  • Nice little fixer upper for a dollar ?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=7618734910

    Power feeds on all 3 axis just a bit of a problem with the varispeed pullies.
    Interesting to see what it does fetch, I reckon about آ£250 to آ£350.

    John, is that machine made in the UK?
    And just how does 24cwts relate to pounds?

      I went to have a look at a Mill this morning that Charles put me on to. It was advertised as a Bridgy for آ£395, but when I got there I found out it was a Kearney & Trecker #2 horizontal mill with a Bridgeport J head grafted on the front of the overarm.
      He still had all the original arbors and overarm supports and a ton of tooling for it, so it would be a bargain for someone.

      Must weigh about 3 tonnes at least and unfortunately way too big for my little garage workshop, the table must be at least 60" x 12". I took a few pictures I could post if anyone is interested.

        1 cwt is one hundredweight = 112 lbs
        20cwt = 1 ton = 2240 lbs

        Not sure how many of these are the same as US measure.

          one long ton = 22.4 hundredweights(short)
          =20.0 hundredweights (long)

          one pound = 0.008929 hundredweights (long)
          = 0.031 slugs

          hope this clears it ip

            long tonne=metric tonne<>short ton which is 2000 lbs.

            Pound = 350 scruples or 0.125 cloves or 291.667 troy pennyweights unless it is an apothecary pound which is 1.215 less than an avoirdupois pound.

            I like metric.

              Scruples, cloves, troy pennyweights, slugs.
              That really f#~+ing clears it up doesn't it ?

              Next time I buy a machine I'll have to remember all these common everyday measures just so the machinery people know what they are lifting.

              I mean to say I don't want be be regarded as being behind the times.

              Is it national idiots day over there ?

                      Lately, I've been figuring all of my feed rates in furlongs per fortnight. I'll do this until the summer solstice.

                              Simple conversion, that. 1 (inch per second) = 152.727273 furlongs per fortnight.
