I bumped into a 1982 Fritz WERNER VF 1.5 NC vertical mill that lacks some parts, namely the main motor a servo motor for Y axis, the control panel, and some other stuff, but most of the mechanics and electronic is there, a bit of rust here and there but all in all in a pretty good condition.
The "fritz werner" is the manufacturer from germany and as far as i could read on the net they are one of the best in europe, the VF is for Vertical Frasse ( german for vertical mill ), and the NC is for numeric control. It also had a mini tape used for recording and playing (copy) whatever.
I can get this for 1500 Euro (2250 US$) , so any info about this machine would be appreciative, like does it use ball screws ( i checked the Y axis and it moves pretty easily by hand but it has some free move on the screw shaft so i am not sure it does, but the screws are covered so i could not see them), has anyone dismantled or converted one to CNC, what motors to use ( the one on the X axis is rated at 19A and 110A peak, the one on the Z axis is huge so judging by the size is something like 3 KV of power), there is something big missing under the work table but the only reasonable thing i could think of was maybe a spring to help lift the table , etc etc.
Here is a picture i found on the net since it was to dark to take pictures there,
There is also another smaller vertical mill for 1000 Euro (1500 US$) most probably made by PRVOMAJSKA in Croatia, but it has all the electric and wiring screed up badly, mechanically except some rust on the Z axis, it is all good, X and Y axes can be moved by hand thru the small knobs on the front.
I will try to take some pictures tomorrow and post them here, and if i find a buyer for my AUDI i just may sell it and get both of the machines.
