    Default what new tool are you saving up for

    I'm saving up for an Extech 250 Borescope. Something I can do without but pocket change, birthday money and Fathers Day cash will make it less of a hit....

    The Extech 250 comes with accessories and it's optional camera sizes go all the way down to 4.5 MM.

    First on the list is a mag drill with annular cutters in most common sizes. Then a powermax 85. Once I get those cheap things out of the way I'll start building a cnc table to hook the 85 up to.

    Portable- You remind me that I'm just working towards a few "cheap" tools to make my life a little easier. Good luck with the press brake. Oh, and did you get your shear working yet?

    Elvis, here's my small CS Unitech mag drill, I used it to build my shop press, for what I get into the smaller version is plenty of drill for me. I think I paid around $525 for it brand new back 2003. Unitech gave me 10 or 15 % off on the cutters. I wouldn't be without one now.

    There is a place in greenwood del, called billy warren and son. It is a welder/fabricators heaven. They sell new and used stainless, steel, aluminum stock, Wilton, jet, starrett, and lots of other name brand tools,welding rods, grinding wheels, pipe and pipe fittings, weld on d rings etc... They are also in the scrap business so they buy out big plants and machine shops etc... You can walk around this place for a week and still not see it all. They also can cut whatever length of metal you need with no cut charge. I have been going there for more than 15 yrs and every time I go I usually drive away with more than I intended

    Thanks Bob. It sure comes in handy. I still need to build the cable system to work the platen up and down. Now I do it by moving the cylinder out of the way and put a pipe across the top for my come a long to hang from, which works pretty good.
