    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg well here she is. Shes purrty and im just waiting on my collets and end mills in the mail. Trying to source out an original benchmaster vise although i dont know why a 3 inch vise wouldnt suffice!??? Anyways it has a 3/4 dayton 110v single phase motor and the table has been reground and new lead screws etc its tight and in excellent condition. Im very happy with it although im waiting to make chips with her for the first time since the restore

    Let me know what ya think!!!

    That looks great! I've been keeping my eye out for one by they do not come up often, so I'm trying to keep an open mind.

    Have you or anyone else used both this mill, and a modern mini mill in the Sieg X2 class-size? How do they compare from a practical perspective?
