Just brought home my first milling machine. It's a cute little thing, but sized about right for my workshop. From what I've been able to read about the Burke #4 on several forums, it is a capable little machine and will do what I need...for now. I paid too much for it, but it is in very nice condition, and out here in Utah, they just don't come up very often. Between this and a Chinese mill/drill machine, I chose this. It has the original geared motor, 115V single-phase, still has the belt drive and step pulleys for speed changes, has the 3-1/2 X 20 table, which also gives it the 12" travel in the X axis, and has the universal table that has 30* of rotation both directions. Table and ways are in very nice shape and the machine is tight, showing no damage other than a couple minor marks on the table. All the screws show just a tad more backlash than I would like, but certainly nothing that will affect the level of accuracy I need. Even has the original paint that is still in good shape. Just needs a spit-shine and cleanup. The one downside of this purchase - the one that made the price higher than I would have liked - is that it came with almost no tooling at all. No vertical head, no arbors, only 1 end mill holder, and a small, but very nice vice. So, it looks like I'll be collecting tooling for my little mill over the next while.
