Hello all,

I have been looking into purchasing a Lathe and a Mill. It has been hard to find good websites that review Machine Tools. Here are my favorites so far:

http://www.practicalmachinist.com (Good forum for standard size machines)

http://www.varmintal.net/alath.htm (Good Information on Mini-Lathes and Links)

http://www.lathes.co.uk/ (Great History Information about all Machines)

http://www.angelfire...rk/mwlinks.html (Lots and Lots of Links)

http://www.stagesmit...etal-links.html (Lots and Lots of more Links)

http://www.mini-lathe.com/ (Information on Mini-Lathe and Mini-Mill)

http://www.ares-serv...roduct&ID=82710 (This is Mini-Lathe that I would like to buy)

My dream Lathe, so far, is a Monarch 10ee 12x20 or a little bigger.
My dream Mill is a Bridgeport.

In reality, I might skip the Mini-Lathe and go straight to a South Bend 9x20. We will see.

Please add some more links,

-Matthew

Hi Mate
If you would like what is virtually a 120 page manual on using the Southbend FOR FREE - YES REALLY try this. I found this ages ago so cant remember the link but I did print out and bind the whole thing on commercial printer etc at work. It is your glorious US ARMY who make all thier manuals available on the web!!!!! They also have one on milling etc etc. I have just dug my printed version out and the addy is

Enjoy!!!

If anybody knows anyything about any SPANISH marques - would appreciate some advice - Cant se paying the shipping costs for a Myford or Colchester really. I've sort of hit the limits on the mini-lathe/mill I have.

Hello again,

Chris, I am sorry I can not help you, but you should go to here and ask the same question.

http://www.practicalmachinist.com (Good forum for standard size machines)


Here is another great site I just found.

http://www.jjjtrain.com/vms/ (Virtual Machine Shop / Shows how to use Machines with Movies)

check out the Library and Jay Leno Links.

Keep the Links coming.

Taking in consideration the levels of Myford and Colchester, I beleive the most dominant brand in Spain is the Pinacho one and I don't think its too expensive.

One that I always found very helpful in my work is actually an American one called MMS Online...see link.

http://www.mmsonline.com

Its a bit on the high end machining side but very useful.

Cheers
Eric

BTW
I've been following on the MMSonline for over 4 years now and even used to subscribe to their periodical magazine. Nearly 2 years ago they interestingly set up Tooling-U which is an online training facility for all classes of machining levels and I have to say that it has now become successful progressively. Have a look as you might be interested.

Here is another great site I just found. http://top-seiko.com/. TopSeiko is specialized in offering precision machining services.  They are also expert in providing custom machining services according to the industrial needs of the clients.

and if you need a forklift to lift your heavy lathe into position you could do worse than try granthandling.com  :iagree:
