So the opportunity has come for us to purchase a good working surface grinder.
Why do I bring this up? Well it’s required for discussion. In addition the time frame is short, otherwise I would bring it up in a regular committee meeting.
This machine is an AMW GS-1224BH
This machine has multiple levels of control for the table.
The magnetic chuck is an electromagnetic & adjustable for the holding power. It is 18x24 vise
It has coolant with splash guards.
It Weighs about 4500 lbs, couple different sources counter the weight between 3200-4500lbs
Very large bed compared to the Harig.
It’s relatively new, it was used a Dallas Morning News briefly before being sold to the current owner. The current owner has stated he has only used it a couple of times.
It is fully operational.
The asking price is 3500. He did say he would throw in a Ingersoll Rand Pneumatic Zimmerman Balancer.
Here is the predicament, we would likely need to come up with a spot to put said machine. Is not small by any means.
Also it’s 3500 so not a small amount of change.
Now for some pictures.
