Metal Cutting Lathe
Metal Cutting Bandsaw
Wood Machines only
Until I can get out of LA, or find a place with a yard, and/or barn/garage ($600k+ in LA - bup that), I have to deal with small machines, and not being able to use them most of the time. Tiny apartments w/ new mothers upstairs who <i>never leave</i> will be the death of me.
5400 CNC mini mill
4400 CNC mini lathe
Ryobi (all bought within the last month, none used yet - simply too loud)
small band saw
12" compound mitre saw
If you're in LA, and know how someone can find space in which to work for not too much money, please let me know. And if you're wondering - I'm here because of a good office job, but my heart lives in a spacious workshop, somewhere deep in the woods, with unicorns.
I have 9x42 Jet Mill with Newall 3 axis DRO, 13x40 Jet Lathe with Newall 2 axis DRO, 14 inch Jet Vertical Bandsaw, Jet 7x12 Horizontal/Vertical Bandsaw, Harbor Freight Drill Press, Sears 12 Gallon Air Compressor, Harbor freight Combination Brake, Jet Notcher, Welders (Spot, Stick, Tig, and, Mig ), Bison 12 inch Rotary Table/Tailstock, Kurt Vise, Metal Puncher, Metal Formers, etc. I also have a complete wood working shop. As of today, I donít know anything about metalworking. My mind took control of me after reading these websites and the dreams took over.
