I picked up a mill/Lathe combo

So ive been on the hunt for a deal on craigslist and thought this one was fair enough. ended up picking it up in unknown condition. I was told it was not working and that what was attached and immediately around it was all.

well after backing my truck through this nice lady's yard. unbolted the legs from the machine and lifting the most i have in a long time. we got it loaded.

The Bad:

missing the motor for the mill
missing the sensors for the D.R.O
missing collets
tool post sucks
dirty as hell


The Good:

lathe turns on and spins
everything is in much better condition that what i was thinking.


Still cleaning everything, there is a lot to clean.

i think he may have been cutting go cart tires down. it looked like it was the guys cart shop or something. the guy sold his house and im guessing he wasn't going to take it. the lady that bought the house was selling it.

Me like. I've also been looking for a mill or lathe myself. Found a nice 1950's lathe in really great condition for the age, but sucker is too heavy to pick up without a lift to take it off the truck!

started working on the chuck. got it some what presentable, reassembled and went to go mount it only to find out the bolt pattern is smaller.....facepalm

Probably the go cart thing as mentioned earlier, but also in the off-road world people will cut new tread patterns into already aggressive tire treads to increase performance.





Doubt this is the case for his mill, just thought I'd add this little tidbit.

You need the backplate for that size chuck. There is one for each size.

going to need a good bit more than that. shot an email to the company that made it to see if they had any parts laying around. I knew i was missing some things but didn't think that it would be this much:

Jake,
You are missing the entire top slide carriage. Besides the main cast pieces, there are a bunch of smaller parts, bearings, brackets, lead screw etc. If I could manage to round up the pieces, you are probably looking at 5-700.00 for all of it.
JT


still trying to decide what i want to do with it now.
