I went to a local auction yard this weekend. And Came home with some new projects / tools.
A little 8" Logan shaper model ES8.
Clasuing model 8540 Horizontal Mill
The mill is 3 phase so I'll have to do some looking to see what it will take to convert it. I'm not sure the HP of the motor. That will tell me if I have a motor to swap out on it or if I have a VFD I can use on it.
Both units run well, they were pulled from a local High School after sitting idle (ish) for years after they closed the metal shop. I had worked for the school in years past, and have used these two machines so I know their in good working order. The shaper could use a better vise, and both are short on tooling but the price was good, and I've been on the hunt for a mill for awhile.
Now I have to clean a space for them in the shop, drill bolt holes in the concrete, and unload them. The shaper only weighs about 700lbs.... The Mill is a little over 1000Lbs.
