just got the deal finalized for a used CR Onsrud tech series 145T12

all for 1 project.


4 axis 61x145 table 12 hp 24k rpm spindle


it will look like this ( only used it was a factory repo)

it has been almost 10 years since I have owned a cnc router, its at that point where buying time on one is a pain and costing more then it would to buy one.


I can't wait, been refreshing my g code skills.

That looks huge. I think it would take up my whole shop and then some.

I'm assuming that's not going down in to your basement workshop? :shock: :lol: :lol:

What's the weight and electrics? Are some/most of these 550?

not sure on the weight, but very heavy.


it has a 12 hp spindle and a 40 hp vac motor... 440 3 phase.

its going in my 40x60 steal shop.


to be fair its way more than I need, but the price was right.

1 better dust collection

2 more tool holders

3 material for the job I bought it for.



hopefully I can start making money this weekend.

Well I have been banging out parts for the last 2 weeks straight. I have to say, I bought too much machine... it can move then the 1 1/2" stock at max speed with the 12 hp spindle.


nothing wrong with that, just surpizing :mrgreen:

Having been in the cabinet business for years ( no CAD/CAM experience...." old school" ) I'm curious to see some photos.
