I have this massive German Equatorial cradle that I will not be using, I will be using a larger cradle for my project.
This cradle weighs about 65 lbs, and can be shipped UPS. It is a raw casting, and is not yet machined. It is made of
heat treated T6 aluminum, and has already been heat treated.
Dimensions are 15" wide by 24" long by 6" tall. The hub is just over 6" diameter and has a cast 3" bore, so it
can accomodate a shaft of 3.25" to 5.5" diameter.
The first $475 can have it, plus a fixed $50 shipping/packing in the USA.
If you are making a large GEM, this casting will save you much time and money compared to machining individual parts.
7/9/03 - The first $375 plus $50 shipping can have it, can't go any lower than this.
