It's not even a question, you need another CNC lathe for your well being solving all the problems!

Looking forward to the build, there will be one even if it's not the lathe you've found!

Good on you mate, cheers, Matthew

If I were you friend, I would say "RUN AWAY FROM IT". It reeks trouble of all sorts.

BUT if you buy it, it will make entertaining reading. Netflix documentaries will be distant second.

Please buy it Andrew. The last project one you refurbished was a fascinating read.
 

But I asked Andrew where the last one is now and what its new owner is doing with it - Andrew didn't reply!!!

I'm sure I replied !

It's on an industrial estate near Shoreham Airport making bits for high end optical telescopes - oh and it paid for a big chunk of the Tractor Shed  :clap:
 

Andrew,

Please forgive me if I missed your reply to my question.  But I do agree with Seadog that your commentary on that restoration was absorbing and educational.

Someone has been watching “wacky races” , apart from me that is, in their youth! Like the user name.

In Parliamentary Parlance :

"Can I refer the Honourable Gentleman to the reply I gave earlier"  :lol:

One of these days I'm just going to leave it by your gate with a note attached "Please feed (bar stock) and care for"  :D

Hey Andrew,

Are you sure you wouldn't like to practice on a poorly Mazak first? You know, to get your hand back in  :lol: :lol:

Of course, access is a bit of a pain right now, you can get to the back easily enough, not so much the front...

Plus it's a bit of a trek... but I do have a pool table to while away those "thinking" hours  :headbang:
