Top pic looks like an old mill.

Adam let me know if you have any smaller lathes and tooling you want to part with.

First item is a Shizuoka B-3V vertical milling machine.

Google is your friend. Look for data plates on equipment and google search it.

The two huge pieces were really the only thing I was unfamiliar with, I used the newton oscillating Platen sander a good bit, great machine

Machine 1 is a CNC mill, looks like it has a Fanuc 6M control early 80's era. Machine 2 is a CNC lathe, unsure of that control but it's older yet.
What's the blue and white machine with the lid open? CNC laser? If so I might be interested.
Do you know if he ever had them up and running?

Would 750 each on the CNC machines be reasonable? Just want the heavy things out of the shop

I would say so for the mill. Parting out the control, boards and motors are worth a lot more than that. I would say the mill would weigh at least 8k, but probably closer to 10k. It's hard to tell the weight for the lathe. It's control parts probably won't bring as much.

When all else fails, Red River Machiney South of Dallas on 45 may be of help. I don't have contact info handy.
You can send the machine info to them and get an idea if they can sell it.

What little I have learned about CNC equipment, is the older operating systems and computers were outdated many years ago. The controls are basically junk, they call those dead heads. The mill it's self, can be retrofitted with modern controls and made useable again. But that takes someone that really knows what they are doing. I spent a lot of hours ready about the early days of CNC controls a while back. Most everything uses G code now, which varies quite a bit, but still somewhat standardized. The early stuff from the 80s and 90s, was typically a case of a computer and operating system was made for a brand of machine and that computer and that would be the only place it was used. Once they died, they were usually useless and wound up like the machines you have, they would get labeled as dead heads and would sit collecting dust.

I have read it is possible to purchase modern controls and have the machines retrofitted and bring them back to life. Not something just anybody is going to be able to do. I would sure like to have both the mill and the lathe, but I have no idea who to talk to about getting them retrofitted and what the cost would be.

From what I've seen over the years is retrofitting costs almost as much as a new machine. That's why most companies don't do it.


OP, those are some cool old machines. Machine #2 looks to be an old NC (Not CNC) lathe. There is no display so it probably ran using the old paper or mylar tapes. I started out on NC's and to this day, when I write a program I still call them tapes.

If you have issues selling, you may want to look into donating it to a trade school. When I was going to TSTI 30 years ago someone donated a CNC machine and my assignment was to make it run. I succeeded but had no idea how to use it.
