  • Look what followed me home today ?

    Nearly brand new Conect CNC lathe and CNC mill.

    Came out of a school in Ireland and shipped over courtesy of the British Army to a barracks near me [ don't tell the Army as they don't know <g> ]

    The lathe is based on a Myford ML10 and is all complete, manuals software etc.

    The mill is based on a Rishton,

    They look to only have done the original setup pieces when installed.

    Software is very dated but at least it runs on a PC and not a BBC computer like the early models.

    Now to try to find some floor space.............

    John those are cool, I think "floor space" could be gained if You stack them on a set of sturdy shelfs. Just how big are they? Looks like a couple hundred pounds each, or are the pics deceiving?

      This looks like one of those "I know's a guy, who know's a guy, who know's a guy" kinda deals.

        If you ship them to me I can free up some floor space and store them long term for you.

          The little Rishton mill looks like a Prazi/Emco:
