    Default Have 3 W&S in my shop, fully tooled, need to get them set up and running!

    Hello All,

    I am new to this forum and a machine shop owner. I purchased a threading business that made SS316 Petcocks and in the purchase bought two No.4 and one N0.3 Turret Lathes, tooled under power and running. We rigged and moved them and now I need to set them up and get them turning. I have original manuals and a few publications. Also managed a Hendey 14x30. Have some extra parts and need to sort through what's good and bad. I have entertained the thought of selling them but no one around here wants them so since I already wired for them and have them set in place I figure lets use them.

    Anyway any input is appreciated. I am not a master machinist by any means but not a beginner as well.

    Thanks!
    Bill

    Hey Bill,

    Is there any info you're looking for specifically? I new to machining in general but I've recently got my No.4 set up and going.

    Speaking of, I'd be interested in any extra parts or tooling if you'd be interested in selling. Post some pics of your machines either way!
