Just curious if anybody here has any experience breaking up machines and parting them out?
I have the opportunity to buy a super clean Takisawa TS20 lathe with a cooked motherboard. The owner has spent quite a bit trying to get the board fixed but has been told 12k for a new control by Fanuc.
They bought a new machine and want this gone
The last "offer" they made to me was $2000 including a Fanuc robot.
They replaced a bunch of stuff including ballscrews about 3 years ago.
Just wondering if i made space to move this thing somewhere and broke all the electronics and goodies, put them up on ebay. Is there good money to be made on something like this? More trouble then worth?
