    Default 5" Victoria Universal Dividing Head

    I have just put up a 5" Victoria Universal Dividing Head on ebay, comes with tailstock and two plates however the condition is 'poor'. It will need pulling apart and cleaning to remove the 'flight rust'. Starting price is $50, am I being optimistic?

    Default Sale Price

So it didn't sell and they had to extract it out of the small room it was in and transport it to Bendigo. Not sure who actually owned it (the auctioneers or Boeing still) but now they have tacked it onto there next auction. It has been for private sale at $8000 +BP/GST. Has been stored under a tarp outside for near on 2 years (which I don't think would be a problem) and sitting on some tyres (can these big tables warp?)
    Will be interesting to see if it sells this time!
    Mark. Sold today for 2k plus RIP.

    Cheers

    That is a bargain for the buyer. They would have been better off though selling it to me for $800 I offered on the day of the boeing sale rather than transporting it to Victoria.
    Also a little birdie tells me you took home some serious iron from this sale yourself. Look forward to the unmasking and the copious photos when you get her home.

    Regards

    Guess what is going to happen to that granite surface plate... ?

    The guy is going to slice it up for kitchen bench tops. Apparently you can pay about $4000 for a 40mm thick granite kitchen bench top. He should get at least 10 kitchens out of that slab, and it's that desirable/fashionable black granite colour.

    At least he can claim his pizza bases are **really** flat

    Hi Mark,

    News travels fast. I picked up the DSG 1307. Will post some pics once I get it picked up. Now I just need sell something to pay for it and build my shed to put it in.

    Cheers

    What are these sorts of sales like these days?

    Price of machine tools still dropping?

    What about the surface plates they had there... not the monster one...

    Default Auction Prices

    R.C,

    First auction I have been to. My impression was that prices were cheaper than grays. I spoke with the M.D of J.W.Styles and he said the prices are dropping.

    Cylindrical grinder sold for $1000

    One nice 800x400 granite surface plate went for $50 + RIP but unfortunately I was at the cashier paying for my lathe and worrying how I was going too explain to the wife another expensive piece of equipment......So I missed out

    Cheers

    Wow a Kellenberger, one of the premier CYL grinder manufacturers went so cheap..

    Great for the bottom feeders like ourselves.... Sad for Australia...

    It was 1000 x 600 with stand, and yes you were in the wrong place..

    EDIT: Correction, it's actually 36"x24" Grade A.

    I'd agree with that, the prices on bigger machines is rock bottom, even the scrap dealers aren't buying much, there is a slightly larger DSG on another auction site at the moment, I'll be interested to see what it goes for.

    Lots of tooling went for next to nothing.. no one is buying. The only buyers are a few bottom feeders ( like me ).. I keep saying it won't last, in another few years all these machines will be gone.

    I got a pallet of odds and ends for $50, included were nice parallels, some Taft-Peirce Box parallels a big Taft Pierce Square,
    In other separate lots I picked up 3 machine vises 200mm News Yamatokoki FV190, ( Yuasa? ) fair condition, with a bit of work we will get 3 matched 200mm vises out of it.

    I think only one sold, ( might have been $5K ) the rest were passed in, no bids There was a late catalog addition, a big Nakumura (sp?) multi-axis was passed in at $14K as well..
