  • My $50 Hamilton Milling Machine and Other Auction Scores

    Went to a tool auction yesterday. Being a rainy day with nothing else to do, I expected there to be 400 guys there and deals few and far between.
    Boy, was I wrong. Some of the antique planes, Sorby lathe chisels and a few other things went a little high, but overall, stuff was more than reasonable.

    How about a Hamilton Horizontal Milling Machine for $50?


    It's cute as a button with a 3x14" table and a 1MT spindle.

    Next I bought its cousin, a Hamilton Vertical Milling Machine for $175.
    The spindle feed needs repair, but it's otherwise complete and functional.

    .

    And the matching 6" Lathe for $125
    .

    How about a Lisle Drill Grinder with Cast Iron Stand for $125?

    .

                      You suck worse than a garage sale vacuum with a hole in the bag and dog hair in the impeller.


                      You got some great buys there.

                      At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

                            You are in danger of creating a massive singularity of suck.

                            Well done.
                            This is the ending.... still your need is driven on (driven on) as we trigger one more bomb...
