Can anyone tell me where to find information on WEBB milling machines?
This one appears to have been manufactured in Tiawan. I have heard it called a "Bridgeport Knockoff". I hope that means I can use common parts from Bridgeport.

I will be getting one soon...the price was right.
All I have to do is figure out how to get it home.

I found an interesting web site that gave me some ideas on how to move the mill.

I would like to eventually add CNC control to the mill and have been reading the article
HSM has just started on retrofitting a Bridgeport Series 1 machine to up to date CNC.

Here are the specifications and a picture (if I can figure out how to post it) of my mill.
