    Default looking for trashed gear

    I am looking for old litton proportioner parts and old manifolds that need rebuilt. looking for free or cheap shit from scientific shops that I can rebuild for my use. cradles burners, bunsens, bench burners of any brand. what have you got laying around? I know somewhere has a pile of stuff he offers peoples parts out of. Thanx if anyone comes through with cool shit.

    Forget the ring saw you can buy a cheap bandsaw almost anywhere and then a diamond blade from somewhere like Kingsley north and have it all at your door for a couple hundred bucks. I've been rocking a delta bandsaw with a diamond blade for years. It has delivered literally thousands of cuts and just keeps on. I covered my table with plastic sheeting corian (sp?) and added a water feed. All the bearings now a days are sealed and my saw wheels are aluminum.

    I do have tons of old lathe burners and all kinds of scientific stuff I would like to see gone but unless it's one particular thing you need I'm not just boxing it up and giving it all away. If you have a need for something in particular I'm definitely happy to help. To bad you don't live a little closer you could come rummage the warehouse.

    Gainesville fl if anyone is interested.

    I do have the cheap tile saw with the good diamond blade, but the cuts are pretty wide. I need a few more bunsens, a small cradle burner, and mini mecco tips necks and torches. I would pay money, because someone else would. I am eight hours. I think I maybe would wanna visit. I have a bunch of friends and could make a little tour at this point

    Any decent lapidary supplier should be able to get you a thin blade, and arbor adapter to suit your saw. I find the electroplated blades come really thin and give cleaner cuts compared to sintered/continuous rim blades. They don't last as long but they are the best for glass imo.
