  • Any Chicago area guys looking for a mill?

    Hey fellas, got a line on an Index 745 mill in Chicago for $500 if anyone is looking. It looks like it would be a good buy for someone. Has a one shot oiler and a coolant mister, and some sort of power feed. It's got a QC30 spindle but also has a drawbar so NMTB30 adapters will work too. The guy only has a forklift for two more weeks - on that Saturday the forklift is being picked up by a buyer. Send me a PM if you would like his contact info. No affiliation, yada yada. Just trying to help out a nice guy. He has a few other pieces of equipment too, and is very reasonable and open to offers on a lot of it.

      Even if it is wore out you aren’t really getting a better drill press for $500.

        Absolutely, only concern is that NMTB 30 Tooling is getting harder to find.

          It's not that bad. I've got about 50 QC30 adapters for mine now, all acquired in the last year. I did hear this mill run, it sounded fine and the power quill feed appeared to be working. I didn't really examine it any further than that.

              Look at the Plate! I dont have any machines with call outs for the lube on a metal plate. That in itself is very nice. JR
