    FYI, from the look of them those three "Enco" CNC lathes are actually Emco Compact 5. I wonder how hard it would be to combine them into a single working one...? Or convert to EMC?

    Only 2 hours away from me... Tempting, but I don't need more projects.

      I bet there's not much physically wrong with them & you can make al least 2 work.

        Let's see...buy the flat bed, load it up with as much tooling as I can, drive straight down the east coast staying as far away from flylo's machine vacuum as possible, sell off the flat bed, enjoy new toys! It might just work.

            Damn you Flylo! I said I didn't need another project! :-)

            So tempting... No need for a small CNC lathe (my Clausing 5917 is all the lathe I need), but would be amusing.... Dammit!

              It should be "Bless you, Flylo" LOL Buying it only hurts for a little while! I'd snipe it, as you know I am a low life sniper.

                  But yeah... If I wasn't swamped with other projects and had some fun money, I'd snipe it. In a heartbeat. From the pics there's a steady and one of the power-indexing multi-toolposts, so not a bad project for someone so inclined.

                    Someone here please buy this Di-Acro bender. If I knew someone close I'd pay them to ship it to me. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271094957104...84.m1423.l2649

                      Yikes... 1k for 3 parts only CNC lathes. Too rich for my blood, by a factor of 3. Might still have been a good deal if they're willing to put up with parting out, but possibly more hassle than its worth.
