Is this worth 500 ??

apparently it was used for a year, the electrics stopped working so they turfed it outside and had a new one delivered.

its been sat outside for now about a year. Im not sure what the blue thing is on top. or if it is also included but on the basis a lot of photos have been included im assuming so

the story is, a friend of a friend wants it gone. Its a good 2 hour drive from here, and if I want it Il need to hire some gear to move it.

question is. is it worth it? assuming Il have to renew ALL the electrics?

Matt, IMHO the answer is yes. I doubt if you could use it yourself due to power requirements, but I would be prepared to give you a profit on it. G.

Would have thought that would be worth 500 squids in scrap alone, never mind stripping it down & selling off parts or trying to get it running yourself.

It's hard to say what it's worth. It seems to have rusted a lot, which is a shame as that would have been so easy to prevent. The Y-rails are covered in rust so probably useless, although the bearings may still be ok as they should have grease inside them. The spindle body is rusty, which isn't a big deal, but if the taper inside is rusty that'll need a bit of work to rectify. I'd ask them to send you pictures to show if there's any rust on the other rails and ballscrews, as if so it's basically 500 for a frame and possibly a vacuum bed system.


Im not sure what the blue thing is on top. or if it is also included but on the basis a lot of photos have been included im assuming so

Just guessing, but it might be the pump for the vacuum bed?

Matt

This machine is a typical xyz type machine, it's an imported machine. For the money you have bought a bargain. By the time you play with this and give it a clean up, a bit of TLC you will be like pig in sh*t. It would cost you six times that to import one and you should be able to get most of it going. Well done on the find, i'm jealous like a few others here. It would cost you that in steel just for the frame and get it welded on top? well?

Matt that looks like a good find, but where are you going to put it all. lol

The blue thing is a vacuum pump, which to the right person would be worth 500 alone, the rest of the parts are not worth a lot as most of it is cheap chinese rubbish and its rusty. You should be able to convert it to mach 3 or similer to run on single phase with maybe another 500 worth of parts/software.

A note on the rusty rails, these are usally case hardend so rust is not alway a big issue as a very light buff and oil will remove the surface rust

the liquidators have accepted my bid of 500 notes and ive just paid.

I havent yet seen it with my own eyes. just going on the photos. To be quite honest I know which city its in, but no idea where!

thanks for all the pm's dont mean to be rude by not replying. but ive had so many offers and quite honestly I have no intentions of selling it. If anything il sell the one ive built before I sell this one...(prefer the idea of this one as it can handle a full sheet of ply as opposed to pissing around cutting to fit bed.)

but im not getting my hopes up just yet until ive seen it

il keep you posted once ive established its weight and established how im going to move it... and for that matter... where am i going to put it? :D

That is going to be your next problem Matt, picking it up will probably be OK but what sort of access do you have at your end for them unloading & siteing it, best start looking around for an empty aircraft hanger by the size of it lol.

Make yourself four dollies for each corner and drop it on that from the off until you are finished sorting it out.

Well done Matt. I think you have got a bargain there. I have just bought this (ebay item no 18112020999) and it was delivered today. Its not working, so now the fun begins. The machine weighs about 4.5 tonnes and we used a company with a hiab unit to to collect it from the south coast, and offload it to a friends workshop (he has room and three phase electric). I have a set of machine skates and we have been able to move it across the workshop floor and hope to get it into its final position tomorrow. If you would like to borrow the skates you would be wellcome to do so, but you do need a reasonably smooth floor for them to work. Anyway, whatever you do, good luck. G.

G, Are you sure about that eBay number 18112020999 ..... It gives me 0 items found. A

Andy, you are quite correct, should be four nines at the end not three. I have just tried to enter the correct no on my ebay and it still does not show. Is this because it has now finished? The router is a Record SCM 120 built Feb 1999. there are a couple of SCM 120 S machines showing on ebay, The "S" model is basically the same, but has a pendant control. G.

Thanks asbo, thats the one. It is now in position and level, but I cannot do anything to it now for two weeks due to other commitments.
Can't wait to get at it though!!! G.
