Maho C Price is humorous enough that ok to discuss before auction over as no one in a million years will actually buy it.
Machine looks very nice but what a nightmare of a control. I'll bet the buyer of this "Deckel" thinks he really hit the jackpot. Wonder if this will show up on "Storage Wars" show? That seems to be the original paint or an amazingly good repaint job. If original paint, the machine would must have truly low hours.
That's a sign the control sucked from Day One - no one wanted to use it. Too bad. The mechanical look gorgeous but I don't mean aesthetically. WTH is that control anyway? Originally Posted by Mud.

An example of a case where "rare" would get me excited would be something along the lines of the Abene VHF-3 with the quill option. In that case, it would be rare, and desirable for me, maybe not for many.
There is something tragic about that Maho. Hi Guys! Yes, that would be me. I am the proud owner of this thing Looking at the basic capability of the Iron drug me in. Swing away vertical head with quill makes it a horizontal boring mill, power rotary table adds a nice twist, put on a horizontal index and the possibilities for the job shop are great. Shipping will consume about half of that. Since I just stumbled over this post in my search I may have done something else given this information.
However, the iron has possibilities I had never even imagined, I could be milling API ring gasket grooves in wellheads, align boring fair sized parts, doing the casual stuff.. I have seen a lot of jobs in my shop where my Bridgeport Series II Vertical manual was a darn lot of trouble to utilize. And I have never attempted anything horizontal on it. Ran as vertical. I am aware this could be a severe challenge.
Tragic may well be the outcome. But if I can bring her to life with modern controls, holy cow. Now, as tragic as what I paid, I am a job shop.
I may well bear the brunt of leaking off 5 or 6 grand, however, sometimes around here, that is the value of a couple days effort. Seller is jumping through all the hoops for me, including shipping. So, in preparation for the coming challenge, I am trying to decide what to do.
If Deckel Doctor can bring her up, I might just mail it to him. If I could dig up info on the antiquated control, I might consider running some jobs with it, 2 axis at once may seem horrible to you guys, but could be workable. Most jobs boil down to simple surfaces and bores around here So far I am just going CNC. This mill was to complement it, but after a lot of surfing, I think I might grab up a small CNC bridgeport as the Maho Battle plays out.
I am going to need milling support for my turned parts, and manual milling is going to soak up too much time. But I am searching for information wherever I can get it.
Blast away and tell me anything you have, good or bad. I thank you all. I think it is factory paint. But I scrutinized the appearance of the control console, and wonder if it was sat out in the rain. Yeah, I may have just committed hari-kari, but I saw the same base values.
I think it is low hours. And I wonder what it eats. I will probably wind up transforming. I am positive I can make dollars out of this. Uncertain the investment. Gotta be 's. I really think I need to toss the controls. This could be a bit bloody, but if you have any information on them, and they even wake up I could use some help.
You own Philips dead? Do you have paperwork? Thanks, Mark. Well good luck with your purchase, yes the things you want to use it for is one of the main reasons why this pattern of machine is very desireable for a small job shop.
I do hope all works out well for you and like others here I would love to see good quality photos of it once you get it inside. Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page:. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.
