  • Any of you BC guys need a big lathe?

    Or anyone else for that matter..
    Funny how things happen.
    The guy who delivered my mill was stopped at a coffee shop for a break.
    While he was in there he looked out the window and saw a guy sticking a note under his windsheild wiper.
    He goes out to see what the fella was up to.
    I guess the guy has a machine shop near Nelson BC and had just been hired on full time by the local school board so he was selling out.
    Brian explained that he wasn't starting up a shop but he'd bring the paper info to me.
    DANG!!! I'd like this one...
    A TOS, 8 foot between centers, 22" swing with two good US made chucks.
    $6500 Cnd.
    If anyone is interested I can PM you the guys number. Or I may just call him myself.

      LOL! I hear you. I'd love that thing but I just paid for the mill and now need to build a place for it.

          Peter... Do we get up early or do you sleep late? FWIW.. Evan does NOT sleep...it's a scientific fact...I think.
          I'll send you the info...

            I sleep some, maybe 3 to 4 hours total per night. I am nearly always awake from about 3 or 4 at the latest, some nights I only sleep a couple of hours. Night time is computer time for me.

            Speaking of which I have been working on some scripting (programming) for CamBam. I'll be posting more on that soon.

                      Wait until closer to the time, and thanks for Janet's # Peter. Russ, he must still be fishing but I don't think for fish
