    This is a continuation of the old eBay (and other auctions) Metalwork Stuff and will be an ongoing thread as the original was.
    The thread is for anything to do with eBay and other auction sites.

    • Purchased on eBay
    • Etc.
    • Etc.

    I now declare Part II open for posts

    Go for it.....
    Cheers - Neil

Recently I contacted a firm in Sydney who have a couple of slideway grinders in use and they were happy for me to come in next time I am in Sydney to see them working which I thought was great in this world of OH&S control. Will let the forum know how that goes.

    The smaller one looks like it has been well used, and no pictures of the ways....

    Budget Machinery in the UK had a pearler machine, it was a late model BSA Churchill... 72" X 24"... Just a really nice size.. You get these big machines and you need big foundations to go with them, plus they take up a lot of room...

    Lanza bought that one in Brisbane... I do not think he has got it going yet..

    Who in Sydney are you going two... I know of at least two businesses with two slideway grinders in Sydney, plus there would be others as well..

    Hi Richard, I sent an Email to a couple of companies that advertise slideway grinding in Sydney. The only one who replied was cnc engineering (they used to be Grout and Darlington) in Smithfield in Sydney. Have not managed to get there yet but hope to in the next few months

    They don't look all that complicated - bit of work with a dividing head but an Al replacement would not be difficult.

    Default DSG lathe in Melbourne

    Saw this lathe on Ebay

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Lathe-met...item3a998498fe

    I have one the same ( but paid a lot more) and can throughly recommend. Don't have hardened ways so are prone to wear and given a bit of rusty colour on the ways you would want to check it out first. Very heavy at around 2.5 tonnes but he says he will deliver in Melbourne for free so that is a bonus. Super rigid construction and loads of power and if in good condition at that price it is a steal.
