  • Cabinet gloat

    Picked this up a couple weeks ago. I was helping a friend clear out an office building that he was getting left over stuff from (Server rack, work benches, etc) In one of the server rooms was a roll front cabinet. Perfect for next to my mill where the sheving I had was just a chip storage unit.

    Also in the server rooms were Halotron halon replacement 11lb fire extinguishers. They are ABC rated and dont leave any residue. Got one for the shop and one for the electronics lab. They are about $400 a pop.

      You also suck for that nice collection of tooling too. Is that a collet hand wheel for a Monarch EE I see in there? LOL,The vice grips should cover about anything the 5c's can't hold. An excellent tool storage unit too, and that's the type of fire suppression I should have bought instead of the $400 dry chem I did. Maybe I'll never need it................... I hope.

        I forget how people really scrutinize posted photos. I really need to sell off some of the tooling, I must have 6 or 7 sets of inside mics and depth gauges.

        Oh come on, you have never seen my Monarch??? I have posted it a zillion times! Oh well, here will be a zillion+1.

        I lost the square end wrench for the D nose on the spindle of the lathe. I made up another square end on a piece of 3/8" steel rob but all my welding equipment is over at a different shop so I just stuck a vise grip on the end. Worked. Found the real wrench and have not touch it since.

          Macona,
          Oh for sure I've seen your EE before, I just wasn't sure if you still had it. And I wasn't positive about the hand wheel. In fact Yours and McGyver's always stick in my head. That's my idea of a "real" lathe. There just too damned heavy for my shop though. Some healthy cuts were being taken by the looks of the swarf. Many thanks for the additional pictures of lathe porn though. LOL, it's still nice to see how the concrete floor bastards get to enjoy life. Possibly a good DS&G might be a heavier built lathe? But pound for pound, your Monarch has to be right up there.

                        I like your tooling tree for collets and toolholders.
                        have you posted it before?
                        it looks like it would make a nice project article.

                          the tooling storage looks ace, i'm just starting to get ideas for R8 tooling on my BP, so pics of the tooling 'tree' you have would help with ideas.
