If you don't mind a bit of a wait, Harbor Freight runs a 25% off coupon a couple of times a year - usually one on the Black Friday weekend. For a $25-30 savings, it may not be worth waiting.
There's a lot of documentation on converting the HF mini-mill, but they can also take a lot of work to upgrade. From what I've read, they're still not a bad starting point at the price they're available at.
Let's get a mini mill. $599 minus 20% plus tax is $512.74 for us to split.
Glenn and I discussed what the Hive can front, and I say we do it (PM if you're curious, it's just not something that we should post publicly). Please bring whatever amount you feel is an appropriate share of the cost. I'd suggest $40-$60, and whatever we cover above the cost will go back into the pot for the next machine.
I'll buy it and bring it on Thursday.
I won't be able to make it this Thursday as my one boy has a cross-country meet that day and I'm chaperoning an overnight with my other boy that night. I'll drop off my contribution tomorrow at noon.
Those two tires went for $25. A lot of stuff went cheap. I bought 4 tires 4 weedeaters a battery charger a lawn mower a snow blower a walk behind string trimmer a tractor hood and 2 snow blades and a set of chains for a tractor for $155
