  • New (to me) mill

    ONE owner, low, LOW mileage, never raced, wheelied or laid down!

    No, really, the gentleman who owned it since new is a T&D maker with scrupulous and impeccable work and maintenance habits
    and the machine has been only lightly used the last 12 years.
    Yup, included the vise and DRO.
    The rest of the equipment in his cellar shop is testimony to tool maker pride and I'd have bought the whole place
    if it was for sale...oh, and had enough scratch.
    This will certainly last me 'til end of my days.

              Looking used now, NO sin at all but ...you know how it is.
              I think you owe those "machine tool folks" a nice thank you email. They did play an important role in your journey to acquiring that beauty.

                  Glad you found a nice one. I have a 3HP Taiwan made, large bed, with brand name DRO & power feed with under 50 hours that's gotta go.

                    I have been following your other threads on looking for a new mill, glad you found a good one. Dang that's looks good. I'm glad it finally worked out for you. And it seems to have worked out quite well. Enjoy it, I'm sure you will.

                      Really glad this worked out in your favor. Looks like a real prize with lots of good years left on it. 👍

                        Looks good for a 25 year old machine. If it was only used for 12 years, what was it doing for the other 13 years?

                            "Yikes"?
                            Whad'ya' mean, "Yikes"?
                            Nothing to be afraid of here.

                            It'll be here 8/1 if this monsoon takes a break.
                            And you must have better things to do than ghost me around.

                              Sounds like you'll find out on 8/1. Good luck.
