That old mill is a Garvin, has 9x42 table, 3 phase 3 horse motor, chain drive from motor to spindle, variable speed drive and power drives to x y & z.

Oh I forgot to mention it is a #2 universal. Strange old machine, has back gears like on a lathe. JIM

Aw geez.. I missed that...a universal also..even better. I've lucked out with both my horizontals.. they are both universals.
