Title: Shop Sale Score
Post by: steamer on March 30, 2019, 06:36:46 PM
Hardinge 5C quick index head with leaver collet closer.    Stiff and has some surface rust...but all there.

$20....     8)

No body had a clue what it was..... :disappointed:   I know cause they asked me what it was, and I had to demonstrate....

I'll get a snap and post if interested...

An estate sale score after someone passed? Iím sure that half the stuff Iíve got stashed around would be identified by my kids as ďmore of Dadís junk that Mom always complained about ď. Nice score by the way and at least someone has it that will put it to use. Iím envious!

Old machine shop that sat abandoned for many years.   The owner then horded all kinds of optical/physics stuff....obsolete MIT stuff.  Guys been clearing it all out for a while prior to razing the building

I think I found an owner for the old Hardinge Cataract Miller that was in there.

How do you index it. I dont see a crank handle in the pics on google.

I had a guy give me one like that but it's the Haas version with air release and motor to index. I spent about 100 bucks getting it runnung but Mach3 has control of it now. You are going to love it!!

The index lever is on the front.   The handle behind that is the spring loaded detent pin.   So   Pull the detent lever forward, and then index the spindle with the ratchet lever until the next index hole comes up.

Great score, and not much rust at all. What there is looks cosmetic only. Should clean up very nicely.

Might do that today...I've got a mess in the shop anyway that needs cleaning, to say nothing of the chips

I almost never find these deals.....so I jumped on it.    I also had the opportunity to save a Hardinge Cataract  Stark horizontal mill....and very early one.    I was successful!.....I found a new owner for her, so she's not going in the dumpster...it's a 5C machine with an arbor.   Spindle feels great!.    It felt good to save one from the scrapper....
