Hi I've recently bought Pallas HO horizontal mill, but can't find much information about it.
Has anyone else worked on one, I'm trying to strip it down so I can move it.
Any help appreciated
Thanks

It appears to be a pretty stout milling machine. Tony's has some information on them;

Sorry, I should've said, I'd seen that page, thanks Jim

Here's someone who's stripped and cleaned one up: http://www.unionsteammodels.co.uk/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1250884394/6

and a bit more here: http://www.model-engineer.co.uk/forums/postings.asp?th=122807&p=1

Looking at the photos, I'd think that a useful improvement would be to add arms to brace the front of the overarm to the knee - just an idea.
