    You might do well to schedule a curtainside flatbed truck and the riggers (herding those cats could be a feat in itself) on the same day/time window.

    That would get what you want essentially. I...

    I don't think you can totally know unless you pull the wheels off. Seems like there's an inspection port on my Hyster to visually check the pad thickness.

    That's so they can charge you an additional rental fee for the 72/84/96" forks :)

    Rented a 15k a ~year ago and had to spec the additional forks as a line item.

    Have you "leveled the machine" aka set ways in the same plane with something like 199Z master precision level

    Driver of a rollback is everything. I got a forklift moved successfully, needed a guy to move a tractor, another driver shows up, looks it over, and says "oh i'm going to have to call my office...

    Need another piece of info....trying to turn the entire 40mm length to +0/ -0.00086", (which I see as +0/-0.001" due to lack of any good way to measure less than steps of 0.0005"), is likely your...

    One won't see a lot of 614s out there, in my mind hinting at their continued value and likely irreplaceable nature.

    I got a 612 into the shop this summer and I'm equally impressed by it as when I...

    I just saw your post, I have some experience with this.

    Bottom line is my mast cylinder was weepy when I got it, after a heavy lift one time it got downright flood-y which made a huge mess.

    The concern I would have about using a poly-v/ automotive style belt for the main spindle belt is that they seem to run *extremely tight* at least in auto accessory drive applications. Much tighter...

    Just another data point. I'm an amateur but spent a little time researching and talking to people and here's what I rolled with.

    I built a 25 x 40 addition.

    I'm thoroughly impressed there's a C16J replacement at such low cost! I was hoarding away some real C16Js for a rainy day, marked on all 6 sides of the box so future generations won't immediately...

    Amazing lathe, I gotta ask how you transported and moved it? I recall a reliable notion of 12,000 lbs.
