    Not yet, but that was the plan all along.
    I’m familiar with hydro testing.
    The company I work for does it on MUCH larger, more dangerous pressure vessels...

    I bought it for $100 and I was already planning on pressure testing it, but I’m ok with not using the tank.

    Point taken that it might have corrosion pinholes and pockmarks.
    It’s easy enough to...

    The look is NOT the thing, but since I was going to paint it anyways to protect the outside surfaces...

    It was me, but I only messaged him.
    I did not realize that it is required or recommended protocol to post.

    I can sell them to the first person who posted if they desire.

  5. Emptying/“fixing” old compressor air tank

    Anybody know the color name/code/match for Ingersoll Rand cream/light tan?

    Now that I think of it, I wonder if people have tried lining/epoxy coating the insides of tanks ?
    I know they do that...

    It’s age and date are kind of part of the appeal of the thing.
    If it isn’t sound, I’ll get rid of it.

    The compressor itself works well, so if I have to, I’ll go with a new tank, but hopefully...

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that is the approach I was thinking on taking.
    Inexpensive and not too much work to hot pressure wash the interior.
    I already took one of the large plugs off, so that’s how I...

    Anyone here got a good way/bed guarding setup for their HLV-H?
    Remove their compound and replace with a solid toolpost mount?

    I like Robin Renzetti’s solutions for these things, but I want to see...

    I now this thread is old, but checking in anyways.
    Do you have any more Shizuoka docs? ST-N and/or AN-S?

    Thanks!

    If you’re willing to be patient, you can set accel parameters and spin up just about any motor size you want.

    I found a 200HP Toshiba motor at the scrapyard and my friend bought it.

  13. 15 hp vmc on 10 hp converter? Temporary test

    You should be fine, as the spindle is unloaded. The only load is turning its own mass and swirling air.
    My VMC’s 10HP spindle consumes less than 1 KW when swirling air at 8000 RPM.

    You probably...

    What I want is a 3 axis CNC/manual bedmill like a Trak DPM RX3 or something similar, so sprung handles on X and Y and a quill handle, but also a CNC controllable moving column for Z instead of...
  15. Bridgeport CNC (Factory, non retrofit?) Knee Mill Qs

    Thanks for sharing!
    Sounds frustrating!
    My friend has a pair of Bridgeport VMC 760/22 with DX32 controls and Siemens drives.
    They have been pretty solid, but they aren’t used as production...

    Gang tool, but it supports a turret or both gang tool and turret simultaneously.

    I’ll have to look up the weight, but I think a bit over 4500 pounds.

    Asking $18000 or best offer.

    That looks like a Bridgeport DX32 control.
    PC based, using servo motion board.
    My friend has some Bridgeport VMCs using that same control (486 CPU, Siemens drives).
    Old control, but versatile...

    I was wondering what that oddball looking drawbar was on the vertical head. Looks cobbled together.



    Yeah, I noticed that as well.
