Now is the time to pick up tools. We had a local manufacturer consolidate tooling from all over the country into a huge warehouse. Im talking 20+ lathes in great shape vertical mills horizontal mills massive eccentric presses , everything. One room was maybe 100' x 100' and filled with collets dividing heads etc in 4x4x4 tubs.
THEY THREW IT ALL OUT!!!!! "FOR LIABILITY REASONS" HOME OFFICE ORDERED IT ALL SCRAPPED
They forklifted 12' long lathes out to tractor trailers and dumped on top of each other!
