    I don't see what is funny? It is only barely more than a brand new one. A brand new one you never know what issues you might have, but this one is tried and true...surely they will guarantee that it...

    Without seeing your entire correspondence, and fine print of any paperwork...they could have very well protected themselves with a clause about third party work like this I might suspect.

    I would think that MSDS would need to be kept on hand from manufacturers even long after the end of production of a product. Sorry not much help, but maybe just need to get the right dept/person at...

    I agree with others that you should not eat any of the cost. Either they inspected the machine before making this deal, and wrongly thought they could do it so should hold themselves accountable for...

    Here it is Fedex that I have trouble with. Just depends where you are.

    You are in a better part of the US than me for surplus machinery, and a press brake is not a cheap shipping item so finding locally helps. As someone who has been looking for a similar press brake...

    Do they work off of a simple ball valve on off? I am assuming that the pneumatic powered vac pump needs a constant flow of air to pull vacuum, or does it reach a holding point and lock up the...

    If I get to the end of the year with this roller I will just keep it I'm thinking, and have also raised the price everywhere to $10,500 currently. In the meantime though still for sale...and I will...

    I did take some 80grit and roughed up the jaws a bit, as well as made sure they were clean. I have just temporarily been adding a bar clamp on the jaws to hold the material down in place to get...

    I have yet to completely disassemble the clamp. It appears as though it is a piece of plate with a through hole that engages the shaft to lock it in place. Possibly the hole has just become too...

    Did you build this to be automated with a pump, or just a simple rack with some manual lifting cups? I got a crate of cups at an auction a few years ago that went to a large powered overhead glass...

    I see accepting Credit as much more of a service to the customer than it is to me, and usually have just added to the invoice to add 3% for card payments if that is how they would like to pay. Or...

    It seems to me (prefaced by that I know nothing, and don't ever take my advice) it would be simplest to machine a two piece clamp that fits into the grove around the center of the part. Then simply...

    He also has to pay for the insurance to insure that your machine is covered if it falls, and you are paying for the experience they have to make sure that never comes up anyway.
