Hi Steamer, I am sorry to hear about the business though, it is quite distressing for everyone when that happens. 

All the best in finding something new.

Dave:

Sad to hear this kind of news. But it is good to know the Tormach went to a good home rather than an impersonal auction somewhere. I know you'll make good use of it.

Thanks.
Hugh

I wouldn't get rid of a manual mill just because you got a CNC mill.

I'm running PathPilot on my non-Tormach mill and find it lots better than Mach3.

One week delay in delivery....dumpsters sitting in front of the loading dock.....so I brought home everything not nailed down...tooling contols cables , keyboard, jog crank, clamps, vice ect.   

And I've put the Clausing 8520 up for sale...actually it's a good deal, and reasonably priced for what it is and what comes with it....see below.

Thanks Bill...It's paid for,  but I have a few more days to wait,    the loading docks were blocked by dumpsters   They're tossing everything as far as I can tell.

I've got it skidded....and I've taking anything not nailed down that belongs to it though.
