    Post Mini Mill

    I recently purchased a Harbor Freight minimill which is similar to the Grizzly minimill product only a few bucks less and an R-8 rather than a Morse taper.

    I bought it to fabricate small parts and modify parts for my two Yamaha vintage road race bikes. I need to mill heads, fabricate spacers, modify existing brackets. hopefully bore cylinders etc.

    What tools should I buy???

    You might get some good feedback from the 1200+ member 'mini lathe/mill' discussion group at:

    I hope those vintage RR bikes are 125s or smaller.

    Yamaha TD-3 (250) and Yamaha TR-3 (350) early 70s 2-stroke production racers. That's why I said "hopefully" bore. The cylinder bores are 54 and 64 mm respectively. It will take some imagination.
