Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

I'm seriously considering buying a CNC vertical mill since I was just offered one at a price I'm finding hard to refuse, so, if I go through with this, anybody need shit machined?

I would need to recoup some of the cost, even though it's stupid cheap for a mill, lol.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

3 axis, has a 4th axis on the controller no stepper motor for it. Would be for a spindle tilt or something.

This one is a "desktop" size, it's larger than your normal desktop mill, but smaller than your standard standing mills. He offered it to me for $1000, can't seem to touch comparable ones for under 4K looks like.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

I haven't committed yet, still thinking about it. Unsure if I'd ever make enough parts with it to make it worth it, vs just having other people make it.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

Your reservations are quite understandable.


So is there going to be an NG caravan this year, you know all two or three vehicles of us?

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

I'd like to leave at 9-10am, but I dunno if that will happen. Usually I'm still working on cars and loading stuff that morning, lol.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

That works for me, I was worried you would want to do a 7am or 8am departure.

The final count on 3/S cars had to have been under 25. If you include the "other" vehicles the numbers got up into the 30's.
