    yeah, that's a great deal, congratulations. I saw that a while ago when it popped up but didn't realise that user was you. Looking forward to seeing pics of it in action.

    Did you get a threading dial?
    Nah I'm waiting and looking for the threading dial, or at least the gear. The original sale thread is still up in the SB forum at PM so its not like a big secret.

    How can we give a you suck without knowing what he paid?
    Super nice machine without a doubt. Best of luck with it.

    He already sucks, and admitted as much,
    if he said the price, people would start throwing rotten tomatoes at him, tar& feather, etc.
    the only variable is just HOW MUCH he sucks.

    Congrats, but you know how these things work... A better/cheaper one will turn up shortly after you buy one Must be some law of the universe. No matter, you have this one now. Enjoy!

    Yours might be an earlier type, but it also may be a similar type from another company, maybe Enco, or someone else. Ther are similarities, but some basic differences.
    Its very similar, but there are differences as you say. There is absolutely no manufacturers marks on it, all I can find is the same number "17" stamped on all the parts. The feed screw must be 20TPI because there are 50 dial divisions.

    Does it mount that way? The SB did, but the pic looks a lot more like it mounts on the compound. And it has the look of an earlier version of mine...I still have a Palmgren milling attachment, it looks much like that.

    Your plan of ditching the compound mounting is wise. There is just too much overhanging weight with the Palmgren to work well with the Logan, which is similar in size to the SB. Then you add the workpiece.
    Yup I didn't like the overhang, especially on a milling setup. It does mount to the compound. Paul Alciatore has a really cool set of plans for a milling table/sub-plate for SB9, that replaces the compound. I want to make that too, so I could do either way for a milling setup.
