  • Hamilton Mill

    Hi I am a "newbie" to all of this and I bought used a Hamilton Mill (made in Baltimore, Ownings Mill I believe). It is missing a part name unknown, (told you I was new to all of this). I will send digital picture upon reqest. I build, from gunsmith grade parts, .45 automatic pistols, and plan on maybe small brass blackpowder cannons and steam engines from kits. Would I be better off with a new piece of equipment or can anybody suggest a good used part location?? I can be safely classified as interested but ignorant on this type of equipment..

    They don't still make the machines but may have parts?
    I doubt it.

    Good luck.

      Hi Rockin'Ron,

      Welcome to the best BBS in town, just along the corridor you'll find the gorilla's (please do not feed!), out back you'll find some Ozzies, and a Kiwi. I'm a Limey, so I'm in the little house, the other side of the pond (when you get out of the town limits!)

      As for your Mill ..... why not post us a picture here on the BBS, so we can suggest what can be done about it?

          Consider making cannons in the 1â€‌ bore range there may be a market for that size. I have an one inch bore cannon, this thing is a blast to shoot.

              Turn the headstock around the other way and add the missing cross slide and you will have something like a round bed Drumond Lathe.

                Go to Tony's lathes
                Look under Hamilton Lathes Maryland. It is a combination lathe and horizontal mill. Interesting, I've never seen one.
