  • This is really going to make you cry

    Got two days to find someone who wants this free of charge.



    but they have to move it and there are a few bits missing, milling head, chucks, change wheels and grinding arbors.

    No takers by Thursday dinner and it's in the skip as the place it is has to be cleared.

    More info here.

    Holy crap whats the name of that thing WONKA?
    You gotta find it a home bro, no ifs ands or butts, something tells me a woman is behind all this, when they ask me --- whats it going to be me or your machine, Your correct answer should be this,,, "dont make me choose"

        Nope,
        It's a commercial job, I'm being paid to shift / move these machines.
        This one is the ugly duckling.
        The rest I have either bought or found homes for and I have until Thursday night.

          My wife keeps telling me "Men with white coats are coming to get you someday"
          I wonder if they'd drop that machine off when they come?
          (looks like a heavy bugger)
          I have tools I don't even know I own...

            I don't suppose they had any nice mills lying around there for me did they John?
            Mind you, theres a Bridgy up your way thats on e-bay for آ£31 at the moment with no motor or pulley and dodgy quill, but I just happen to know where there is a spare J head stuck on a horizontal mill that might go for scrap...
            Then again I need something thats working now rather than a fixer-upper.

              I was offered a rather nice Parkson H-V Universal mill the other day, tidy piece of kit, but 'speak now or the scrap man gets it'. The scrap man got it, I had no place for it & though it looked to be in better order than my Elliott Omnimil it was less versatile & too big. Shame to see a good machine go, though.

                There's one in Warrington finishing tomorrow, haven't seen it so don't know whether it's worth his start price, but it has got a DRO fitted.

                  One Bridgy there 66 or 68 model with mechanical power, feed step pulley.
                  Had it running and it all works including quill feed. Few holes in table, nothing frightening and seems smooth but looks grungy, prolly not been paint cleaned for ages.
                  Someone may have their name on that and I won't know until Wednesday if not it's on my list to shift on Thursday.
