    A good friend of mine got 19.5 fever 15 or 20 years ago, whenever they started to get popular.

    They have their place, but I really don't think 19.5's belong on a pickup at all. Stiff as a brick. ...

    Can you move the bandsaws and roller tables underneath the finger rack?

    I set my auto saw up like this and like it a lot. Consolidates a ton of space.

    Do you have a forklift or can you get one?

    No, that is nothing like an automatic saw. That is a 100% manual saw. Maybe Amada used the same basic frame for an auto version, but there are many differences beyond just a shuttle table.

    That really is awesome, Thank you!

    What do you want to rebuild my shock? I don't know you from Adam, but you've been extremely helpful.

    I could crack mine open and see how bad it is inside...

    That's a great saw, but being smashed up like that makes it pretty undesirable.

    bigger manual saws tend to go pretty cheap even in good shape. I'd say that saw in perfect shape is worth $1500 to...

    I agree with Phil, not worth a lot.

    That's a good size though. 20x120 is an all around good size machine.

    I see two problems-

    1) There's one too many zeros in that price.

    2) The space that machine occupies is worth more than that machine can possibly produce. If you have the need/resources for a...

    Funny, there was a guy with an ad on craigslist parting out an 85 XR350. Said it had a good rear shock. So I drive an hour and a half to go buy it. Get there and the bike doesn't look right. It was...

    The only brazed carbide that I don't toss in the scrap bin are pieces ground into long skinny slivers for re-cutting centers. Those are real handy to have. Brazed carbide works great for that. Can't...

    I ordered an original 1985 manual for my bike. Hopefully it will have that info. I figured when I get the manual next week I will disassemble and see what the body bore looks like inside.

    I've sort of been in this position before. A couple times.

    My Taiwan knee mill has ballscrews. I've never once thought "boy I sure wish I had acme screws".

    Yeah, the table will turn the screws, but the locks work fine.

    The problem is all modern shocks have the reservoir integral with the shock body. They won't clear the frame or the airbox or the carb, etc, etc on my bike.

    The one guy that sounded experienced, but flaked out said the housing bore is likely scored if it was rode low on oil. He also said that the OE seals were much better than the aftermarket stuff so...

    The rear shock on my 1985 XR350R is no longer doing it's job. It's an oddball one year only design remote reservoir Showa.

    The bike's in nice shape. Really a time capsule from 1985. I would...

    Just curious, why 2005 and newer?

    I have lathes from 1985 to 2008 and the untrained eye can't really tell the difference when you swap an LCD screen into an older one.

    Newer machines have...
