    Terrific. Lay out at least six feet of heavy chain before attaching a lighter mooring rope. Great boat anchors. nice to have every thing so shipshape. Where do I put the galvanised shackle.
    Just kidding. Great gear.

    It's "only" a 6 by twelve cylinder grinder.

    I'm done with buying machines, until a deal on a VMC comes along(I almost bought a Milacron last week). From now, I only buy Tooling!(I'm sure that won't eat up too much of my paycheck!)

    No, the shop he cleaned out was in Long Island. He's in New Jersey.

    BTW, the deal was extended tonight to include a small cylinder grinder and a Jet horizontal bandsaw...

    Heeheehee.

    Well, I do an occasional bit of consulting as he is mostly unfamiliar with CNC stuff, while I work with it everyday. I also give him the occasional extra set of hands when he needs it.

    If you go to my website and look at the "who am I" page, you'll see me standing in front of a Bridgeport VMC. The grinder came out of the same shop in Long Island.

    If you want, I can supply his name address and phone #. He has ALOT of nice stuff.

    A friend of mine is a machinery dealer. I'm working out a package price. And yes these are toys, or more correctly, these are used to make toys.... I would tell you what I'm paying, but I don't want to make you all cry!

    Both are verrry clean. The Boyar Schultz is indeed a 6 by 12 probably made in the late 80's/early 90's.

    I've wanted the grinder for awhile, but recently took aliking to the horizontal. After he failed to sell them on Ebay, I spoke with him on friday and asked him what he wanted for both.

    I'm now going to be broke for the next three months...

    Those are NOT toys.
    They are important tools vital to developing and maintaining your work skills. Additionally, they are essential for making repairs that will save countless thousands of dollars over their life spans. You are also helping to make our country strong by keeping your hard earned dollars in America. By keeping domestic iron out of the scrap yards, you do us all a great service.

    You are not a tool junkie; you are a true patriot. A person who strives to learn new things, one who endeavors to develop new skills and expand his capabilities so that his country can maintain an edge, and a person frugal enough to realize that a small investment now will save countless dollars for years to come. I for one, sir, salute you and your courage (visualize little flag waving).

    I think I’ll go buy something.
