet gun CO2 cartridges. BAM! umbrella up! Getting a bit limp? Pull the trigger again!

    Make the thing out of the same material as auto airbags.

    Could be a self defense...

    Depending how it is attached you might leave it. I have a big CNC lathe where the 80HP motor is outboard of the headstock. The motor mounting platform is a piece of 3" steel plate about 36"x36" and...

    They're on ebay for around $550 shipped. Same screen fits 6T/M, 3T/M and 10T/M

    I have a 3T SL2 that just lost the screen as well! Must be the expiration date.

    There was a pretty darn decent looking Summit full auto bandsaw on Seattle Craigslist for the past 2 weeks for $900. It appears it finally sold, but you might watch to see if the ad just expired. It...

    I just bought some equipment from a big manufacturer and their sense of value was really screwed on most of the stuff. The plant manager thought that the giant old manual stuff that was worn out...

    Like stated above, You need to find the parameter for this and verify it at the control. Then work from there. You don't poke around with a DMM until after you do this. You're just wasting your time...

    You can buy or have made cheaply cast sleeves in any conceivable size you want. You just spec what you need.

    I'd lean towards having the bore in the correct planes and using a sleeve that...

    I don't see how anyone could possibly argue that solid state spindle motor control is inferior to tube tech.

    I'd speculate that 99.999% of all round parts made since the late 60's have been made...

    Put 500 on it boom all the way out near the ground. See what happens. It's not like they move at rocket speed. If it starts getting tippy, well, there you go, better stop there. If it don't tip at...

    I used to have a 2 post car lift that was made for low ceilings so it had the safety cables across the floor under a steel cover. Essentially a 3" speed bump you had to drive over to use it. I was...

    I don't know dick about Fosdick's, but if I had to guess what a 13X60 weighed I would be thinking about 8 tons, not 2.

    The 6 ft Carlton I'm looking at is 24K lbs bare.

    I've only moved little...

    My experience with boom and scissor lifts is that they won't let you do anything unsafe. The new ones are ridiculous. In fact, that's why I went out and bought my own 10 year old one because I...

    What is your point?

    What do you think the cost of all those machines is just sitting there? Maybe he's a rich old fart and owns the building outright. There's still some healthy overhead on a...

    Maybe, but it'd be a pretty short ramp. I like the water idea. I'll give it a shot.

    Forgot to mention, it also has to work under water. That kind of rules out electronics.

    I guess I need to figure out exactly what these motors are. They just say series wound 12V 2.5KW. They have...

    I currently cut alot of 4" pieces of 4" 6061 and 18" pieces of 1.5x5 6061. I just let them drop into big Uline plastic carts and drain the coolant off after they settle.

    I've got a high volume...

    I've seen several AC motors that use a simple dumb rectifier circuit to put DC into one winding which stops the motor from spinning right away and stops it in exactly the same spot every time. This...

    Similar application, but I'm looking to keep an already stopped motor from spinning.

    Anyone built an outfeed table to drain coolant off the parts and prevent bigger parts from banging into each other?

    Bud, 30,000 pounds is nothing. It might be a big thing to you, but there are lots of things weighing several times that sitting perfectly fine on steel pads on concrete.
