Got some bits home plus a sweet old cabinet that was behind the lathe in the dark, ended up being full of collets and a few other bits.
I`m having trouble loading pix for some reason so im trying to trick puter into doing it.

Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

You have some work ahead of you getting everything cleaned up. Are those collets sized by 64ths?

Got some good stuff happening .. 440 that's some dangerous stuff.

How do you power these machines you're picking up?

I have a 10hp phase converter and a step up transformer so I have 440 and 220 3 phase.

That is a good way to go. When we bought a Blanchard grinder it was wired 480V and we had 240V 3ph in the shop. It was easier to get a step up transformer than trying to move 50 yr old wiring on the motor so it could run on 240V.

Make you wonder when the last time it saw sunlight.
Got it in the shop and opened/removed all the doors and I`ve got a nice fire going in the shop , should get all the moisture out of it.

Heck ya. No better feeling than turning cranks on something that's been forgotten for too long. Glad to see the move happened without incident. That transition on and off a trailer is always the worst part.

Now you can paint it a proper gray color when you take it all apart to clean the rust out.  ;D
