  • Anyone in St Louis looking for a Whitney mill or Atlas 618?

    There is a 618 available at an estate sale outside St Louis.

    Has stand, *milling attachment*, and what looks to be a considerable amount of tooling.

    There is also a floor standing Whitney vertical/horizontal mill. Has a decent sized table, and both vertical and horiizontal spindles.

    Link below, although the pictures are terrible, and don't show what they have very well.

    618 was going for about $300, the mill for $200

    I have no relation to the folks selling, I just went to the sale.

      If it't the yellow lathe it's not an atlas as it has at least one v way.

        I haven't the slightest what the yellow lathe was, it was gone when I was there.

        But the Atlas, which was NOT IN any pictures, was still present.

        Typical absolutely rock-bottom bad pictures. Why people do that I have NO clue.... the only tool you have to pull people in, and you fail to list important items, plus the pics are so bad as to be almost worthless. You'd think they didn't WANT to sell the items.

        Oh, yes, there was supposedly "a" metal lathe and "a" wood lathe. Apparently there were TWO metal lathes, and I dunno about the wood lathe. More seller idiocy.

        The seller claimed to have had a "machinist" come in and split up the tools into stuff for mill, and stuff for lathe. Which must explain why the angle plates were with neither machine, milling cutters were with neither machine, and so forth.

        I even tried enhancing the pic of the mill.... Maybe the NSA can do better, but when the pixels are almost saturated black, there just isn't any detail to be had..... I'm surprised the pic was not upsy down.

          Sounds like a very fair price on the mill if in good shape.
