    I wouldn't necessarily rule one of the Hardinge GT's out but, they are a little bigger than what I'd prefer. I'm really liking the Cubic machines. Not a lot of used machines out there for sale but,...

    Thanks guys!



    The rigid tap and C-axis are not on my must-have list. C-axis is probably more important than rigid tapping. The grinding dust is always a concern but, my shop is actually decent...

    I can understand where this opinion comes from but, I would have to disagree. Everyone on this forum isn't looking to run a job shop and I am not completely inexperienced in cnc production. There was...

    I'm usually late to the party! There are a few out there for sale though. None local, of course. 3' bar is plenty for me so that's good to hear.

    Thanks,

    Haas Mini Lathe questions

    I have been contemplating buying a small cnc lathe for a while and am starting to get a little more serious about it. The new Haas CL1 chucker lathe would be about perfect but, I probably shouldn't...

  9. Recommend a modern Hydraulic fluid for my 1974 K.O.Lee SG

    So I have a manual and it recommends several different hydraulic fluids that all seem to be obsolete. On the pump assembly it actually says to use a rust inhibiting mineral oil of 150S.S.U. at 100...

    Citizen L-25's and L-16's under $3k??

    First, I am NOT a CNC guy. I once had a Matsuura RA-1 and learned to program it and run parts but, that doesn't mean I know anything. So, anyway...I'm kinda getting the itch to have a turning center....

    I think the guy tried to make a go at running a small job/repair shop out of his home shop and it didn't work out. He had a nice, clean shop with some well maintained older machines. He was obviously...

    So, I went out and looked at the K.O.Lee 618 2A this morning. It was actually in pretty good shape. My only hesitation is that the max longitudinal feed speed seems to be 36fpm. Currently I grind dry...

    Wow, I need a deal like that!! I've been drooling over a couple Okamoto 3-axis videos. Never used one but, they look like a Cadillac to me.

    Good point about checking completed auctions on Ebay. I do look at new SG listings on Ebay every day...along with Craigslist and Bidspotter. I'm not necessarily set on a Kent either; any of the...

    I am way too busy to get into a project like that. I'm keeping the B-S for smaller jobs and one off setups. I just can't spend hours at a time standing there turning the handles.

    I did join the Yahoo group. It is not very active.

    I ended up breaking down the feed mechanism myself and cleaning it up. Was pretty straightforward. I sent the spindle to Centerline Inc. in Oklahoma. They're a spindle repair specialty shop. They...

    GK21 needs spindle rebuild

    Just picked up this machine. Late model, serial number 10339. It has sat unused for at least eight years and certainly sat outside at some point. Spindle makes a little noise and downfeed is sticky....
