Just scored a Yuasa 12" rotary table, Mitutoyo depth mike, Palmgren tilting vise, Palmgren rotating vise, Lufkin adjustable parallels, Starrett radius gauges and a Do-All Wear Block set for $270.

Kinda bittersweet, though as I got them from a machine shop that's going out of business after 28 years.

Sad circumstance, but alot of that going on. Congrats though, good that you lucked out and picked up some very useful stuff.

As an optimist I'd forgo the bitter and concentrate on the sweet.........

Forgot that I also got a set of 6-8 machinist's squares in the deal, too.


In case you couldn't tell, I'm just starting out. :rolleyes:

Well if one has any money these days it's a great time to toolup.......and the bonus part is your starting with quality pieces.......that 12" table will make the left one droop when lifting though.........LOL
