#28 may be up for sale

Hi all,

I am considering selling MM #28 instead of moving it to another building again.
5 x 10, standard build with 5HP 1/2" Aircooled HSD spindle. Dust collection tube, foot. Has Z height finding / zero attachment and Laser x/y display.

Will need new spoil board after move, but otherwise in working order.

Location is Orlando, Florida.

Price is Negotiable, 7-8K preferred.

Feel free to message for details.

Cheers,
Sean

Hi Sean,
Have you ever done aluminum on this? I'm looking for something to cut hull panels for welded aluminum boats, .125 and .188 material. Multi pass would be ok, and I could also upgrade the spindle if I need, and the structure is rigid enough for it.
Next question would be how to get it to the west coast of Canada It's a long drive!

Hi EM, for the cost of fuel today, it would be cheaper to actually build the table. The quick answer is yes, Aluminum is fine. On table #5 (and a few others on here) aluminum has been easily done on the the table and that was with a 5hp router. I have frequently done 3/16 as you ask about on this table with the spindle. The trick is the right bit. https://hartlauerbits.com/ in Oregon is an amazing resource for helping you choose and source the right bit, speed and chip load against the material you are cutting.
