    CNC Router questions

    Ii bought a slightly used techno lc 5 by 10 in 2010. came with computer, enroute, dust collector & bunch of bits. paid 21 grand. 1 service call (my fault) & its still banging out the work. Techno was a partner w/ isel automation who makes the vast majority of the components for all the other routers. in other words... very repairable. i also like the fact that the rails are underslung so no debris lands on the drive track (shopbot). there are plenty of 4 by 8 techno lc's for short $$$. i like the 5 by 10 because other shops send me the oversize stuff. i have cut 1/2" aluminum plate with mine. find a slightly used machine, i saved 40 grand.

    Anybody reconize this truck

    Gotta say that Rocco makes sense on this caper. There are definitely easier things to steal so why go through all this trouble and risk with a identifiable piece of large equipment?? Must be more to the story than meets the eye. Curious indeed.......... Best its a repo- which is illegal in most places. the sign is a fixture, needs a court order to repo unless your paperwork is right. on my invoices i put " sign is property of spectrum signs until final payment is received. a deposit is part of this contract & will not stop removal of sign if payment in full is not received upon installation.

    converting Versalift from generator to battery?

    I have a 30 ft versalift 1995 era, when my onan generator needed a re-build i couldnt find anybody to do it. the onan ran the hydraulic pump off the engine. to replace the 5 hp onan was like $4500, so i bought a $3000, 22hp lincoln welder/ generator to replace it. i took the plastic cover off the end of the crankshaft & there was a 4 bolt pattern on the end of the crank, exposed. i had a machinist make a plate & a 100% true shaft & that couples w/the hydraulic pump. the boom runs great at idle, although at high rpm (welding) the boom runs pretty fast. one thing, the lincoln needs a counterclockwise hydraulic pump to do this. the onan was clockwise it is very similar to a wilkie setup. cost me about $750 & brought a lot more to the table. i have even brought my 250 mig & spoolgun on the road w/me. couldnt do that with the onan thats for sure. have an onan generator for sale cheap, needs rebuild. erik @ spectrum signs
