    It was!! He handed me the bucket and pointed over to a toolbox on a bench and said go get everything that goes with that mill.

        What a great looking mill ! ! ! ! Something that size would be a bit over the top for my shop. It would stand out like Godzilla strolling the streets of Tokyo ! ! ! !

          Yes only thing I added was the collet rack. And painted the vice. Still have to repaint the swivel base.

            It’s a lot bigger than I was thinking. I’m 6’0” and if it didn’t have the power draw bar, I would need a step stool to get to the draw bar nut.

              That is a big you suck for sure! Why your suck is so big they won't need any oil pumps in your neck of the woods for sure! Great looking mill.

                  Yep. Acer is a fine quality Taiwan brand. That one will probably outlive you. Killer deal for 4K.

                    All it needs is a dro of some sort for the quill and maybe the knee. I fitted one of the digital Vernier types to the quill of the museum's drill mill, the type with the readout designed to be read with the axis vertical. Good enough for 0.0005" / 10 microns and it hasn't missed a beat as it stays swarf free.

                      You will find that it has discrete steps.
