Emco Maier Compact 5 CNC Lathes and F-1 Mills are Still Around and in use Today. We have been Selling and Doing Service Work Since 1985 in N.C. and S.C. and Include the US.  

The Emco CNC-5 is a Precision Machine when We Take a CNC-5 in on Trade or Buy a CNC-5, We Turn on the Machine to Check if it is Working, BUT we Never Move the Carriage or the Cross Slide MORE than a FEW Thousandths, WHY because ANY Rust or Nicks and Dings on the Ways can Damage the Underside of the Carriage and Cross-slide the same Applies to the Ballscrews, Even Discoloration on the Ways are a Red Flag to USE Caution.

The Next Step We Completely Disassemble The Machine and Clean Each Part, The Ways and Under Side of the Carriage and Cross-slide are Reworked and Polished, Gibbs are Re-adjusted, The Ball Screws are Cleaned and Re-adjusted, All of the Boards in the Control are Checked for Proper voltage and Amps, Any Parts That are NOT Functional are Repaired or Replaced. We Then Load a Program and Turn a Part, the Part and Program (on tape) stay with the Machine.
You can be ASSURED Every Function on the Machine Works (unless we specify otherwise) When it leaves our Facility.

We have Noticed Other Ebay Auctions Now Making Reference to Our Website and This Page for Information on Emco Machines, We Fundamentally Do Not Have a Problem with This Unless They are Intentionally Trying to Mislead a Bidder to Think that It is One Of Our Machines. Our Machines are Always Sold by amanus@vnet.net China Grove, North Carolina. ALWAYS Know What you Buying, STATEMENTS LIKE, The Spindle Runs, The Lights come on, The Slides Move, The Machine Was Cleaned, ONLY Mean you Have a MANUAL MACHINE Unless You RUN a Program and Cut a Part, Then Check the Finish and the Size DO YOU HAVE A CNC MACHINE, BUT If the Machine was NOT Adjusted Back to Factory Specifications YOU Have A CNC MACHINE That Makes Parts That are NO GOOD and Look Like They Were Made With A File. The Best Question to Ask is Have you
Made a Part with This Machine IN THE CNC MODE.

A CNC MACHINE HAS TO BE AS ACCURATE AS THE MICROMETER YOU USE TO MEASURE
THE MACHINED PARTS THAT IT MAKES.  1" OF MOVEMENT AT .001" = 1000 POINTS OF
MOVEMENT WITHIN 1".  AS WITH ANYTHING IN LIFE AND E-BAY YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Thank You
