I've been ordering a lot of machining stuff from banggood. I've ordered mainly carbide inserts and lathe tooling. They're already super cheap, but is there anything to look for during Cyber Monday? I'm hoping their carbide inserts will have even more of a discount, same with their carbide end mills and cobalt drill bits.

The only thing is it takes forever to receive the items. Takes like a month.

Some things on my mad-money list include a 3D printer, a digital level, and an optical tach. If you're having trouble coming up with a list of your own, feel free to buy and send any of those my way :grin:

I won't be getting my PM1127 lathe til probably after Christmas this year. Precision Matthews said 6-8 weeks on the backorder.

I"m trying to think of the things I need to order so I'll get them in time before my lathe comes in.

And Cyber Monday is the best day of the year to order since it's the annual holiday for these website markets.

Yeah, I looked it up, but I don't know what items are going to be on sale. And I don't know which items are worth getting. A lot of these machining items don't have any reviews. But I guess they're so cheap, it's worth doing a gamble, especially with even more discounts added during Cyber Monday.

Strange, when I first load the page, a $46 price shows up, then after a few seconds changes to $85.

I still see $46.99

I already have a DRO on my mill and a DRO installed on my upcoming lathe, though

Also, harbor freight has their engine hoist on sale for $99.

Sucks I bought mine for $179 just 2 months ago from them.

This is going to be all Pcmaker's fault :grin:, I've been chewing on this all afternoon for my needy lathe.
With even just the one scale it might be a deal. Get a long one and then look for a compatible slim-line for the cross-slide.
Here's it flashes $46.99 then goes to $85.99 also...
I managed to snag a screen capture...

That's what I thought, I was hoping you figured out the secret handshake.

Didn't buy anything. What I really want is for a good micrometer and caliper to go on sale.

I think that the cost of one of the scales, not sure though. You have to pick the pictures and add to cart each of the items.

Something else that interesting is that when you hover over the tab the 'title' of the page pops up, and it shows US$46.99

Price is dependent on size of the scale you choose.

When the page loaded I got the $46 price, but the default size was 1000mm which changed it to $115

Went through all the sizes and it changed for all of them
