    Hopefully.......

    the weather is crap here, pissing down all day and same forecast for the next few days.

    Two shops to sort, first shop isn't too bad, load of gear to come outside and go under sheets and the green slotter loaded up and go down the road 1/2 mile or so to it's new owner.



    Shouldn't be too hard, everything except the slotter is on wheels.



    Slotter is last thing to come out and then sort the floor, those bars against the slotter are all stainless and they go right back to the rack. might make a new rack against the short wall for them and the CNC lathe can stand infront, The X3 CNC mill will move to where the lathe is in the other shop.

    Other shop is the most work.



    This is the beast that is going.
    got a 28 tonne Hiab truck booked for 8:30 on Thursday morning from the scrapyard.



    Must admit the shop is well overdue for a clear up but knowing the lathe was going it didn't seem worth while.
    I reckon it will take all of Tuesday to just clear round, where that red press stands are two hydrovane compressors a Sieg SX2 milling machine in bits and a C3 lathe still in it's crate.!!

            It might be easier on all if you just dig a hole and bury it in situ, John. It would give the UXB boys a laugh when the next owner hits it with a back hoe.

              Dare not dig a hole under the workshop, that's where I buried all the asbestos.

                  Let us know how you get along with the C3, John. I spent hours setting mine up, but then it is my first lathe, and I guess I didn't really know much about setting them up from new.
                  Has it the imperial or the metric leadscrew?

                    Mike,
                    Don't know what leadscrew, only had it 4 years and it's still in the case

                      Maybe building and shoehorning a foundry in there so it comes out in ingots might be easier?

                      One way or another, That's going to be a long and tiring job to remove that lathe.

                        And I thought my shed was untidy!

                        Ah, the luxury of having so many tools, you don't need to bother unpacking them for years.

                            You should put that big machine on homeworkshop, collection only - bring a sack barrow
