  • Burke hand mill converted to leadscrew

    Since hand mills can be had fairly cheap, I thought I would share this. This is a fairly late model Burke that is pretty capable and stout in a compact package so I thought it was worth the time & money.

    I did a short write up in my PM blog. HERE

    Wow, Didn't that used to be green? It sure has come a long way.
    Clear that it's found a good home and cool to see you are getting good use from it Jon.
    Unfortunately I think I wiped any pictures I had of it too. I'll dig around a bit and see if anything turns up though.

      What do we mean by "hand mill?"
      Is that just saying that the table feeds are hand cranked?
      Or is there something else implied?

        The table was operated by levers not (graduated or ungraduated) hand cranks.

          Hey, Vince

          How it's going? You can have it back for time & materials.

          lynnl-It used to have a rack & pinion to run the table. Which can be handy. Some mills, like Evans cool Swiss mill, can be used both ways. I was thinking I could do some work like that with the rise & fall head if I had a real need. (the head is on a rack so you can raise above the work to return to the starting point)
