I have started with EMCO compact 5 lathe with a milling column. The machine is OK but milling in steel proved to be difficult. I sold this machine and I intended to buy a bigger one. Unfortunately installing this new machine would mean more space since working on a table top would no longer be possible. After cleaning up the clutter in a room in the cellar the new machine fitted in perfectly. A radiator from the washing room was demolished because he was never used. I have installed these in MY new workshop so I did not have to shiver in the winter. New electric supplies with driving power had also come. When this was all ready, I went in search for new machines.

After a lot of searching on the Internet I came across the company CRISPYN in Maldegem. It is a customer-friendly family company that feels very strongly about quality and service. They only sell machines and accessories they believe in for a 100%. For some years now they have had there own product line CRIMAC with selected quality machines. Therefore I have, to my greatest satisfaction bought all machines and belongings with this company.
Because I had already had bad experiences with electronic speed regulations on machines I only wanted a machine with a geared traction.
My choice for a lathe was a CRIMAC LC330, a splendid machine certainly worth the money. Six speeds can be selected by two handles. Six intermediate speeds can be selected by choosing a other pulley groove. This lathe also has the possibility to change the longitudinal screw direction. Through this it is possible to make left tread and left tool post and longitudinal feed. The lathe is delivered with a metal stand, two cabinets a ship shield and a full length splash guard. The right cabinet is occupied by the coolant pump witch is Standard Equipment. The carriage is also equipped with a halogen lamp. There is also a footbrake with a power off switch.

The CRIMAC LC330 is an excellent machine, but for me she had a big disadvantage. Because I make frequently threading on the lathe I had to change gears again regularly. I hated this, and I have sold them through a sales site. Then my choice fell on a LC310x910-3.
This lathe has a gear box for the speed control of the lead screw and the feed shaft. When I ran through the manual, I came to the conclusion that I had frequently to be change gears for a lot of threads. I calculated for a while and have made a new thread cutting table. Now it have to be changed gears only in a few exceptional cases. This table can be found in the upper box under Projects.

For a milling machine I opted for a MC45. Like my lathe it is a machine with a gear box. Six speeds can be selected with two handles. This machine has a dual speed electromotor so it is possible to switch over to six intermediate speeds. This machine is delivered with a metal stand with a cabinet.

The machine is delivered in three parts. The stand, splash guard the milling machine. It is advised to put a vibration muffling surface between the stand and the splash guard and between the splash guard and the milling machine. Because at first I didn't do this, with the result, the plash guard made a heavy noise during milling operation. Now that I have used a piece of very thin carpet the noise has completely disappeared.

The band saw I bought is a CY125 Profi. For the price I paid, one of the best I could find. This band saw has a large cutting size range, a adjustable drop cylinder, a quick grip vise and a automatic power stop. The saw can swing from 90 to 45 which makes it possible to saw contumacy angles. This machine is delivered with a metal stand. It is possible to choose between three band speeds by selecting a different pulley groove.
