    Default ShopBot Desktop 18x24 4 axis For Sale

    Have a VERY lightly used ShopBot, 4 axis, 18x24 Desktop with 1.1HP 110V heavier duty router/spindle. The indexer system has been customized to fit a Unimat lathe spindle - which is tight and true. Also on the bed is another Unimat lathe so that the gantry can be parked over it while it spins at high speed for a 2d cut. The machine comes with an HP computer Windows 8 and Vetric software version 7.5.1. Spindle has been warmed up monthly (variable RPM) but machine has seen very little cutting use. Cutters, chucks, 3D digitizing probe, dust/protection surround (made from 1/2" acrylic) all with the machine. Machine is in Hope, Maine. Hate to see it go as it's a lovely set-up, just moving on to bigger projects. New from Shopbot currently would be over $9500+the two Unimats at $450 each! Asking $7000 - pick up. 207-763-2731 pinchbeckpipes.com

    Sorry you never got to use it much Chris, but then in the National Geographic vid that I look at from time to time to get inspired,
    You always look like you enjoy the manual tool "Feel" so much;

    Thanks Scott....owe you for showing the ropes on it!

    Also to mention, idyllic Camden, Maine is 5 miles down the road. Just a wink to say a trip could be well spent on picturesque Maine coast.

    The Unimats can obviously be taken off the bed - but the Unimat spindle coupled with the indexer motor is top notch.

    Happy to answer any questions. Chris
