for those of you that read my "welcome" thread, may remember i tend to have a few projects going all at once. i don't plan it this way, it just tends to happen. well it's happened again. when i started to put the man cave together i wanted curtain machines and one machine i was after was a cylindrical grinder. i told a mate about this and he said i should look out for a Myford mg 12. so i went looking for one..... HOW MUCH!!! well forget that idea. fast forward to a few weeks ago...... a guy said to me "do you want a surface grinder?"... no thanks, i've already got one. "its a nice one, its got a chuck on it and everything"..... chuck??? thats a cylindrical grinder me thinks. what is it? "its a Myford mg 12" no thanks there mega bucks..... offer him £100 see what he says. two days later i get a call....."he refused £100 but said ok to £200" BANG...(thats me hitting the floor) a week later i went to have a look at this grinder. basically, its 8 years old and all it has done is ground rubber (little rubber wheels found inside printers etc) and its dirty. that's it. even if it don't work when i plug it in (no reason why it shouldn't) still a bargain at £200. i had to take it to bits so i could get it in the shed. so friday i have to hire a engine lift so i can put it all back together as the top bit alone (that's without the bed, wheel motor and chuck head assy) must be round the 500lb mark. i'll take a load of pics when i'm doing it.
