    Hello from Australia + request for advice

    Hi, My last big shipment I did through DHL. Went well but for sure not the cheapest. Be aware that the packing materials need to be certified. Probably the only real way to get it correct is to have a professional company do it. Australia can be very demanding on things like this.

    Hello from Australia + request for advice

    Maybe, but machinery is not so cheap and available as in the US. It could well be worth doing. I ended up buying a machine from South Africa and shipping it to New Zealand as it was the cheapest way….. even with $$$ for shipping.

    For Sale QS Merlin Castings

    Maybe some pictures would be good? You mention that some parts are complete? It would be helpful to have a list of what casting are started vs untouched. It is hard to gauge interest and value with such limited information. Regards, H.

    For Sale QS Merlin Castings

    Lathe swing designation

    The swing of the lathe is not the most important aspect when selecting a qctp. The top of the compound to the centre is critical. Can the qctp go low enough to get your size tools on center? Or maybe like mine it needed a small spacer under to get the best usable and most secure clamping...
