    Cheers, i was thinking the same, its a shame they did not store it inside, and i will have to strip down all the electric to make sure they are dry prior to powering it, everything apart from the drivers and controllers ( spindle, motors, barings, hydro connections and cnccontroller ), has been exposed to the elements for at least a few months.

    a upgrade of main parts is looking like 5-6k, and maybe 5 days.

    So will decide in morning, its still worth it for the right price

    so, will see what deal there is to be done tomorrow afternoon

    true, i ment 5 days for swapping over the parts and testing the electrics, testing and setup is another story.

    Its a weigh up at the mo over time costs in salvaging/servicing parts, over replacing/fitting them,

    well, i put a very good offer in and it was not acsepted, with them being scrap dealers not machine resellers, they have not realised it should have been kept inside, shame really, but the rails and baering and ballnuts have rusted, i would have took a risk with the electronics, but when absolutly everything needs replacing, its not worth it.

    If anyone else was considering this, you need to go look before you put in an offer because it does not look the same as it does in the photos,

    What about this one?

    Wadkin UXFC CNC Router Touch Screen Ex University | eBay

    Its way over priced but looks in good condition, Might be worth 3000? They have had it up for a while might be looking to get rid.

    There have been some really nice Wadkin and SCM routers like this come up over the last 6 months, some had already been converted to new electronics like the one listed above. So I wouldn't get to hung up on this one.

    Take a look at the servos and drives and see if they are original or replaced along with the new controller. New drives should be easier to source and replace if you have any problems.
