Greg 2N (TX) said: (quoted from post at 12:31:26 12/29/12) I saw an RF-45 for around $2000.

You have a recommended source, any cheaper?

Unless I strike Texas Tea, I'm borrowing the bosses :)


You should be able to get a basic geared head machine for quite a bit less than that. Best price new is usually Enco although they show up used on eBay and Craig's list all the time. Mine is the Enco branded version of the RF-40 and I paid ~$1200 for it complete with stand, some tooling, and free shipping. Watch their Hot Deals monthly offers - they come up regularly with a discounted price and free shipping. My only regret is I bought the round column model. It's impossible to crank the head up/down without losing position and because of the limited quill travel you need to do that on almost every tool change. The square column is a lot better because it stays in place but also more $$$. Or if you get lucky on CL or eBay you might find something a bit larger for a good price. I found the old Cincinnati on the right of the RF-40 just 5 minutes down the road for $1300 including the rotary table. You might have to put a machine-in-law addition on your shop though ;-) I've toyed with the idea of selling the RF-40 now that i have the larger machine but it is so convenient and easy to use for little stuff that I can't part with it.

Alright now,

Maybe in the next life.
I think I'll just enjoy life and take it easy for a while.

Thanks for the info Dan, as always,

Hey, TOH! Does that PVC conduit move often enough that you need to monitor it with the level?

If it's just OCD, you have reached the level of my wife! (no pun intended - not!)

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Phase converters are very picky and require an aboslutely level exit path for the electrons :roll:
Actually the picture was taken the day i was installing the mill. Things were nice and clean - now it looks like this. Level is gone and so is a lot of the floor paint.
