    Pratt & Whitney machines

    Beautiful machine, but CNC has pretty much obsoleted them. The Deckel FP1 and FP2 have a spiral attachment that would allow for pistol barrel length, but those old P&Ws just go for the bucks. Things have changed a lot in regard to rifling, seems many people make sub MOA prefit barrels. That's a...

    FS: Nichols #8 tool room horizontal milling machine, $200

    Yeah, I figured it was for stability, but was curious why you didn't put on on the rear of the opposite site. I was going to put it on a pallet, but realized that it has a pallet on it already. After I get it moved, I may cut off the front so I don't trip on it. The eagle has landed, somewhat...

    FS: Nichols #8 tool room horizontal milling machine, $200

    I didn't get back to the yard until well after dark, and left the mill on the trailer. I'll go back tomorrow, there was a lot of traffic heading up into Gilroy...I have the 1-1/2HP Intermediate motor on my other Nichols and I have a 350 rpm I got off a scrapped mill, so I need to swap those...

    WTB: Involute Gear Cutters (List)

    No, not at all. I have been here long enough to know how machinists work, they only buy the tooling they need in most cases. The reason you were asked if you have deep pockets is that you have quite a list there, and even buying import involutes from Travers will be costly. The cutter I need is...

    WTB: Involute Gear Cutters (List)

    And it's an odd list as well. It is my understanding that PA of 14.5 and DP of 16 is the most common for machine gears, yet there are no DP 16s on that list and some of those would appear to be for obscure gears. Seems most likely it's an engineer gathering a complete collection of involutes...

    FS: Nichols #8 tool room horizontal milling machine, $200

    Ok guys, you snooze, you lose...but Nichols mills are like real estate...Location, location, location...it's all about location!;) Funny, I have a set of casters that I wanted to put on my older non-toolroom model, much like @sfriedberg uses on his mill. Charles is keeping the DC motor on it...

    FS: Nichols #8 tool room horizontal milling machine, $200

    Pic 6 shows the nut. Not hard to make out of durabar. Irony is I once offered you the extra motor I got from a Nichols I bought/stripped at auction. Should fit right on the mount. My plan if I get it is to leave on Nichols with the vertical head, and the other as horizontal. New shop is 30x40...

    FS: Nichols #8 tool room horizontal milling machine, $200

    I might consider it if you could hold it for a short bit. Looks like the motor's replaced. PM me, I have a few Qs before comitting.

    Trying to clear loft, sell OG redwood

    Sorry Stephen, unfortunately 350 bf is not very much timber. A friend of mine fished the bottom 60' section of an OG Redwood that was 11' in diameter during a storm about 10 years ago. He got 20,000 bf. He built an entire barn with it, plus a huge pergola on the back of his home. With only 350...

    yates american table saw

    Wow, didn't know that...I wouldn't use an 18" blade on it myself, although I do have one...it's an old HSS blade. A double 20" with a sliding table...that's much nicer than the G-89. I have a number of 14" crosscut blades I had re-bored to the arbor size. I also have a number of 16" rip blades...

    Wanted FP1 Slotting Head

    He had your FP2 in pieces, and had given me a set of collets in 1/8ths up to 1", but I thought they were SK40 at Dave's shop, which they did end up being...turns out Dave thought I had SK40, but I don't think the slotting head would fit in an SK40 FP1, but not positive. Anyway, I sent them back...

    yates american table saw

    That's incorrect. They will accept an 18" blade, but YA recommended not using larger than 16" blades due to the speed of the motor. Really nice saws, but Stephan is correct, would probably be tough to get $1k for them. It is a monster, 5HP direct drive motor running at 3600 rpm. The OP has all...

    Wanted FP1 Slotting Head

    OP, you lost out...but I wanted to thank you for asking, as rimcanyon probably wouldn't have posted without you doing so.🙏 Dave was a nice guy, like most of the people I have met from PM. What a nice shop! Dave lives in one of the nicest areas of California. Right now is classic Cali...rolling...

    Rivett in OR CL

    I don't frequent PM too often, but just wanted to mention that I spoke with Keith Rucker just after he got his 1020S and he mentioned interest in casting steady and follow rests. He has cast stuff quite a bit working with Clark Easterling at Windy Hill Foundry. Since there are differences...
