    Update: I took possession of the space 5 days ago. Still cleaning up and moving stuff in, no machines for now. Turns out the space is larger than they claimed so it is an even better deal.

    The building owners have an on-site contractor. I'll ask them about the floor. They ought to know.

    This space is on the first floor with access to a loading dock. The first floor is wood. This was a former textile factory (no idea how much textile machines weigh, but I doubt they're light.

    Setting Up Machines on Wood Floors

    I've recently relocated and I am looking for a space to set up shop in the Portland, ME area.

    One of the places I'm looking at is in a building converted from an old textile mill. I don't know...

    Just waking up here, no coffee yet. But perhaps you can try running smaller idler gears? It seems odd that they would call for such big gears for the idler.

    Sorry guys, hit with the dreaded "full mailbox" again. I just backed up and deleted all messages.

    I ended up calling Gabriel (GMC) and explaining my situation. We agreed on a rate and I got my HLV-H moved safely. So it seems I'm not a human piece of garbage after all...

    C'mon tell me how you really feel! I've done multiple jobs with Gabriel as has the P.M. member who introduced me to him. So I'm really an a-hole for asking if there is anyone with a smaller truck...

    Exactly what I'm concerned about. I've moved my Schaublin 102N (with cast-iron base) myself. I built a set of heavy duty casters on aluminum channels for it (that bolted to the bottom of the base).

    That's exactly why I'm moving. Costs have become extreme here but most people and small businesses still can't earn/charge more than they did before the bubble began inflating.

  14. Recommendations for a Small Machinery Mover for Hardinge Lathe in Los Angeles

    I'm looking for a recommendation of a machinery mover to move my Hardinge HLV. The lathe needs to be moved from a commercial building without a loading dock to another building 26 miles away, also a...

    Just trying to get as informed as I can prior to doing that. Don't want to get the dreaded "do a search before posting a new thread" smackdown.

    Would post #45 count as the "Fadal manifesto" or is the more to it? I'm in the early stages of research on a small CNC mill for prototyping work.

    All the parts I make are optics related so...

    Notes on condition:

    Headstock:
    Original hand scraping is visible and clear on the bottom of the headstock. The cogged V-belt is cracked and should be replaced.

    Not a problem for small grinding jobs. The 102 bed does not need to be oiled so it is easier to clean. You will have to protect the machines sensitive parts from the grinding dust and thoroughly...

    Thanks for the info, Jim.



    That definitely seems to me like "F-U pricing". As in "don't bother us with this".

    But why put it on the website? Perhaps to get inquires from defense contractors...

    I have an HV4N with the 4º taper spindle. I've found it very useful, and I'm especially pleased that it is small enough to be usable on my rather small Wabeco F1200 bench top mill.

    What type of...

    I have an EFI internal threading holder for size E Multifix that I use on my Hardinge HLV-H.

    Thanks for the info. There is a low viscosity version of H-Gard that is 33 cSt making it a better match for Mobilfluid 350 (perhaps that's what you meant).
