      Hi Christian my old china - sorry to hear of the turn of events.  Whilst I support the military, the preference to to join because one wishes to.  Going back to the 40s, up to the VietNam era, many in the family served proudly.  No more on that topic.
      I live a bit far away to "take advantage: of your shop offerings - of course the best would be for a wise person to step in and buy a lot of two.  Alas, I could only nick-pick on parts of the goodies that you have.
      If you don't find a buyer for the different "lots" and plan on parting it out, let me know.
      Hang in there,

      Afternoon boys,
      Alright. Coming up really fast here on my EI termination, the economy hasn't picked up and I haven't landed a job.
      before I cut my neck and sign away 3 years of my life in the Navy - I would like to recoup some cash and see if I can locate a sane job locally or with in Canada.
      I am selling all my machines and basically my entire shop, Some items I will retain.
      The items I will list are my own personal machines that have seen little to no use. I wasn't expecting to sell them off- sigh!

      First up is a 14x40 lathe. Picked it up form KMS about 6 months ago, If that.
      ** Replaced the original single phase motor with a 3phase baldor and attached a variable frequency drive, VERY handy to dial in speeds and feeds you want.
      Foot brake and lever for forward and reverse all tied into the VFD, Mash on the brake and the works stop. This is not a mickey mouse setup.
      Has seen less then 15 hours of use, and I just recently bought a indexable carbide set. 130$
      6" 3jaw chuck 8" 4jaw - Face plate
      Quick change tool post.
      MT3 keyless chuck
      All change gears + extras like the brass spur gear ( used with in the apron ). Also comes with its own little tool box with tools and odds and ends.
      Carbide dead center HSS dead center and ball bearing live center.
      Steady rest - Follow rest
      Spare coolant pump
      Halogen light
      I have all paper work and books for the lathe.
      Pictures follow, ask for more pictures if need be........come take a peek - play with it cut with it do what ever you need to.

      ASKING  $4250 O.B.O

      Next is the CNC equipment that I wanted to use on my RF45 mill conversion.
      It has every thing you need minus a couple bucks in odds and ends and some stock to machine the bearing mounts.
      3x gecko 201's
      2x nema 34 steppers ( 1260ozin 2.8V 7A 4mH inductance 4 wire )
      1x nema 34 stepper ( 1290 oz in 3.1V 6.3A 5.5mH inductance 4 wire )
      Both of the above have spec chart and test certificate / torque and speed curve tests.
      1x small nema 23 stepper ( 8 wire 2V 7A unknown torque - Plenty good for a 4th axis conversion )
      1 small and 2 large cooling fans designed to go inside the electronics enclosure
      3x CPU heat sink + fan designed to mount the the gecko drivers for proper cooling
      CNC4PC break out board http://www.cnc4pc. com/Store/ osc/product_ info.php? products_ id=49
      Various small heat sinks
      small 1 amp variable voltage PSU or fixed 12V ( AC input DC output ) Designed to run the geckos.
      1x digital amp meter
      1x digital volt meter
      Both of the above designed to monitor the toroidal drain and health with in the electronics enclosure.
      Antek AN-8450 toroidal + cap bank + diode rectifier, Perfect match for the geckos and the 3 steppers. All ready calculated the best of both worlds including line drop or surge + max running voltage etc etc etc. http://www.antekinc .com/details. php?p=131
      Just solder up the caps and attach to the diode bridge. Whala!
      1x pulse gen made by Dan Mach - Handy to test out potential steppers or to make a simple power feed, Can be wired to a PC and commanded to function VIA mach3.
      3x .625" ball screws - designed for an RF45 conversion or similar mill drill, Extra length on each for personal fit and machining.
      6x preloaded ball nuts. Designed to be used in pairs with the springs shown in the picture to PROPERLY achieve 50-75 lb preload on the nuts = zero lash!
      1x radial bearing on free float end and 3x angular contact bearing blocks.
      Retaining nuts and extra ball bearings included - see pictures.... ....
      4x flexi couplers from steppers to ball screw.
      Like I said a complete package for a cnc conversion or used on similar plans or ideas, I will share all my plans or drawings or insight on what you plan to do. My sale is not final....... ..Comes with virtually unlimited support - Will even drop by if some one local grabs it.
      Check on ebay what a 1200ozin nema 34 stepper costs....... ..

      ASKING $1000 O.B.O

      Next is my GENUINE RF45 mill/drill from Thomas Skinner.
      Very little use like the mill. I put on maybe 10 hours of total use.
      I had decided to convert the mill to variable frequency drive again, but never got around to it. Comes with a 56C frame baldor motor + matching VFD.
      Just turn or fab your own adapter plate and whala.
      The switch did die on me the other day - So to reverse the motor I have to switch a wire with in the electrical box on the side. Pain in my butt but it just happened.
      You can see I have nothing to hide and I wish the next owner to enjoy the machine ( a switch can be bought or maybe even free replacement from Thomas Skinner ) but the VFD + 3 phase motor is VERY IDEAL.
      Machine specs .........  http://www.emachine tool.com/ new/catalog/ vertical. cfm?ProductID= 697

      As you can see the stand it comes with is a COMPLETE POS!! flimsy and thin and wobbles.
      So I made my own, A MONSTER. 450lbs 3/8 wall HSS with cement poured into the legs. 1/2" plate in the middle and top.
      Lowered the center of gravity and now nothing wobbles.
      I have a quill read out for the limited range work - and I have a 2 axis glass scales DRO I bought and installed, All working great.
      The DRO it self cost me 600$ at my door. ( Haven't even routed the amour cables yet ).
      I had to initially adjust the gibs and inspect the machine over, nothing major just tinkering. No real known issues I have encountered.
      You can see I leave all my machines with a thick film of oil on all exposed surfaces, I have taken great care of all my items!
      As you can see the ways have the beautiful scrape marks or cross hatching or how ever you want to call it, Great indication of ware ( none! ).
      I bought all the extras for the mill and it came with nothing, But I will put a couple of items in as a mill NEEDS them and its a waste to buy a mill and then have to start running around for these items. Check picture.
      6+ " opening enco vise.
      14 pc R8 collet set ( all major diams )
      brazed carbide face mill
      6-8" angle plate ( forgot to take dimensions will find out for you all )
      mini vise.
      R8 boring head. + a set bor boring bars to go along with it.
      50pc set ( I think ) clamp down set.

      Again if you need more detailed pictures of want to ask questions or any thing at all let me know........ .....
      I have all the paper work and books for the mill.

      ASKING $3200 O.B.O
      ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -------
      My own tools + possible mill or lathe add ons.
      Large 130lb granite plate
      Digital height gauge ( Unable to find the carbide tip for the height gauge, KBC tools has a replacement for about 15 $ )
      2" length height gage + stand.
      Regular parallel set.
      Unknown amount of end mills 2 4 flute HSS carbide - pictures.
      Pair of large V blocks.
      Gage block set B grade I think.
      More items I wont list but if you see a picture of it and you are interested or curious ask me as can discuss.

      Looking only to get back what I paid, All ready set the prices so I am right on the mark. I will accept offers though as I need the money more then the machines. I will take a hit if it manes I can stay around a bit longer and some one can get good use from the stuff I have.
      I am not here to swindle any one, I will gladly disclose any and all information and answer any and all questions.
      If some one does become interested in a large machine then I will take care of all the moving from my shop to the front. Where I will load onto a pick up or flat deck, And if you so desire I will follow you if local and help unload and set it on its final resting place....... No charge no questions asked.
      If you guys can spread the word or ask any potential buyers that would be swell.
      I appreciate the help guys, And I hope the information I presented is enough of detailed enough.
      Take care
