For Sale: 4 axis CNC milling machine

Thu 1st Dec '16

Advert ID: 28349

CNC
Details:
Open to offers.
Contact me for photos.

I bought this Denford Triac in 2013 from a chap who has a sideline in refurbishing Denford milling machines.
As part of the refurb I asked him to include a 4th axis on the new panel, and the 4th axis as shown in the photos.
He also fitted a lubrication unit that you can see on the left of the vertical axis.

The mill runs from a standard 3-pin plug, then the pc and monitor have their own plugs as well so you'll need three sockets.

The sale includes:
- Denford Triac CNC mill
- 4th axis
- PC running windows XP and Mach 3 demo, including screen, keyboard & mouse.
- ER32 chuck and collet set
- Selection of cutters
- Clamping set and vice

The machine weighs something like 250kg. There are two lifting hooks (red as can see in the photos), unbolt the oil reservoir and fit one of the hooks in its place and its ready to be lifted.

I don't have anything to lift the mill with so you'll need to bring a hoist and slings, the mill is far too heavy to man lift - OR - Currently the mill is sat on a trolley, so if you have access to a van with a tail lift this could be the easiest way for you to takeaway.

Reason am selling is basically just as I got my workshop setup we started a family and I haven't used it since, and it looks unlikely I would get time to for years to come. So all I've done is run the machine up regularly for the lubrication system and run the drives to keep it all serviceable.

Your welcome to come and view prior, but if the sale is already agreed then am not going to renegotiate on collection.

Buyer to collect from Leeds LS26.
Sold as seen, no returns, no refunds etc.

For Sale: Duralift 4500 Electric opener kit for up and over door

Thu 1st Dec '16

Advert ID: 28343

General
Details:
This second hand unit came to me already removed and disconnected and was from a working garage up and over door.
I have plugged it in on the ground and it does motor from its switch controls as I would expect it to with no hesitation.
There may be perhaps a link piece missing from the carriage bracket that travels up and down the bar to the actual door but it will only be a simple steel bracket.
The main thing is the motor and switch gear run.
Collection please as long and awkward although not too heavy. Easy carry for one person. Delivery may be possible for a cost but ask me with your destination.

Information: How to certify an electrical device for public use

Thu 1st Dec '16

Advert ID: 28342

General
Details:
Hi All,

I have a prototype electrical device which has been field tested for 4 years
(don't ask).

I am happy that it works and I would like to manufacture this device for sale.

Its simple enough. No more complicated than a car battery charger built the old way (i.e. no switch mode b*llocks).

Happy though I am that it works I am not an electrical engineer & have no desire to kill my customers. Can anyone point me at information on electrical safety testing for consumer electrical devices.

I am not trying to do this on the cheap. I will pay for proper laboratory testing I just don't know who to approach.

Thanks,

Wilson.

You can cut this stuff with ordinary scissors and likely it would spin well on a lathe.

Royal Mail large letter allows 0.75kg at 25cm x 35cm x 2.5cm so I could pack a good few A4 size sheets into an A4 envelope.

Anyone have any experience with similar situations and how to remedy it? I don't mind getting the soldering iron out if I know what to attack!

Details:
I'm looking for a top slide with its swivel base and tailstock from a Smart&Brown Model M? or similar size precision lathe. (about 31/2 - 4" centre height) I would need to make a new base for the tailstock so what it fits at present is not too important. This is for my refurbishment project of an Astoba / Meyer&Burger UW1. Cost is important, I doubt if I could afford original parts but I would like to make it usable.
All and any help appreciated.

Advert ID: 28304

General
Details:
Reference your posting #28299. I have found that an effective method is to use halogen type radiant heaters. The infra-red will warm you and whatever it touches without trying to warm the large mass of air in the workshop. It is instantly on and off so there's waiting for the space to warm up, nor waste when you shut up for the night.
1.5 kw heaters can be bought for c£13 each, will cost c£0.20/hr to run at max and can be set 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 etc.
Mount them on the wall or ceiling to radiate over the widest possible area, also most of the domestic ones 'sweep' from side to side to cover a wide area

Hi Chaps

Today's problem post is here ......

I'm freezing my tits off in the workshop and wondered if anyone had any ideas on heating ???

Don't want to wear a bulky coat while working , garage has a radiator but it's not work a carrot in winter .
Don't fancy installing more rads and my gas blower gives you a headache after heating the garage to near the temp of the sun .

I've heard of some using diesel HGV heaters is this a viable option ??
