• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. EDIT -> May 8/23. I updated another bunch of users stuck on email notifications. Try to login if you are stuck.

New guy - Taber alberta, Hello!


Brand new guy from southern Alberta, Taber. I found this forum in my search for a used lathe…. And decided to join up.

A bit about me: 30, electrician, instrument tech, metalworking enthusiast, along with CAD, plc programming, bear hunting…. And more.

As far as metalworking goes my current gear consists of grinders, sawzall, measuring equipment, a drill press, TIG/Stick welding setup, 3D printers, and tradesman’s tools for my two trades.

I would LOVE to find a Standard Modern 1440….. even a Modern with tools and accessories would make me happy….. any connections would be appreciated.

Before someone asks…. Yes I have electrical experience on machine tools and CNC, I also have significant experience with VFD’s and phase converters..…. If someone has a PITA electrical issue within a few hours of me i could be coaxed into helping out…. Especially for a hookup with some old quality Canadian Iron.

I will also try to check the forums for electrical issues and help where I can….I also have some drives on my shelf someone here might be interested in. I’ll post in classifieds.
