MACGREGOR 70 ANTHEM

 

 

 

HOT NEWS:   After 58 years of production, and 38,000 sailboats, the MacGregors are retiring.  Production of the MacGregor 26 has been discontinued.   Our daughter and son in law, Laura and Paul Sharp, have opened a new boat building business in Stuart, Florida, and are manufacturing a boat similar to our MacGregor 26.        Contact them at  tattooyachts.com

Since we are now making aluminum trailers that require very little painting, we have no more need this  booth.   We have moved the spraying of the trailer bow stand, hitch and ladder to our main fiberglass shop.
 

20 HP OVERHEAD TRACE ROUTER     $2900  SOLD

We used this router for years to accurately cut out all of our bulkheads, hatches, windows, mirrors, core material, tables and a wide variety of smaller parts.

It was originally used by Lockheed Aircraft for cutting aircraft sheet aluminum parts.   We no longer need this router because all of its work has been transferred to very pricey computer controlled automated gantry router.

A 4' x 8' plywood pattern board is mounted on a frame over the router.  A 1/2" stainless steel finger mounted  on top of the router follows the shape of each template that is screwed to the underside of the pattern board.  The router is manually moved so that the finger stays in contact with the shape on the pattern board (which is the exact shape of the part to be cut.)   The router bit at the bottom end of the router (usually 1/2" in diameter) is exactly aligned vertically with the finger at the top, and the router cuts the material on the table to the exact shape of the pattern mounted above.   It takes only a fingertip push to guide the finger along the pattern shape.

The router will swing around to cut everything out to a 10 radius in any direction from the center support

A trigger on the guide handle activates a hydraulic actuator that raises the entire router up and down, allowing the bit to plunge into the material being cut and raising it when the cut is finished.

The router will take up to diameter cutting drills or bits.  We normally used a 1/2" double fluted router bit.

It weighs approx 4000 lbs.

It is presently equipped with a large router motor.   A drill press or any other tool can also be mounted on the end of the arm and can be used to drill holes in virtually anything and guarantee absolutely vertical holes.   The hydraulic actuator can raise and lower any device attached to the end of the arm.

The router has a 20 hp motor with an inverter from 220 volts.  The router spins at up to 20,000 rpm

It is an amazing and rare piece of equipment.
