Topic: UPDATED: Free to Good Home!!! CNC mill in Lompoc, CA
OK, I have gotten authorization from the War Department to give this mill away. There are some strings:
--This goes only to a Lemons Team. Don't contact me if you are a fringe player and don't sign up for this forum just thinking you are going to score a free mill.
--You cannot re-sell it. Of course, I'm not gonna police your mill-selling exploits after you haul this thing away, but don't be a douche and try to profit off my brother-in-law's death.
--You gotta move it, which is no small task.
Here's the back story:
My brother-in-law recently died and left a garage full of machining tools. We have liquidated just about everything except for this. He used it to make parts for telescopes and had a nice little business going. You would use it, of course, to make cheaty parts for your janky race car. My brother-in-law would have approved.
I do not know a lot about the mill. Just what he told me before he died. He also had a few details up on a website. The milling machine is a 3 axis bed mill that was integrated by Webb. It's a Topwell 96 chassis (Taiwan) and it has a DynaPath Delta 40 CNC controller. The mill has a 5hp motor.
Mill is in operational condition although it may need new bearings in the head. New bearings come with it. My brother-in-law crashed the head into the table on two occasions. He was concerned that he bent the shaft; however, he later said the shaft was fine. I dunno.
Must be moved from a garage. Will require a fork lift and a big truck or trailer. No tooling comes with it. Just the mill.
I have this listed on CL for $2500. I am sure a thoughtful Lemons team could negotiate with the executor for a better price. The executor wants it gone. (The executor is my other brother-in-law.)
