Anybody have any favorite places to get Clausing parts, at non-clausing prices?
I came across an othewise good condition 15" Clausing drill press that has a bent spindle. Runout at the end (it has a morse 2 taper) is just under0.040" - you can see something is wrong. The rest of the machine looks great. It looks like it may be possible to remove and somehow hammer back into true, but if it breaks, that's the end of it.
Clausing has part 1625-10 in stock for only $546.20, which seems a little high.
Sure some place has a pile of these, even used for more reasonable prices. Know of any place to call up? There's nothing on ebay, been watching for the morse 2 ones for a while.
