Wellz, dropped the panties a little last week.
Bought some equipment, should show up to the house in about three weeks.
Getting closer to this shop becoming a reality now. I see light in the tunnel.
CNC 4 axis with CAT40 spindle and Anilam control. (4th axis not in photo obviously, had to purchase separately)
Brown/sharp surface grinder
Wilson hardness tester.
Also got myself (I'm so going to hell for this) TWO Baldor buffers that had been used for one week since they were purchased two years ago for (drum roll please) $399.00 bucks!
They belonged to an elementary school in Boulder, CO. They were used for a week long summer course on making jewelry in 2006. They have enclosures with lights and a vac port for dust collection.
It's a 1200 dollar set up for EACH one and I got em both for 400 bucks.
I'm still giggling.
Lets hope the lathe shopping goes this well. that's next month!
