Used CNC prices?
We have two CNC lathes no longer needed as the business is gone. A 1994 Mitsubishi M-TC10B as well as a 1984 Hitachi Seiki HT20.
Both are in good condition with chip conveyers. I know the market is slim, but what is a reasonable price for these units?
In case anyone is interested they can send me an email at email@example.com. Pictures are available via email.
Hard to believe no one on this board is interested in these. It will be a shame to part them out as scrap, but I can't store them forever.
Lotsa. If I had the room, I'd grab them in a minute. I only have a small corner of my garage to put my stuff.
Where are you and what do you want for them I know someone that might be interested - I can't promise anything, but I can give him the information.
The lathes are in Phoenix. The same model Mitsubishi is being offered for sale by at least 3 other used machine sellers at $30k. I am willing to let both units go for $20k and will load them myself onto buyers frieght hauler.
Kind of sounds like an advertisement for me, not appreciated here.
Many people are justifiably uneasy about buying this type of equipment from an unknown seller for several good reasons.
Moving and setup costs can be more than the purchase price, and then you may end up with damaged merchandise with outdated electronics that are difficult to find support for.
Good, new CNC machinery is not that much more expensive, and then manufacturer support is available. This alone can be worth the price of admission.
Sometimes a bargain can end up costing much more than spending smart money up front, especially when lost production time is involved. I know more than one company or shop that has found this out the hard, expensive way.
One way to know for sure how much your cnc machines are worth is to put them on ebay and sell them with about month long. That is what the market would bear.
It's a bit out of the home shop price range for me but I'm sure there are people who have that much for their toys. Still, I would like to see the pictures. I wonder what a chip conveyor looks like.
That sounds like a fair price based on the things I have seen. That 84 hitachi is a damn good machine. Hold out they will eventually sel,l everything does.
