    Hello good members,

    I have already posted about my Atlas horizontal milling machine and Craftsman lathe. So I thought I would show you my Grizzly G0704 vertical milling machine.

    A little background information first, I found this mill on Craigslist like just about everything else I buy for my shop. The person who listed it was going to make it a CNC but end up having a kid during that time. So he put it on the back burner until another time I guess. When I got there to take a look at it, it looked llike it had barely been used. So I bought it and set it up in my shop. 0327172254.jpg 0330170301.jpg 0521170104a.jpg 0425170337.jpg

    Congrats! You got a nice vise with it too! I have the 5 inch GMT and love it.

    Hello BFHammer,

    Yes, I really like the vise. The guy who I bought the mill from was going to make it a CNC. So he bought the vise, ballscrews, stepper motors and a bunch of other stuff for it. When I got there to take a look at the mill, it looked like it had never been used. It was just sitting there collecting dust!!!

    Here is a couple of pictures of the mill and some of the stuff that came with it.

    That's great - looks like you've got most everything to need to get started. And you will find that anything you don't have - the friendly folks here are always happy to encourage you to spend some more!

    Do you have a first project picked out? If you do you'll have to be sure to share.

    You also might want to share what you paid for that set up - I have a sneaking suspicion that you might have gotten a deal that would put you into :congrats::you suck:territory!

    Happy milling!

    Thank you BFHammer and SilverBullet,

    Yeah, I got a pretty good deal on the mill. Let's just say I got everything you see in the pictures plus more for less than $900. There is a lot more stuff I didn't take pictures of. The guy who I bought the mill from had the ballscrews and stepper motors to make it a CNC. But he wanted more for those items then what I paid for the mill. So I passed on them.

    As far as what I plan on making with the mill. I have already made quite a few things for some of my friends who have SxS's. One of which you can see in the above picture (the 2 aluminum parts). And I have made some replacements parts for my Atlas horizontal mill.

    Thanks again,

    Orangecrush
